Filetti di baccalà: Rome's deep-fried cod fillets

Rome has a restaurant dedicated entirely to the popular Roman speciality.

Salted, battered and deep-fried, the filetto di baccalà is a much-loved Roman speciality, popular as an antipasto before pizza, or as a substantial street food snack.

Rome even has a hole-in-the-wall style restaurant dedicated entirely to the deep-fried cod dish which has Roman Jewish origins.

Located in Largo dei Librari, a tiny piazza near Campo de' Fiori, Dar Filettaro a S. Barbara can be identified by the unambiguous 'Filetti di Baccalà' sign over its door.

Something of an institution in Rome, Dar Filettaro is open Mon-Sat 17.30-23.00.
