Roscioli Caffè Pasticceria in Central Rome

How much is too much?? I thought of this when I entered Roscioli Caffè Pasticceria in Rome. Thanks to the excellent reviews by my friends, Roscioli Caffe` Pasticceria is now one of my favorite places to eat in Central Rome (near Campo de’ Fiori)

Roscioli Caffè Pasticceria in Central Rome

The Roscioli family takes both their coffee and pastries quite seriously. You’ll realize this if you end up visiting them around 8 in the morning. The place is packed with locals and tourists alike and there is literally no space to stand at the Bar! Not only is it noisy but also chaotic but that is half the fun 😉

Because…it is sooooo worth it!

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. The other one is called Antico Forno Roscioli. You can check out their book on the Roman cuisine here.

    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.
