The staff was pleasant and efficient - service was quick (probably why it is called Fast Kosher). We had the Shawarma in pita bread. The sandwiches were delicious with lots of tasty ingredient choices and a great blend of Tahini and hot sauce to top it off.

We stopped for a light lunch in YESH SHENI to take to go as a wee pic nic. The falafel + hummus was very tasty. I chose 2 salads to go with it as it was only a few euros more. Hubbie had shawarma which he loved. This came with a choice of 3 salads. We asked for some spicy... More

Food was OK but not great. The service could be improved. The menu looks bigger than it is. I am not sure hoow fresh the vegetables were but I had no bad reactions so I guess it was ok in that regard.

We just arrived in Rome and went to this little kosher restaurant. They serve middle eastern type cuisine and it's pretty good at a decent price. The servers are nice and will let you know what they have that is glatt. The eating area is a bit cramped but if you're hungry and need a quick kosher bite before heading... More

For light meals and snacks in the Jewish Quarter, this is the place to visit. Quick service, many options. Only a few tables. Has take away options. Has excellent fried artichokes, a specialty of the Jewish Quarter.

Good fast food. Sharma pitas are excellent. So is their spaghetti. They really ought to let paying customers use the bathroom. And, they would not take a credit card, nor did they have change for a child who just wanted to buy a can of Coke.

We took 2 typical jewish dishes and beer. Cooked very well. Staff polite and its situated in the heart of the Jewish ghetto. We will come back to try another typical dish!! Highly recommended! !

If you are familiar with falafel, don't go there. My stomach still hurts and the size of the portion don't even justify the low quality. I've given up the idea of finding a good falafel in Rome.

Served as a good restaurant while walking through the jewish ghetto and was also close to the synagogue. Tried falafel piatto and pasta carbonara.Both were good and not so highly priced. A good experience.

Staying in Ghetto

Neighbourhood Profile
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 pulse of the neighbourhood, keeping company on the Via del Portico d’Ottavia. The Ghetto observes the traditional Jewish Shabbat: businesses close from Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
