We have been to this restaurant many times and it has been very consistent in the quality of the food. Pizzas are delicious and served very quickly. There is a a good take out trade in pizza and other delights. The service is attentive without being invasive. The menu has many dishes to offer. The atmosphere is casual, local and pleasant.

There is no way I would have predicted that we would ne at Il Pellicano. We were staying at Casal Palocco and I looked at TA and it looked interesting.
We drove and ended up at another restaurant close by. It was empty and I thought bad mistake. Once we found it we walked in and it was busy and buzzing so it was lucky we booked.
I had a pasta with truffle and asparagus which was different and interesting. Combined with the 2006 Brunello I was in heaven. My wife had a very good turbot and potato dish.
All the time pizza was leaving at a rapid rate. The owner taking personal control of there cooking and finishing touches.
Very much recommended and if I get back before we fly out I will have a pizza.

We live part time in Italy and were with another couple from the USA for a weekend the end of May to see Rome. We were staying in the Ostia Antica area, and Il Pellicano had been recommended by our son who had been there a couple years ago. We went on Saturday night and the restaurant was full with reservations. The owners worked it out so we would be able to have a table even with no reservation. Our meals were so good we made a reservation for the following night. The husband and wife owners have been in business for 30 or more years, and still have the original pizza maker and waiter from when they started their business. The owners not only help with serving, cleaning tables, and greeting people, but also interact with the customers a lot. They really enjoy being with their clientele. Their menu is varied, and every dish we had was perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. They did not skimp on either quality or quantity. Their prices are very good, and I think the $$$ shown makes it look like it is more expensive than it is. This is not a tourist restaurant since most of the people were from the area and known by the staff which is always a good recommendation. We will always visit this restaurant any time we are in the Rome area. It is worth making a special effort to get to Ostia Antica if for no other reason than to eat here.
