The Testaccio market is one of Rome’s best covered markets, and many of the stalls have been in families for generations selling fish, meat, and produce, plus a number of food stalls that serve things like fresh pasta, pizza, and sandwiches.
Head to Casa Manco for pizza rossa that’s spiked with chili and a scattering of parsley and mint, or to Morde e Vai, a sandwich shop that serves up crusty rolls filled with stewed beef, tripe, meatballs, or straccetti. You can also grab one of the eight stools in front of Da Corrado al Banco 18 for a glass of natural wine and pick between their pasta of the day and the meatballs (alternatively, do both). The market is open Monday through Saturday from 7:30am until 2:30pm, though heads up that not everything is open on Mondays.
