Since 1860, Piperno has been a fixture in the Jewish Ghetto of Rome. Located on the Piazza Cenci, it is in the heart of the Ghetto (and a little hard to find). Specializing in traditional Roman Jewish fare-think artichokes alla Giudia-Piperno also brings in the best of the season and changes the menu accordingly. Piperno is the quintessential Roman Jewish experience. Everything is kosher and it's closed in August.
