The food is amazing but the service level is slow and lacks of courtesy. Too bad this place is a great stop but needs a great improvement on the service

Pasta con sarde was good, but fish soup disappointing... Long time to get the food... The house wine was fair. Waiters grumpy.

Really fair price for a primo piato and a bottle of wine of the house. It taste delicious and also the location is great, near to the Pontile di Ostia.

Great atmosphere by the sea and the food was so fresh! I tried sardines for the first time and they were awesome! Everything we ordered was great and at a great price!

Really good simple Italian fish cookery. No frills but excellent local ingredients. And the white wine recommended by the staff was very good too.

Nice little place. We had an early lunch outside on the patio. Sardines rolled with breadcrumbs and cheese were especially good. Great location to catch a bite, and you can feel superior to the people eating at McDonald’s next door.

We have been very happy with this restaurant, their dishes are tasty and they look quite original. It is a level above many places in Ostia. We recommend to try many dishes and share them.

I suggest Pasta con sarde, a revisited sicilian dish, very delicate and elegant. Anelli with pesce fresco, a delicious sauce tomato based. The frittatina di seppie was to die for, best was a little... More

Surprisingly fast, friendly, helpful service--not always a given in Italy (though perhaps the fact that we came there off-season helped). The menu wasn't just the same old same old. The fish was fresh and good with an interesting mixture of flavors. The place is not really on the sea--it's on a fairly busy street that borders the sea and is... More
