Fodor's Review

This hot spot on the main promenade in the Jewish Ghetto has been going strong for years, with pleasant indoor and outdoor seating. The kitchen is kosher (many places featuring Roman Jewish fare are not) and serves meat dishes (so no dairy); the menu features an assortment of Roman Jewish delights, as well as Mediterranean and Middle Eastern Jewish fare. Enjoy starters like phyllo "cigars" stuffed with ground meat and spices, or the mixed appetizer platter with hummus. Forego pasta for couscous (the one with spicy fish is delicious) or baccalĂ  with raisins and pinenuts. Down the street is Ba'Ghetto Milky (Via del Portico d'Ottavia 2/a), the kosher dairy version of the original.
