A garden with social tables where you can eat, chat and watch the children play. The food brings familiar atmospheres to the mind.
This is Rosti, a restaurant in Pigneto that has invested all its energy in researching and selecting the best ingredients from the highest quality farms in Lazio and Tuscany.
Rosti will be closed August 15
from August 1 to September 4 it will be closed for lunch, and always open from 17 to 02
Rosti’s main goal is to offer its customers a place where to spend the whole day.
We start in the morning serving Italian and international breakfasts, Tuesday to Sunday from 9am to 1pm, then we serve lunch, snacks and dinners till late. You must absolutely try the Roman pizza baked in a wood oven. Saturdays and Sundays are dedicated to what we call “Grandma’s lunch”, a kind of brunch in a more relaxed atmosphere.
You will find a wide range of menus continually updated to satisfy all our customers even those who prefer a vegan or gluten-free menu.
What used to be a big mechanical workshop has been turned into what Rosti is today, a workshop of agricultural research and democratic cuisine, a project that guarantees complete genuineness in all aspects. The indoor spaces are divided in three areas: a central area that includes the foyer in which the floors have been left paved with the marble from the old workshop and two side areas with cement floors. Hanging from the dark brown painted ceiling beams over the large tables, are huge black and gold lampshades (the only touch of glamour). The walls are fire-brigade-red with thick lead-grey skirting boards. Strong colours, with no attempt of chromatic harmony in great contrast with the natural quiet atmosphere of the garden.
We would like to draw all the attention to Rosti’s factory of flavours, the pizzas, the roast chicken, the grilled hamburgers, all this enveloped in the atmosphere of an inn with a garden. Intentionally wanting the contrast between the candor, the hopes and the modernism of what Rome used to be in the 50s.
