We went here looking for artichokes and we're not disappointed. The "fried" artichoke was otherworldly. So delicious. As the entree, my friend and I ordered the turbot. We observed our waiter rushing into the kitchen carrying something that looked fresh and with a fin. Hmmm...More

I lived in Rome for 15 years, and left when I was 22. This explanes why I did not know this magnificent restaurant, only a few blocks away from my school, but out of range when I counted on my student allowance. Fortunately this time...More

For all the rave reviews, I would have expected much better. The location can hardly be described as nice, I would describe it as a mash up between alley and a motor court.. The interior is as tacky as any strip mall mom and pop...More

Staff were very snobby and rude, and the food is completely overpriced. It is in a very lovely area in the jewish quarter but did not meet our expectations. Do not recommend..

make a reservation so you can sit outside and have lunch at Piperno, a simple but elegant restaurant in a cool location with excellent food. Order lots of starters (artichoke is a must as is the salumi) and then a pasta. This and some good...More

Ristorante Piperno is in the Jewish Quarters of Rome tucked away in a side street - and it has been there for more than 150 years - up a small allay laced with cobbled streets - and on approach you see this most wonderful outside...More

We had a nice lunch sitting outside in a quiet, pretty location. The artichokes alla guida were tasty, but maybe a little too greasy. My husband's lamb dish was tough, chewy and pretty flavorless. My gnocchi was very good, but not what I ordered. I...More

If you gravitate toward classicism and tradition Piperno will satisfy immensely. This is a restaurant that has confidence in its style, its cuisine, its service. One gets the feeling that nothing has changed here for decades and in that there is great comfort. The preparations...More

This is a very traditional restaurant located near the synagogue (but not Kosher). It's really 100% of what I expect when it comes to 'traditional', the interior, the waiters and the food (no experiments). We had the mixed starters which were just fantastic (stuffed zucchini...More

We were looking forward to the “definitive” artichokes alla giudia which have long been a specialty of Piperno and which we had had many years ago here. They were unimpressive this time. So were our two main courses. We had the lamb sweatbreads with artichoke...More

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

Rome restaurants usually close one day a week, and that day is at their discretion. Piperno is closed on Mondays.

Hi Barb S. As other Trip Advisors have suggested, its a fair distance/walk from St. Peters and i would personally take a taxi. Re the language...we had absolutely no trouble in conversing with our waiter.
