We wanted fish, and we got it here -- each variety beautifully cooked. We ordered the six-dishes antipasto course, and while some of those things were a little too 'fishy' for me (my husband consumed everything with great enthusiasm), it was interesting to see the different ways that fish and seafood could be prepared. I wouldn't normally order a whole plate of anything fried at dinner-time, but the morsels of fried things we had in the antipasto showed that the cook was very adept with the fryer. The rooms are not fancy, but everything was comfortable even on a cold, rainy night. The welcome from the owner and the table service were gracious. This is really not tourist season, so the restaurant was not crowded, but three groups of people (all Italian, seemingly local and known to the owner) were coming in just as we were leaving at 9:30. (As Americans, we have a hard time with the late dining times in Europe, so we're always the first in and out of a restaurant there!) A testimony to the restaurant's local appeal and authenticity is our memory of being taken there six years ago by Rome natives (the parents of a friend).
