Italian Street Food

Recipes from Italy's bars and hidden laneways

By Paola Bacchia


Hidden behind town squares, tucked down laneways and away from the tourist trail, little-known eateries offer up some of Italy’s tastiest and best-kept secret dishes.

Italian Street Food delves into Italy’s back streets to bring you simple and regional everyday recipes enjoyed by locals. Whether it’s a morning pastry, a lunchtime crostino and wine, a late-afternoon gelato or a late-night snack of arancini, Italian Street Food brings a classic and much-loved cuisine into a whole new light.
