Fish here is fantastic, with a crunchy thick batter. Also had the fried zucchini, and the puntarelle salad which is definitely recommended. If you're after a change from pizza/pasta definitely worthwhile.

The fish here was amazing. I love fish and chips, but after eating here I have to say the baccala is better than any fish and chips I've had. The fish is crispier and a little saltier, with great taste. Salad was great as well.

We thought we'd join the locals in going to Filetti di Baccala one night in Rome. It's a tradtional trattoria, hidden around the corner in a quiet little piazza. It's old fashioned with basic decor - no problem there. The napkins are cut up pieces of paper tablecloth! We were greeted and seated at what appeared to be a table... More

Fried baccala and zucchini with a roman wine can make your evening in this simple 60's year restaurant. Do not aspect politness or a particular service, just a touch with the past....just one time in the life to pick up another souvenir of Rome.

This is a very unusual place with a limited menu where the star of the show is fried Baccala (Cod). besides the baccala which is sold by the piece they have other things including antipasto, fried zucchini, salad, etc. My wife and I had been here before, and were familiar with dinner options, we ordered two orders of fried zucchini...

This is an institution in Rome. The filetti di baccala (cod fish) are Surely greasy and not really a light meal, but absolutely a delicious snack and worth stopping by. Not a fancy decor but really typical of simple roman meals. This place is packed with locals and has be in the same spot of ages. Very popular among Romans.... More

My husband and I dropped by this little "hole in the wall" one night and got hooked on the baccala and puntarelle (greens with crushed anchovies). They serve up delicious fried cod mostly to Romans, but increasingly to tourists like us with Rick Steves Rome guidebook in hand. Go early (6:45 pm or so), dress very casually, pick up the... More

We found this great little place on the advice of a travel guide. We were so happy we did! It was full of Italians (I think we were the only Americans there when we ate here) and we had a great order of fried fish and the traditional Roman salad. This place is bustling and tiny. It does not have... More

Had heard of this place from Rick Steves. We made it a point to have an early dinner there on our trip to Rome in 2009. Although small and not much atmosphere, the fried cod and the puntarelle salad were to die for! Can still taste it all these years later! Glad it's still there and people are still enjoying... More
