Children, parents and grandparents all well fed and happy

10 of us, all with different requirements: old fashioned staff who coped brilliantly with the chaos. Lovely food: the best carbonara and light tasty granita, a perfect family Sunday lunch

We had a late dinner here and were the last customers. We had to order all courses incl dessert at once. I had a linguine vongole, their special. However it wasn't that special. Vongole is one of my favourite dishes, so i have tried it at many places. This was very very oily. Partner has a steak.... You can't go... More

Wonderful, refined food. Beautiful service. Great wine list. Set in a stunning Roman square with some lovely interior dining rooms as well. A true restaurant. Sophisticated. You get what you pay for.

Just around the corner from Altare della Patria is this gem of a restaurant. The food is fantastic, the service out of this world. Been there twice now. Both times as good as each other. They make this desert that is their chefs speciality - fried pumpkin flowers with ice cream. Wow! This is not a cheap place, but well... More

After walking around Rome, what seemed to be the boss or manager, wouldn't even let my wife and I sit down to enjoy a probably very expensive bottle of water. Not very friendly having mind that there were several empty tables. A great contrast to Positano's openness which we had enjoyed until this morning.

When you have time and money, and want a certain level of standing, it could be a good choice, but I think it remains too expensive and if you look for the most demanding food quality on price ratio, you better look somewhere else.

Best pasta EVER. Just Youtube: vecchia roma amatricciana, and you'll have no choice but go. Tip: make a reservation a day before, because it's always full.

We come here each time we are in Rome because we enjoy the high quality food. This time was no exception. The carcioffo.alla giudea (deep fried artichoke), roasted pepper stuffed with ham, seafood salad, incredibly lightly battered courgette flowers etc. that we had as part of our selection from the antipasto buffet were all divine. Our fish dishes for mains... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Rome. In fact we have been there 3 times over the past 16 years. We tried another time 6 years ago only to discover they are closed on Wednesdays, the only day we were in Rome on that trip. The food is supurb, but not inexpensive. In our opinion it is well...

Staying in Ghetto

Neighborhood Profile
Ghetto
The mini-neigborhood Ghetto holds tight to its reputation as a stand-alone area thanks to its nearly 300-year history as the home to Rome’s Jewish community. Times changed in the 20th century, but the tiny area still retains its mix of tradition, community, and history. Ancient and medieval architectural design frames apartments, bakeries, shops, and restaurants. Friends and families are the pulse of the neighborhood, keeping company on the Via del Portico d’Ottavia. The Ghetto observes the traditional Jewish Shabbat: businesses close from Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
