Elegant restaurant from the furnishings down to every single detail. The service is impeccable and professional, leaving some room for a friendly touch. The food has very good quality. Wine is excellent. My second time in this place with my family and I will definitely come back next time.

A lovely, white table cloth restaurant specializing in fish. Our last nite in Italy, and on a whim, because we used to live in Darien, CT, we ventured away from the airport hotel to dine here. As in our case, a traveler with a car, it was a worthwhile visit. As an in-transit passenger at FCO, it would be a coin toss whether I would incur the round trip expense of a taxi if that were my alternative. The staff, especially Paolo, was both professional and helpful in guiding four distinct appetites thru the menu. We chose not to order the full antipasti, which, in watching the other diners, was probably a mistake. The seven components looked very tasty and could easily be shared. As a primi, the house pasta specialty of truffles and shrimp was an absolute 11 on a scale of 10; the spaghetti frutti di mare and pecorino was disappointing..too much pasta and a lack of frutti; the secondi of brazini en sale was perfectly prepared, simply presented, and with a slight drizzle of their spectacular olive oil delicious; we had two mixed grills and they were again beautifully prepared and succulent. Paolo suggested a chilled red wine, and both bottles went very well with our orders. Desserts were limited, and two of our initial choices were not available; not to worry...Paolo prepared a tasting selection of five available items and they were delicious. My personal favorite was the pistachio tiramisu.
This is a very acceptable restaurant and dining option; it is not inexpensive, but it was full of a mix of locals, ie family, couples, and pairs of businessmen. Clearly a loyal following, as almost everyone was greeted upon entering as a familiar face. If I lived in the area, I would return, and if you happened to be a businessman at the airport looking to entertain a customer or reward a fellow colleague, this would certainly prove to be a unique alternative to hotel food. For us, it was a wonderful cap to our Italian adventure and one of the five best meals we had in three weeks.

It is a place that remains in your heart for the quality of food mixed in an elegant environment. As two beautiful women welcome you, what surprises me always, is the pleasure to eat the"antipasti" that delights me for the original mixes of tastes ... The pasta is excellent in any way you try it. As for the Fish, it is always a premium quality and delicious.

It is a place where i'd recommend to go if nearby the International Airport of Fiumicino if you are a Italian food lover ...
