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 normally open Mon-Sat 17.30-23.00.
However its opening hours have recently adapted to Italy's covid-19
restrictions, leading it to open for lunch, from midday, for the first time in more than 40 years, as well as opening on Sundays.
It is best to check its Facebook page
for updated times before going.
