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.

Great atmosphere by the sea and the food was so fresh! I tried sardines for the first time and they were awesome! Everything we ordered was great and at a great price!
