Mirroring the original Mercato Centrale in Florence, the one at Stazione Termini (this is where you go to catch trains to the airport, Tuscany, Paris, Siena, etc.) is a welcome alternative to sad train-station food. Sprawled over two retail floors, the market is comprised of a restaurant and wine shop by Oliver Glowig, a café, and food stalls from local foodie standbys like Beppe e i suoi Formaggi cheese and street-food favorite Trapizzino. The set-up is a little ways away from the main terminals, but the promise of a good meal, plus the original Angiolo Mazzoni architecture, are worth the schlep.
