The fish market is a particular experience you should try if finding yourself in Rome. It's not your typical restaurant and if you're going with a bunch of snobs you'll be disappointed but it's definitely one of the best fish restaurants in the city. It's almost self service, you pay when you order but it has really good prices for those of you who don't want to spend half a salary for a fish dinner. The food is excellent, you chose your fish (which is still moving by the way) and they'll cook it for you. The setting really reminds you of an actual fish market. Service is not very good but at least it's fast so you might want to order the second course after you finished the first, otherwise they might bring it all at the same time. Definitely book ahead. Did I mention the food is great?

I went twice to this place,the first time I enjoyed the new feel and new way of handling things...you have to pay befor you can order! Thought it was something different...but the next day I felt sick!

The second time,I did not enjoy it AT ALL,the garcon bringing us wine was very rude and unhelpfull! we went with a group of 15 and 8 of us was sick the next 3 days,all 8 of us had the TRITTICO!

It was crouded,cold,and the food was not good!

We-same group of old friends- visited again the premise for the first time again after summer, when our review was enthusiastic....
Something is changing ...maybe because of the refurbishing of the bar area?
In a few words the "cartocci" with the fried stuff were visibly much smaller, though the quality of food in general was always very, very good, but what now unpleasantly strikes is the service: every single dish was literally thrown in a haste in the first free corner of the table and to order some wine, water or bread, yo have to " intercept" one of the only two waiters attending the numerous tables. We understand that in moments of economical crisis something has to be done, but restrictions to the cuts, especially in services, should be seriously considered.
Stay tuned: another chance will be given in a couple of months....

Found this one night looking for something other than pasta and pizza. Very busy, full of locals. Once you get a table you order and pay at the cashier. Food is delivered on baking sheets. BIG servings! We ordered way too much. Cod (?) was delicious, baby calamari was the best I have ever had. Should have skipped the salad and fries. If you want wine you have to go to the little bar to be served and pay separately. Service is waitresses running the food to tables, don't expect much. It was odd the way they set up but we enjoyed our meal and left happy.

This singual restaurant replaced an ancient factory in a Rome suburb where old warehouses are turning into fashionable restaurant and clubs. If you're expecting a relaxed atmosphere, you like shabby chic style, and good fresh food, this gonna be the right place!

Just choose a fish, pay, have a sit. In a while a fragrant dish will materialise in front of you and all you must do is to enjoy it!
