    Roman Jewish food is practically its own delicious cuisine. Try the pork-free carbonara with bresaola, carciofi alla giuda, and many more dishes typical of the city's historic Jewish population.

    Sometimes it takes an Israeli to do Rome proud. Just around the corner from Piazza XVI Ottobre, where thousands of Roman Jews were once rounded up and taken to concentration camps, sits the Taverna del Ghetto, run by Raffaele, a man from Israel, and his Roman wife. As he explained to me, Roman Jewish food had all but died out and twelve years ago they opened the first modern kosher place in the ghetto. The food is great. Roman with a twist...the fiori di zucca (fried zucchini flowers) have baccala bagnato inside instead of alici (cod instead of anchovies). The carciofi alla guidia is delish (fried artichoke). But the carbonara a nostra moda is worth going back for again and again. With cured beef instead of pancetta (pork) and mysteriously spicy hints of nutmeg..or was it cumin? (they weren't letting on), no cheese, and homemade pasta, it was a Roman classic with a really exotic, unique piatto.

    I've eaten here a few times and not only love the food, but the entire neighborhood itself. There are a number of great restaurants in this area, and the Taverna del Ghetto isn't any different. Their goulash is better than anything I ever had in Budapest, and the tonnarelli with artichokes was fantastic. The atmosphere is warm and homey with lots of brick, and especially comforting if you're wandering around in the winter and trying to escape the cold.

    It pains me to give a one-star review to this place. The food is really quite good - superior for Kosher food when compared to what's available in the US. However, after living in Rome for two years, this is the ONLY restaurant that has run my check wrong ... twice. It pales in comparison to Ba'Ghetto, across the street, and the dairy alternative of Nonna Betta - both on Portico d'Ottavia. Therefore... sorry, Taverna, but we won't be sending any more business your way.
