My wife and I have been multiple times to Grottaferrata the last couple of years, but for an unclear reason we never ended up in restaurant “Da Gastone” and I must admit that was a pitty, because you can eat really well in this place.

We caught up this time and went twice last week. As it was still too cold to use the terrace during the evenings (April), we got seated in one of the elegant internal dining rooms (note they also have a veranda). You’re immediately offered a view on the catch of the day to facilitate your selection of fresh fish. Opposite the fish counter, fresh prosciutto and funghi porcini is being displayed to get you hungry for your meal.

From our two visits I recall the really superb Insalata di polipo con patate (antipasto); the gorgeous spaghetti alle vongole (superfresh, lots of vongole, awesome dish according to my wife!); the sublime pasta scoglie (both primi di mare) and a fantastic grigliate di paste.

The half bottle of Frascati superiore della casa was excellent value for the money (€6!).

Briefly, we’ve eaten very well here. Prices are still reasonable for this excellent quality: we paid €100, resp. €80 for two.

We can highly recommend this place to you!

I went there on a business dinner with my rep in Italy, who knows the owner. There is no set menu, they serve everything fresh. The fish is really fresh and sells by weight. the food is excellent it is not very loud, so it is easy to have a quiet conversation. the naturally sparking water they serve is a must. as for sparkling water. Be sure to get somebody with knowledge of Italian. the Prosciutto is hand carved. The mozzarella is fresh and as you cut on it the "milk" oozes out. really fresh.

We were recommended this restaurant by one of our guides for Rome - her father worked at the restaurant. We're so pleased that we took up the recommendation. The atmosphere in this place is great - it is a typical local restaurant, very friendly, very very good food, cooked simply, and priced very reasonably.
I would recommend anyone who has had enough of restaurants which cater primarily for tourists to try this place.
