We went here our first day in Rome, on the recommendation of various guide books. It was probably the most disappointing meal of our 2 week Europe trip. The food just wasn't special at all. The fried artichoke seemed overcooked to slightly burnt and dry,...More

Had a great time at Nonna Betta. Excellent wine, proper artichoke but the tripe dish is to die for. Service attentive and very friendly, but professional. I can’t believe all the stupid reviews about the presentation and the simplicity of the dishes... That’s exactly what...More

Passed by this restaurant and decided to give it a try. Just amazing - every dish we ordered was perfect. The pasta was fresh and flavorful, artichokes and zucchini were incredible and prepared in a way I never tried before. Even the falafel was delicious....More

I love artichokes, so when our tour guide told me about the fried artichokes at Nonna Betta I knew I had to try them. I ordered the artichoke and my husband ordered the appetizer plate with the fried artichoke, along with some other bites. Everything...More

We also went to this restaurant because someone online raved about the food there. In my opinion, however, there are better restaurants to go to in the area to sample the Ghetto's famed food. While the food was ordinary particularly regarding presentation, the front-of-house staff...More

We went there because it was recommended by some critics. Not exaggerating, the food was super basic, like frozen food and the service was super bad. They charged us for stuff we didn’t take and when we asked what it was they yelled at us......More

Located in the Jewish quarter Nonna Betta serves traditional Roman Jewish, though not kosher food. Pleasant surroundings. Friendly waiter.

If you need to eat in the Jewish Ghetto area, Nonna Betta is a good place to try. But it isn't worth a journey if you don't have to be in the neighborhood. For those who may wish to eat at a Kosher restaurant, note...More

Perhaps this was once a good place, but it has become a clip joint. A better meal can be had for half the price at most any random Roman tourist restaurant. And it is not bad because it it Kosher. Even the lamb with roasted...More

The mini-neigbourhood Ghetto holds tight to its
reputation as a stand-alone area thanks to its nearly
300-year history as the home to Rome’s Jewish
community. Times changed in the 20th century, but the
tiny area still retains its mix of tradition,
community, and history. Ancient and medieval
architectural design frames apartments, bakeries,
shops, and restaurants. Friends and families are the

Nonna Betta - kosher style cuisine is an authentic Roman Jewish restaurant. Traditional dishes handed down by grandmother Betta are prepared express, using only seasonal ingredients. Among these, our famous fried platters, well loved for their feather-light texture. Aside from the variety with which they rotate, the oil employed for frying is used exclusively for cooking fresh vegetables and cod fillets only, that is never crustaceans or mollusks (that are prohibited) nor frozen products, which are totally missing from our pantry. The restaurant is cozy and pleasant. On the walls are large reproductions of art depicting vignettes of daily life in the Rome Jewish Ghetto before the late 1800s demolitions. In this place, immersed in a relaxed and welcoming setting, you can relive the stories of the Ghetto, and perhaps find answers to questions you "never dared to ask" regarding the Jewish culture, religion or the 2000 year-old presence of Jews in Rome.
