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.

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
