Roscioli - Bread & Wine, Redefined

Roscioli - Bread & Wine, Redefined

Behind Campo de’ Fiori, hidden in a little side street, a distinct perfume of bread, cake and gold-brown pieces of heaven lingers in the cobblestone-clad vicolo. The delicate trail leads to an almost 200-year-old bakery, although that term is a crude understatement.

The first ovens were fired up in 1824 to provide the densely populated area with fresh bread, cakes and everything in between, an ambition that according to Marco Roscioli, who bought the bakery in 1984, was not quite ambitious enough. The family enterprise has grown and developed into one of the most renowned bakeries in town.

The success of the Roscioli family enterprise is based on a simple principle: to only use first-class materials. Their dedication to selecting special flours, fruits and chocolates results in delights such as chestnut bread with autumn figs or chocolate and quince panettone. On that note, the family has managed to perfect the classical recipe to a degree that reservations are necessary for some of their special versions of the coveted Christmas cakes, which don’t crumble, but pull apart into sumptuous pieces of heavenly delight.

During the lunch-hour, the Forno becomes a bustling cove of travellers and businesspeople alike battling for a slice of their favourite type of pizza; high or thin crust, Roscioli masters them both to perfection. Given the success of the bakery, in 2002 Alessandro e Pierluigi Roscioli decided to transform their speciality shop on via dei Giubbonari (20 metres from the bakery) into a restaurant and wine tasting venue. They have dedicated a lot of effort to restyling the relatively small space into a restaurant while maintaining some of the shop’s features, such as the glass counter where clients can see the ingredients of the typically Roman and Mediterranean delicacies on the menu.

The real focal point however is located a flight of stairs further down: the wine cellar. Their wine list includes over 1800 different names and the waiters, apart from the professional sommelier, are well informed and glad to help in choosing the right drops to accompany the meal.

For those wishing to learn more about Italian as well as foreign wines, Roscioli organises wine tastings with their sommeliers. Reservations are necessary due to the limited space, but also because they are highly coveted and reservations often need to be placed with some advance.

A visit at this culinary haven is an unforgettable experience, be it only for some take away, which in their case completely redefines the concept.
