Mangiar bene a due passi dal Colosseo? È possibile da Crab, ristorante che fa della qualità del pescato il suo punto di forza. Dopo una passeggiata tra luoghi di straordinario interesse storico si può far tappa in questo locale moderno ed elegante, che propone varie specialità di pesce e crostacei. Una entrata discreta e che non dà molto nell'occhio ci introduce nella sala con arredamento prevalentemente di colore bianco ed altre tonalità tenui, stucco veneziano dorato alle pareti e parquet di rovere chiaro. Molto curata la mise en place, per un risultato finale di piacevole effetto.

La disponibilità del pescato del giorno condiziona la struttura del menu, poiché la freschezza è il vero filo conduttore della cucina. Molto ampia la scelta di ostriche e di altre materie prime di pregio quali la bottarga di muggine, il musciame di tonno e varie tipologie di crostacei. I crudi hanno un ruolo importante nella proposta gastronomica del Crab, che ha inserito in carta anche piatti come la “Tartare battuta al coltello”, lo “Spaghetto pesce bianco lime e pepe rosa”, i “Crostacei al vapore”, i “Gamberoni al Whiskey” ed il “Tiramisù espresso”. Un servizio di sala attento e professionale, senza risultare opprimente, completa una piacevole esperienza culinaria in uno dei luoghi più suggestivi di Roma.

The restaurant was good. It was not crowded as we arrived we were the only guests. Later on other guests arrived. We were disappointed of the food. Because this restaurant has 9 as a number my expectations were very high. But they could not fulfill this expectation. Tunafish wash Ferry salt. And the calimaris had almost no taste. Sorry to say but this is not for me a place to come back again

Having left Rome one year ago, I found Crab with the same pleasure. I would even say it was better than the last ten or so times I have know Crab in the last two years. A great institution worth recommending !

A delicious meal in a elegant and relaxed setting. The wine recommended to us was excellent and fairly priced. I would not hesitate to recommend Crab as long as you are a fish lover. There is no meat on the menu.

The space and service was wonderful. We were welcomed with a glass of prosecco which was a lovely touch. We ordered oysters as an appetiser which was excellent. For our starter we had the crab tagliolini and the octopus gnocchi. Both were average unfortunately but beautifully presented. The wine selection was good and well priced.

A little overrated for what was OK food. Good quality ingredients but not given that extra touch I'd expect at these prices. Really good waiting service but felt ignored by the owner who spent all his time at two tables. A shame as this place has potential to be something special.

This was my last night in Rome and wanted a nice seafood dinner! Crab was an awesome restaurant. Had the hot fish combination appetizers and then octopus was delicious. Then I had the lobster risotto...one of the best I've had. To end the dinner, I had their tiramisu, which was the best during my 2 week stay in Italy! Crab comes highly recommended!!!

Tres joli cadre , bien reçu avec une coupe de champagne mais cher par rapport à la quantité .IL faut rajouter en supplément l'accompagnement avec un plat peu copieux mais bon. Heureusement qu'il y avait la réduction la fourchette .
