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.

A Classic Roman Dish of Veal Escalopes with Prosciutto and Sage

Saltimbocca translates as ‘jump in the mouth’ because this dish is so delicious it seems to leap off the plate straight to your tastebuds! Tender slices of veal are topped with prosciutto and fresh sage before being coated in flour and pan-fried in butter with a little white wine to create a succulent sauce. This traditional Roman dish is fast to make and even quicker to devour!
