When Trapizzino opened in the city, it changed the food scene down in Rome to a great extent. Their modern take on old-fashioned dishes and conversion of time-consuming food into quick bites made them so popular that today they are one of the top restaurants in the city. They started in 2008 and their calzones, tramezzino, and panzerotto gained quite a following. Ambiance is casual and fun, and the service is another great aspect of this place. Grab a pizza-by-the-slice and savor authentic Italian flavors on the go.
