Our residence hotel recommended this place. We were staying a few blocks away.We dined two nights in a row at this restaurant -- not because it was close but because it was so good! As an interior designer, I loved the simple black and white decor. The food is interesting and inventive. The antipasti zucchini wrapped shrimp is the very... More

We dropped in one night passing by and we are so glad we did. As the other reviews state, it is not cheap ($190 for 4 of us for mix of entree, mains, deserts and wine) but value was excellent for the quality. The owner was there and gave us excellent recommendations for food. In fact every 'invention' of his... More

Staying near the Vatican, our hotel recommended this restaurant - an easy 7 minute walk. It is very 'un-Italian' - modern white and chrome. Food was fish/seafood focused but they do serve meat. Very good seafood risotto - the fried seafood was good - owner was very engaged and helpful - a nice experience

Went here on a recommendation from our hotel. A little pricey by normal Roman standards but well worth it. Great seafood.

We had a great meal with excellent service. Not cheap but worth it. The fried calamari with mint leaves is great and the carpaccio of octopus an excellent dish.

LaCaletta is considered fine dining! This place decorated in black and white decor. The food is prepared fresh especially the pasta so you may have to wait awhile but well worth it. We had the pasta with mussel with tomatoes and garlic covered with sprinkles of Parmesian cheese.Very delicious.It is on the $$$ side but you get what you pay... More

We visited twice during our stay in Rome. Both evenings the food was gorgeous, lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. Prices very reasonable for Rome. The restaurant was close to our hotel and not in a touristy area at all.

Another gem of a find, thanks to fellow TripAdvisor reviewers. La Caletta is on the Via Aurelia just behind the Vatican. It doesn't look much from the outside but inside is decorated in a modern white clean-cut style. There is no standard house wine but the boss - the owner I suspect - offers glasses of wine. We had the... More

We had meat and seafood; both were great. The pasta and bread were fresh. Our waiter was attentive without intruding. If the restaurant was closer, I'd be a regular.
