Rome - Great and CHEAP - Campo de Fiori

A very loud SHOUT OUT out for the cousins who operate "Street Food" Located at Via dei Balestrari, 34, 00186 Roma, Italy.

A small hole in the wall. Great hamburgers, chicken burgers and dogs (on roman bread - with fixins) - prices start at Euro 2.50 for a dog and go no higher than Euro 5.00 for a double cheeseburger. Massive size burgers, the normal hamburger will set you back Euro 3.50 and it's plenty enough for a big hungry guy. The double is insanity for the price. They have chicken and BBQ pork sandwiches as well as something called La Bomba all for Euro 4.00 each. Fries as well.

This was a great find as our 10 year old daughter wanted something regular sounding in the middle of a walking day. The sign stating 4 Peroni's for Euro 8.00 caught my eye and sealed what turned out to be an excellent lunch that was much larger and far more delicious than expected. Ok so it's not pasta or pizza, but when you don't want to sit down and drop Euro 60+ and/or are a little burnt out on pizza - it's a great stop, right near CdF. Lot of locals eating there. Two owners very nice young guys.

Thank you for taking the time to post your recommendation. It sounds good and I'm going to add it to my restaurant list for my Rome vaca next October. :)

Plenty of Italian food Suki. In fact no shortage of it - everywhere you look. We generally did not always want to sit down for food. Meals in Rome for us were very comfortable and good quality, however it takes some time - and pizza for fast lunch did get old. This was a little gem of delicious food at incredible value right up the alley from where almost everyone ends up at some point on their Rome walk-about.

I certainly do not go to Italy to eat a burger and fries! But I am glad you found something suitable for your child The food culture in Italy is so much better and even children learn how to cook and value the simplicity of simple cooking. I bought a cook book made for kids and in return the kids cook with their parent's.It's a wonderful book and just shows not quantity but quality is what's important.

I love your review! And I burst out laughing when I read that because altho I don't know your daughter, I have known some 10 year olds and I can imagine that exact thing coming out of their mouths while traveling internationally. I am so glad you found something that maybe felt a little more familiar for her and which in turn was fabulous. I appreciate your sharing it with the forum!
