I appreciated the Cacio E pepe pasta served with different types of amazing bread and the little appetizer offered to me before them. The pasta was really good and the portion was just right, not too much nor too little. Also I was offered some...French donuts with chocolate along with my coffee. I didn't appreciate being on the bar counter, while there were free tables and, being by myself, I was pretty quick so they could give me a table and tell me what time I should have left, rather than letting me sit there with no privacy as the waiters were walking around me non - stop. Very hot in there. Moreover, the waiter told me I could take the bread home, but didn't inform me that that would cost me 4 euro, as I notice after leaving, looking at the bill. I also saw they weren't clear in the bill, and declared a different amount of money than what I spent. I bought one of their products, a jar of Cacio E pepe sauce, but in the bill that wasn't mentioned. I paid 35 euro total, on the bill there was written 23. The problem is not the money;but this is about being correct. In Italy the issue is, we have good food and beautiful places but sadly the respect between one and another is missing. I'll post a photo of my tasty lunch because it was good ; anyway, I wouldn't repeat the experience.More

To start with the positives, the food was exceptional: burrata; cru di parma; and carbonara. All really great. 5* However.... Service left a fair bit to be desired, you feel as though you are competing with other tables for service, if you ask someone who...is not your waiter for anything there is 0 chance of anything happening. Once you do get your guy or girl great but takes too much effort....More

This was recommended to me no less than 7 times by friends, colleagues and family, and was already top of my list as an avid review researcher. Perhaps I had too high expectations but we were pretty disappointed. The food is good yes, not amazing....Service was average at best. The place is cute and is clearly popular. Compared to some of the other places we'd eaten at, we came away feeling that it was far too hyped up and overpriced.More

We didn't think we'd get to Rome this year due to covid but we did and Roscioli's is always on our list of places to eat. We had booked a table online before we left the UK and would advise anyone wanting to visit here...to pre-book. The staff were very attentive and helpful as always. Details were taken for track and trace. The food is out of this world and we always go for our old favourites of carbonate and cacao de pepe. The wine list is like a bible so be prepared!!! Great place to eat. We always ask for a table in the celler.More

We had a great dinner yesterday and we returned for a second time today, which was the day after. The service was horrible, the waiter was stressed and was running around, and they also put water on the bill which we did not order which...we told them and instead they added bread for another 4 euro. The bread were included yesterday which we also told them. Face mask was mandatory when paying even though it wasn’t needed when we sat at the table. In short a horrible experience and we will never come back.More

Cacio e Pepe, simple but best of Rome. Extremely smooth taste, almost silky. Nicely located in between piaza di fiori and forum romana.

We had seen Roscioli featured on a couple of TV programmes and decided that it would be the perfect place to celebrate our 2020 birthdays. We booked well in advance and enjoyed the experience. The interior is eclectic and a sight to behold. The food...was delicious and beautifully presented. The burrata was sublime and the carbonara was the best I've ever tried. The service was excellent too.More

I prezzi sono medi ma dipende da ciò che mangi e bevi. Puoi pagare poco o tanto, dipende anche dal vino che bevi. Se bevi una bottiglia di Brunello o un calice alla mescita. Va bene per tutte le tasche

Also does anyone know where the next best place to sit is if you can’t get up stairs further back the restaurant?
