I opened TripAdvisor on my phone and looked up restaurants in Rome - seafood--#1 is La Caletta! On the way back from Assisi I call and made a... More

We came here after visiting the Vatican City. Ordered seafood salad, which had very tender octopus and crunchy fresh prawns with a good sauce. We had the beef steak which was very good, and the fish of the day which was also very good. Very prompt service, very attentive to explain how the dishes were prepared as well.

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal here during our holiday in Rome. The food was excellent, a little on the pricier side but not overpriced for the quality of food. The restaurant itself is modern but cosy and romantic as well. The staff were excellent. The courses took a little longer than normal to come out but we enjoyed being there and... More

Today I went to La Caletta following TripAdvisor recommendations for a business dinner. The service was excellent and our server gave us great suggestions for our dinner. For appetizer we had the shrimp wrapped in zucchini, the seafood salad and the black ink polenta. They were all to die for. For dinner we had the fish baked in salt and... More

I was originally recommended this restaurant by my Italian boss, and since then I have eaten here many of the times I have visited Rome, both on business and as a tourist. The owner speaks English and is very attentive to his customer, helping you to choose the right fish from his fresh display caught that day. I often have... More

We went to La Calletta on our last day in Rome and I wish that we had gone earlier. The food was amazing and the atmosphere was fantastic. The owner helped us pick out some fresh fish and made suggestions on menu items that would we could try. I can't say enough about the service and the quality of the... More

Our residence hotel recommended this place. We were staying a few blocks away.We dined two nights in a row at this restaurant -- not because it was close but because it was so good! As an interior designer, I loved the simple black and white decor. The food is interesting and inventive. The antipasti zucchini wrapped shrimp is the very... More

We dropped in one night passing by and we are so glad we did. As the other reviews state, it is not cheap ($190 for 4 of us for mix of entree, mains, deserts and wine) but value was excellent for the quality. The owner was there and gave us excellent recommendations for food. In fact every 'invention' of his... More
