Situated in the heart of Trastevere, this pizzeria is run by four friends who are constantly dreaming up ideas for new and extravagant pizzas. When it comes to taste, the traditional pizzas may just have the edge on the more creative ones. The calzone (folded pizza) filled with marscapone or ricotta and nutella is not to be missed. The home-made desserts are also good.
Although it's kind of difficult to find, but totally worth it! went there, because I had good recommendations from couple of friends (locals), and I now I know why. wide choice of pizzas, and incredible pastries. (calzone con nutela e riccota!!), the best of all - the service and the cosy atmosphere makes you feel welcome like home.
Pizza was good -not great, but much better than average. But wait was long, it was very loud (incl. the tacky guitar player who only made it louder), and space between tables was so small that you had to apologize to the person behind you when you got in / out.
The restaraunt was packed, we we hurried and like everyone else put on a table that was too small (I guess so we didn't linger). Lots of people there with Guide Books. The pizza was good, but I've had better in Brighton (UK)
I went to Rome in Feb for the 3rd time and I consider myself pretty well informed on Rome itself. Anyway, of course the food is amazing in almost any part of Rome, but Dar Poeta blew me away. We had been just walking around looking for a place to eat and met some locals who suggested that we check out this place. I don't know if I had a different experience than some that have posted, but we were the only Americans in the joint so I didn't notice that it was a "touristy" place at all - in fact, we left thinking it was one of least touristy places we had visited while in Rome. There were 4 of us so we ordered wine, bruschetta, proscuitto app and let the waitress pick 4 pizzas for us - all were amazing. I'd suggest that you check this place out.
I can't remember what the bill was, but we all left full and plenty of wine was flowing all night.. and of course, grappa at the end! I know it was one of the cheaper meals we had.
We have just returned from Rome after a 4 day break and loved the city. We ate out all the time and tried many restaurants recommended in our guide book. This restaurant is also recommended by Pizza Express in their guide to Rome so thought for our last night we would visit.
We arrived quite early as we'd read there are usually queues and we were right to do so. We managed to get the last table outside. The staff were english speaking but were no where near as friendly as had been hyped or we had experienced elsewhere.
We ordered a carafe of wine,mixed (vegetarian) bruschette and pizzas. The starters and wine arrived very quickly, the wine was very reasonably priced and tasted so. The bruschette toppings were interesting yet indeterminable. The pizzas were equally as average, I consider myself an officianado in mushroom pizzas but this was very ordinary. We also ordered the signature dar poeta pizza, I can only assume poeta is Italian for garlic! It really tasted of very little else.
On the upside even though it was busy we were not rushed out and the price was very reasonable 33 Euros which included coffee and water. Unfortunately due to the quality of the food on this occasion we would not recommend this restaurant to anybody.
I read the other (positive) reviews on this site and thought I would give it a go. There is no english translation on the menu, no menu out the front of the restaurant at this genuine pizza (no pasta) restaurant which is packed with locals. Get in before 8pm as they are lining up outside from 8.30pm and there were 20-30 people waiting when we left. Friendly service in English, but really this is about being a local for a night as long as you don't mind the wonky tables and graffitti walls. It's easy to miss the sharp right turn in the street.
Sorry everyone, after reading the reviews, my wife and I couldn't wait to get to Dar Poeta. The antipasto came right away, but we waited forever for the pizza, and it was frankly no better than other pizzas we had in Italy.
I think the title pretty much says it all. I studied in Rome for a semester and our program took us to Dar Poeta for the first big dinner. It was fantastic! Their pizza is the traditional very thin Roman pizza with extremely fresh ingrediants. Make sure to have the Calzone Dolce for dessert (it is enough for a few people to share). It is better than you could imagine. This place was so good, I went back probably 3 or 4 times throughout my stay in Rome, and every time it was just as fantastic as the first time. BEST RESTAURANT EVER!
Lived in Rome for a month and visited this place every week!
Don't be alarmed by the alleyway.. the food is great.
We went to the restaurant at 7pm and found no one around and it was actually quite scary. Turns out we arrived before it had opened.
By 9pm, there was a line 20 deep just to get in.
Quite crowded but great food for great value. You definitely have to try the Nutella & Ricotta calzone -- hands down the best thing I have ever had.
The intriguing name refers to the fact that the restaurant is right near Sergio Vertecchi's cartoleria Sergio is also the

Very popular with tourists and Italians who come from all parts of Rome. The young crowd calls it the 'morgue'
because of the marble tables and walls. Despite this, there is a lively, friendly atmosphere. The excellent pizzas can ...
After a walk through the fascinating streets of Trastevere, a lunch in a restaurant reminiscent of the Romanesque feel of
the banks of the Tiber will be very welcome. You can start with tagliolini with chicory and fish, then ...
