This place does it right. I was afraid to get oysters as the night before I had some sub-par ones, but the waiter assured me they were good. Top notch I would have eaten a hundred. Food was great, service great and atmosphere was not to be compared to other establishments here. I live in Rome a decade and this... More

I really enjoyed my dinner at Assunta Madre. I went there for business reason but I got the chance to try different dishes. All of them incredibly good and tasty. The fish raw and cooked is extremely fresh and well cook. They have some amazing combinations such as Trofie pasta with lemon and sea bass..wow! The service staff is attentive... More

We went to this restaurant two nights ago as it was referred to us by our concierge at the hotel. We would not return and clearly not recommend it to anyone. The only good thing about the place is that it is well decorated inside and they have a nice terrasse. However, we tried a number of both raw and... More

We were some Norwegian friends who wanted to have a solid fish dinner in Rome. We decided to visit this place with a good reputation. Oh what a mistake! If serving fresh raw fish gives you such a reputation then the whole of Norway would have Michelin stars! We expected some excellent cooking as well but obviously they don't agree.... More

We were a parti of 6 having finner in this restaurant, and I have never ever experienced anything so bad in terms of overpriced fond and wine. The price of seefood and fish is generally specified per 100 grammes. We got no information regarding the normal size of servings, so we assumed that it would be around 100 grammes. We... More

Great food, wonderful seafood, good experience, ambiance, service. All good. Enjoyed the seabass. My wife picked the John Dory sauted in olive oil and tomatoes. Also tried the gnochi. Yum. Certainly, be careful when ordering seafood as its priced by the kg so ask "how much" as we did. Clearly by the crowd , its popular with the young and... More

I and my husband went to this restaurant, while our vacation in Rome. Whatever people say about expensive is not true, you have a great dinner and service for a reasonable price, while we paid more for a bad meal in another restaurant, when they tried to make us spend money for nothing good. We came to the restaurant about... More

Our family of four (boys 9 and 12) when to Assunta Madre at the recommendation of the Concierge at the Gran Melia. Top line - great seafood meal and great atmosphere - clearly a very popular place - but expensive. Place has a cool vibe - lots of polished wood, big tables, good lighting. Seafood on display at the front.... More

Yes, this place is very IN, the interior nice... But the food... Okay, the selection of raw seafood was very fresh and tasty - but the rest OMG, a disaster. The fried fish was totally over fried, the poor Tuna dead, dry, terrible. The pasta was okay, but definitely of high standard. We took a selection of desserts - of... More

Good food quality but really expensive for the amount they serve. Being spanish i can say this restaurant is just a bad copy of what a good see food restaurant could be. In Madrid you can find much better quality and cheaper resturants. Here they show off their puctures of famous actors and live out of it.
