Pascucci al Porticciolo is a fish restaurant that is a rare find. It is the creation of Gianfranco Pascucci, age 41, a self-taught chef who earned his first Michelin star last year. Such was the rare harmony of flavors and tastes that dining there was pure poetry. Only the freshest of ingredients are used (no farm-raised fish allowed). The menu is too long to detail here. Most dishes are recipes of Pascucci’s invention. But I will say that the tartare of tuna was superb, unlike any I have ever had—as was the swordfish tempura.
As should be expected, prices are high. Expect to pay €100/person before wine, taxes and tips. But very worth the detour for those who love fish and like to eat well. Even those staying in Rome city center should consider traveling out to the Port of Fiumicino for this dining experience with scores of sailboats moored 100 meters away on the Tiber River.
