A seafood restaurant in Rome’s Trastevere
This seafood restaurant, run by the gregarious chef Fabio di Felice and his wife, is just what you want from a night out in Rome: impeccable quality, delicious classic dishes and a cosy ambience. Specialising in fresh fish, raw and cooked, from the Gulf of Terracina, this restaurant is just near the lively Piazza Trilussa in Trastevere. Start with an antipasto of raw fish, definitely try the pacchero con crostacei – an authentic pasta dish with shellfish – or gnocchi with red prawns and Roman Pecorino cheese and finish with one of their delectable homemade cakes; from the rich chocolate tart still warm from the oven to the typical torta di limone or their fruit gelato direct from the Amalfi Coast. There are over 100 wine labels, both Italian and French. Their set menus are incredibly popular, and range from €35 to €65. For €35 you have the choice of an appetiser and first course or a main course, dessert and coffee. Best night to indulge? Friday, when they put on live music. And if your dining companion isn’t a fan of seafood, don’t worry – these guys seek to please.
