After 3 days of eating meals across Rome, the food has always been good, but the atmosphere and the service has often been hit or miss. Not with La Caletta. We were made to feel incredibly welcome. We had one diner with gluten-free requirements, and this was handled comfortably and confidently. All the waiting staff were patient, helpful and made us feel welcome. Put simply we were first in (at 730) and last out (at 11PM) and had a lovely evening. Our thanks to all the staff who prepared and served our food

It’s a very good experience to having lunch in La Caletta.

Excellent food, great service with reasonable price.

All seafood were fresh and delicious.

I recommended the raw fish, raw prawn, fried Octopus and seafood noodle.

在這裏吃午餐真是沒選擇錯。
所有海鮮也很新鮮,生魚、生蝦均很好吃。還有燒的八爪魚做得很不錯。還有就是海鮮麵,鮮甜得不得了、不可不叫。甜品也是不錯,就是很滑也新鮮。
服務很好、價錢合理、食物水準一流!

While just over a block from Saint Peter's Basilica, La Caletta is completely off the beaten tourist track, being on the "wrong side" of the Vatican. Moreover, you could easily walk right by it without a second thought, but this would be a grave mistake--if you love seafood.

Rome has several excellent upscale seafood restaurants but few as understated, reasonably priced, and simply delicious as La Caletta. The fact that it is so easy to overlook also has preserved La Caletta from taking on any semblance of a tourist vibe. Mostly locals eat there, and people in the know.

It isn't just that this restaurant, under the watchful eye of its amiable proprietor Alessandro Gullotto, serves up a great meal with style. It also offers funky innovations (without going overboard) that give it a distinctive character.

A case in point is La Caletta's emblematic fresh oyster pairing with its signature gin and tonic. The oysters are served raw on the half shell and the G&T comes in a big-bowled wine glass with colorful fruit garnishes. The waiter will also provide you with an optional gin spray to complement your oysters, which can be used in place of the usual lemon squeeze.

The prices are remarkably reasonable (I disagree with the $$$$ rating), which is virtually unseen on the Rome seafood circuit. As an example, a glass of La Caletta's truly delicious house champagne--from a smaller producer rather than a major champagne house--costs just €12, despite the fact that the pour is as generous as any I have ever seen.

Oh, the shrimp zucchini rolls are so delicious you will want to weep.
