We went to Montesacro Pinseria yesterday for the first time before visiting the MOMA. While not inexpensive it was outstanding and had a very authentic feel. Here is what we ate:
Sardella e pan tostado- a dip made with Calabrian chilies and sardines. Briny, spicy and umami rich dip served with toast. Excellent.
Ostia pinsa- Pinsas are Roman style pizza. This one was was topped with Burrata, shaved botarga and sunflower sprouts. The crust was outstanding- perfectly crispy, charred light and fluffy. Paired perfectly with the creamy cheese and salty botarga. Excellent.
Very interesting wine list.
According to the owner this place has been open about three years. This was our first visit and we were blown away. We will definitely be back.
Located in SOMA in a somewhat sketchy neighborhood
