It has been a favorite of locals and tourists alike for generations, attracting everyone from working-class Romans to famous actors and politicians. In addition to the famous filetti di baccalà, the menu at Dar Filettaro a Santa Barbara also features other classic Roman dishes such as spaghetti alla carbonara, saltimbocca alla romana, and trippa alla romana. The restaurant is also known for its house wine, served in ceramic jugs. Visiting Dar Filettaro a Santa Barbara is a unique and authentic culinary experience that captures the essence of Rome's rich cultural and culinary heritage."
"Only open in the evenings, this small hole in the wall ‘restaurant’ specialises in Baccalà (cod). Their filetto di Baccalà is a delicious piece of cod, battered and fried to perfection. You can also order a puntarelle salad if in season (usually the colder months of the year), and the rest of the year you can have a gallinella (another variety of lettuce) with the same anchovy dressing as the classic puntarelle salad. Draft wine and beer available. Your an either ask to be seated or walk straight up to the kitchen and have them wrap up a piece of cod for you to take away"

"Ci sarà un motivo se da molti e' considerato il più buono di Roma no? Ragazzi miei non si può passare per Via dei giubbonari senza venire dar Filettaro a Santa Barbara. Non sono filetti di Baccalà fritti ma icone di Roma e della sua tradizione culinaria. Leggero, caldo e salato al punto giusto. La pastella e' così soffice, che se non fosse per il crunch che accompagna ogni morso, sembrerebbe di dare un morso ad una nuvola. - Dar Filettaro a Santa Barbara - 📍 Largo dei Librari 88 "
