Da sempre a Roma la cucina di pesce è associata al litorale. “Andare a mangiare il pesce” è una espressione che implica una passeggiata fino ad Ostia o Fregene, senza dimenticare altre zone limitrofe. Per questo motivo i ristoranti situati all’interno della capitale e delle zone centrali, che propongono una cucina di pesce, divengono rapidamente il riferimento di appassionati ed addetti ai lavori, soprattutto quando ci si trova dinanzi a materie prime di qualità, un servizio professionale ed un ambiente elegante ed accogliente allo stesso tempo. Tutto questo si può trovare da Sandalia, locale situato in zona Nomentana, non distante da Villa Ada. Il bianco quale colore dominante, grandi specchi a rendere fine l’ambiente, tende e finiture alle pareti a ribadire la ricerca del gusto, comode sedute e curata mise en place per esplicare la filosofia del ristorante e di chi lo gestisce con cura e professionalità.

Un nome storico e simbolico (Sandalia, la moderna Sardegna) che richiama l’importanza del mare e dei suoi doni. Da materie prime di provenienza certa e certificata, che quotidianamente giungono nelle cucine del ristorante, nasce una cucina elegante, delicata, bella da vedere e saporita da mangiare. Il pesce fresco a recitare il ruolo da protagonista, piatti come il “Carpaccio di tonno allo zenzero, lime e mela verde croccante” e i “Paccheri con tonno, asparagi e pachino” a ribadire la filosofia della chef Vitalia Scano. “Ombrina timo e limone” e “Astice alla catalana” gli altri cavalli di battaglia di una proposta che naturalmente comprende dolci tipici come le “Seadas” ed il “Tiramisù Sandalia”.

    Went there on a Sunday due to good reviews. We were the only ones, and the crew was having dinner in the restaurant when we arrived. The service was very good though, we got a lot of stuff complimentary. However the food was decent, nothing extraordinary, and the wine list was really disappointing, 3-4 regions and 2-4 wines from each.

    We were disappointed with the quality of products and cooking. The fish that was served(trilia) smelled bad, risotto with shrimps had only shrimp heads, scorpion fish was tasteless, mussels stew was generally OK, but missed garlic in it. Also there was a spiny lobster on the menu, which we wanted to order but changed our mind, when they showed it to us because it was an ordinary Maine lobster. The only good impression - oysters, very thin bread(similar to toasted tortillas, but much thinner) they serve gratis before meal, and collection of free cookies at the end. They did not charge us for the entrees we couldn't eat. We could not understand how this restaurant located far away from the Rome center and has nothing to offer in the sense of view or decor , with very mediocre food, got such raving reviews. Maybe, their chef was away on vacation.

    Excellent food in a great ambiance. Very attentive staff. Fish and shellfish so fresh. This restaurant was recommended to us from friends in London and it did not disappoint.

    Great restaurant, mainly fish work limited other choices. We had a meat starter and a fish main.... Really excellent. This was quite a distance from where we were staying in the very centre but definitely worth the journey. A very very good meal

    This was a lovely restaurant and the service was friendly and very efficient. The food was first class with the only complaint being that although my partners fillet steak was perfectly cooked it was a bit fatty. I had fish all the way and it was excellent. I would definitely return.

    Went here for dinner last night based on the Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The restaurant was not overly busy and I believe we were the only tourists as it’s a little far out from centre, but worth the trip (about €15 in a taxi). Everything we ate was exquisite and the service was impeccable. Nothing was too much trouble, a truly 5* service which is rare these days. A real hidden gem, would not hesitate to recommend.

    Lovely restaurant and excellent service - when one dish was not as one of our guests expected it was replaced without fuss! Worth the drive out of the centre.
