Well certainly there are lots of pizza shops and also kebab shops where you can eat within reasonable cost. You may also try the take away foods in the ghetto area just to try something different. When I have little time to eat I often go there.

Ciao

Don't worry. Whether you address the locals in spanish, french or portuguese, chances are that you'll be considered a distant cousin more than a tourist. Speak gently (educated Mexicans are especially good at it) and the people will understand a lot of what you say, if not everything ... There may be a few traps ("estoy constipado", etc) but nothing much serious ...

If you eventually have to switch to english and if you haven't memorized a couple of sentences in italian, go spanish (french, portuguese...) first. It will help break the ice.

As for food, do not expect the Roman cuisine to be very spicy. You may want to do what some Mexican people do when they travel abroad : take with you a small (plastic) bottle of Salsa (Valentina, Habanera...) "to make it taste like something" !

Do Pizza. We found the best Pizza to be made tr "Fornos". Fornos are bakerys. Just look for a Forno sign and head to the back. There is a very good one in Campo del Fiori and one opposite Fontana di Trevi. 10 euros will go a very very long way

2 options: touristic menu (10 to 15 euros per person, some include a salad, a main course such as spaghetti, gnochi or lasagna, a dessert and a soda) in lot of places in the Casco Storico... or pizza (7-10 euros one pizza for two + drinks)

Casco storico? That made me smile. It means "historic helmet". I think you meant "Centro storico" (historic center of Rome). Or maybe it was your automatic spelling corrector.
