“Great Seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2011

Excellent seafood restaurant near the Circo Massimo. Family run restaurant that's more popular with locals than tourists. Have eaten here many times and the grilled fish is always done perfectly. House wine is a good value.

I loved this place. A family owned restaurant (the wife still cooks in the kitchen). Myself and 3 friends started with crostini, followed by a platter of frutti di mare (mussels, razor clams, oysters, and prawns), the pasta was made with fresh mushrooms in a truffle sauce. We had a salt encrusted fillet of beef done perfect. 3 hours and 4 bottles of wine later we finished with berries in a balsamic vinegar and of course a digestivi. go there and spend many hours eating and drinking and chatting

Special athmosphere. Locals only! And only men. White table clothes. Very good Risotto al tartufo d`Alba and Tagliatelle al porcini
