This is one of Rome’s best covered markets, and many of the stalls have been in families for generations selling fish, meat, and produce. Not to mention several food vendors 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, or meatballs. You should also try to snag one of the eight stools in front of Da Corrado al Banco 18 for a glass of natural wine (pick between their pasta of the day and the meatballs—or alternatively, do both). Just know that if you go on Mondays, some places might be closed.
