    I've never had to visit this little neighborhood, full of history. Stroll on a warm summer evening, eateries full, tourists at every turn, and within you wonder how much history and how many things they saw those walls and cobblestones on the road ... Very impressive!!!

    The Jewish community of Rome is one of the oldest in Europe and here you can enjoy all the treats even the most drama of World War II. If you want you can also enjoy the chick Jewish cuisine in the restaurants of the area.

  • Dreadful service. Surly staff. The place was quiet and we asked if we could have drinks. When we sat they brought menus and we said we just wanted drinks. They became surly - removed the menu to replace with a drinks only menu which was thrown across the tables. They then took ages to take order and deliver order. Five drinks were delivered singly over a fifteen minute period despite continued requests. Spoiled a trip to Rome and the worst place visited in four days. The most unwelcome restaurant visited. AVOID AT ALL COSTS Additional comments - on leaving visited the toilets to discover a possible reason for the delay. The guy who appeared to be the manager was what can only be described as in a full on snogging session with the barmaid in the rear area of the bar No wonder we waited so long. So unprofessional in a public area and I hope they washed hands after their exhibitionism.
  • Great variety, friendly service, definitely 2-3€ for price. Food was good, would return!
  • The waiter didn’t bother to sweep the crumbs from our table, choosing to hide them with paper placemats instead. The bread was really dry. When ordering, the waiter was forcefully trying to push the more expensive wines and implied four of us could share two portions of the Roman-style artichokes, but we were still charged for four portions. I’ve had better pizza in British pubs and the beer was seriously overpriced at €8.
  • Tourist trap, stay away!!! Plates and glasses are dirty. The worst pizza I have tasted in my trip in Italy. Lasagna average minus.
  • Edible. That's it. Otherwise - absolutely unremarkable

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
