Cineto Romano is a comune (municipality) in the Metropolitan City of Rome in the Italian region Latium, located about 40 kilometres (25 mi) northeast of Rome. It was named Scarpe until 1882.

It was a fief of the Orsini in the 11th century, then of the Borghese. Main sights include the baronial Castle and the church of San Giovanni Battista (13th century).
