What people are saying
- Eater (2018) includes this among their 38 Essential Restaurants in Rome, saying “the pizza al taglio (pizza by the slice) is especially good; the unctuous toppings and crispy bases make a surprisingly balanced pair.” Eater has also published a fun video about the Forno as part of their Dining on a Dime series.
- The Monocle Guide to Rome (2017) “calls this a favorite among both visitors and locals for more than 40 years” and says their marinara and meat-topped pizzas are better than at the nearby Antico Forno Roscioli.
- An American in Rome (2015) says “the filled pizza bianca makes a great and easy lunch on the run.” Filled with what? Proscuitto and fig.
- Maureen B. Fant (2014) recommends the sandwiches on “super pizza bianca, including, in season (early and late summer), prosciutto and fresh figs.”
- Katie Parla (2012) says “This legendary bakery serves some of the best pizza bianca in town (their other pizzas aren’t quite as satisfying). Sandwiches are served in the adjacent annex for around €4.”
- The Guardian (2011) recommends “Crispy pizza bianca and thin pizza rossa (flatbread topped with tomato sauce). If Forno Campo de’ Fiori and Antico Forno Roscioli competed for the Roman pizza primacy, the former would win for rossa, while the latter would snag it for bianca.”
- The Food Lover’s Guide to the Gourmet Secrets of Rome (2010) calls this “the place to come for good rye bread and whole wheat breads.”
