Montesacro stands out for its oval-shaped Roman pizzas, a style that’s harder to find in the city. Rarity aside, these pies are delicious. The crust is crisp and bubbly and light, and the extensive menu means there’s a topping combination for everyone. Go for the maranella with housemade spicy pork sausage and extra creamy burrata, or the tormarancio with soppressata and very thick tomato sauce. Service is efficient and the space can easily accommodate groups, which makes this a go-to spot, especially if you’re seeing a show at The Orpheum nearby.
