What people are saying

  • Maureen B. Fant (2014) calls this “The best place for the Roman Jewish classics, but not only. The fish is also excellent. Service is old-style and dignified, atmosphere upper bourgeois. It’s like time travel.”
  • Katie Parla (2013) says “Piperno is unfortunately past its prime and a bit overpriced, but it’s hard to beat the fritti (fried starters) and the outdoor seating in the summer is lovely.”
  • City Secrets Rome: The Essential Insider’s Guide (2011) says this “fabulous setting” helps to weave together the many layers of Rome with it’s “wonderful Jewish-Italian cuisine.”
  • The Food Lover’s Guide to the Gourmet Secrets of Rome (2010) says that “tourists used to come to eat here when the Ghetto was still a ghetto, locked up at night,” and says that the lamb is reliably good. They advise booking a table in the main room with the wall paintings, otherwise you’ll find yourself seated in a small room full of English-speaking tourists. In warmer months, there are tables outside.
