Historic Roman pizzeria which, for over 40 years, has stood out because of its 'family feel' and for its wide variety of pizzas. Sometimes you may have to queue for a short while, but be patient, the service is very fast and the pizza is really worth the wait! You'll also find mouth-watering bruschette, various salads, mushrooms, beans, and super home-made desserts.
We went there only one but for sure las time...
The reseurant was recomended in all guides of Rome.
We have to sit with other couple in one table. We wanted to order one pizza when the owner told us: ONE PIZZA, 1 PERSON, OR NOTHING!!!???? We start to discuss but without any result, so we just went out.
I don´t know how much money they had to paid to advertisment in this guides... but I will never go back there...
Myself and my girlfriend were very disappointed with this restaurant. We had heard very good reviews of this restaurant. We queued for 30mins and then to our shock were showed to our seats litterally crushed beside four other people. We could hardly hear each other having a conversation. Staff were rude and obnoxious. It was if they would get us in quick and out very fast. The pizza was very average too and as for desert awful.
I had long heard that Da Baffetto was a must-try in Rome. Let me save you some time: don't feel the need to try this pizzeria.
I did enjoy my pizza. Not the best pizza I've had in Rome but still very good. I don't think the pizza is worth the price though. I've found pizza just as good for much less. My issue was not with the price, however, but the service.
As soon as my friend and I had finished our pizzas, the wait staff cleared our plates and stuck an extra chair at our table as a hint to leave. We remained for a few minutes, finishing the bottle of water we'd paid for. After about five minutes a waiter came up to us and said "Come on, up!". At first I thought he was half joking, but then he kept motioning for us to leave and even told us "Let's go! Let's go!". He cleared our glasses and bottle of water before it was even completely finished. This is NOT the Italian way to dine.
-good pizza but overpriced for what it is
This place was decent food - certainly not the best in Rome. It's a little overpriced in the end for what you get. We were two people who speak Italian placed at the same table with 4 people who we did not know. We were fine with that. After we finished our pizza, the waiter did everything short of pulling the chair out from under me, we were forced to leave. We live in Rome, and this was the first experience we have ever had like this. I was completely shocked and will never recommend this place to anyone after the service we had.
I wish I had read the Yahoo user review before I even attempted to go to this place. We got kicked out of this place. We felt this was possibly due to their racist views, but after reading the reviews, it may just have been a day when the people were on dope.
Stay away and please discourage business for such places. Right in the vicinity of this street there are many restaurants that serve great, and some people said better pizza...
All things about BAFFETTO'S horrible service true.
By A Yahoo! Contributor, 7/11/11
Disliked: The inate sick rudeness and an attitude towards paying customers that warrant only the sanction of one never returning and the firm promise of a recommendation to all others to never attend.
Rome has many, fabulopus pizzerias , but as far as I can see , only one deserves a trophy for litterally despizing the customers that obviously sutain its very existence : BAFFETTOS !
We have eaten at da Baffetto many times over the past decades. Pizza has usually been good - not great; but service has always been terrible. This time, service was horrendous.We were the first ones to enter, first to have our orders taken and were served our pizza 1 1/2 hours later. Plus, even after that long wait, they served me a pizza I did not order, but I took it anyway because I did not want to wait any longer. We were annoyed by the long wait, however, what we witnessed (during our long wait) as far as other patrons being treated was appalling. As people attempted to enter the restaurant, the owner bodily pushed them out the door. Those with backpacks had them ripped off their backs. Three Japanese gals who were trying to figure out the (Italian) menu were publickly mocked for taking too long to order and two single woman, sitting together at one table were ridiculed for not immediately knowing what they wanted. The waiters constantly made snide, insulting remarks, in Italian, about the (non-Italian speaking) customers.One previous reviewer called this service "typical Rome service", which could not be further from the truth. We travel to Italy 3 times per year and have done so since the '70's. I can tell you I have never seen or experienced this type of "service" at any other restaurant I have ever been to. Why people make light of this treatment and put up with the long waits and average pizza, is beyond me. The only reason we ever went there is on Wednesdays when our usual pizza place, il Leocino, is closed. Da Baffetto has been endorsed by guidebooks throughout the world. I think it's time for the people who wrote those glowing endorsements to actually eat there and experience the disrespectful, humiliating treatment which the owners and waiters dole out on the patrons.
the pizza is very good traditionally served in old aluminum plates; the service is bad in the old "roman" way as most of all the inhabitants of the italian capital are rood, impolite and arrogant always looking for ways to cheat you, etc.; you will not get a receipt for the count, neither the credit cards are accepted as they practice tax evasion.
in fact the "romans" have a problem not only with tourists but also with all other Italians.
the service is bad but most likely you will get the same service or even worse in any other place in Rome.
anyway the pizza is very good and cheap and if you don't mind waiting ( for about 45 min as the customers are many and they do home-delivery also ) and don't mind the service ( after all they serve you a pizza, not 10 fancy courses) it's a quite acceptable experience.
We had heard about Da Baffetto and the "amazing" pizza, got there early evening to avoid the lineup. We were jammed in a corner, sharing with another group at a tiny table (not a problem, we heard not to go for a romantic experience); the waiters were extremely rude, almost as if they took pride in acting that way, and the topper was that after waiting 45 minutes to get our pizzas, we then had ten minutes to eat them before the waiter was back, yanked my plate away with one piece still on it, took my wineglass still half full, grabbed up the paper table cloth, told us the bill amount and walked away. I will never go back, the "pretty good" pizza was definitely not worth it, and I really felt sorry for the people who were queuing up to be treated the same.
I reccomend to visit a country and its food. The atmosphere in the Baffetto is very italian and since they don't have a lack of custumer and their VERY AMAZING PIZZA and have around the same price as a MC Donalds... Don't bother about lack of service and just get the best pizza you can have for around 7eur!
Don't go there for a romantic eve, your not going to dinner but go there to have THE BEST PIZZA (which is a snack to italians!! Locals stand in line, dont get better service (maybe a little). Just go for the BEST PIZZA and go with the flow. U will stay in line, and you have a chance of being passed by if the waiter decides that a table of 4 is better than 2 people. But the wait is worth it! I loved the athmosphere of the place. When im back in Rome ill have pizza at Baffetto!
