The Rosciolis have been running this celebrated bakery for three generations, though the premises have been knocking out bread since at least 1824. Today it’s home to the finest crusty sourdough in Rome, fruit tarts, and addictive chocolate croissants, as well as exceptional Roman-style pizza bianca and pizza rossa sold by weight. Note that this is a take-out joint, with very limited seating inside and only a few stand-up tables out front—and the wider range of pizza toppings is only available from noon to 2:30pm. The phenomenal Roscioli restaurant and salumeria deli are around the corner at Via dei Giubbonari 21. And at Via Cairoli 16 is Roscioli Caffè, the latest outpost of the family empire, which offers breakfast treats, cappucini, and palate-pleasing panini
