“Superb Fresh Fish restaurant, when on”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2012

So this is a Sardinian restaurant, and it is run by the crew of Adnan Kashoggi's yacht who in the lat 1980's hung out on the Costa Smeralda in Sardinia with the great "bonfire of the vanities" that has become the Emerald Coast. Kashoggi if you have been hiding out on some remote asteroid was a superb Saudi Self promoter who managed to parlay himself into selling Freightliner trucks in the US to Saudi Arabia, and then into becoming biggest arms merchant in the world, with corresponding life style, yachts luxury villa's appartments and broads.

So his crew after he was briefly arrested by the Feds, [subsequently released] decided that they would get off boat and set up restaurant in a not so good area of Rome, Re di Roma. Ambience is of Eco Blu the yacht, a bit cheesy. Clientele is the usual "Euro trash" Italian soubrette's dating soccer players, [sort of Berlusc cast offs].

All that being said, IF and ONLY IF, you can speak to te main dude, and tell him on the phone that you want a really good fish all bells and whistles meal [oysters, raw spigola and the works] with some truly spectacular White Sardinian wines, then if you get lucky this is going to be a meal to be remember.

Expensive as hell, not real value for money, but when they hit it, this is a meal that you will never forget.

If off, will be a colossal waste of money.
