Great lunch stop

Went in for lunch while walking around Rome. Place was fairly busy with locals. Prices are really good and food was great. I had the sausage pizza and the wife had Ravioli in tomato sauce. Both were really nice but very filling. They had a nice display of cakes & desserts. But we couldn't eat... read more

We had pizza here after a tour of the ruins and it was wonderful!! The best pizza we've had in Rome so far and for a very decent price. Do recommend!

I'm a Roman, so I love the traditional cuisine of my City and boy do they make them right here. I just love coming back to this place. If you're visiting Rome and touring the historical Center, don't get swindled by places immediately by the most known landmarks, just walk a few paces up to the original Ghetto (this is... More

We visited this street in the Rome Ghetto yesterday after a tour of the synagogue. We decided we'd return to try one of the many restaurants here. Il Portico is one of three ristorante that sit side by side. We chose it because it advertised a lunch special that my wife and I believed we could share. We ordered a... More

We spent a week in a rented apartment just around the corner from this popular neighborhood place. The first day we ended up here solely for proximity and hunger; came back again for the lively location (such as parents greeting their kids as they're being dismissed from the Jewish school across the street) and very good, simple food. Highlights were... More

All is said in the title, we have ordered two salads which were very simple and then fried zucchini flowers, mozzarella and cod that were very average as well. Waiter was almost ignoring us and far from being polite. We were told there are many good restaurants in the jewish ghetto so I would definitely recommend not to go to... More

Don't miss in the Jewish ghetto. Large variety of pizzas. I had the Napoli one that was excellent. My wife had the ravioli and said it was the best ravioli she has ever had. The locals eat here. It's cheap and a great local experience. Don't miss.

This place is great. Last time we were in Rome, 3 yrs ago, we had a memorable meal that blew us away so on our recent visit it was our first stop. Once again we had a fantastic time. A must try is the fried artichoke, a specialty in the Jewish Ghetto. It's crispy, salty and delicious. My personal favorite... More

Very good variety, big portions, delicious servings, authentic Roman dishes, best prices around (possibly in the whole touristic area). What more could you expect? Try "pacceri alle cozze e pecorino" if available. They cook it with fresh home made pasta. House wine is also good. Great taste, great value.

I had a lunch this week with my husband. We loved our meal. Try a fettucini alle porcini. We will come again...
