What do you expect from a jewish restaurant by the name "The fireman" ? They live on the old glory , but you can do better in the ghetto.

This was the third visit during the last 8 years. Perhaps the worse, though not bad compared to other Roman trattorias. Wonderful setting (old pallazo), polite staff, good starters, borderline greenpepper stake, pricey wine list

This restaurant in the Ghetto is great. The Barbara Sovrana wine was excellent, as was the Baccala Romana (fish in a light tomato sauce) . The service was also very nice. Reasonably priced. The artichokes were amazing.

If you are in the Jewish Ghetto stay away from the main street with the many restaurants (via Portico d'Ottavia) and try AL Pompiere which is off the beaten path and is a try hidden gem. Less crowded, fewer groups and more locals seem to eat here than the other Jewish Ghetto restaurants I have tried. The restaurant is lovely... More

I reported on this one before, and I liked it then. This visit I'd been out to another ristorante the night before, and had got ripped off and fed bleh food (hey, see "Grotte Del Teatro Di Pompeo"). So I wanted to play safe to a place I'd liked before. And they didn't let me down. Spaghette Carbonara, then sweetbreads... More

This is a wine and dine type of place,so it is not cheap. Food is nice,but not extraordinary, ambiance however is very pleasant (old age charm).

Apart from a junior member of staff, they were rude: bringing one course before we'd finished the first and not reacting when we questioned this; standing by our table until we'd finished etc Food was ok but not worth the price - apart from the panna cotta which was excellent. This was meant to be a lovely closing meal for... More

Lunch was mediocre and expensive. There was confusion about the daily special which then was supposed to be a pasta - turned out to be a red bean soup with undercooked pasta shards and little flavor. Fried artichokes were nothing like Pipernos -- tough and oily. The mixed seafood grill was greasy and very small selection for $30. One can... More

Al Pompiere is in a side street near Largo dei Torre Argentina and it is a great find. A warm welcome was given to us in the spacious and very nice dining room. The service at this restaurant is first class and the cuisine is delicious. I had the artichokes for the first time and was very impressed. My wife... More
