And mine was at Ba Ghetto. In Rome for two weeks and every other food experience was at least "ok" except for Ba Ghetto. Except for 1 Rude slow service 2 Poor food it's not a bad restaurant. After all, the chairs did not collapse and the sparking water (tho overpriced) was good.

First I have to say the guy who "sold me" the restaurant in front of it was nice. But since I walked in the place, I found out a different approach. As I still tried to be comfortable at my sit, the waiter put a small basket of bread on my table, no asking first. Ok, I wasn't hungry so... More

The food was tolerable (we had lamb that was a bit on the burnt side of roast, and bacalao that was quite ok), but as another customer said: the service was not good. At the end of the meal we were more or less forgotten. And when we finally got to pay we were told explicilty that no service were... More

My favorite restaurant in the Jewish ghetto in Rome, the food is fresh and very testy. The service is friendly and fair prices, you will be in the heart of the jewish quarter. this place can be very busy.

Our family of 4 ate here on a Tuesday night and were surprised at how busy all the restaurants on Via Portico D'Ottavia in the Jewish Ghetto were. The menu looked good so we tried Ba Ghetto Meat instead of the Milky version down the street. Our pasta and fish dishes were both good but the kids both ordered schnitzel,... More

Food was OK but the service was shocking and made to feel like I was an inconvenience. Not a good experience.

When planning a brief get-away to Rome, we were thrilled to learn that there was a nice assortment of kosher restaurants, most of them clustered in the historic Jewish Ghetto. So, after a long and tiring first day of touring, we ventured down there for an early dinner. We reviewed menus of several places, before ultimately settling on BaGhetto Meat... More

Staying in Ghetto

Neighbourhood Profile
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 pulse of the neighbourhood, keeping company on the Via del Portico d’Ottavia. The Ghetto observes the traditional Jewish Shabbat: businesses close from Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
