We visited this charming restaurant as a family of 5. Yes it is a little expensive however the food is refined and every course we tried was exceptional. My 13 year old daughter is still raving about her very simple basil and tomato pasta! The outdoor terrace captures a lovely breeze on a hot August day - it is located... More

First the service was excellent and very personable. I thought the food was ok. Fairly pricey. Most of the seating is outside which is very nice. You definitely must sit outside. The inside is very tight. The food I felt did not have the flavors you would expect from a fairly expensive menu 2 adults, 3 kids was about $300... More

This is in a quiet area in the Jewish Ghetto. It has a outside patio but we ate inside and enjoyed the décor. The waiter was very attentive .. The food delicious! Highly recommend. We went there twice....

Not far from Teatro Marcello and Capitoline Hill, in a nice quiet area away from the crowds. Stopped in on a chance and glad we did. Waiter was very personable and service was great. Three of us had the Vegetable Antipasto, Pasta with red prawns and the Fish fillet on green Roman broccoli sauce. The food was a bit higher... More

Finally a good, Italian restaurant. Everything is fresh, the waiters act properly- delizioso! Dishes are quite expensive but they are worth the price. I'd recommend to visit it for a late dinner and dress properly.

What a perfect Roman restaurant, so comfortable and welcoming, with a lovely interior decorated with original frescoes and a charmingly planted outdoor patio in front. The waiters are impeccably gracious and helpful, and the food, best of all, is outstanding. We have been there several times and each time have tried the antipasto buffet, a sumptuous offering of salads and... More

You don't find out about the 4e cover charge til you get the bill. Nor are the 7e cokes on the menu. I ordered veal kidneys (a delicacy) and got lamb kidneys with no explanation. Two other people in our group had their orders messed up. And for this they slip on the cover charge. I paid it but I... More

This is without a near competitor the finest restaurant we have been to in Rome (let's say best out of 14 evenings spread over a few years). The menu is imaginative, interesting and straight away it is obvious that this restaurant is lifting itself above the mass all across Rome who do variations on the same old themes. The food... More

Beautiful patio near the Theater of Marcellus, but you pay a dear price for being close to that attraction. It's almost the only game in that area of the town, and they take advantage of it. 3 Euros for a Coca Cola, total 9 Euros for three, 8 Euros cover charge for 2 people - and then you start ordering...

Staying in Ghetto

Neighborhood Profile
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 pulse of the neighborhood, keeping company on the Via del Portico d’Ottavia. The Ghetto observes the traditional Jewish Shabbat: businesses close from Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
