Content: First things first: we had lunch in the famous Pescaria. Three friends started the concept of (raw) seafood fast food here and it became a must thereafter. Now they have around 10 restaurant all over Italy and that’s one of my favourite places to eat. We had mixed fried seafood, their famous “cacio, pepe e cozze” and a sandwich with raw shrimp tartare, carrot chips, pistachios and stracciatella passion fruit flavoured. Amazing!
