Fodor's Review

This gorgeous space with its chandeliers and soaring original brickwork ceilings, houses one of the best seafood restaurants in the Eternal City. The eight-course tasting menu is extremely tempting—it might include the likes of cuttlefish-ink tagliatelle with mint, artichokes, and roe, or shrimp from the island of Ponza with rosemary, bitter herbs, and porcini mushrooms—and, for Rome, a relative bargain at €85. There are also plenty of à la carte items: a crudo (raw fish) appetizer, for instance, might include a perfectly seasoned fish tartare trio, sweet scampi, and a wispy carpaccio of red shrimp. The restaurant's version of spaghetti with sea urchin is exquisite and delicate; follow up with a main course of freshly caught seasonal fish prepared to order.
