Roscioli Caffè Pasticceria in Central Rome

How much is too much?? I thought of this when I entered Roscioli Caffè Pasticceria in Rome. On my Winter trips to Italy, I frequent this place a lot, thanks to the excellent reviews by my friends in Rome. Everything lives up to the hype and I’d say Roscioli Caffè Pasticceria is a great place to eat in central Rome!

Roscioli Caffè Pasticceria is a Roman institution of pastries, coffee and good food!

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

My idea of having coffee is a mix of both, sometimes I stand at the Bar like the Italians while other times I prefer to enjoy my cornetto and cappuccino sitting and at leisure.

Roscioli has a great selection of pastries and I can easily say they are my favorite in Rome! And then there are 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.

  1. 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.
