Their fried artichoke is the stuff dreams are made of! So delicious and only 5 Euro! DONOT split one. You'll want it all for yourself and they're smushed, so they'll arrive much smaller than you might anticipate. I could've ordered two of these as my...More

We arrived in the Jewish Ghetto around 4 PM to walk around and take in some of the cuisine, which we previously read was fantastic. We stumbled upon Nonna Betta, which beckoned us in with a sign advertising a review by Anthony Bourdain. Apparently the...More

Food here is amazing and that's what you visit restaurants for.. the guys serving the food do their best but it's a popular busy place so are run off their feet! Try the artichoke baked with béchamel sauce - amazing!

The mini-neigbourhood Ghetto holds tight to its
reputation as a stand-alone area thanks to its nearly
300-year history as the home to Rome’s Jewish
community. Times changed in the 20th century, but the
tiny area still retains its mix of tradition,
community, and history. Ancient and medieval
architectural design frames apartments, bakeries,
shops, and restaurants. Friends and families are the

Nonna Betta - kosher style cuisine is an authentic Roman Jewish restaurant. Traditional dishes handed down by grandmother Betta are prepared express, using only seasonal ingredients. Among these, our famous fried platters, well loved for their feather-light texture. Aside from the variety with which they rotate, the oil employed for frying is used exclusively for cooking fresh vegetables and cod fillets only, that is never crustaceans or mollusks (that are prohibited) nor frozen products, which are totally missing from our pantry. The restaurant is cozy and pleasant. On the walls are large reproductions of art depicting vignettes of daily life in the Rome Jewish Ghetto before the late 1800s demolitions. In this place, immersed in a relaxed and welcoming setting, you can relive the stories of the Ghetto, and perhaps find answers to questions you "never dared to ask" regarding the Jewish culture, religion or the 2000 year-old presence of Jews in Rome.
