Easter Sunday and Monday in Rome

AWG | Feb 16, 202003:14 PM    

I am arriving in Rome on Easter Sunday and spending 5 nights there. We are staying near the Jewish Ghetto. Prefer dinners close to our home base. For Tuesday through Thursday I have decided on Piperno, Sora Margherita, Emma, and Armando al Pantheon (probably for a lunch).
The tricky part is for Easter Sunday and Monday. I understand choices are limited for the holiday.

On Monday we are planning to tour the colosseo and have lunch at nearby il Bocconcino, So that leaves dinner Sunday and Monday as well as a lunch upon arrival. Most discussions on the board mentioning Easter are quite old so I would appreciate any suggestions. I noticed Katie Parla has a blog post updated in 2018 about Easter. Other than Nonna Betta, most of her selections are far further afield than I would like to venture, especially on our first Jet lagged day.

I came across Fortunato al Pantheon. They are open Easter Sunday dinner. Could work, although it appears a bit more “foofy” than I would prefer. A place to see and be seen?

Gigetto is an option that is open, with some older good reviews, but I noticed that their menu is in 7 languages, that rules it out for me :-)

Is Nonna Betta my best choice?
Or someplace else in the Jewish Ghetto to consider?
Taverna del Ghetto?

Not restricted to the Ghetto, but would prefer a relatively short walk to somewhere in the historic center on day one.

Al Pompiere is open Monday and on my list of possibilities. Has this place seen better days in the past, or still a decent choice for classic Roman fare?

Thanks in advance for any advice and suggestions.
