Amazing restaurant, very friendly and attentive staff. Let us change the main of a set menu as we wanted the lobster, no issue at all. Even saw that we had a Blueberry Sicilian Fortified Wine as a night cap before we left. Couldn't ask for a better night. Caio

We had octpus salad, scampi fretuna , clam risotto , sea bass grilled and blue lobster. They are expressing the freshness of all the seafood. Worth the price, highly recommend!

Amazing fresh seafood. The raw langoustines with papaya and the raw octopus with rocket and olives were incredible. Their raw selection is great too - the red sicilian raw prawns were excellent. The service was very attentive and extremely polite and nice (not always the case in Italian restos) - would highly recommend.

Good selection of oysters from France. One of the few places in Rome where you can get good fish. Good fish, a bit pricey and very very slow.

We arrived without any expectations on our last night in Rome. Although we where early (my mother does not want to eat to late) the welcome was friendly and pleasant and we got a free prosecco to start with. From the menu we choose the 4 course tasting menu and all of the dishes we tried where excellent. It might... More

The warm, elegant decor is the first thing that greets you then after seating you are attended to by professional, efficient staff. A good way to start the evening. It is a seafood restaurant with an extensive, interesting menu and adequate wine list. Starting with a complementary prosecco and appetiser was a very nice touch and got better from there.... More

The food was really good, the atmosphere great, and the service excellent. Good value for money. The Sardinian taste complements the seafood in an exciting manner. The Sardinan White Wine chosen with the food was also very delicious.

The place was a recommendation from friends. Six of us came to the place for dinner. I have to say that I pay as much attention to the decor as I do to the food. The decor has an alluring and a unique touch and the food was fresh and mouthwatering. We decided to go with the tasting menu and... More

It is the perfect place for a St Valentine's dinner - nice music, interior, and great seafood. Good value for money, too!
