I was told about this place 10 years ago, and loved it then. So we were delighted to make another visit 10 years later to find it just as good (I tried to eat here in 2016, but it was closed thru August). We kept...it simple, and just ordered the signature filetti di baccala and zucchine fritte, and some beers (I noted that some wise and experienced local ladies at the next table also had some salads and a bottle of white wine too). The service was a little off-hand at first, but very fast and efficient (we were served in minutes) and they were very busy. I will go back next time I'm in Rome (unless it is August!).More

The fried fish is tasty enough, but the batter is thick, and oil drips as you eat. We have had much better fried seafood when in Napoli. It's somewhat expensive for the quantity offered. The waiters are a bit pushy.

The fish Baccalà is good an the salads are really special. A simple "basic" place if you want to eat healthy and good. Just please note that they only have Baccalà as the main course. I guess the appetizers are good, too.

I always love, when I'm back to Rome, to have a filetto di baccala in this very authentic place. We are coming here since many many years, since I was attending the University here. At the fried cod is always delicious. this historical place, in...the center of Rome, now in the new era, is also very compliant with all the rules to avoid the COVID-19 spread. The waiters are very strict and ask everyone to be compliant. Very well done !!! I will come again hopefully soon !More

after some years me and my husband wanted to go back to this local roman place to eat baccala. we always had nice memories of eating here, i especially loved the puntarelle. we arrived and got a table close the door. outside a man smoked...cigarillos and the smoke went directly to our table. i asked the staff to tell the man, who turned out to be the manager. he looked very annoyed, and after a few minutes he arrived at our table telling us that we were seated and the wrong way (corona distance measure). hi unfriendly behaviour felt mor like revenge for my complaint about the smoke. we decided to leave, and he started screaming and insulting us, loudly, saying we were “maleducati” and much much worse. i will never go back again. sad, as i really liked this place before...but with this new owners/management i can not anymore recommend this place to anyone, tourist nor roman!!!!!More

We took the Trastevere walking food tour, and this was our second stop. We had the most delicious cod filet that I've ever eaten, along with a glass of wine. We ate outside, so I don't know what other items they serve, but it appeared...that there were a number of fried foods.More

This restaurant was off the hook!!! This is far most best Baccala I’ve have eaten... My husband, who does NOT eat fish was able to eat this, that’s how fresh it is. The batter was so delicious, you get a decent size not small at...all. This is a must try, you will to regret it.. Gosh, talking about it right making my mouth watering for some.. If I ever go back to Rome, this will be the first stop I will make!!!!!More

Baccalà was good as usual, but we spent too much for: 2 baccalà 2 beers 2 salads 2 thin slices of watermelon 2 dishes with 5 anchovies in oil (from supermarket) 60 eur!!! I spent 57 in a nearby restaurant eating: 1 amazing cacio e...pepe 1 bottle of red wine 2015 1 focaccia 2 bruschetta 1 big tagliere (cold cuts and cheese) Cannot compare. What we paid is definitely a scam.More

If you like that, this is the place to go. For take away you need to go all the way through the restaurant and buy it directly from the people in the kitchen. You can also have a direct look at how they are made...while you are waiting. They are using big pans with boiling oil directly on the stove. No modern fryer here.More

I had seen this place on Instagram and wanted to try their famous battered fish. As we just wanted a piece of battered cod to try we asked if we could order for take away, to which we were told to go to the kitchen...at the back. There, a lovely lady asked what we wanted and even showed how she cooks it. They looked quite large so we just had one to share so she kindly cut it in half for us and wrapped it up for us to take away & eat. And was it delicious! Being English and enjoying Fish & Chips... I'd say this was better than some of the battered fish we get in England. The batter was so delicious and crisp and perfectly salted. I would definitely go back.More

The service is horrible. I ordered a portion of cod and came two filets and a salad. “Well served” I thought. I put some olive oil and started eating. After a few moments, the waiter came and, while I was eating, suddenly removed the salad...and the plate in front of me away, saying the quantity was wrong and it was for another table. I was left chewing with my knife and fork in my hands. Unbelievable. They then returned me my half eaten fish so I could resume eating. Is this the best way to handle the situation? They were lucky I was so ashamed I couldn’t scream at all of them for their stupidity.More

I used to come here when I was a child and I had a really pleasant memory of the place and the food. I came back here three nights ago after twenty years and it s still the same. The place is simple but the...food is good and the stuff really nice, it s a very typical Roman osteria. You definetely have to order the fried cod, it s the best. Really recommended!More
