Expert review of Le Piramidi

In a city where world food outlets are uninspiring, this Middle Eastern takeaway stands out.

Run by an affable Egyptian, this is Rome’s best North African and Middle Eastern takeaway, bar none. In fact, it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to call it Rome’s best takeaway. I travel across the city just to sample their falafel (made here with a mix of chickpeas and broad beans).

Food and drink: 

They do a full range of North African and Lebanese specialities, from kebab and kebbe through falafel to spiced rice, sambusa, couscous and honey-dripping beklawa. Drinks consist of water, soft drinks and beer from the fridge.

Ambience: 

It’s a tiny shop, with the counter on one side and the drinks fridge and a few stools on the other for those who want to perch and eat.

Service: 

Brisk and efficient. Don’t forget to specify if you want your falafel/kebab etc to be spicy (piccante), mild (non piccante) or medium (medio).

Location: 

Locate the Forno in the south-western corner of Campo de’ Fiori: Vicolo del Gallo heads off to the left here, towards Piazza Farnese. Le Piramidi is a few metres down on the right.

Price advice: 

A panino falafel (pitta bread with salad and falafel) or its kebab equivalent costs 3.50 euros.
