We needed a break from the usual meats and padtas and went in search of a genuine seafood restaurant, and we were recommended La Rosetta by our concierge, and what a marvel it turned out to be ! It's th oldest seafood restaurant in Rome dates back to 1966. 6 varieties of oysters to start with, then clams with spaghetti... More

This restaurant, tucked up a sidestreet near The Pantheon, is one of Rome's best. Whether you seek seafood or meats, La Rosetta is up there with the best. Desserts are fab too with house made gelati, quite apart from a fabulous selection of cakes. A wonderful wine list too, which may be why it is so popular with local businessmen... More

loved the way the chef suggested dishes based on what was in season. We had the most amazing mushrooms that I have ever tasted. Evidently in Italy there is a short period when they are at their best. Lovely service and food.

We were amazed at the quality of the seafood, raw and cooked! The best we ever had, anywhere! That first seafood platter was just out of this world! Oysters, the freshest! Sashimi of 4 amazing fish and squid, unbelievable, those tubular oysters and shrimp, can't get over that starter! Our waiter and servers went above and beyond, wine choices superb,... More

If you are looking for seafood in Rome, this is the restaurant to get it. It is pricey, probably the most expensive meal that we had on our entire vacation in Italy. We had a sampling of hot and cold appetizers, seafood pasta, and sea bass. Everything was fresh and delicious. Service was excellent. The only downside would be price.... More

This place is consistent, we've been a few time over the last 2 years and always PERFECT. The wine list is simply a joy to read, to choose is difficult but what a pleasure. They even did special dishes for the kids This place is a 10 in my books....

On arrival we got a welcoming dish from the shef! Nothing we ordered but it tasted delicious! Had the mixed seafood starter, expensive for sure, but considering the quality, it was worth it! Great to get a mix of different types of raw fish and cooked fish! If you are planning to go here, save it for a special occasion,... More

Food as food should taste in Rome! Amazing tastes, super fresh sea food, service super friendly, and a great and easy location. The inside decor is simple, I suggest sitting outside!

We came across this restaurant by chance and were so glad we did. The service was excellent, attentive without being overbearing. I love seafood and the food was superb, wonderful selection and excellently presented. The menu suggests wines to accompany the dishes but waiter was helpful in assisting us with alternative choices. I also enjoyed the baba with limoncello. Would... More

I admit that this is an excellent seafood restaurant. Food is fine and interior is nicely decorated. However, the main waiter's discriminative treatment spoiled our dinner enjoyment. He never served us wine and water after the first time while he was always paying attention to his Italian guests and was friendly serving them. I thought this was another case occasionally... More
