  • It is an old neighborhood that has developed around the Portico d'ottavia, behind the theater of Marcellus, it occupies an area still genuine where you can hear the ancient Roman dialect, this neighborhood in addition to housing the main temple which is well worth a visit, is home to many historic buildings (Palazzo Caetani among others) and also a sculptural jewel: the turtle fountain which is well worth a visit. It is pleasant to wander through the many alleys often animated by several cats that populate the area along with numerous artisan shops and restaurants Jewish cuisine of Lazio (COD, fried artichokes, etc)

  • 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!
