Trattoria alla Madonna

Lonely Planet review

A classic restaurant a stone’s throw from the Pescaria, with diners packed in like anchovies, waiters in white jackets and black tie expertly navigating narrow channels between tables, and a menu that hasn’t changed much since the restaurant opened in 1954. Traditional seafood offerings range from straightforward grilled fish through seasonal specialities like capelonghe (razor clams) in a white wine broth to the more obscure uova di seppia (cuttlefish eggs) which tastes like sturgeon caviar.
