This gem on a backstreet in Trastevere, our favorite neighborhood, is small and cozy with an emphasis on seafood. Excellent bass in salt crust for two. Nice wine list and very friendly staff.

Trastevere
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded
postcard, a little worn around the edges but still
