We're a long-established cafe, bar and restaurant based in The Forum in Exeter. Originally called Rosticerria Italia we recently shortened this to just Rosti. The principle remains the same: we offer a delicious take on fresh, homely food. We're here for breakfast, lunch, coffee and takeaways to go, as well as being the perfect place to sit and relax with family and friends. We offer free w-fi and available for private functions, too.
