Getting food on-the-go is surprisingly typical in Rome. You’ll see all the locals eating authentic Italian meals for lunch in to-go containers wherever you go. Here are some of the best take away meals Rome has to offer:
1. Roscioli Forno
Roscioli is one of the most famous restaurants in Rome. They have a pastry shop, a formal restaurant, and a bakery. At the bakery, they have pizza, pasta, bread, pies, vegetables, and more. However, you MUST get the Pesto Pizza. It is life changing.
2. I Suppli
This hole in the wall has become one of our favorite take-away spots. It’s famous for a Roman classic: Suppli, a fried ball of rice with different fillings inside—like meat or eggplant with mozzarella and tomato sauce. Additionally, their pasta is unreal. They also have pizza. Go here.
If you’re spending a day near the Spanish Steps, this take-out pasta is necessary. For only 4 euros, you get homemade pasta made fresh every day. Each morning, they create only two types of pasta dishes and there will be a line down the street before they even open—it’s that good. Side-note: after this, go to Magnum for dessert and customize your own ice cream bar.
