Roscioli Caffè Pasticceria in Central Rome

How much is too much?? I thought of this when I entered Roscioli Caffè Pasticceria in Rome because I wanted to try everything- fresh panini, maritozzi, cornetti, coffee etc. It was thanks to the excellent reviews by my Roman friends that I went to Roscioli Caffe` Pasticceria which is hands down one of my favorite places to eat in Central Rome (near Campo de’ Fiori). 

Roscioli Caffè Pasticceria in Central Rome

Roscioli Caffe`  Pasticceria is a Bar owned by the Roscioli family. They take both their coffee and pastries quite seriously and you will realize this the minute you enter the place around 8 in the morning.

Roscioli is fully packed with locals and tourists alike. It is a typical noisy Roman bar that is worth visiting for coffee and pastries. 

There’s a small counter where you can stand and have your caffè or there is an option of going inside in the seating area. (Hint: free Wifi too!!)

For my coffee, I sometimes stand at the Bar like the Italians while other times I prefer to enjoy my cappuccino at leisure.

Roscioli Pasticceria in Central Rome also has a great selection of delicious Roman treats such as the heavenly Maritozzi pastry. You can even buy fresh bread for your dinner at home!

Roscioli has two outlets just a few meters apart- Roscioli Caffè Pasticceria and Antico Forno Roscioli.

  • […] Maritozzo (singular), maritozzi (plural) are sweet Roman buns/pastries. These are heavenly pastries richly laden with cream. Maritozzi instantly give a sugar high and are a must try when you’re in Rome. They are a great way to start your day and are best eaten fresh. The ones that I highly love and recommend are from Pasticceria Roscioli. […]

    It seems indeed like a great place for coffee and some pastries. I have to visit it the next time I will be in Rome. Thank you so much for mentioning this place to us. I wish I would live much closer to Rome so I could go there so much more often.
