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 in the evenings, Monday to Saturday, from 17.30 until 23.00, closed on Sunday.
