Heard so much about this resturant. Booked way in advance. Food was good. Service was rude, rude and rude.

As the name indicates, it is a fish restaurant. It has a totally assuming decor and few tables. Reservation is a must. Once you sit, you forget everything else and the different ways they serve fish and frutta di mare sends you to a level of enjoyment rarely felt .

We came here for a midweek dinner and had an excellent meal. Smallish restaurant, full of locals, close to the Vatican. The Tuna tartare and Carpaccio of fish were very good (€13-18 for starters) as were the main courses (€15+) of fresh fish or fish with pasta. Nice interior and seating outside. We were being treated by a friend who... More

A local recommended this restaurant to us and it was great. All of the main dishes are sea food. If you like sea food, this is the place. The restaurant is filled with locals and a few tourists. The staff is friendly. Wine list is good. It is busy, so reservations are a good idea.

Excellent tuna, scampi, oysters, you name it. Plain grilled, lemon and olive oil. The best. We had the mixed fish plate and the grilled tuna, and Tuna tartare. Highly recommend.

Probably one of the best fish restaurants in Rome. Just outside the turistic area, minutes away from Cipro metro station. Everything was perfect would highly recommend it. Tip: if you want to taste the real Tiramisu whilst in Rome, have one at `Pompi` instead.

I was not expecting much, my father is from the Island of Elba and the seafood there is so amazing. I was very pleasantly surprised with the quality and taste of all of the seafood dishes. Expensive but a great meal in Rome is going to cost you.

We were told to look for a restaurant a few blocks from the Vatican but not to go to any restaurant where they were begging you to come in and to look for one that was crowded. This one fit the bill. Very crowded and yet, they welcomed our family of six with open arms. The food was quick and... More

Via Tunisi has been a second home to me since 1966 when I first came to Pensione Alimandi at # 8, How many times I passed Il Bar sotto il Mare( it's been there for about the last 6 years) and wanted to try it. Tonight I had that opportunity. The director at Hotel Alimandi made the reservations and accompanied... More

We ate here at lunch time and the food was the best we had in Rome! Very reasonably priced and clearly a lot of care taken with the food- the tuna steak was cooked to perfection! Lovely, friendly staff and popular with locals so a really authentic atmosphere- I would recommend this restaurant to anyone!
