We diidn't actually eat here because we left due to the attitude of the guy behind the counter who also served us - Franco perhaps? We were ignored when we walked into the empty restaurant, then told not to sit at the only set table...More

Stopped by here and had pizza slices and salad. The white wine on tap is very drinkable and at €1.50 a glass you can't go wrong. Service with a smile. Recommended.

Our tour guide suggested this place, but we found it to be "average". The decor is nothing special and the past we had was just "ok". With so many other places within Rome to eat, I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here.

Saw all the school kids heading in for their afternoon slices...Kids know pizza! It was delicious and an amazing assortment, paid for by weight. A great lunch stop!

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
