A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

Los pescados y mariscos de calidad sublime y sus raíces italianas son los dos sellos de Assunta Madre. Su alma máter es Giovanni Micalusi, más conocido como Johnny, un pescador italiano que decidió abrir un restaurante en Roma -también llamado Assunta Madre- y arrasó, especialmente entre los famosos. Por sus mesas han pasado y disfrutado Robert De Niro o Silvester Stallone. Su posterior etapa fue la internacionalización y tras Milán y Londres, le tocó el turno a la Ciudad Condal.

Con una ubicación inmejorable frente a La Pedrera y un interiorismo clásico con ladrillos vistos y maderas nobles, una mesa con el pescado expuesto da la bienvenida al comensal. Aquí pagas por el mejor producto y por eso en la cocina se trabaja por servirlo en todo su esplendor: en su punto justo de cocción y sin florituras añadidas. No podían faltar en la carta pastas y risottos.


Dan ganas de pedirlo todo: ostras, cigalas, tartar, gnocchetti con gamba roja, bogavante... Un festival marinero para darse todo un señor homenaje.

    The food and service was outstanding. We had the barbecued calamari with an avocado, risotto for two, a bottle of red, and coffees. Oh, and dessert! All excellent.

    Clean artichokes better. We were sharing appetizers for three and they should have offered to provide three artichokes - would have been willing to pay extra. Seafood was fabulous. Pasta very good.

    The food was alright however it was not special. The waiter forget our starter, he spilled the wine and drop the bread twice... Then the desserts came really late. Not recommended!

    Portions are gigantic. The cuisine tended to be heavy. That was a bad combination. The spaghetti with clams and salad were the only dishes that were exceptions to this criticism. Stick to dishes that are as minimal as possible until they get a new chef.

    Just too many things went wrong. The starter wasn't the quality expected. We ordered the same main dish, but on 1 plate clearly some ingredients were missing. After our complaint these ingredients were brought separately. The extra ordered potato's were brought later. With the apologise we received some drinks to accompony our desserts. A really nice gesture, but that is not why you are going out to eat.

    Lovely restaurant and the food was very nice. Had the fish soup and the pasta with seafood. The wine we wanted was not available and the manager recommended another wine which was cheaper. It was really wonderful and appreciated that he didn’t try and upsell us. He noted that if we didn’t like it, he would pull another wine. I would rate the entire experience a 9 out of 10. Some reviews talked about how expensive it was but we didn’t feel that. We liked the fact that they had fresh fish displayed. Overall, a lovely experience.

    Overall, very disappointing. Great location and nice Italian atmosphere. Serving bread was hard and cold. The food dishes took forever to arrive despite the fact that there were only 5 tables dining at the time. When the dishes finally arrived, they were room temperature and unseasoned. For the amount of money you pay at a place like this , this was very disappointing. Would not go here again.

    Cant comprehend the good reviews! Respect rip-off. High prices (Soup etc. starts at 20 EUR) medium quality very low untrained service. Raw vegetables, dry Tuna. Not professionell. In addition owner wanted to cheat on us. We ordered bottle of wine for 28 EUR on bill 75 EUR. After the complaint we were very personally berated. Berated us as German. Got the right bill at the end.
