La Taverna degli Amici information
A smart trattoria in a delightful medieval setting, the Taverna sits on a pretty ivy-draped piazza on the edge of the Jewish Ghetto. It serves consistent classics like saltimbocca alla romana (‘leap in the mouth’ veal with sage), plus delicious seafood and homemade desserts. There’s also an excellent wine list.
