We stumbled across this place when we were searching for a short cut back to Capitoline Hill from the Tiber River. What a find! It’s on a short street off the main road in a traditionally Jewish/Kosher neighborhood. It felt more like a locals spot...More

A group of friends and I were taken to this hidden gem in the Jewish quarter of the city by a friend who visits Rome on a regular basis – and what a discovery it was! From the outside, it looks rather similar to most...More

Verry Good Carbonara and Matriciana. Nice place and people. I had tried Pizza Diavola, it has a verry thin dough...

I've eaten here before and the service was shocking but the food amazing. This time the service was pretty good and the food was just as amazing! Deep fried artichoke, zucchini flowers and the carbonara are highlights! Don't underestimate the scenery, you are sitting in...More

Amazing food (lasagna, pizza and fettuccine) in an outdoor romantic atmosphere! Helpful and pleasant servers, such a relaxing incredible dining experience! We came 3 times in our 6 days in Rome! We couldn't have been more pleased!

Eh, not much to see or eat here folks. More or less a typical Rome restaurant designed to cater to tourists. Why I keep eating at places like this I don't know. Actually I do know. You're tired, you've been walking around shopping for hours,...More

Found this little gem whilst walking around in Rome. The food was really tasty and the prices a lot cheaper than other places around the tourist attractions. If we ever get back to Rome will definitely revisit.

Food looked promising ... if they had bothered to deliver. Miserable staff.. unhelpful and incredibly slow. Forgot our pizza and no word of apology. Served others before us. Treat tourists very badly.

Nice little place with good side walk/street space, but I believe they must have been understaffed as it too a long time to get service. Bufala and Prosciutto pizzas were both very good and the local beer was fantastic. If you are not in a...More

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
