The pizza really was fantastic - the sauce was a little spicy, which I liked. It is thin crust, but not new york style. A 12 inch pepperoni pizza was ready is about 6 minutes and it cost me 6.8 euros for that fantastic pizza AND a beer.
If you're looking for ambience, go someplace else. If you're looking for great pizza, made by the same guys for the last 20 years, go here.
When I was there, the wood was delivered for their wood-burning pizza oven. It is the real deal.
Best Pizza in Town :-))
Wood Oven Pizza - thin and crusty - not to expensive.
Not a real restaurant - more like a take out - only a few tables w/ bar chairs or benches.
But the food is worth the journey.
I use this restaurant almost exclusively as a take away, if eating in be prepared for an intimate meal of rubbing shoulders with table neighbours and collecting your food yourself. Be aware that your order will be called out from the counter.
Da Cimino has the most deserved, unofficial title of The Best in Town so be prepared for crowds, if the crowds spilling from the door put you off walk the extra 20 yards to Mario & Lino, to my mind equally good :)
And a little teaser for the international guests:
Da Cimino is a small, crowded and real real real italian pizza 'restaurant' in the very center of Bockenheim, the bohemian quarter of Frankfurt.
I don't know, if the staff speaks english, but you can order by numbers - the wide menu is placed at the wall above the order counter. Your pizza or pasta will be made in front of your eyes and after the numbers of your dishes are shout out by a Robby Williams Look-A-Like waiter.
You can have your meal in the very unintimate restaurant or kind of outside, in a very unintimate 'garden'
You won't be served at place - but the quality of the pizza you'll get there beats everything and is it worth to bear a litte discomfort!
Thin crust pizza out of an old wood fired oven, can't go wrong.
They also have a long list of pasta dishes. The few that I saw looked very good.
Great pizza, freshly made, good reliable backup place for quick meal, probably best to stay away from the pasta
best pizza I've ever had (including home in NYC & also Rome). inexpensive and unpretentious too, though it's popular so don't be surprised if you have to wait for a seat.
