Street food is trendy in Rome, especially sliced pizza, tramezzini, or suppli (fried rice balls). However, you can also find shops with food from different countries for a low price.
It is important to note that food trucks are not that famous in Rome, and most of the time, you can meet them near the city’s main sites or bars and nightclubs. Here’s what to eat in Rome if you want to pay less but still enjoy high-quality products:
Want to try suppli made by thin and crunchy breading, filled with rice, stringy mozzarella, and meat sauce, and covered in sour sauce? The best suppli of Rome is in La Casa Del Suppli. You will never forget this taste! Also, they cook excellent pizza.
I’ve tried sliced pizza in over 40 street food shops in the last five years. La Boccaccia goes in the top 3: high quality, a wide selection of pizzas, excellent service, and low price. Moreover, the quality of the pizza they make is better than any other “Pizza al taglio” place.
Food Factory is a unique street food place located in the Trastevere area. You can choose among a variety of Italian dishes with fantastic quality, but still pay less than in any other site, especially when talking about such a central location. There are famous Italian parmigiana, lasagna, different vegetables, various pasta, plates of the day, and delicious desserts. Food Factory is highly recommended for a visit since it is a unique place to eat high-quality food for a low price.
Located in Trastevere, Mammo is famous street food among students and tourists. First, they make American coffee with cream and syrup on the top, which is uncommon for typical Italian cafeterias. Secondly, they have an excellent choice of bagels, Paninis, sandwiches, baguettes, and desserts. Students love this place because of the discounts offered to them. Moreover, Mammo offers breakfast and aperitivo for a low price, where breakfast starts from 3 euro, and aperitivo costs 6 euro.
Trapizzino was created by Stefano Callegari in 2008 and is an invention that connects famous old recipes with the modern format. Stefano mixed the triangular shape of the typical tramezzino with pizza Bianca. Additionally, the recipes for the trapizzini were created after extensive research. Today, you can find more than 20 variations of trapezzini and choose the one you like most. This is an excellent choice if you are hungry, and its taste is incomparable.
Explore Rome in the most comfortable way!
Talking about 100 Montaditos means talking about a unique product, in which quality and originality are the distinctive elements. Their traditional bread is always hot and crunchy, prepared according to the exclusive formula, and offered irresistibly. Moreover, you can choose among 100 varieties of ingredients for your montadito. Finally, this street food is incredibly cheap and delicious. Highly recommend!
“Donkey Punch” or “Nel Buco del Mulo” in Trastevere’s sandwich shop and alehouse. They serve fresh products, and you can choose ingredients for your Panini. This place is also famous for its rock’n’roll design, and it is always full of guests in the evenings. Moreover, they have a wall covered with photos of their guests and bright moments.
Pizza&Mortazza is another excellent “pizza al taglio” or sliced pizza street food. However, they sell pizza from a small mobile Ape cart, and to identify their location, and you have to check one of their social networks. Pizza&Mortazza are already popular among tourists and locals. Additionally, their philosophy is to create economic but tasty and quality snacks. There, you will find a great variety of pizzas.
Pico’s is not just a street food place: you come there to enjoy food, drinks, and a unique atmosphere. They have a great variety of burritos, quesadillas, nachos, burgers, waffles, and many other delicious things. If you are tired of Italian pizza and pasta, Pico’s is always ready to help you for a reasonable price. Moreover, usually, there are discounts, such as every Tuesday 3 tacos + 1 corona beer for 7 euro.
Roman street food is rich in diversity and excellent in terms of quality. Even though the Eternal City isn’t cheap, there are many options where you can save money on food but remain satisfied.
