  • "In its own juice", the Jewish ghetto could serve as a natural backdrop to a film that would take place during the 2nd World War. There is an atmosphere filled with memory and history. Cafes and restaurants kosher which are worth visiting.

  • Alongside the Tiber develops what remains of the Jewish ghetto. Unfortunately over the years has shrunk but there are still some very characteristic alleys where you can breathe the air of the ghetto. The synagogue in the first place, but also the typical restaurants and nice little shops. Surely you must cross in order to revive its ancient atmosphere.

  • Of what was the old Jewish ghetto remain very little, given the continuing demolitions to make way to the banks of the Tiber. Beautiful synagogue, one of the most important in Europe, and beautiful the Portico d'ottavia. Interesting walk along the streets where the stumbling blocks that resemble the many Jewish victims of madness xenophobic. The ghetto was also the scene of one of the largest raids took place during World War II. To visit.

  • Waiters are not jews and not italians here, and the atmosphere is more modern. But the same dishes as in more real jewish restaurants are cheaper here. Good place.
  • Cheaper than many of the other restaurants in the Jewish district. For lunch, food was fairly good and staff friendly.
  • Worst place ever, never ever visit it. Food is not fresh, badly cooked. Overpriced.
  • It was OK food & service
  • Exactly what you would expect. Typical Roma tourist orientated menu with so-so service and so-so prices. Good location and at least the menu has a breadth and depth that should enable you to and your guests to find something that appeals. Beware the house red wine - it's pretty rough!
