Its a busy restaurant , if you can get a smile from a waiter you'll be lucky , or one who isn't impatient even luckier , but you don't come to Giggetto for that! You might not even come for the food , by some standards the lamb is greasy, and the artichoke bah, but its Roman, its traditional and... More

after much research we choose this for one of our precious three rome dinners and we were not disappointed. It was odd that the restaurant doesn't open for dinner until 7:30pm. The neighborhood is not that active so no reason to arrive early. The building is historic as is the street. We enjoyed the famous Fried artichoke but enjoyed the... More

We went "Da Giggetto" for lunch, quite a late one (after 2.30p.m.). The food was absolutely delicious (fritto misto, abbachio arrosto, bistecca). Everything arrived quickly, and the new wine Novello di Toscana was great. Recommended.

I have eaten here twice once six years ago for lunch and more recently for a dinner with some friends from Ostia ( Ostia is the the Italian name for the wafer given as the body of Christ I found out) We ate in the outdoor courtyard not in front of the restaurant and though we passed many tables of...

In a lovely street of the Jewish neighbourhood, what feels like an old classic with many rooms, lots of Italian families around and very good food. Not expensive and a lovely meal with lots of Roman must haves. Service was good.

Like other reviewers, I have been going to this restaurant for years, and my husband since his childhood in the 1970s. What was great about the place was that although there was always some element of organized chaos, the service was friendly and the food great. It had the feel of still being family run although in more recent years... More

I googled to find a kosher restaurant and the Giggetto came up - propably because it is located right in the middle of the Rome ghetto. The restaurant is very big with a number of various rooms to choose from. Initially we were shown a table on the street which we declined and moved to a more cosy outside area... More

Our tour guide recommended this place It is in a cozy spot and eating outdoors was nice. The artichoke appetizer was a different experience but not all that tasty. The eggplant Parmesan and cannoli were very good. It took a long time to get served then after waiting for the bill for over 15 minutes we noticed the couple next... More

It is my third or fourth time of mine to come here. 12 years ago it was a real gastronomic heaven, artichoke and cannelloni was very good even two years ago. But now... Cannelloni was burnt too much, I ordered lingua, I received trippa. I ordered Falanghina as a white wine as before. Waiters answer was : I bring Frescati.... More

My wife and I picked this from the "Top 10 Rome" book. Were they wrong. Service was cold, rude, and indifferent. The waiter never made eye contact and had a scowl on his face. When we were finished with our overly expensive meal we had to wait twenty minutes to get our check. This was our last night to eat... More
