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

Un ristorante particolarmente indicato per chi vuol mangiare pesce, crostacei e cruditè, il tutto con ispirazione sarda: il Sa Tanca Crostaceria, sito in via Palermo, in una zona attigua a via Nazionale, è caratterizzato da un ambiente davvero particolare, a tratti sfarzoso, contraddistinto dalle sedie color oro, le luci soffuse, i tappeti, i quadri in stile fiammingo, una serie di elementi che crea un’atmosfera lussuosa ma non fastidiosa. Attento, disponibile e cortese, il personale di sala è uno dei punti di forza del locale, assieme all'offerta presente nel menu.

Una buona scelta di tartare, una vasta scelta di crudi a prezzi interessanti (cannolicchi, fasolari, mandorle, ostriche, gamberi rossi) oltre naturalmente a primi e secondi piatti e gli immancabili dessert. Un ristorante di pesce che fa perno sulla tecnica degli chef di cucina e sulla qualità delle materie prime per preparare piatti come il “Polpo con arancio e olive taggiasche”, i “Tagliolini con crostacei”, il “Rombo alla vernaccia con olive” ed i “Ravioli di ananas con mousse di mandorle”. Curata ed interessante la carta dei vini, con menzione per la buona scelta di Vermentini. Un locale da provare, con prodotti di alto livello e prezzi coerenti con l’offerta culinaria e la posizione nel centro di Roma.

    Disappointing is the word that comes to mind first. The location next to Via Nazionale (full city center) had me captured in a feeling of elation and anticipation, especially seeing all the high scores from the foreigners who visited the place. Here’s the story: it is Good Friday, just before Easter, and my wife and I want to treat us according to our belief, without eating meat, this is why I use The Fork to find a seafood place instead. Entering the place is already an experience: the atmosphere is heavy, the walls all covered in Pompeian red and the light is dull and faint so they immediately light a candle at our table. The place is almost desert when we arrive at 8:20 pm and we are welcomed by a glory of waiters that are all in all very well mannered, if anything a tad too obsequious. So many waiters (no woman except the owner) clash with a rather empty ambiance. We notice it and the atmosphere is not great, but we are there for the food and enthusiastically go through the menu; a very long list of items that are difficult to really combine in a uniform offering although it is all fish and seafood indeed. We go for the petit plateau a mix of raw fish starters to share (40€) a ‘tempura’ of shrimps and veggies and then spaghetti con le vongole for my wife and the very Sardinian ‘fregola’ that I love, with lobster, and a glass of wine. The raw fish arrives super fast served on a very ample metal course dish, full of ice, fruit and in between some ‘crudité’. The raw shrimps and the scampi were very good, but the rest (canocchie, fasolari, noci di mare) was honestly not and further to the taste some of them were so covered in ice that they were almost frozen: not a good experience and a very expensive fruit salad. At any rate let’s get on... we are finished in 15 minutes and just after 5 minutes the bring in the rest of our order... fast; too fast. My fregola with lobster is a joke: despite the fregola itself being cooked well, that’s pretty much the only good thing I can say about that: half a lobster (cooked when? It was all rubbery and bland) just covered in a ridiculously small quantity of fregola, which was bland itself and not a joy to eat (at 25€ a plate I’m rather disappointed). Then the easiest thing in the world: spaghetti con le vongole; come on, they couldn’t possibly have made this wrong... right?! Wrong!! Not only were they bland, but super dry and a tad over cooked. It almost felt like all that food was prepared hastily, with several parts of it revived from previous cooking. At this point, my wife and I don’t feel anymore like spending any more of our hard earned money there and simply offer an espresso to close the disappointment and get out. In summary: food experience was very poor, in a gloomy and dim atmosphere. Food should be life and joy; this place just isn’t. Regrettably, i then understand an adage that I should have listened to this time as well: restaurants in the city center are (if not all, very many of them) a tourist trap. People feel so inebriated by the rich Pompeian red tapestry, the candle light and the fact that they are in Rome, that they simply overlook how good the food is and its quality, especially when they get so easily distracted by other things (ie the old fashioned ambiance and the obsequiously mannered service). We then went on to eat a dessert on a nice place on via Nazionale itself. THAT was good.

    We took the tasting menu for 2. The food was wonderful. The tasting menu includes 4 starters for 2 people, a first course for each, a main course for each, and a dessert for each, as well as a bottle of wine and a bottle of water. The dishes were all excellent and we really enjoyed them. The cost was 90€.

    Some dishes really good, some not (a fish restaurant should not serve dry overcooked fish). Just bringing and taking away dishes is not good enough. Good service takes better care of their guests.
