Located on the main tourist drag along Via Rinascimento near Piazza Navona, the restaurant at first glance seems like a tourist trap. It may be, but I was happy with what I ordered - fettuccini with lobster and baked sea bass. The "lobster" in the pasta turned out to be a half lobster, fresh (I saw the cook remove the live lobster from a tank), succulent, sweetish with a touch of spiciness. The sea bass, was average, but fresh, the delicate meat well-seasoned, but not overpowering. For dessert, the chocolate mousse was heavenly. All in all, a lovely meal.
