On the trail of typical Roman cuisine, Filetti di Baccala will tick a couple essential boxes: baccala or fried salt cod, and, in season, puntarelle, the spring green served with an anchovy sauce - trust us, it's great. Filetti di Baccala also ticks that other time-honored Italian box of "si mangia bene e si spende poco" (you eat well and spend little).Recommended for:

This is a casual Roman place, open only at night, that specializes in Baccala, the salty, fried cod typical of central Italy. You can also order puntarelle in season (a delicious green served with an anchovy sauce) and other fried Roman treats like fiori di zucca and suppli. There are no frills here. You eat at a table with a paper tablecloth and the service is brusque. When we ordered coffee, the waiter yelled across the piazza in his best macho boom, "Gino! Quattro!" - Filetti di Baccala' doesn't have their own macchina di caffe, so they have a deal with Gino at the bar next door. Love it.Recommended for:

The small restaurant specializes in cod (baccalà), a specialty of the region. Head to the back and order a filet of fried cod for 4,50 euro to take away (it is 5 euro if you want a table). Very tasty. The frying method they use gives the fish a light taste. Highly recommend if you are in the area.Recommended for:
