This is a great place to have the traditional Roman specialties. Their most famous dish, fried artichokes, were as touted, perfectly prepared and quite special. I followed this up with a perfectly prepared seafood risotto, wonderfully balanced and seasoned. They do a unique dessert "Grandpa's Balls" which consists of fried dough stuffed with ricotta and chocolate. Sounds odd but is... More

Rome has the highest number and the most ancient of jewish community in Italy. They are the real descendents of ancient romans and Piperno is the first restaurant cooking a perfect traditional food of this ancient community. In no other place but Rome you can eat this traditional food. You must taste " I carciofi alla giudia" and "frittura mista",... More

We walked in on a Thursday evening without reservations. Even though the restaurant seemed fully booked, they made space for us with only a few minutes' wait. We had the artichoke starter, pasta first courses, and the oxtail stew and steak as our final courses. We definitely ordered too much with the meat as the final course, but everything was... More

Lovely restaurant in the Jewish Ghetto of Rome not far from the River. It was difficult to find since it's located in a very narrow alley that you can't see from the main street. We had the fried artichokes which were amazing and the zucchini flowers as starters. The spinach ravioli was delicious but the grandfather balls for dessert were... More

Below-average for a restaurant in Rome. The fabled fried artichokes were a huge disappointment.

Very good restaurant at the Jewish ghetto of Rome. The stuffed zucchini blossoms and the artichokes Judea are delicious. Excellent service. Surely a place to go if you visit Rome.

The "artichoke Judea" was outstanding. The gnocchi ridiculous. Service fantastic. The only trouble is it can be hard to find so give yourself time to do so, and to explore the Jewish Ghetto - a remarkable place.

Ate outside on a warm evening. The stuffed zucchini blossoms, fettuccini, and carchiofi Guida are excellent.

Bert Wolf was right this place is great- the atmosphere and food best we had in Rome. The famous fried artichokes were worth every penny. The gnocchi clouds from heaven.Unfortunetly, they were not making their specialty dessert that night because it was too hot. We will have to go back to have the "grandfathers balls" fried riccotta balls studded with... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
