Excellent spot couple blocks from Vatican Museum entrance. Spaghetti with clams (rockets and cherry tomatoes) and spaghetti with mussels (chick pea and pecorino) were exceptional. Second course tuna, swordfish were noteworthy as well. Highly recommend.

Came in here because we walked past it on the way to our hotel. Lovely fish specialities, cute decor. Service was quite brusque but not unfriendly. Would recommend it if you're near the Vatican.
