Great place for seafood! I eat very well and I strongly recommend this place. I particularly enjoyed the "tagliata di tonno". It's not cheap, but the price is OK and the quality excellent

We had a good dinner, food was fine and the setting pleasant. It was actually the second time we went to this restaurant, the first visit also left positive results. But the service involved an attitude issue. The waiters had something of a know-all attitude...More

Outstanding seafood, pleasant ambiance, pleasant service in a convenient location next to the Roman Theater. Spoken Italian helps. Adequate wine list. Good value.

We happened upon this cute place from the Trip Advisor app- it was tucked away. All the staff was incredibly accomodating to English speakers. The Carpacci, Busara spaghetti, and Grigliata Mista were excellent. Very good house wine.

Description
A due passi da Piazza Unità d’Italia, l’Hostaria Malcanton è un ristorantino di pesce, semplice e accogliente. Rosso alle pareti, sedie di legno, fotografie di barche, jazz nell’aria e due ampie sale interne, con una zona dedicata agli aperitivi, sono pronte ad ospitarvi. Un sacco di lavagne spiegano piatti, menù e vini e, se non bastasse, i camerieri e i titolari sono sempre pronti a guidarvi nella scelta. Il menù è quello tipico delle località di mare ma con qualche piccolo accorgimento in più: il pescato del giorno è infatti esposto in bella mostra in una vetrina refrigerata in sala, vicino alle vetrate d’ingresso , a garanzia di freschezza e qualità del prodotto. Lo chef, sa esaltare le materie prime con l’efficacia della sua esperienza, curando antipasti di pesce crudo, tartare e carpacci, oppure caldi come i gratinati con pangrattato pomodori e zucchine. Si passa poi alla pasta con le vongole rivisitata, con il porro croccante, la busara di scampi e gamberi o il risotto alla pescatora, la specialità del cuoco. Il secondo, come già accennato, lo scegliete voi dall’ampio carrello del pescato del giorno, da saltare poi ai ferri o in forno. I dolci sono fatti in casa: da segnalare la piccola pasticceria di cioccolato con la frutta fresca. Un ampia scelta di vini locali, strizzando l’occhio anche al resto dell’Italia e alla Francia, completa il tutto: lasciandovi guidare dai titolari, potrete avere anche la possibilità di comporre un menù degustazione, associando ad ogni pietanza il vino più adatto. Hostaria Malcanton: un ristoro tranquillo a un passo da piazza Unità.
