Now my favorite spot in Rome. Cozy, Intimate joint. Food is freshly prepared which means there is a bit of a wait but well worth it. Had the Tagliatelle Pasta with crabs and the jumbo prawn baked in salt. Simply Excellent. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Definitely worth the price.

Definitely go here if you're looking for amazing Italian food with all the extras included. So yes, this is technically a seafood restaurant, but we didn't know that when we stumbled upon it one night absolutely ravenous. There is however a meat menu if you ask for it and it's all to die for! We were given amazing complimentary starters,... More

Has a very good evening meal here, Started, after a prosecco and amuse bouche from the house, with a shared tempura and then mains of seabream baked in a potato "pancake and tuna carpaccio in lime with capers, followed by puddings of tiramisou and semifreddo. Service was a bit slow, but we were going nowhere and the table was comfortable.... More
