5 Fried Foods to Eat in Rome

The Top Roman Fritti You Need to Order

In Rome, the Italian word ‘fritti’ refers to the mouth-watering array of fried foods on offer at restaurants and street food joints across the city. Although they are consumed any time of day, as part of a meal or as a quick bite on the go, in Rome the true home of the fritti is the pizzeria. Romans will always kick-off a meal in a pizzeria with a range of fried antipasti which should be freshly cooked to order and brought to the table piping hot, accompanied by an ice-cold beer to degrease the palate.
