The Roscioli family dominates the restaurant scene in the area just east of Campo de’ Fiori. Their name is attached to a delicatessen, a coffee bar and to their bakery, Il Forno, in Via dei Chiavari. Il Forno serves delectable freshly baked bread, delicious cookies and some of the best pizza al taglio (pizza sold by weight) in town. Don’t miss the still-warm pizza bianca, stuffed with melt-in-your-mouth mortadella sausage.

Rome’s superstar baker and pizzaiolo Gabriele Bonci initially gained fame for his gourmet pizza-by-the-slice joint, Pizzarium, close to the entrance to the Vatican Museums. His bakery, Panificio Bonci, is just a few minutes away in the Prati neighbourhood. Here the chef showcases his breads, as well as a selection of pizzas and baked goods, all prepared with specialty flours.

Biscottificio Innocenti

Bakery, Italian, Vegetarian

Down a sleepy, cobbled side street in Trastevere, most visitors walk right past the unassuming façade of Biscottificio Innocenti—understandable, as there isn’t even a sign outside. But those in the know flock to this family-run biscuit shop where the Innocenti family have been baking their selection of cookies since the 1940s. Stepping into the shop is like stepping back in time; the huge 16m retro oven is the focal point of the room, and owner Stefania is always ready to welcome guests with a warm smile.

Forno Campo de' Fiori

Bakery, Italian

A longstanding institution in Campo de’ Fiori, the Forno (as the locals refer to it), is a bustling hive of activity throughout the day with both Romans and tourists popping by for their bread, biscuits and pizza. For a couple euros, visitors enjoy the late afternoon snack of choice, a generous slice of pizza rossa—a crunchy thin crust topped with a flavourful, sweet tomato sauce, wrapped in distinctive brown paper. Eat it out front while peeking through the window to see the bakers in action.
