What to eat in Rome – Trapizzino

Trapizzino: number one street food of Rome – Trastevere

Stefano Callegari’s ingenious invention gets a little bit more popular every day. The name trapizzino is a made up word, combining tramezzino (a triangular sandwich served in cafes) and pizza. Pizza bianca is the base of Trapizzino. This base is the ever remaining constant while various flavours change with the seasons; however there are four flavours I find every single time: Polpetta al Sugo, Doppia Panna e Alici, and Pollo alla Cacciatora, all Roman traditional recipes. It is the texture and the distinctive triangular shape that identifies the Trapizzino unique.

We grabbed some beer and enjoyed our Trapizzino in Piazza Trilussa, one of the most famous squares in the Trastevere district in Rome.

A monster in a mission to chase great food with her camera. When I’m not wandering around, I am organizing events and helping restaurants to communicate themselves to the world. Not a morning person unless you wake me up with a Bombetta alla crema.
