The restaurant is absolutely recommended for dinner or lunch or may be a bottle of wine. It is a nice place and not to be missed to experience to have a meal at the old Jewish ghetto area in Rome. The place is very casual...for dining and enjoys the open air dining in the street particularly during warm weather. They have plenty of tables too inside. There are plenty of place to sit and you'll be welcome by a friendly staff at the restaurant. Most of them are very friendly and delighted to serve. I had dinner their tonight, I've ordered fish with potatoes and pasta with artichoke and meat and a desert. The food is absolutely tasty and yummy. The restaurant mainly serves Jewish Roman food on the menu. Wines and non-alcoholic drinks available on the menu too. Easy to find the restaurant in the city of Rome as it is located few meters walk from Synagogue. The food prices on the menu are not too expensive and the quality of food is quite good.More
We'd received a recommendation to try this restaurant and have no regrets. We had great food, wine and service in the outdoor area out on the streets of the old Jewish ghetto in Rome while listening to musicians playing Jewish music, making for a unique...and wonderful atmosphere during our meal.
Well worth a visit, and definitely worth trying to fried artichokes.More
First of all I can’t believe Nonna Betta only has a 3.5 rating, that’s blasphemous. Anyway. We didn’t stumble upon Nonna Betta, we came as part of a foodie tour. But, we came back twice. The bread is exceptional, you must have good bread. And...their Romana dishes are great. But the reason you come to Nonna Betta is the fried artichokes. During the occupation and annexation of Rome, Jews didn’t have access to the usual food sources and artichokes being rather cumbersome and undesirable were easier to get - they fried them once to cook the heart and again to crisp the petals. 75 years later we get to enjoy them with a pinch of salt and happy smiles, always respecting where this treat came from.

Nonna Betta is in the Jewish ghetto portion of Rome. It's quiet streets are a stark contrast to other areas where traffic is so busy. It is an interesting section to wander through with it's unique architecture. and stumbling stones in front of the doors...of homes and businesses whose residents were arrested during the Holocaust. Nonna Betta's was recommendedtous by a tour guide and she wasn't wrong. We enjoyed a relaxing meal of red wine and dishes made from recipes that had been handed down from Nonna Betta. Itwas a quiet afternoon and service was excellant. We like to visit restaurants that are a bit different from the estqblished norm Nonna Bettas fits this description.More
We opted to stroll thru this very interesting enclave in Rome. We got the recommendation from our tour guide, a true Roman that enjoyed Anthony Bourdain as much as we did. The cuisine is Jewish inspired Mediterranean. The wine selection is very good, includes both...Italian and French. We thoroughly enjoyed each well prepared dish, especially the roasted artichoke and the sweet bread.
The staff is exceptionally accommodating, we arrived just as they were closing for a break, but kindly offered us early dinner seating. We then arrived very tired too early and were allowed to rest and enjoy the wall murals and the warm , friendly environment. Thanks for your kindness.More
We had an average lunch consisting of two pasta dishes, meat balls and a portion of spinach. The food was ok, not terrible, but also not memorable. However when the bill came we had been charged €3 for bread which we had not been served...nor asked for. We mentioned it to one of the waiters explaining that we had not asked for bread and hadn’t even been given any bread so could he take it off the bill. He refused saying even if we hadn’t been served bread it was a COVER charge for the table that we had to pay ! So basically you rent the table !! After a brief heated exchange of words he finally agreed to knock €2 off the €52 bill. We were very angry our lunch had been spoiled by such a short sighted and horrible attitude. Absolutely would never ever return. It’s places and attitudes like this that give Rome such a bad name for service. What a ridiculous attitude.More
Four of us had dinner early one evening. We all had the deep fried artichokes as an appetizer which were superb. A bottle of red wine was excellent.
As to the other dishes, the pasta dishes were HORRIBLE AND INEDIBLE. We couldn't eat them and...left them behind. I was shocked as I had eaten many dishes of pasta during my month in Rome and all were very good.
The guys liked their sea bass although it was only average The mixed desserts were just okay. Waiters were friendly.
If I were to return, I would get the specialty - 2-3 artichokes and a nice salad. Stay away from other food!More
We did not have reservations on NYE, and Nonna Betta welcomed us with open arms. Our server was delightful to our nine-year-old daughter. He thoughtfully poured her Sprite into a wine glass just so she could make a toast. The roast lamb was a good...as my Serbian great-grandmother's. Highly recommend.More
