A friend suggested Nonna Betta and we are glad he did. The space is cozy and colorful, warm and family-friendly. The servers were happy to humor our limited Italian, answering questions about some of the more unusual menu selections. Best Carciofi Romano of our week...More

I am surprised at all of the negative reviews! My husband and I stopped at this place for lunch (we had a reservation, which I recommend). We were seated in the bottom area, where I think most of the locals were sitting. It's very cozy...More

We were excited for this restaurant. I really wanted to try authentic Roman Jewish food. It is an important part of the city's history. On top of this, I am Jewish and make it a point to see Jewish history in places we visit if...More

This was a recommendation made to us, the restaurant and employees are great in service, the food was good, but it the menu was different from what we saw in the home page and the options were not great to us.

It claims to be kosher style but, to us, that would mean not serving both milk and meat. While I"m not sure any of the dishes contained both, they offered both. The food was fine but nothing special.

Pulled in by the gimmick of a placard showing Anthony Bourdain ate here. Should have known that a good restaurant does not advertise this way to get people to enjoy their establishment. Not sure why this restaurant got so crowded after we arrived, other than...More

I rarely walk out after being seated, but I did today. The restaurant was not that crowded but we were seated in the basement. The only other people there had a screaming kid and the room smelled like cleaning solvent. If we couldn't be seated,...More

The Via della Portica d‘Ottavia, one street away from the Grand Synagogue of Rome (grand it is - fabulous inside and outside), is full of restaurants purporting to be Jewish cuisine (Ebraico / Giudia). Only one is truly Kosher (BellaCarne Kosher Grill). Nonna Betta claims...More
