Take-out food is not a staple of Italian dining as it is in other countries. Meals here are usually long affairs, eaten in a restaurant or at home. Though there are places that specialize in food for eating on the go or taking out to a favorite piazza to enjoy there. The first go-to for take away food in Rome is pizza taglio, or pizza by the slice, which is available throughout the day. In addition to pizza taglio, the pizzerias on this list often have fried goodies like supplì–delicious fried balls of rice and cheese–that make a perfect snack. The best places for these fried snacks are I Supplì and Trapizzino, which also has trapizzini, a snack invented here in Rome by renowned pizzamaker Stefano Calegari that is something like a pizza pocket and all tastiness.
If you want to venture away from pizza taglio Rome has some good options. If you are in Monti, why not try some rustic snacks at Dall’Antò or a flatbread sandwich from La Piadineria. And in Testaccio, there is the hugely popular Mordi e Vai stand in the market where you can get tasty sandwiches made from an array of fillings that include meatballs or tripe. If your snack buds are craving something other than Italian food entirely, then head the Seven Lanka for some of their rice with curried vegetables and meat or their spicy, fried samosas.
