DESTINATIONS italy rome Dining Roscioli


Roscioli is one of the best establishments in Rome, where you can experience local specialities in a welcoming atmosphere. They have three locations within a block, which is split into a bakery, a deli counter, and a wine shop. From the varieties of cheeses, meats, and an outstanding wine selection to some unique takes on classic Roman dishes, Roscioli is a true gem in the Italian capital. It might be hard to score a reservation, but it's all worth it!


Rome's restaurants cater to all tastes. There are American steakhouses, Lebanese meze restaurants, Vietnamese eateries, and several haute cuisine establishments celebrated in the Michelin Guide. But when in Rome, do as the Romans do and choose the less extravagant restaurants and trattorias for a memorable and authentic dining experience. The Italian word for dinner, "cena", comes from the Latin convivium, which means "live together". Eating is a social get-together which consists of at least three courses — often even at lunchtime. The Romans do not eat dinner until nine in the evening. Rome is known for its Carbonara (made with egg, guanciale, hard cheese, and black pepper) and Amatriciana (made with guanciale, pecorino Romano and tomatoes).
