We booked Shabbat meals online at Baghetto and enjoyed very good food and company for both our Shabbat meals. Well worthwhile if you are staying in Rome over a weekend. We were served four courses which were generously sized. I particularly commend the lasagna (meat in the evening and artichoke in the morning). The service was good. The meals are... More

I have been to Rome many times and never tried the traditional Roman Jewish fried artichoke. Well... At Ba Ghetto it was delicious!! The main course Cod fish that followed was not so good but the service was friendly and the wine delicious.

I am not sure why Fodor's recommended this restaurant. What a disappointment. There are far better places to enjoy lunch in Rome. The waiter was the least friendly one we have encountered. He was miffed that I only ordered an appetizer of 3 dips for lunch. When the dips of baba ganoush and hummus arrived, he didn't serve anything to... More

We took guests from abroad out to dinner. We booked for 9.15pm when the restaurant opened. We were given a table for 5 inside at the back which was a little tight. We were not offered a table outside, which is a pity, because it was a beautiful Roman evening. Perhaps because the tables outside were prepared only after we... More

Located in the Jewish Ghetto along with a number of other restaurants this is a good option. Staff friendly food nice and wine good. Whilst there are plenty of Jewish options on the menu the pizza is also very good

They rush you in and out and you sit shoulder to shoulder with other tourists They are not looking for repeat customers and the tip is included in the bill so there is no need to provide good service. Our mushroom pizza was tasty but barely had mushrooms on it. Clean and fresh, mid priced. When I inuired about the... More

Had an edible lunch made into a pretty poor lunch by a pretty surly, bordering on rude, waitress. She couldn't tell us how big the insalata fritto was and when we the cheek to ask her to bring some salt we got the eye roll then, when she brought it, she dropped it on the table as she walked past....

Rude staff, exceptionally poor service, mediocre food, outrageous bill. After enjoying so many wonderful meals over the past month in Italy I could not believe how bad my experience at this restaurant was. I am sure that there are many great restaurants in this part of Rome, however avoid this one please.

We wanted to eat in the Ghetto because we wanted to the try the artichokes "alla Giudia", artichokes being in season primarily in spring. We went in without reservations and had no problem ordering. The waitstaff could be more attentive. I had the feeling that the waitress was more interested in talking to the other staff than checking on tables.... More

We went to the Jewish Ghetto on a Saturday to dine at Ba'Ghetto without reservations. Since it was shabbat, the 2 restaurants or any Jewish restaurant will open after sundown, almost at 8 p.m. We chose the Ba'ghetto that served meat and non dairy foods ( the other one served dairy). They took us in but we were unlucky to... More

Neighbourhood Profile
The mini-neigbourhood 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 neighbourhood, keeping company on the Via del Portico d’Ottavia. The Ghetto observes the traditional Jewish Shabbat: businesses close from Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
