Decided to visit this restaurant to sample the sea food menu. Ordered a lobster dish and prawn dish which was very expensive. Prawn dish was mediocre but lobster dish was inedible. We was told that it might be the wrong time of year for lobster, well don't serve it then. To be fair the manager did not charge for the... More

We ate here at the recommendation of our concierge. It is a short taxi ride out of center. We wanted a non touristy restaurant. We got an expensive tourist trap where they weigh the fish and even the shrimp. One shrimp is about 10 Euro by the scale..so watch out for what you get. We were on to the bread... More

The best fish restaurants in Rome have the reputation of being atrociously expensive. There is at least ine exception. In two we spent last night only €97, including 10 in tip ! I had one of the best fritto di paranza ever and my companion a superb seabass filet. A bottle of Cinque Terre (not easy to find in Rome)... More

We stumbled on this on our 1st trip to Italy! The oysters were second to none and tasted like the ocean with just a bit of lemon! The grilled prawns were out of this world I can't remember having better prawns! Service was great and ambiance could not be beat ! I wish I lived closer so I could eat... More

We have been to this restaurant two times. we have not been disappointed. Love the Window of the restaurant which displays the fish as if they were still swimming. Will be back again.

This place located near the Colosseum was recommended by our hotel. We had grilled fresh sea bream (Branzino) on a bed of grilled vegetables. It was fantastic! The waitress brought the fish to us to choose and it was large enough for 2 people (800 grams at 9 euros per gram) so you only need to order a couple of... More

We have been there yesterday evening. There were more waiters then guests. After dinner we understood. Once a restaurant with very good food - not cheap but refined dishes. The famous antipasto of row and cooked fish changed into 5 simple things. For this they still ask a pretty high price of EUR 35,00 per person. The actual quality is... More

This is a fantastic fish restaurant, but come loaded, it isn't cheap. Try sea bass carpaccio with truffle, then the paccheri with scampi are to die for or the taglierini con astice, definitely a milestone, and then any fish in any form. All fantastic, smooth tastes, bit unsalted, accompanied by a great recommendation for a chardonnay, and finally a chocolate... More

The food tasted reasonable but there was no fresh catch of the day for one person at this fish restaurant,with the catch for two of us costing 90 euro. Most expensive entree of our trip.
