Arrived here just as the day's fresh catch was being unloaded - awesome! We were invited to select our fish from this amazing array plus ordered oysters, sea urchin roe, clams, etc. It was the BEST! My twenty-something daughter, who is not a seafood fan, was converted at this establishment. Wine steward offered fine range of wines. Place full of locals who embraced us. Cannot say enough good things! Don't miss it!

We where taking a late evening walk in the streets of Rome. While walking back to our hotel through the charming Via Giulia, we noticed the restaurant and decided to get in. We made no reservations, just walked in around 10:00 PM. We started with fresh clams which where very fresh. The Tuna tartar was excellent, one of the best we've had. The lobster Catalan style was just as good. Since this was our second dinner we had no room for dessert which was a shame. The assortments of sorbet in natural fruit shells looked amazing!
definitely worth it!!!

I love Assunta Madre. I was taken there for the first time by a friend, who has since become a very dear, because of our shared love of fish and quality fish restaurants. Assunta Madre has an amazing array of fresh fish dishes sourced daily from the coast.

I love the atmosphere, whether indoors or out and have whiled away many a Summer evening lost in the amazing food, atmosphere and magic of the place. Frequented by some of Rome's finest and despite the array of A-listers from far and wide, the service remains heart-felt and truly Southern.

Expensive, yes, but then it is also value for money.

Via Giulia is a tiny road, so parking can be a bit challenging, but there are people to help you park - if spaces are available of course. I recommend a taxi or parking a little further afield.

With so many memories, this restaurant is and will always remain on of my favourites in Rome.

Suitability: I could only select one, so I thought I would incorporate that info here: Best suited for couples, families, friend, business and also when alone - Enjoy!
