Roscioli Review

More like a Caravaggio painting than a place of business, this food shop and wine bar is dark and decadent. The shop in front beckons with top-quality comestibles: wild Alaskan smoked salmon, hand-sliced prosciutto from Italy and Spain, more than 300 cheeses, and a dizzying array of wines. Venture farther inside to a cavelike room where you'll be served artisanal cheeses and salumi, as well as an extensive selection of unusual dishes and interesting takes on classics. Try the mortadella of Bologna with 3-year-aged parmigiano, burrata with Norwegian herring caviar, or go for pasta with sardines or Sicilian linguini with red prawns and cumin. The menu features meats, seafood (including a nice selection of tartars and other raw fish preparations), and vegetarian-friendly items. Reserve a table in the cozy wine cellar beneath the dining room. And afterward head around the corner to their bakery for rightfully famous breads and sweets.

    Loved it!

    Unexpected gem! Tight space sat in the shop area which wasn't happy about initially and now would choose that seat exclusively. Wine cheese salumi all oustanding! Wanted to go back again the next day but only in Rome for a few days so needed to try others. Wish we would have choose it tonight again instead of the disappointing overrated spot we did choose
    Roscioli was one of our topic,s in Rome and highly recommend it!
