  • We had read about the ghetto, but forgot about it until we stumbled across it. The old Jewish Ghetto is a good walk not just to hear Shalom but from an historic Roman perspective. See houses with char...  more »
  • Interesting area to visit while walking around exploring the Eternal City! Here you'll hear Shalom instead of Ciao! 
  • Every time I'm in Rome, I shall not want never to return to the Jewish Ghetto where I think the streets, alleys, buildings, monuments, everything, in short, still speaks of those who lived here and suffered untold sufferings caused by racial hatred. It is a place of Rome to visit not to forget, because the history of the Jewish community be a warning and teach us not to repeat the errors that many people should hear weigh conscience yet today. In the Ghetto I visited, in Casina dei Vallati, October 16, 1943 ". The pillaging. "with the help of Mr. Roberto Tarracina whom I thank publicly: I highly recommend not to miss this opportunity of knowledge and human and cultural enrichment.

  • 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!
