Sora Margherita

300 Piazza delle Cinque Scole
Rome , Italy

Just finding the entrance to Sora Margherita is part of the experience at this hole-in-the-wall trattoria in the old Jewish ghetto. Hidden behind a red braided curtain, the unmarked door leads to a small room with simple wooden chairs, white-clothed tables, and dozens of articles and snapshots lining the walls. The daily specials are handwritten on butcher’s paper, although the servers may simply make suggestions rather than offering the menu. The dishes combine traditional Roman recipes with Jewish influences and include such signatures as the fried artichokes and fettuccine a cacio e pepe (homemade pasta with parmesan and fresh pepper).
