Our Favorite Pigneto Restaurants

We have tried practically every single restaurant in the area (not kidding!) and these are our favorite ones!
DRINKS/APERITIVO: If you're looking for a drink in a really beautiful setting, Necci is a must go. Plus, its only 3 minutes from the house! They have a beautiful garden terrace, great wine selection, and are open for all three meals. Try the Roman classic Negroni, or the lighter version Spritz.

PIZZA: This is our favorite pizza place in all of Rome, and its a 5 minute walk from the house. They serve pizza Roman style; you tell them which pizza from behind the counter you want and they weigh it out at the end. No joke, anybody that visits us says its their favorite pizza of the whole trip! Also, for lunch they have pasta for 6 euros along with different meat courses.

Farmer's Market

There are two farmers markets within walking distance. Make sure to go in the morning as they close by 1 oclock; sometimes earlier!
This is a large outdoor market that has lots of products: fruits and vegetables, meat and fish, bread and cheese. They even have other little stalls of various household goods and clothes. They are a little bit pricier than the other local market, but they are open longer and have more products available.

Our favorite farmers market. On the same pedestrian only street of Via del Pigneto where you find dozens of restaurants and bars, in the morning they have a farmers market featuring local Lazio farmers. They have lots of very good quality and cheap fruits and veggies, with a limited selection of cheeses, herbs, prepared good and even wine. If you want the freshest veggies to cook in the kitchen, this place cannot be missed. Cash only!
