Fodor's Review

The place to go for Rome's extraordinary carciofi alla giudia, Piperno has been in business since 1860. The location, up a tiny hill in a piazza tucked away behind the palazzi of the Jewish Ghetto, lends the restaurant a rarefied air. In addition to the artichokes, try the exquisite prosciutto and buffalo mozzarella plate, the fiori di zucca ripieni e fritti (fried stuffed zucchini flowers), and filetti di baccalĂ  to start. The display of fresh, local fish is enticing enough to lure diners to try offerings from sea instead of land. Service is in the old-school style of dignified formality. This is a very popular destination for Sunday lunch.
