It is basically thanks to Doppio Zero that I got my Masters degree.
This local bar has one of the best aperitivos in town.
Just so we are clear, an aperitivo is how you can eat AND drink on student budget in Rome.
The bar is located in Rome’s Ostiense quarter, basically in the shadow of the gasometro.
For €10, you can enjoy a cocktail from their drink list (or a beer/glass of wine) and an all you can eat buffet.
Think: rows of pizza, pasta salad, and grilled veggies (if you want to pretend to be healthy).
The spread is massive, which make this technically an “apericena” rather than an aperitivo because let’s be honest – you are not going to want to go to dinner after this.
And that is totally the point.
Doppiozeroo is always buzzing, but you don’t usually have to wait long for a table.
But the best thing about this aperitivo is not the pizza, or the young crowd, or the drinks.
It’s the dessert.
Nutella pizza and brioche?
Like I said: you are set for the night.
