Order food delivery and takeaway from restaurants in Rome
Although the traditional Italian dining culture might reject the idea of eating a gastronomic masterpiece while sitting in pajamas in front of the TV, this hasn’t stopped several delivery services from seeing Italy as an interesting market for business. In a city full of pizza lovers, with an increasing fondness for international cuisine, competition is growing among delivery services as they compete for the fastest delivery time, highest quality and best presentation.
HelloFresh is the world leader for meal delivery kits with over 7 million active customers nationwide and, after a long experience in other markets, has finally arrived in Italy.

Too Good To Go is the famous app launched in Denmark that allows you to purchase food from eateries that hasn’t been sold, preventing it from being wasted and thrown away. The great news is that it’s also available in Italy! You know what that means, right? You get to purchase top quality food at a super discounted price, while at the same time doing something good for the planet. To think that every year, just in Italy, 20 million tons of food is thrown away, that’s 15 billion euros annually. I’ll let that sink in for a minute… With Too Good To Go, restaurants, grocery stores and eateries can become partners and sell their unsold food preventing food waste. Some of the chains and restaurants that have partnered up with Too Good To Go are Eataly, Carrefour Italia, Gianfornaio, Alice Pizza, Mercato Testaccio and many others. Just download the app, see what Magic boxes are available and purchase them from €2 to €6, then go pick up your Magic Box. Every Magic Box purchased prevents the emission of 2kg of Co2.
