We use to eat seafood and fish at Sa Tanca and the quality is always very good as well as the service (excellent!). Compared to other restaurants the price is very competitive. Starters highly suggested!

Went here after reading the Tripadvisor reviews and was not disappointed! Service was attentive and friendly, food tasted fresh and delicious! The only suggestion I would give to the staff is that if desserts are going to take awhile just let the customers know at the start. My partner and I were waiting ages and thought they forgot about us,... More

Everything was phenomenal. From the wine to the starters to the main courses. What really stood out about this place, besides the food, was the fact that even the garnish on the plates was delicious, fresh passonfruit and tomatoes.

This restaurant served amazing seafood. We found it last minute, it is on Via Palermo just off Nazionale. For starters I had crab Linguine which was very tasty and my partner prawn pasta. For mains she had Sea Bass / seafood selection and I had Prawns. Both dishes were delicious, I would recommend Sa Tanca Crostaceria to anyone visiting Rome

It's a new must for us when visiting Rome: great food, great service and top class ingredients. Hands down the best seafood restaurant in Rome.

My starter (I don't remember what it was called) but it was the one with some kind of pasta with prawns was absolutely delicious. My main was also great I got the seafood selection and I was surprised to get a very decent amount... More

Started with oysters, hard to find of this quality in Rome, and we were given some little extras as a treat, as well as a salmon carpaccio that was extraordinary. We were four and had three different entrees, all excellent. Drank wine by the glass as we all wanted something different, and yet in the end the prices were entirely... More

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!
