Family-run and little known, this place is however considered among locals as one of the best seafood destinations in town. Warm and welcoming, like a true Trastevere home, the décor here is cozy and intimate, with soft lighting and a life-size wood-carved tree in the middle of the main dining room. Fish-lovers flock here for trademark spaghetti with sea urchin, a fish-forward amatriciana, and general traditional Roman cuisine with a marine twist. The incredibly fresh catch is sourced in Lazio’s best coastal sea auctions, daily. Besides melt-in-your-mouth calamari, shrimp and tuna, ceviche, carpaccios, and tartares, the grill also provides succulent beefsteaks and other non-fish dishes. Reservations, which are mandatory on the weekend, can also be made online, via the restaurant’s website, which is in Italian only.
