“Good place to eat italian dishes”
Review of Rosticceria

Rosticceria

The principle remains the same: we offer a delicious take on fresh, homely Italian 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.

These are my last few days here in Exeter, so today I decided to try this restaurant near High Street. It's like a self-service where you can choose lot of typical italian dishes such as salads, pasta and pizza.
I had only an half pizza and pasta with meat, aubergines and tomatos. Pizza is very much far from italian standards and in my opinion there are better places in Exeter where eat a good pizza, but pasta was absolutely perfect, an authentic Italian pasta.

Myself and my partner have been visiting this lovely place run by a fantastic, welcoming family for years. We popped in for lunch on Valentine's Day and as usual were not disappointed. The choice of Italian dishes on offer is broad, exceptionally fresh and always filling. Nothing is too much trouble for the owner/managers and even on the bleakest Winter day they offer a small piece of the Med at really competitive prices. Feel free to visit the faceless, soulless chains in nearby Princesshay for a surly, sterilised version of the real thing; if you like no expense spared on interiors and table service - or come here for good quality food, delightful people and happy memories. My advice? Park in the Fairpark Car Park just over the road and make this your first port of call.

What a lovely evening! We booked a family table for 6.30pm after reading fantastic reviews. We were not disappointed ! Sadly we were the only diners but this did not ruin the atmosphere! We could not have been made to feel more welcome than we were! The service was the best, warm & friendly, nothing was too much trouble. We weren't sure what we fancied so gave the owner free range to cook for us it was delicious, tomato, bacon & chilli pasta & tomato & aubergine pasta, carbonara & neapoliana pasta. Fresh salami & salad, garlic bread pizza & salami pizza. Strawberry gelato,Wine & beer, lemonade and enough food to take home & feed us for tomorrow all for £46! My little 6 yr old loved it and tried & liked new tastes. We will definitely return. Thank you so much

I have only been here for breakfast on a few occasions so can't comment on the main Italian courses, however it is extremely good value and also good quality, and they aren't frugal with the portion sizes like lots of places. For two huge cooked brunches with drinks on the weekend we paid just £11. The coffee is also exceptionally good, and the pastries tempting. The interior is very charming, as are the upbeat staff who create a joyous mood. It's unassuming from the outside and rather tucked away, so it's somewhere you would only happen upon by chance, but so worth seeking out. Just 2 minutes round the corner from Princesshay. (A 2 minute walk that will save you ££!)

We stumbled upon this great authentic Italian on our way back to the Car park on the Quay. I'm not usually an Italian food fan but this has definitely changed things! We were offered a choice of Fresh dishes with various Salads, i don't know the name of the Pasta and Sauce we had but the Plates were empty in no time. It was a lovely day so we dined outside, very pleasant. The owners could not do enough to make sure we had a great meal. This is obviously a well liked place, as evidenced by several returning Customers being on first name terms with the proprietors, a very good sign indeed! I therefore urge anyone visiting Exeter to make a small detour off the Main high street and down towards the Barnfield theatre and sample some Authentic Italian Cuisine at its' best! ..and at a very reasonable price and the Coffee is great too!
