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

Came at 12:30. There was no on e else. I was invited to chose my table. There a three rooms, two of them with ceiling frescoes. I chose the back one with the better preserved fresco. I was served my house wine immediately which was a good wine (€4). I was offered to have bread which I appreciated as I... 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

The service is charming and the interior is like something from another age. This place has a lot of charm, but it's not cheap and the average food doesn't really justify the prices.

Booked for partner's birthday - staff were amazing, brought delicious cheesecake with a candle in it! The deep fried artichokes, a local speciality, were out of this world, delicious baccala, pasta dishes and complimentary bruchette, and a great wine list. Not a tourist in sight - apart from us of course ;-)
