The Best Street Food in Rome

Street food concept is popular in Rome, especially sliced pizza, tramezzini or suppli (fried rice balls). However, you can also find shops with food from different countries for a cheap price. It is important to note, food trucks are not that famous in Rome and most of the time you can meet them near main sites of the city or near bars and night clubs. Here’s what to eat in Rome if you want to pay less, but still enjoy high quality products:

Dar Poeta Alla Scala

As you may know, Dar Poeta considered as one of the best pizzerias in Rome. However, they also have a take away street food shop with various kinds of pizza slices, hot dogs, and drinks. Undoubtedly, among all street food shops, Dar Poeta Alla Scala offers incredible pizza in terms of price and quality. Their design is original because walls are full of photos with guests from different countries.

Located in Trastevere, Mammo is famous street food among students and tourists.
