The 38 Essential Rome Restaurants

Salumeria Roscioli
Founded in the historic center in 2004 by Rome’s premier baking family, Salumeria Roscioli does triple duty as a deli, wine bar, and restaurant. Though the menu is extensive, the real stars are the cheeses, cured meats (the burrata with semi-sundried tomatoes and mortadella with Parmigiano-Reggiano are particularly stellar), and pasta dishes (get the gricia, cacio e pepe, or carbonara).
