Visited for lunch and warmly received upon arrival. The restaurant patrons were mostly families which was a great sign! The menu has English translations which is handy! A lot of seafood on the menu. We had the clams and mussels to start which was delicious . As a main, lobster pasta which was ok.. There wasn't enough lobster meat and... More

The catch of the day was truly fresh and tasty, I definitely recommend this restaurant for seafood. The waiter was friendly and helpful with his recommendation and wine pairing suggestion. The atmosphere is sober, not impressive but certainly adequate for a business dinner

I wanted to have dinner there this evening, but the place is closed! So don't waste your time in getting over there! Luckily for me it was close to the hotel.

A bit pricy but very delicious. Staff is friendly, seafood is fresh, ambient is excellent. Definitely a place for fish and shell fish in Salaria region.

I think my second visit here and in company of a regular who says this is his favourite fish restaurant. The ambience is excellent and the extremely capable and knowledgeable waiters make eating here a pleasure. The food was fantastic too. A lovely experience. Thank you.

I have been visiting Rome with my wife. I stayed in a hotel across the street from restaurant but did not go to Il Tirso until for the last two days. It was magnificent. Both food and service. This place will stay deeply in my memory as something extraordinary.

The thing that stands out the most is the fresh seafood. We had a platter of varied seafood starters - all delicious, after which I had my favorite - spaghetti vongole, and was not disappointed. The restaurant's decor is very crisp and fresh, which is very appealing too. A lovely and friendly place to go back to in Rome.

I came to Il Tirso for a business lunch and we had the mixed raw seafood appetizer- great quality with a quiet ambiance. After the appetizer we had pasta with artichokes and fish but the fish got a bit lost in the sauce and the pasta was a bit too soft for my taste. I would come back- a good... More

Il Tirso opened at its current location two years ago. Very soon thereafter my Italian business associates ,who have also proven to be reliable foodies, have been encouraging me to give it a try. But despite it being located almost directly across the street from my hotel (Beverly Hills), I somehow could never find it on my several intervening visits.... More

I have found Il Tirso to be a decent restaurant serving mostly fish dishes. The carpacio was fresh, apetizing, but had too much lemon on it, and when this happens the citric acid burns, or cooks the fish, while the spagetti con vongole vorace were almost perfect. Almost, because few clams were cracked, sign they were put into oil at... More
