Spaghetti alle vongole | Piatto Ristorante Miranda Fiumicino

Welcome to Miranda

Authentic Seafood cuisine in Fiumicino.

Looking to savor the true essence of seafood cuisine?

Greetings, I’m Massi, and I’m thrilled to introduce you to Miranda’s Restaurant: a haven for seafood aficionados who appreciate hearty, authentic, and bountiful meals, located merely a pebble’s throw from the sea’s shore.

Our seafood specialities are rooted in ‘Grandma Miranda’s recipe book,’ a treasured inheritance that has been preserved and passed down through generations with love.

I am dedicated to continuing her culinary vision: no pretentious blends, micro-portions, or menus filled with baffling buzzwords.

Only the freshest, most genuine ingredients are selected for our mouth-watering and satisfying dishes, made just as Nonna would have prepared them.

A Menu Echoing the Culinary Heritage from Grandma Miranda's Recipe Book

Grandma Miranda’s Recipe Journal holds an immeasurable place in my heart. It’s where I learned to master the art of cooking, uncovering both subtle and profound secrets that made Grandma uniquely remarkable. Like her meticulous attention to fresh pasta, the craft of egg noodles, and her charming encouragement: ‘Come on, add another yolk to it!’ It’s through these treasured pages that I discovered the true flavor of Chowder. Not the monochromatic, supermarket variety, but rather, an explosion of aromas, hues, and tastes that Grandma Miranda summoned to the table every time.


Fresh ingredients and good, carefully chosen coastal fish

Countless are the times I accompanied my grandmother to purchase fish straight off the pier, directly from the hands of local fishermen. Navigating through a sea of a hundred varieties, discerning the day’s catch from ‘the bottom of the pile.’ Even today, we continue to work with our trusted fishing vessels; passionate fisherfolk who daily deliver the essence of the sea to Miranda’s doorstep. 

An ambiance reminiscent of home, cosy and joy-filled just like the carefree days of our childhood.

When I reflect on Grandma Miranda, I’m transported back to family meals of yesteryears. I reminisce about dishes no longer common on today’s tables, like the hearty fish soup or the unique seafood parmigiana. I recall a time that was slower, simpler, filled with laughter and warmth. A nostalgic reminiscence of my childhood days. 

Cuisine and Menu

Grandma Miranda was a wise soul when she professed: “One cannot think, love, or sleep well, without dining well first!”

And we are here to demonstrate her wisdom!

Our cuisine is a vibrant testament to our passion and love for the bounty of our coastal waters. Each dish is a time capsule, transporting you back to the cherished flavors of yesteryears. It’s a journey that takes you back to the comfort of home, to a place brimming with the most delightful memories from your childhood.

Every day, we meticulously prepare fresh pasta and homemade desserts, keeping alive the traditions of the old days.
Grandma Miranda instilled in us: it’s the details that make all the difference!
And that’s precisely why you’ll find our live aquarium taking center stage in the dining room, an ever-present testament to the freshness of our ingredients.

Are you equipped to cook gluten-free?

Generally speaking, YES, we meticulously prepare gluten-free dishes and also offer gluten-free bread, breadsticks, and desserts. However, as we frequently use gluten-containing ingredients, there can be a risk of cross-contamination in our kitchen, particularly during busy times with a high volume of orders.

Thus, to ensure maximum safety, we recommend avoiding reservations on days when we anticipate a large influx of customers, such as weekends.

Do you cater to vegetarian diets?

While we do not feature a dedicated vegetarian menu, our offerings do not lack options for vegetarian palates, such as our Eggplant Parmigiana or the renowned Ravioli filled with Aubergine and Smoked Scamorza cheese.

For our vegan guests, we provide a selection from our side dishes, including Seasonal Mixed Salad, special Leonessa Baked Potatoes, French Fries, Sautéed Chicory, and a medley of Grilled Vegetables.

The Story

Our story began more than 60 years ago, with Grandma Miranda and a little scratch kiosk on the seafront. Since then, the seed has sprouted: from kiosk, to ‘fraschetta’, then trattoria and finally today’s restaurant.

Here at Miranda’s, I, Massi, alongside our long-standing team, carry on the adventure, upholding the values of authentic seafood cuisine with the same fervor and commitment as Grandma herself.

How do I safeguard these values that are dear to me? I’ve chosen to forsake any ‘fusion’, sophisticated or ‘trendy’ cooking style. I’ve parted ways with micro-portions, odd combinations, and menus filled with perplexing jargon.

Our mission is to revive the genuine seafood cuisine of the past, guided by Grandma’s wisdom: where the fresh catch reigns supreme, and Grandma is our queen!
