A realy good seafoodrestaurant, close to the beach in Fiumicino. We had a nice starter with ham, salami, mozzarella and sonen more cheese. Our maincourseses where outstanding good, grilled shrimps, scampi and calamari for me and risotto with scampi for my wife. Amelindos white housewine was good and very cheep. Good service. We will comeback next time in the Romearea.

“A true Italian experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

If you wish to dine with the locals, que up with young couples holding babies at 9 pm, stand away from hurried waiters waving huge plates with fresh seafood, watch whatever is going to end up in your plate swimming and crawling about - this is the right location.
The food was good, fresh, the service prompt, and the ambiance positively informal.

“High Quality, Hurried Service, Big Portions”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

I’ve eaten here three times in the last year, as it is an easy drive from the Rome airport.

The restaurant is quite large, but very busy, even on weekdays it can be hard to get a table after 8 pm.

With the kind of volume they do, you can count on good seafood. Portions here are supersized compared to most Italian restaurants, particularly in starter dishes. Considering what you get, the prices are more than reasonable.

Once the place fills up, you can also count on brusque and unhelpful service. It has nothing to do with nationality, I was with Italian friends each time. This again, contrasts with most Italian restaurants.

Example of the good and the frustration: the menu lists a Zuppa di Pesce (mixed seafood stew) as an appetizer. I order a pasta, and ask the waiter (in Italian) if the zuppa is enough to make a main dish. Yes, no problem, he replies. When that dish arrives, it’s enough for a main dish for three hungry men. Yes, it was very good, lots of great ingredients, but it’s embarrassing to have more food than you can possibly eat put down in front of you--the waiter should have warned us, or at least told me I should have cancelled my pasta dish.

Then again, the price of the dish was €19. Something of similar size and quality would be four times that in the United States, so it’s not like they were trying to rip me off.

In short: if you want excellent seafood and a lot of it for a very fair price, check it out. If you’re looking for atmosphere or good service, stay away. For me, the first consideration outweighs the second, which is why I return.
