Fried goodness...that's it.

This was a great find near Campo di Fiore on my first day in Roma. A nice place for a tired travelling couple to plop down and not worry about which courses to choose or the sequencing of primi and secondi. No, this place is all about fried. Fried zucchini and more to the point--fried fish... read more

This place is great for a fast, cheap meal in Rome. Sited in a square just off the Campo di Fiore, it serves just a single main dish - plates piled high with little cod fillets fried in a lovely light batter (almost like tempura) which you eat with your fingers wrapped in squares of paper. It also serves good... More

We spent a few weeks in centro storico and enjoyed dining at Filetti di Baccala. However, we quickly learned that you do not have to sit down to enjoy this yummy fish treat. You can walk to the back and order the baccala to go. I highly recommend Filetti di Baccala. But, be warned that they close at some point... More

We had a little problem in finding the place, it was said to be near to Campo di Fiore, which it certainly is, but the exact location was not clear. We can advice you to ask for directions to the Santa Barbara church and square. The baccala with deepfried zuccini and mixed salad along with the atmosphere in the restaurant... More

Discovered baccala on a food tour. Lovely cod in a light batter. The perfect Italian take away! Fresh fish with a glass of house vino. The way to enjoy Rome!

The restaurant was recommended to me as typical Roman food. The entire place was just average, the food, the inventory, the wine. The waiter was friendly, except one guy, he seemed to be the owner, who was very impolite. I don't think that this place is a "must" during a trip to Rome.

I came across a tourist video searching for the best things to do in Rome and going to this restaurant was recommended!! Fortunately for us we ended a tour on the first night in Rome in campo Di fiore. The restaurant was only 50 metres from there!! Can't wait to get back to Rome to go back! The best fluffiest... More

This is an interesting place to eat: just around the corner or Campo di Fiori, very crowded and very basic. They serve fried cod fish, bread and wine, and you can add things like pecorino cheese, anchovies and mixed salad. I can imagine why some people are dissatisfied: this is not a classy restaurant. But when you're beyond that: just... More

Filetti di Baccala - that sums it up, this place serves fried salt cod, and they do it well. The menu includes a few other options, mostly fried sides. The fried zucchini was a perfect side for the cod. We paid something like 6 Euro for a liter of the house white wine. It wasn't a great wine but it... More

Neighborhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
