Possibly the worst lunch I ever had to pay for. Not very clean and over priced. I won't be recommending this place to any one.

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.
