A great hidden spot off of the Campo di Fiori. A very simple menu with the filet as the highlight. Be sure to try this with a cold beer and the local salads of gallinella and puntarella as a side dish.

A piece of fried cod, beer and salad runs about 10 euros. I have had fish and chips in pubs across Canada, the Eastern Seaboard of... More

One has to get the lightly battered Cod fillet. very very good. My advice is order two or three for two people. Salads are very good. Service was somewhat slow in a chaotic atmosphere. Cash Only .

We went here for dinner one night & I have to say it was the awesome. The cod was lightly battered & fried - not greasy. We got the Roman salad and it was the best we have ever had. The fish was 5euro. For 2 meals we paid less than 20 euro including wine. High recommended

We have been to Rome a few times and have always gone to Filetti for a meal that has not disappoint us. The first time was in 2008 and the most recent visit was in May 2016 and the quality of the food has not changed. The fried fish is very consistent and the salad is very unique. The price... More

We got to experience this place during a walking food tour of Trastevere with The Roman Foodie. We tasted what they were known for - the friend Baccala fillet and it was amazing. So fresh and lightly battered. Paired with their table wine, it was definitely a great little snack.

We went to Filetti di Baccala on great food tour. It was some of the best fried fish I've ever had. They give it to you piping hot in paper, and you can get it with a salad or other sides. Just delicious and a nice departure from pasta and the various secondi piatti we had in Rome. The location... More

Located in a little square near the jewish ghetto, this place serves delicious fried food..especially the codfish: the batter is crispy and tasty and the cod comes moist as it should! I also tried the fried zuchinni which was great.

Hard to believe, but spend enough time in Italy and you can grow tired of the ubiquitous pasta and pizza restaurants. We were first taken to this place on a walking food tour, and enjoyed it so much that we returned a few days later on our own. Delicious fried fish. Simple menu, cold beer, and a festive and friendly... More

This place is a lot of fun, dining family style and elbow-to-elbow with the locals. If you don't like fried fish or casual dining, then this place is not for you. The fish comes out piping hot, and you can order salads, and other sides, and the house wine. The fagioli are fantastic, too! Expect to wait a bit but... More

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.
