Fish, clams, prawns, mussels, oysters accompanied by wine. A local delight of seafood paradise to the taste buds. The restaurant is run by a family. Better to make a reservations as there are not many tables.

One of the safest bets if you want to eat fresh fish in Rome at a decent price. Try the various fish carpaccio starters and the the local must: pasta e fagioli con frutti do mare... A thick soup with beans and seafood...

This is my second visit to Benito e Gilberto over a ten year period. Family run, in a small hosteria with no more than ten tables. An inconspicuous entrance makes this a phenomenal hideaway in a highly touristy area of Rome. Extremely fresh fish is the highlight, served both as classic dishes or as tasty originals (the pasta con fagioli e vongole is to die for). But the winning detail is that I never saw a menu - the staff (mother & daughter) simply figured out what we were in the mood for and brought a selection of fresh appetizers and mains to follow. Simpler dishes for the kids, more adventurous for the adult. Fantastic experience.

Alone, I ate too much fish, all of it very good. The turbot was a little swimming in its own sauce, but the marinated salmon, oysters and baby calamari were excellent. A couple of glasses of reasonable Friulano to wash it down. The bill was a little over the top, €90, and the service rushed me out of there. Go for the second sitting at 9.30pm so you can relax. On the first sitting they are in a hurry and you tend to eat too quickly. Despite this, recommended.
