It’s no doubt, one of Rome’s best qualities is its food. Now, if you’re looking for a good kosher meal, your options are plentiful. But let me break down some of the best kosher restaurants in Rome.
Obviously your first stop when looking for kosher restaurants will be the Jewish Ghetto. While most restaurants on Via del Portico d’Ottavia will satisfy your hunger, you can’t go wrong with Nonna Betta. Which is why it’s one of our top picks for eating in the Ghetto.
Make sure you try some Jewish artichokes in spring when they are in season!
Il Giardino Romano
If you’re looking for a nice courtyard to dine in, Il Giardino Romano is your choice for a classic, down home meal in a cozy setting. Don’t miss out on their selection of pastas, while of course feasting on another Jewish-style artichoke. just look at that plate of pasta! #Drool
Fonzie – The Burger’s House
So it may not be strictly Italian Jewish cuisine, but it’s inevitable, if you’ve been traveling around Italy for more than, say, two weeks, you’ll likely start to be feining for a little taste of home. In comes Fonzie’s – you can find kosher burgers here, along with a friendly staff who will make you feel welcomed and provide you with the best recommendations as to which burger will satisfy your palette.
After a long day of sightseeing, a quick snack is a must. Stop into Kosher Cakes for delicious, traditional kosher pastries. You’ll find a nice variety of hot-out-of-the-oven goodies to take your pick from. My advice would be to get one of each (you can always save some for later). An added bonus – most of the time, you’ll be lucky enough to see the owner herself baking up a storm.
Cremeria Romana Gelato
After getting your fill of Carciofi alla Guidia, no Roman night is complete without a stop at a local gelateria. Cremeria Romana has your favorite classic flavors, along with some unique blends mixed in there. My favorite is the fig!
