City Guide: Rome
Pizzeria Ai Marmi
Sit elbow-to-elbow at Ai Marmi, Romans' go-to pizzeria in Trastevere.
The real name of this buzzing Trastevere pizzeria is Pannatoni, but it earned the nickname ‘ai marmi’ due to its marble slab tabletops which locals also often refer to as L’Obitorio (the morgue!). Regardless of what you feel like calling it, if you are looking for a true Roman pizza experience, Ai Marmi is it. It feels especially authentic in the warmer months when the tables spill out along the sidewalk and the entire neighborhood piles in.
The service and surroundings might be a bit rough and ready, but the thin-crust, Roman-style pizzas which are cooked in a traditional wood-fired oven are undoubtedly delicious. There is also a great range of freshly-fried fritti including fried rice balls (suppli), mozzarella-stuffed zucchini flowers and battered salt cod. If in Trastevere and craving pizza, this is your spot.
