Had a lovely lunch - excellent home made pasta dishes, good service, varied and well-priced wines. If a hot day - suggest you pop inside and look at the rear garden which will be cooler than streetside.

Had different dishes with artichokes... truly great and tasty. Good atmosphere on the square (feeling as a square but really just a wide street). Kosher food restaurant area...

We really enjoyed dinner at this restaurant at the Hotel Eden. The views of the Vatican and city of Rome were exceptional. The food was very good and the staff gave us all their attention and were very friendly. All in all a great night!

The second plate (eggplant) is a very small portion for someone that did not order a starter and the carbonara did not meet our expectation as did not contain too much bacon and cheese. However the starters vegetable balls and fried ozarella cheese were really...More

We stopped here tonight to just grab a glass of wine. Our waiter suggested a fried artichoke. Was it delicious! One of our favorite foods. The man sitting next to us was cleaning loads of artichokes and gave us some good tips for preparing them....More

Found this by browsing TripAdvisor. It's a good italian restaurant. Tried the fried artichokes and it was fantastic. Only thing that was very un-italian is that the meals were served very fast - not exactly slowfood.

We liked everything, the fried artichoke, the house wine, in 3/8 bottles so we could have both red and white, the friendly service, I specially loved the calves heart, cooked with artichokes, and maybe they should have five stars. Prices OK. Maybe because the weather...More

After a miserable experience at a restaurant a few meters up the street, I was hesitant to try another locale in this touristy area. What a surprise! We arrived 20 minutes before the stated closing time, but were quickly seated with a smile. Food arrived...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
