Our last night in Rome the hotel recommended this restaurant for our "grande finale" meal. We were looking to have special meal featuring local seafood specialties. What we found was an excellent meal prepared table side with an artistic flare by a very professional waiter. We chose the John Dory fish with a warm seafood salad as an appetizer and... More

This restaurant was recommended by the concierge at the St. Regis Grand Hotel and it was exactly what we were looking for. Sitting outside next to a fairly busy street, we have been asked to come inside and check the fresh fish. We've chosen Scampi and Sole and we did not regret our choice. They served the grilled Scampi with... More

Stumbled upon this restaurant near our hotel. It was a bit pricier and dressier than we had planned for, but worth the "stumble" We had the sea bass baked in salt and it was melt in your mouth good! As other reviewers have said, you have to be careful ordering. Many of the dishes are for 2. We had three... More

Our first evening in Rome and our hotel Concierge gave us only one restaurant recommendation, best in Rome. With four teenagers, the display of dead fish upon entering this small restaurant off the beaten path, was not the best first impression. Our waiter was very eager and helpful but almost too much pressure. What they don't tell you is that... More

We only came here because we were staying next door. I'm glad we did. The mixed hot and cold seafood entree was divine. Just get two or three of those. My partner thought the marinated octopus was the best ever. The calamari in tomato and cheese does not sound very nice but was one of the best calamari dishes I... More

Tis small out of the way restaurant is really a fish market that prepares it fresh seafood in the "Roman Style". The chef is a wizard. Four of us shared a large red snapper and it was absolutely superb. Baked in the oven in a LARGE round pan it was the best fish I have ever eaten! I wish I... More
