A delight! Generation 2 and 3 are working at this family restaurant, and it is a roman favorite for locals. You must get a reservation as the restaurant is tiny, and they run two sittings. The crudo or raw fish platter is very fresh, tasty and well thought out each night, the lobster catalana is fantastic and on par with the same dish at Dal Bolognese for much more money (we tried both!). The wine is well chilled and refreshing as is the welcoming attitude of the family and staff running the restaurant. It is a fish and seafood restaurant, very fresh. A lot of oysters go down every night, and the fish comes right of the ice rack at the front as you order.

We walked in without a reservation - do not try this! But they liked us, so they found a table for us. We let the staff pick our dinner. Amazing! Everything was so fresh and beautifully prepared. We ended up with a platter of all kinds of seafood, kind of a "tower of seafood" but flat. Shellfish, octopi, filets plus vegetables. Nice people - both the wait staff and the customers. A lovely evening!

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...
