Hidden away in the Jewish ghetto section of Rome, this old restaurant is clearly a mainstay, maintaining old world traditions and a fine dining atmosphere. We had suppli, potato croquettes, fried artichokes and caprese as appetizers. All were excellent, and the fried artichokes were crispy...More

Hard to find little restaurant in the Jewish quarter. Based on the reviews, we were looking forward to trying this place. Perhaps it was because we were there on Sunday afternoon but we were disappointed. Excellent fried artichokes, the rest of the food, not so...More

Had dinner here on the recommendation of a roman guide. It is situated off the beaten track in the Jewish Ghetto on a typical piazza. The place was almost full of Italians and few tourists but we found a good table in the elegant room....More

We went to Piperno the first day because our hostess in Rome recommended us this restaurant. A bit hidden but amazing food! We tried many other pasta in many different places around, but we could not find anything similar to Piperno! We had to do...More

The food is uninspiring. The artichoke was deep fried but unseasoned and bland. The saltimbocca was fine but the sea bass was a large overpriced portion, served steamed with no garnish, sauce or embellishment. I'm sure it's an institution but I'd say it needs to...More

We visited Piperno on our first night in Rome and there could have not been a better way to start our trip. We found about it in an online guide and we can assure with no hesitation that the service and quality where the best...More

We visited on the recommendation of friends. Great traditional ambience with good service but food a little disappointing. The zucchini flowers and artichokes had been cooked in oil that had previously cooked fish (and so tasted fishy), everything was under seasoned, our desserts (3 of...More

In a picturesque quiet side street in Rome's Jewish quarter, Piperno is homey, elegant and unfailingly delicious. The service is impeccable as one can expect from waiters who have been running this floor since the time of Julius Caesar.

We reserved for lunch at this charming restaurant and spent a few hours before at the Museo Ebraico di Roma and Synogogue. It felt so special and welcoming. Service was excellent and the restaurant room had such a wonderful feel to it - a bit...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.
