Ba' Ghetto Review
This hot spot is a welcome addition to the main promenade in the Jewish ghetto. The decor is smart in its black-and-white-with-turquoise-touches look, and outdoor seating in warmer months is a great option in this historic stretch of the district. The kitchen is kosher (many places featuring Roman Jewish fare are not), serves meat dishes, and not only do they feature an assortment of Roman Jewish delights, they also offer a variety of Mediterranean-middle eastern Jewish fare. Enjoy starters like phyllo "cigars" stuffed with ground meat and spices, or the brik—egg and tomato wrapped in phyllo triangles and briefly fried. There's a nice assortment of pasta dishes, but we advise going for main plates like the assortment of couscous dishes (the spicy seafood is delicious), or baccalà with raisins and pinenuts. Interesting sides like chicory with bottarga (cured mullet roe) round out the meal. Note the strictly adhered-to hours: Saturday night, the restaurant posts post-Sabbath/sundown opening times to the minute on a blackboard out front. Check out their latest addition to the ghetto's main drag, with the unfortunate name of Ba'Ghetto Milky (Via del Portico d'Ottavia 2/a)—it's the kosher dairy version of the original.
