Expert review of Le Piramidi
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).
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.
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.
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).
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.
A panino falafel (pitta bread with salad and falafel) or its kebab equivalent costs 3.50 euros.
