Cencio la Parolaccia is a restaurant in the rione Trastevere of Rome. It is mostly famous for the behaviour of its waiters, who curse at or otherwise verbally abuse the diners, including tourists.[1][2]

The restaurant was established in 1941 by Vincenzo "Cencio" de Santis and Renata de Santis, who decided to combine a traditional restaurant with elements of folk entertainment based on foul language in Romanesco dialect.[3]

The restaurant has been used as the setting for some Italian films,[4] including the 1981 comedy film Fracchia la belva umana.
