If you like fish and sea food, friendly staff, and a place where also kids can have good time, go to La Bussola. Wide enough selection of wine by glass, very fresh fish, simply but precisely cooked.
This is not high gastronomy but one does not always need this, true?
A bit far from the city center but worth going there, also thanks to reasonable prices.

生虾拼盘最值得推荐,非常新鲜,重要是吃得放心。龙虾面,我老婆很喜欢。就是一道菜不值:现场挑选冰鲜鱼,按重付钱;性价比不高。
I like the raw shrimp most.

We arrived in Ostia di Lido jet lagged and looking for a place to enjoy an early dinner. The minute we arrived at La Bussola we were treated incredibly, even though we were the only table in the restaurant. After they shared their specials for the evening we said, "just feed us". Our server was amazing and knew just what to do. We just sat back, relaxed and were brought so many delicious antipasti seafood dishes and also pasta and dessert. It was one of the most pleasant and delicious meals we have ever had. By the end of our meal, the restaurant was packed with local families and couples. The next time we are in the Rome area, we will make it a point to return to this gem.

Dinner for two.
Let's start from the conclusion: the bill is 87 EUR. Prices on the bill do not match the menu. Plus we notice an entry for 15 EUR we never ordered and the owner promptly took it off. So now this is 72 EUR.
For what ?
2 antipasti di mare
2 trancio di spigola alla piastra
1 salad
1 grilled zucchini
1 bottle of chardonnay casale del giglio

Quality was mediocre except the wine. Waiters were very kind but stressed. Boss invasive and overlooking continously over the waiters. No wonder they were stressed out.

Far far away from being #1 in the area !
