Nonna Betta- exploring the ghetto.

Jewish Italian cuisine- can you imagine the combination of two cultures more likely to produce  excellent food? To be recommended.


A (short) Roman holiday . . . lunch

Having satisfied our cultural appetites (an hour or so) …. it was time for lunch (an hour or two….)

We wanted to eat in the old Jewish quarter-

Il Giggetto is:

  1. famous
  2. therefore, probably too expensive- for us anyway, and
  3. fortunately closed.

BUT GOOD NEWS- they have a trattoria opposite which was FANTASTIC- we had artichokes with added artichokes and veal and good house wine— excellent!

So we’ll go back and maybe try the original one for a special occasion . . . .
