Very Good Restaurant and Nice Service People. We spent a lunch here and really got the typical Lazio/Rome Food which was simply fantastic. The Location is nice and you can breath really to be in the typical italian restaurant. Suggested.

This restaurant came recommended by another foodie friend, we were not disappointed. The ristorante is rather difficult to find and many taxi drivers will drop you outside the synagogue at the side of the river rather than drive through the winding back roads. I couldn't...More

We had a delicious meal here on our second night in Rome. The restaurant is on a secluded alley, and sitting outside gave us a great atmosphere. We had the fried appetizer sampler, and the artichokes were so good we had to order another round!...More

Situated just outside of the Jewish Ghetto in a little alley that opens to a lovely outdoor dining space. The evening we dined here, the clientele was weighted toward locals out with their families. We had a leisurely dinner that included veal milanese and sweet...More

Thank "EatItaly" I suppose, but if Romans dined here once, as they did in the Tabernae and Triclinia of Nero's day, the New Goths from New York appear to have driven them off. It's like an NYU alumni getaway, a room full of New Yorkers...More

It took us some time to find this place, but with a little persistence and the help of a kind local we succeeded. The food and service were both good, but expensive.

Visited on my way back from the Jewish ghetto and on recommendation from my tour guide. Wonderful restaurant kinda tucked into a corner, appeared to be frequented by locals. Ordered carciofi alla guidea, an artichoke dish, also suggested by my guide -- it was unbelievable....More

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

Rome restaurants usually close one day a week, and that day is at their discretion. Piperno is closed on Mondays.

Hi Barb S. As other Trip Advisors have suggested, its a fair distance/walk from St. Peters and i would personally take a taxi. Re the language...we had absolutely no trouble in conversing with our waiter.
