Supplizio has mastered the art of fried foods. Selling nothing but supplì and croquettes, the tiny shop turns out fresh fritti on a charming cobblestone lane in the heart of Rome. Not to be satisfied with a simple marinara and mozzarella stuffed risotto ball, Supplizio serves the fried treats in flavors inspired by Rome’s best pasta dishes—carbonara, arrabbiatta (spicy tomato) and cacio e pepe (cheese and pepper). Beer and wine are also available to wash it all down with, but in matching the street food inspired cuisine, seating is extremely limited.
Time Out tip: The shop is decorated with matchbook cars because chef Arcangelo Dandini (who also runs L’Arcangelo by the Vatican) strives to recreate the flavors he remembers from his childhood.
