Voglia di Pizza

Voglia di Pizza near Campo di Fiori in Rome was truly a pizza dream come true! Whether you eat gluten free or not, the two brothers from Sardegna have really gone out of their way to please all lovers of pizza and haven't forgotten those of us needing to eat gluten free!
I had to ask them three times if they were sure that my Capricciosa pizza was really gluten free because it was as good if not better than other pizzas that I have eaten in Italy. I can't imagine how good there regular pizza dough must be! The pizza was akin to the fabulous thin crust yumminess that I've experienced at my former favorite hole in the wall pizza joint: Pizzeria da Baffetto.
I sat facing out onto the busy walking street of Via Giubbonari where the place is located and thoroughly enjoyed myself while washing down the delicate flavors with a tasty Spanish gluten free beer: Estrella's Daura. Which by the way was also the best gf beer I've ever overall I am so happy to say that I can live a normal and pleasing existence even when in Rome....I am doing/eating as the Romans do and can!


  1. Gretchen, you're really turning the whole Piazza Navona / Campo de' Fiori area into your 2nd living these days -- girl, you get around!
    These places are all being added to my Rome file, needless to say. And here's one for you, since you're always in the vicinity anyway: Some years back, a friend of ours in Rome took us to all his favorite places, one of which is "La Montecarlo", a simple Roman pizzeria/trattoria that does the best Roman appetizers in the whole Piazza Navona area. It's located in a little sidestreet called "Vicolo Savelli", and lines start to form after around 7:00 / 8:00 p.m. Anyway, we've been there on both our Rome trips and it was fab. And a colleague I tipped off just came back recently and said he and his gf loved the place. So anyway, in case you don't already know about it, there you go!

    PS: It's looking like Florence and maybe Milan between Sept. 13 and 20!! Any chance of showing up? Or have you got your girls' weekend going on?
