We heard that if you want the most traditional Roman food, you have to go to the Jewish Ghetto; Trastevere. Delicious!!! The starter platter with rice balls, zuchini, artichoke and cheese won us over immediately. The pasta was fresh, simple and bright with perhaps the best tomato sauce I've ever eaten. I even enjoyed my boyfriend's Linguini and clams (a... More

I was in Rome with my sister and my mother and a person who we thought we could trust (young and cool) recommended that we go to Piperno. We went and immediately thought that we were in the wrong restaurant. The question of "Is this the right place?" continued through the nite. We stumbled on this site by investigating the... More

Piperno seems to have a reputation of quality, and a few friends recommended it, so we disregarded AppleMaps incorrect directions and managed to find the byzantine alleyway where it's located. The place is old school, like an Bronx-ish Arthur Ave. restaurant from the 1970s. The staff don't really do English, and that's OK. The food does the talking -- in... More

This lovely restaurant lays In the heart of old jewish getto and is just a short walk away from Campo de Fiori or Sinagogue. It is a family run restaurant where you are greeted by the family grandmother who takes your coats and lets you inside. The restaurant has three lovely rooms and a nice interior. The menu consists of... More

I wanted to love this restaurant, but it was so dated and dusty, and the food kind of tasted that way too. The artichokes were great, but the fried zucchini flowers were so-so. The service was fine -- a little aloof and snooty. Overall, this place was so not worth the price. Wish I'd spent the money on other restaurants.

The best spaghetti carbonara we had in Rome. The fried artichokes are also very good and you will not find them and cannot be missed.

We love to dine at Piperno whenever we can but it's at its peak in summer when you can sit at a table outside and enjoy the quiet of Rome's Jewish Ghetto. Food is fine but be careful not to order too much or you won't be able to enjoy dessert. Not to be missed are the fried vegetables, cod... More

Seems to be gradually losing its stand, although it retains a strong grip on its personality..hard to find for novices, unique 1st class service in Rome. Excellent artichokes, fried appetizers and mani courses. To be' planned for special events given its price.

A stunning location which is a little tricky to find. Whilst tourists won't stumble across it the place filled up with American tourists in taxis - this was a bit of a downer. It seems that the artichoke and zucchini can be mixed, but ours were absolutely spectacular. We got a great recommendation on wine and pasta and oxtail was... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
