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...

Last night was to be our second dinner at this restaurant - the food was really good the previous time. This time around, we waited about 10 minutes for the waiter and ordered water to start off with. Then - nothing happened for a long time, while the waiter served another table. Eventually, he returned and wanted to take our... More

I went here several times while in Rome and it's one of my favorites! The neighbourhood is really charming and this restaurant fits in just right. We almost tried everything on the menu. Different kind of starters, pasta, pizza, risotto, fish- and meat dishes and their dolce. We both loved it al! The service was very friendly. But I think... More

We were lead here by the good reviews and a recommendation for the area. We were not disappointed. The waiter did his best to explain everything to us and to make recommendations according to our wishes. When a shower suddenly came pouring down, they immediately came to save our dinner. Props for the great effort! :) Even though we had... More
