“Delicious seafood”
Reviewed August 26, 2011

Great place recommended by Romeo & BibI bed & breakfast' . A couple of blocks from the Vatican. Had great mussels and clams, octopus and rigatoni in a pesto sauce ,risotto with scampi in a rose sauce.

One doesn't get served until 8:30 PM. So just enjoy the wine beforehand.

“Best Fish in Rome”
Reviewed May 8, 2011

This was a delightful find near our hotel in Rome. A delightful little restaurant run by a young woman who is from a long line of fishermen. The pictures of her family are on the walls and it lends itself to a nice atmosphere. The meals were the best we had in Rome. The fish was simply amazing in flavor and perfectely cooked. Very nice selection and perfect portions. A highlight of our trip and comers highly recommended.

“A great find after a trip to the Vatican.”
Reviewed April 15, 2011

We stumbled across this really great place,after a trip to the Vatican.The sun was shining we sat outside and had excellent service from Manuella whose great-grandparents had sold fish nearby.She explained the menu to us,we don't speak Italian.We ate ample portions of succulent mussels,followed by the most delicious pecorino and anchovy pasta all for 15 euros each.An absolute bargain and we could have had another course.After a 5 day stay in Rome this was by far the best meal we had.Manuella thanks for a super lunch.

“Happy, buzzing restaurant with great food.”
Reviewed May 15, 2010

Service here can't be beaten for charm and speed. We had the most delicious meal, starting with a mixed seafood platter and then enjoying wonderful further fish dishes. Apart from one table of American diners, all the others were locals, always a good sign. Strongly recommended.
