Food was average, staff was mainly friendly

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

Bacala an Italian staple, the most delicious fried cod, can be found in the Campo de Fiori area. The restaurant is located in a little courtyard with a small and lovely church. From the outside, it is'nt much to behold, but the memory of that moist, perfectly fried fish lingers. If you like your fish fried, try it with no... More

You can eat in or just walk straight to the kitchen and ask for one piece or 2 to go, pay the lady who fries the fish and enjoy!

I already heard about this resto and I had the chance to try it personally when I was getting around with some Aussie friends in Campo de' Fiori area. Where looking around for a resto and I just wanted to eat something typical "romano". After asking where we could find a good place where to eat "filetti di baccalà", we... More

I occasionally have to travel for work and work alongside a mix of fairly elite members of the art establishment and also with more humble locals. One night in Rome I decided to take up my drivers advice of a restaurant rather than an art gallery directors choice. I was stunned by this place. Sitting elbow to elbow with all... More

if you are looking for fancy this is not the place but if you looking for great food for a great price then you must go. Everything on the menu is about E5 and the fish is out of this wourld. It opens at 6 pm so don't go for lunch. It's a quick and easy dinner.

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.

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.
