Antico Forno Rascioli, Rome

Antico Forno Rascioli, Rome

Part of the Roscioli family’s food empire, this bakery churns out amazing baked goods for 13 hours a day, the smell of freshly baked bread filling via dei Chiavari from early morning. This is the place to get traditional breakfast pastries at the start of the day, or the best slices of “pizza rossa” – disputed only with the friendly competition from nearby Forno Campo de' Fiori – at any other time.

The pizza here is classic Roman style, which means it has a very crispy and thin crust that's sparsely topped with a pinch of cheese, crushed ripe tomatoes, and a dollop of olive oil. The various toppings are only available during traditional lunch hours; in the evenings, you can only get plain crust topped with tomatoes (delicious, yes, but it may disappoint traditional pizza lovers).

The lines here form quickly, especially during popular mealtimes, and ordering then is not for the faint of heart as most Italians don't seem to respect the idea of an orderly queue. Elbow up to the bar and order at the pizza counter (but make sure you know what you want or get ready for a gruff reception). After they weigh it and give you a receipt, take the receipt to the register, pay, then take the paid receipt back to the pizza counter to collect your food. They will wrap your slices in paper for easy carryout, as seating is very limited.

The bakers also sell “casareccio” (home-style bread made with white flour), flavorsome “pane di Lariano” and robust “pane di segale bio” (organic rye bread), as well as fresh sandwiches in the smaller alcove on the left side of the bakery.

Opening Hours:
Mon-Sat: 7am–8pm; Sun: 8:30am–7pm
