If you are a fan of seafood this small out of the way place is for you. Wonderful waiter from Albania took great care of us even though we had no reservations. It's small so you may want to call ahead.

The service was good, but the food was just ok. There are so many nice restaurants in Rome we just felt this didn't quite hit the mark; particularly considering the many good reviews on TripAdvisor. The menu was unnecessarily brief in both Italian and English...More

We came for a nice seafood dinner with a wine, it's better to order place in advance, especially on the weekend, we didn't and just had luck that the last table was available, the staff makes a very good impression from a to z, the...More

Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
