I recently had dinner at Giggetto and whilst it was a nice enough place, it is not spectacular. I was told it was very traditionally Roman, so I had high expectation, however I found the food very stodgy and super-salty (I couldn't finish my fish...More

Good restaurant in the old ghetto. Unfortunately it is not living up to its on standards. The ambiance remains the same but service is barely acceptable and the food does not match past offerings. The carciofi were out of season, the seafood poorly cooked and...More

Traditional Roman trattoria. Excellent food in general. I suggest you try the sweetbreads or the lamb. Any pasta is superb. Fried artichokes, cod and zucchini flowers are a must.

I ordered a chicken and anchovies dish and the chicken was still frozen in the inside. The pasta was also nothing special at all. It was quite expensive and really bad product quality: even the green salad was not good nor fresh (7€ for just...More

The food was good. The carciofi alla giudia as a starter was perfect as expected. My lamb chops were also as expected. The wine list was good and the service perfect.

Things just kept getting better and better. Bypassing the noisy tables out front on the street, and the indoor tables with dead air, I was led to a table at a hidden back terrace that offered intimacy and privacy. The wine menu and assistance with...More

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
