Lunch in Rome means many things. From a sit down lunch at a trattoria to lunch on the run where nothing but some street food will do. When the clock strikes midday, visitors in the historical center are usually looking for somewhere to stop and recharge for an afternoon of sightseeing. For those who want to take in a leisurely lunch, Nonna Betta in the Jewish Ghetto area is a delicious and unique option for roman and kosher fare. Or perhaps you've just wrapped up a morning in the Vatican Museums. This area is full of options for a quick lunch snack, but none better than Pizzarium - Rome's famous pizza maker serves up an unforgettable slice right by the Cipro metro.
And while for romans, pizza is a meal reserved for evenings, pizza-by-the-slice is acceptable at any time of day! Some other great options include Il Pinsere who serve individual mini pizzas with a huge variety of toppings and I Suppli in Trastevere (also famous for their suppli - fried rice balls stuffed with mozzarella cheese). On the topic of Trastevere, if you find yourself in this picturesque neighborhood at the lunch hour looking for something a little more substantial than pizza on the run, head to Pianostrada, a lab-style cafe where fresh and seasonal are the order of the day. In the center, Panini de Santis is the latest in all-day-dining and make delicious sandwiches with just about any combination you can think of. Buon appetito!
