One of our most popular antipasti is mozzarella in carrozza, a dish invented in Naples but adopted by the Romans as one of their favorite snacks.

Originally, it was a way to use up leftover mozzarella and stale bread (although we use fresh mozzarella and bread, of course).

The word carrozza means carriage or coach in Italian: Sliced mozzarella is placed between two bread slices, which are then battered in egg and breadcrumbs and then fried.

You have to eat it hot while the mozzarella is still gooey. It’s the ULTIMATE Roman comfort food!
