My husband and I went here with a groupon, and boy, were we surprised. The restaurant is interestingly decorated, the service was great, and the food was delicious. All the fish dishes were very fresh, and the white mousse dessert was a hit. We will definitely return here again... with friends!

This restaurant is above all expectations. The service is high and the interior is very appeling. But the food!!! A true 10 pointer. We ordered the tasting menue for 40EUR/p includiing a bootle of wine. For the amount of food and the quality this is very price worthy. The food is of high standard. If you want to eat at... More

As others have mentioned, the decor is quite unusual, striking me as more Arabian than Italian. Most of the items on the menu are seafood and they were generally prepared well. Save room for the mousse dessert, both vanilla and chocolate are quite good.

We ate here on our second night in Italy. It was close to our hotel and we were in the mood for something besides the typical Italian dinner. We found it based on reviews on TA. We got there at 8pm and were the only people in the place. This is normal in Italy. Most people eat later. We did... More

The styling is very kitsch. So if you want discret and sober decoration, this is not the place to go. Gold and velvet all over. The quickest service I have experienced in Rome. Only problem that they gave us the wrong food. Besides of that, the marinated salmon for starter and the tuna for "secondi" was very well made.

We ate so many delicious meals in Tuscany and Rome on our recent vacation and this was the only restaurant that was a disappointment. Our party of 9 had a wide variety of dishes, from the potato crusted fish to the crab to the sea bream and much of the selfish had a fishy taste, and nothing was truly delicious.... More

First class regional seafood cuisine (Sardinian). Excellent service. Subtile flavors. Also excellent white wines from Sardegna.

We came in for lunch and took advantage of the 10 euro menu that included mineral water, a glass of wine, entree, plat, dessert and coffee. The food was great, the servers were friendly and we were the only non- Italians in for lunch. The decor looks like something out of Versailles palace and on the sound system they had... More
