Really fair price for a primo piato and a bottle of wine of the house. It taste delicious and also the location is great, near to the Pontile di Ostia.

Really good simple Italian fish cookery. No frills but excellent local ingredients. And the white wine recommended by the staff was very good too.

Nice little place. We had an early lunch outside on the patio. Sardines rolled with breadcrumbs and cheese were especially good. Great location to catch a bite, and you can feel superior to the people eating at McDonald’s next door.

We have been very happy with this restaurant, their dishes are tasty and they look quite original. It is a level above many places in Ostia. We recommend to try many dishes and share them.
