Eh, not much to see or eat here folks. More or less a typical Rome restaurant designed to cater to tourists. Why I keep eating at places like this I don't know. Actually I do know. You're tired, you've been walking around shopping for hours,...More

Found this little gem whilst walking around in Rome. The food was really tasty and the prices a lot cheaper than other places around the tourist attractions. If we ever get back to Rome will definitely revisit.

My husband and I had our dinner in this restaurant on a weekend away to Rome. The food was quite nice, but the service was extremely bad, hence the "poor" review. On arrival we requested a table for two, we were led to a table...More

Have you ever eaten an entirely fried artichoke? Do you want a new, favorite place to eat? Il Portico will leave you very satisfied without leaving a dent in your wallet. Centered in the old Jewish Ghetto, we had a wonderful dinner experience on our...More

The mini-neigbourhood Ghetto holds tight to its
reputation as a stand-alone area thanks to its nearly
300-year history as the home to Rome’s Jewish
community. Times changed in the 20th century, but the
tiny area still retains its mix of tradition,
community, and history. Ancient and medieval
architectural design frames apartments, bakeries,
shops, and restaurants. Friends and families are the
