    Teasingly displaying the freshest artichokes right in the shadow of the unbelievable Roman Portico d'Ottavia, Trattoria da Giggetto serves authentic Jewish Roman cuisine. The trattoria has been run by the same family for three generations and although overrun by tourists, it serves delicious dishes, including the most celebrated Carciofi alla giudia, i.e. fried artichokes (Jewish style). The food is extremely tasty and the ambiance is casual and friendly. Da Giggetto offers a similar menu to the nearby Piperno at materially lower prices, even if not as exquisite. My preference would be to try Piperno, but only if paying the higher price would not be an issue. Da Giggetto's outdoor seating, though, is a plus. Why not try both and decide for yourself?
