In the Jewish Ghetto of Rome, there is a special place called Sora Margherita. This little hole-in-the-wall, is a little hidden gem, and you could almost miss it if you are not looking for it, located in Piazza delle Cinque Scole.
The door of the restaurant is not a door at all but has red braiding and outside there is one little chair (in which an older man was resting on) and a paper sign with the specialità del giorno “specials of the day”. I had read that you need to arrive early in order to snag a table at lunch time so at 12:15pm, we were luckily the first ones there (it opens at 12:30). The man nodded his head recognizing that we were waiting and he muttered something in Italian which I took as “we are not ready yet.” Once they were ready (it was definitely after said opening time but hey we were in Italy, it’s expected), a woman came out to get us and we were able to see what was behind the braided curtain.
