City Guide: Rome
One of the oldest and most popular restaurants in Rome's Jewish Ghetto.
The Jewish community of Rome dates back 2,000 years and has had a large influence on the city’s cuisine. Indeed the area of the Jewish Ghetto is still considered an excellent place for a good meal thanks to its numerous restaurants serving up historic Roman-Jewish recipes such as carciofi alla giudia (Jewish-style fried artichokes) and fiori di zucca (deep fried zucchini flowers). One of the most popular has to be Nonna Betta, which is situated right in the heart the historical neighborhood.
The elaborately decorated dining room showcases art depicting the history of the Jews in Rome and while you can still find Roman classics such as Carbonara and Amatriciana, you will find they are given a Kosher-twist with dried beef in place of guanciale (cured pork).
