Great!

Yum yum. A great place to go to sample a Roman specialty - baccala, or fried cod. Well worth a visit, although perhaps not for everyone. Kind of like the Roman version of fish and chips. We had a lovely evening.

My cousin took me here because I liked the Baccala at Est, Est Est so much. He said it is the best known in Rome for Baccala. Very limited menu but the fish comes out quickly and piping hot. at very reasonable prices. He said on Friday's and in the summer the lines can be very long. I enjoyed it... More

I was there recently after four years and the place has not changed, the staff is direct but kind, the food is always good (cod especially) and the atmosphere very informal. A good place to take freinds or guests are visiting Rome

This place isn't for everyone. Salt cod is a rarity in the U.S. and usually mixed with potatoes and served as a dip-brandade. The fish is dried and very salty and has to be soaked to re-hydrate and mitigate the salt. Filetti manages to get a lot of the salt out of the fish but it still may be too... More

Just walk in the door and walk right back to the kitchen. These fillets are huge and soooo yummy. Best meal under 5 euro I've ever eaten. Even if you normally hate fish do try them -- you will be pleasantly surprised! They also have a wonderful house white wine that pairs perfectly with the fish.

The dishes are basic and simple but the Baccala is superb in special the coating the place is simple and you get the filling you are in Napoli but it pays to eat in this place.

Fantastic filetti di baccala take away. Usually I enter the trattoria, go straight to the kitchen, order a hot fried filetto di baccalà and eat it on the go

This place was right around the corner from our lodging near Campo De Fiori. The item to order is the fried baccala, which you wrap in the paper they give you and just eat it. It needs nothing else. Our waiter was friendly and welcoming. The prices were very reasonable.

We saw this restaurant on a Rick Steves show and happened to be strolling by one evening. The fish is great and the restaurant has a very local, authentic vibe. My one complaint was that the house wine was not great (we had house wine at a number of restaurants in Rome and this was by far the worst). Definitely... 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.
