Piperno is an institution in Rome situated in the Jewish Ghetto within a lovely little piazza, in Via Monte de Cenci. This restaurant is the sacred temple of traditional roman cuisine.
Their main speciality are the fried artichokes or “carciofi alla giudia”, but the rest of the menu is more than delicious as well. You will find everything both meat, fresh fish, vegetables and delicious pasta (try the ‘spaghetti alle vongole’) as well as deserts.
We recommend you book a table outside because the place is very romantic and architecturally speaking you will be delighted by the location. If we can suggest the ideal timing, this would be a Tuesday or Wednesday at lunch.
The restaurant is closed on Mondays and on Sunday evenings, the rest of the week their opened both for lunch and for dinner. The restaurant is perfect for both a romantic dinner as well as a business lunch.
The place is very classic, as you will notice from the silver cutlery on the tables and the atmosphere is elegant and traditional. Piperno is a bit pricey but it really is a must if you want to taste the real flavors of Roman cooking.
