The panini rolls at Mordi e Vai are a showcase for classic Roman dishes, such as slow cooked beef and pork, meatballs, artichokes and even tripe if that is your preference. Service is fast and friendly and we certainly had no concerns about hygiene or...More

Great hot sandwiches served with low prices and a fast service - perfect for a quick stop in a less touristy area. Beer is also served. The Allesso di Scottona is their recommendation and rightly so...delicious...

Excellent street food located in the local market. Must try the trippa alla Romana, a Roman classic. Great value, not overpriced and full of flavor

Put the house music on replay and you have Testaccio,
an ancient Roman port and former working class
neighborhood where the bass is set to high almost
every night of the week. Its collection of discoteche
(nightclubs), street parties, and crowded restaurants
give it its well-deserved party reputation. During the
daytime, Testaccio is more easy listening than club
hit, the area is full of locally owned small

Mordi e Vai by Sergio Esposito, Roman cuisine, regional champion in 2013 in the category of street food (premium received by the "Gambero Rosso"). Stuffing sandwiches, mostly with simple dishes of Roman tradition and not only ... The tripe with tomato sauce and bacon, the Scottona allesso (house specialty), the picchiapo, the sausages (Cecchini), and then boiled dumplings ... one leads to another. Flavors, simple and raw materials of excellence! The meat, strictly "Scottona", the bread, baked fresh every morning from the ancient oven "Passi" in Testaccio, are some of the elements in a short time have consecrated "Mordi & Vai" as a must see for roman lovers of street food.
