Opened in the summer of 2011, Tonda quickly became one of the hottest pizzerias in town. The place serves thick-rimmed Neapolitan-style pizza like at Sforno, its sister venue. There are also outstanding supplì and trapizzini like at 00100 (also owned by Tonda’s proprietors). Tonda is found on a residential street in the Nomentano district of northern Rome, so just hop on a bus from Termini to get there, but be sure to book ahead, as it is popular with neighborhood locals, as well as gourmet pizza lovers from all over the city.
Though the selection of fried appetizers changes frequently, you will usually find supplì alla genovese (fried rice balls with onion and braised beef) and alla porchetta (with roast pork and Frascati wine). There are pizza specials too, like pizza alla carbonara, topped with an egg and pecorino romano paste and cured pork jowl.
