With Gabriele Bonci now making his name known stateside a decision to visit the Bakery at Via Trionfale 36 came easily, and although Pizzarium rightfully gets a lot of press Panificio Bonci flies happily under the radar today just as it has since opening in...November 2012.
A part of Rome’s Trionfale district, easy walking distance from Vatican City but far enough away to not be inundated by tourists, it is even before entering that the smell of yeast is noted, early arrival still finding employees stocking shelves with an assortment of sweet and savory selections.
Offering everything from Suppli to Roast Chicken, in addition to Bonci’s celebrated Pizette, it is only after thorough perusal that decisions should be made, several Cakes weighed to price tempting but probably best saved for parties of four or more.
Open from 08h30 every day but Sunday, with a menu that shifts from morning to night, Breakfast should undoubtedly include one of Panificio Bonci’s all-natural Cornetti, in this particular case the version with Honey and Oats infusing an airy base of heritage Flour.
Always ingredient focused, Pizette come as small rounds with a chew like Focaccia and Bonci’s signature Potato topping should not be missed, though neither should the weighty and moist “Cheesecake” that one-ups New York-style by using Ricotta that is lightly browned atop a Jam-like layer of Cherries.More
We have been to Bonci's Pizzarium multiple times and absolutely love it, but for Christmas this year, we made the trip out to Panificio specifically for a Panettone and to try some of the delicious offerings Bonci often posts on instagram like Fried Chicken or...Fried Fish. Unfortunately they weren't serving the chicken and fish the day we arrived but we indulged in some pizza and bought plenty of Christmas goodies. The Panettone was better than it looks and I highly recommend grabbing one if you're in town around the holidays. We opted for the original orange and raisin but the others sounds amazing! The service was great and loved the experience.More
Tbh, we found the pizza to be good-average, yet not exceptional. The chicken was tasty, too. And the seating area out- and then inside again was funny.
Why do all cutlery and water cups in Italy (a country with a history of problems when it...comes to waste handling) have to be made of plastic?!
At least here they separate trash.More
The place is known as the Michelangelo of pizza and it really is. I don't understand the review that said they were waiting for more food other than pizza- This is a pizza place. So don't go there expecting anything else. There was no where...to sit so you stand and eat the best pizza ever. It is baked 3 times to get the crust just right. There are many varieties and suggest trying them all to share. we also learned that you don't get good pizza anywhere in Rome before 6pm
This is the place I'll miss most from my travels in Italy. We tried several pizzas, rice stuffed tomato, roast chicken and the porchetta sandwich. All of them delicious. Taxi there, eat, walk through Trionfale market on your way to the Vatican and you have...a nice day planned. Or do the above in the reverse order.More
