Restaurant description

Ask any gourmet enthusiast for the name of the most famed fish restaurant in Rome, and the answer will be “La Rosetta”. Established in 1966, La Rosetta is in fact the leading fish-only restaurant right in the heart of Rome’s historical centre, just a few steps away from the Pantheon and close to Piazza Navona. Patron-chef and owner, Massimo Riccioli, asserts, “there is no great cuisine without great ingredients”. And by ensuring that fish and oysters are outstandingly fresh, alive, and of the most exceptional and certified qualities, this tradition is reaffirmed day after day. To experience the recipes created by Massimo Riccioli is to experience ingredients turned into the most enticing and imaginative propositions, by way of audacious combinations that yet do not neglect traditional and familiar flavors.

Food source

The restaurant’s most devout clients are the fish. Deliveries are made twice a day, in the morning and right before the evening meal. All products are selected one by one, examined and bought daily at the fish auctions in the fish markets on the Latium coast. The renowned fame of the restaurant, due to the excellence of its products, is reconfirmed at every tasting. All the shellfish, octopuses, oysters that go through the hands of Massimo Riccioli and his staff acquire those scents and hints of flavors that fall into the most consolidated tradition of taste, while concurrently acquiring some surprising and unexpected variations to delight the most exacting palates.

Executive chef experience and qualifications

If the reputation and the recognition of the eclectic talent of Massimo Riccioli did not speak for themselves, in order to describe him it would be simply necessary to talk about his love for gastronomy. Every single dish of his has a unique and passionate character, just like a successful work of art. Since he was a young child, Massimo saw his parents, Carmelo Riccioli and Romana Coltella, devote themselves with curiosity, mastery and skill to the art of fish gastronomy, and he learnt from them some precious knowledge. Culinary art, a family heritage, has always been part of Massimo’s life, until he became a master himself.
