AOL Travel Editor’s Review

This diminutive restaurant is one of the best places to eat in Rome. It’s a true find—that is, if you can actually find it. Located in a darkened piazza between the former Jewish Ghetto and the Tiber River, the Sora Margherita's façade lacks proper signage—which makes it all the more special. The interior consists of a handful of Formica tables crammed together as Mamma Margherita or her long-time protégés cook up classic Roman and Jewish-Roman dishes—including homemade, hand-rolled pastas—from a visible walk-in-closet-sized kitchen. It's technically a "cultural association," which means you'll be asked to become a member. Fill out some cards (and maybe pay an association fee of one euro each) and you’re in.
