Having lunch at Nonna Betta"s on a warm fall day was wonderful. The fried artichokes were very nice followed by the pasta dishes and excellent house wine. Service and dinner selection was outstanding.

Went here for lunch, the place was packed so we were lucky to get a table. Being a Jewish restaurant they don’t serve pork, so the carbonara pasta doesn’t taste as good, but the food was still excellent. A great place to go for lunch...More

Tried this restaurant on the advice of a local, and were delighted with the choice. Turns out, Anthony Bourdain also recommends it, so you know it's going to be great. We started with the fried artichoke & it was delicious. My husband enjoyed the lamb...More

Ghetto
The mini-neigbourhood Ghetto holds tight to its
reputation as a stand-alone area thanks to its nearly
300-year history as the home to Rome’s Jewish
community. Times changed in the 20th century, but the
tiny area still retains its mix of tradition,
community, and history. Ancient and medieval
architectural design frames apartments, bakeries,
shops, and restaurants. Friends and families are the

Description
Nonna Betta - kosher style cuisine is an authentic Roman Jewish restaurant. Traditional dishes handed down by grandmother Betta are prepared express, using only seasonal ingredients. Among these, our famous fried platters, well loved for their feather-light texture. Aside from the variety with which they rotate, the oil employed for frying is used exclusively for cooking fresh vegetables and cod fillets only, that is never crustaceans or mollusks (that are prohibited) nor frozen products, which are totally missing from our pantry. The restaurant is cozy and pleasant. On the walls are large reproductions of art depicting vignettes of daily life in the Rome Jewish Ghetto before the late 1800s demolitions. In this place, immersed in a relaxed and welcoming setting, you can relive the stories of the Ghetto, and perhaps find answers to questions you "never dared to ask" regarding the Jewish culture, religion or the 2000 year-old presence of Jews in Rome.
