Great Pizza Place in Rome!

You can't visit Rome without trying their terrific pizza! My favorite is the really thin pizza cooked in a wood-fired oven. Nothing like it! Our Los Angeles pizzas tend to be way too thick--too much dough. The thin ones pick up the wood cooked flavor nicely!

The place is called La Sacrestia--The Sacristy! That's the large room where the priests vest for Mass, and all of the liturgical items are stored. And it's on Via del Seminario--Seminary Road! Good friendly service.

My favorite is the one with fresh sliced mushrooms as the main topping!

In my opinion, this is the best wood-fired pizza restaurant in Rome--and they have wood-fired pizza for both pranzo and cena [lunch and dinner]. Most places only serve wood-fired pizza for cena.

La Sacrestia
Via de Seminario, 89
Closed Wednesdays

Really easy to find--just to the left of the Pantheon in the heart of old Rome. As you are facing the front of the Pantheon, via del Seminario is to your left. Just a few doors down you will find La Sacrestia.

After a great pizza with some fine Italian wine, allow yourself some riposo time--a little nap!
