So we'd been out for a cheese-a-rama and stopped off for some vintage gelato but it had been a while and a few hours wandering the streets of our Roman Holiday had left us feeling a little Gregory (Peckish hahahaha, geddit?) So we took a vague path to re-knowned pizzeria, Baffetto. As we arrived we looked in to see a quaint pizzeria with a few tables and chairs that looked not so busy.
Unbeknown to us around the corner tables and chairs sprawled down the street, not so little after all.
We had to wait about five minutes for a table, but being that it was close to midnight and this many people thought this was the place to be it wasn't a bad thing.
With seats cleared and new paper thrown on the table we were off.
The menu had so much deliciousness it was had to make a decision but in the end we went for simplicity. A Nastro azzurro and a tall skinny can of coke to start, have you noticed that Italian beers are very light and super fizzy? Kinda just like the Italians themselves.
Then the pizza, oh the pizza. First we have the pepperoni, super thin, crispy crispy crispy and ingredients of such quality that just a scant scattering of pepperoni flavor the whole pizza and leave a beautiful warm glow in your mouth.
The second again with super crispy thin base, topped with fresh zucchini flowers. WOW. So simple, so delicious, ok maybe we added a touch of chilli flakes but we like it hot.
With another couple of fizzy beers, and a hour or so people watching on the Roman streets, it was the perfect late night snack.
