Antico Forno ai Serpenti – Monti’s Historical Bakery

Antico Forno ai Serpenti – Monti’s Historical Bakery

This historical bakery was founded in the late 1870’s and has been a point of reference in the daily life of the Rione Monti ever since. Now newly restored, the locale presents itself with a classic flair reminiscent of the 1930’s, an era that keeps inspiring many bars and restaurants in Rome.

The long-lasting history of the all-round bakery is based in part on its excellent ingredients. They only use biological flour from a traditional flour-mill located outside Rome and prepare their delights in a spectacular open space kitchen with giant windows to allow their clients to see the magic happen.

The second reason for the bakery’s longevity is its versatility. Starting from 8 o’clock in the morning with a dozen types of fresh sour-dough bread, cornetti with all imaginable fillings, delicious danishes and a myriad of other sweat-breads, this is an excellent place for breakfast, cappuccino included.During lunch hour, the Antico Forno becomes a cove of business-people as well as flaneurs rushing to find a table in order to enjoy their pizza or one of their daily hot or cold lunch offers. By afternoon the locale turns into a tea room while the evening brings in the aperitivo crowd for cocktails and their generous savoury buffet, which sometimes is accompanied by live music by students from the nearby Saint Louis music academy or upcoming artists in the Roman music scene.

The Forno is located on Via dei Serpenti, the street that leads from Via Nazionale to the Colosseum, in the very heart of Monti, an area rich in cultural, culinary and artistic up-comers, making it ideal for an invigorating stopover during exploratory rounds.
