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.

Lovely restaurant and nice food. It is close to both colosseum and where we rent. We made reservations at 8:30 pm. Not too much people at that time. Break bread are offered while waiting. We shared seafood sauté had tagliolini with different flavors (crab & clam). We also have some seasoning vegetable. The desserts are beautifully served.

This was the second meal we have had in this restaurant in our week in Rome and dinner like our previous lunch was exceptional.
Oysters are absolutely delicious and super fresh. The crab pasta is definitely the best we had ever tasted.
Staff are attentive and friendly whilst being wholly professional.
In our opinion you can’t do better than Crab if you are a seafood lover.

The best meal we’ve had in Rome. Oysters were super fresh and so good we ordered more! Next was sublime sea bass baked in salt all washed down with a delicious Prosecco. The waiters were delightful and couldn’t have been better. Highly professional and clearly passionate about the food. Decor was clean, bright and modern.
A truly wonderful experience that deserves the highest praise. Definitely recommended as a “must do”!
