This restaurant warrants all the praise it receives. Who I think is the owner is some character. He seems to k ow everyone that walks past and makes you feel like part of the family. The food is delicious. We both had seafood pasta dishes to start, followed by tarbout and monk fish. Cooked to perfection. Can not recommend enough.

Raw fish starters are amazing - fresh, delicate, delicious, full of taste and originality, fantastic combinations... Very good also everything else, but the starters of this quality and diversity are difficult if not impossible to find elsewhere.

So we travelled to Anzio from Rome to meet some friends.
It was all about lunch and my friends new the right place.
They were right......
We were welcomed shown to our table and the main man Walter introduced himself and discussed the food.
The menu was extensive
The wine list endless
My friends had some wine and I settled for a beer.....while we looked at the menu.....
Well we really couldn't decide so Walter suggested we have a bit of everything for starters wise.....
Honestly what happened next was just fantastic.....
Plate after plate of different fish produce in different sauces honestly I couldn't remember it all but there was fish with nuts, in batter, with prawns, in parcel, calamari with a syrup, fried vegetables the list was endless.....
So much so that we were so full we could not manage the main courses.
I must mention the bread I am a fan of bread it was fresh crusty and I could have easily ate a loaf...
So after a small interval Walter suggested the same for dessert.
Another plate with 5 desserts on. Starting with my favourite tiramisu, then a dark chocolate sponge, ice cream, traditional jam tart and finally a white sponge cake.....
Seconds anyone????
Well completely full we finished with coffee and the guys took the digestive spirit......
It was really good, great atmosphere good banter with the waiters but it was really all about the food.

Now my friends tells me this restaurant is right up there when it comes to best voted eaterie......
Rumour has it that it is surpassed by a pizzeria.......

REALLY?????
Your kidding me right???

Next time you visit Anzio
For me only 1 place......

Everything you wrote are lies! You come in at 15,30 and i told you "could be better if you don't order the Rice, Because IN MY RESTAURANT, FOR THE RICE WE TAKE 30 Minutes and NO 1 h and half, you told me that in your "7 restaurant" you precooked the rice and I gently, because I'm a gentleman , I answer you "Yes, right, in Your restaurant, we don't". What you write is really " disgusting shame " in our job one thing is Investiment, one thing is stay in the Kitchen and, for me, you never entering in a Kitchen!!! The people around you laugh a lot for your show, so theatral, but empty as you.

This is my second visit after nearly 2 years I was here for business and not much has changes- still great raw seafood and chef knowing exactly what he is doing!! This place is speciliazed in tapas kind of seafood and you get the best by sampling as an entire table from both raw/ cooked fish. The head waiter( you'll immediately recognise him as he is welcoming everyone warmly) is a character and I recommend you to go with his specials.. Also had the timarisu which was excellent also! This place gets very busy with locals and "logically" they do have some priority - you will get that from the many kisses the regulars get when arriving;) but my point is you have to get there early or might experience some inconveniences in the service as described in other reviews! This place will remain one of my favourite and I cannot recommend it enough for foodies who particularly like raw fish.
