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

We would have passed by the restaurant if we had approached it from the front entrance. We came upon a pretty courtyard shaded by umbrellas and had some delightful local grilled fish accompanied by a chilled bottle of White from the Lazio area and we were in heaven. Looking with wonder at ancient columns embedded in weathered masonry and we... More

We were invited recently by a native Roman who has frequented this place over many years. It is nestled in among some ancient ruins, next to a pretty little church and has outdoor seating at the front and a larger more secluded area to the rear. The artichokes and fillets of fish were ordered up as starters. Both dishes were... More

This was my 2nd trip to this restaurant and I would recommend eating outside (in front of the restaurant, in back 2nd choice). Appetizer - the rice balls truly are better than the fried artichokes but try both as the quarter is know for the artichokes. I ordered only a pasta (Bucatini all amatriciana) for my meal and it was... More

You can't miss the jewish quarter in Rome on your visit. Walking around this historical area plus seeing Romes oldest synagogue is a must. There is a Main Street with all the restaurants and they are all basically the same, very touristy and all offer the famous fried Jerusalem artichokes. Go here for the artichokes but don't expect much from... More

I recommend Giggetto al Portico d'Ottavia. I’ve been there several times, with friends, family and one time with my love. It was always great! Great food and service in a relaxed atmosphere, especially in the beautiful little garden. Not to be missed.

Great food and service in a relaxed atmosphere. Polite attentive service, this resturant has a full kitchen team. Busy at peak times, but traditional service takes additional time. The Roman specialities are good but remember seasonality when looking at choosing classic dishes, this is not fast food- take your time, relax and enjoy in the Roman manner.
