La Rosetta
via della Rosetta, 8, Rome; Tel.: 06-6861002
This is one of Rome's best-regarded seafood restaurants; the Riccioli family has been directing operations here since the mid-1960s. Menu items include just about every fish native to the Mediterranean, as well as a few from the Atlantic coast of France. There's even a sampling of lobster imported from Maine, which can be boiled with drawn butter or served Catalan style with tomatoes, red onions and wine sauce. The homemade spaghetti garnished with shrimp, pumpkin blossoms and pecorino cheese is a real standout.
