A nice restaurant in a vibrant setting. While they have no vegetarian options on the menu, the staff were more than happy to come up with a vegetarian option (in this case tagliatelle with artichokes and garlic). The dessert was phenomenal.

This restaurant is one of our favorites, and a big reason to stop in Rome on any trip to Italy! The fried artichokes, fresh fish, homemade pasta bolognese, and grilled lamb chops are some of the menu highlights. The waiters are enthusiastic and informed, and...More

The waiters, were incredibly rude, ignoring me when I asked a question, but not serving others. The food was burnt and terrible quality, the bread was often stale, as well as not being busy, often meaning a poor local opinion

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
