Time Out says
On a particularly pretty alley in San Polo, a crowded, slightly chaotic dining room offers refined seafood dishes and homey atmosphere.
There’s not a surface in Antiche Carampane that’s not covered by something—wine bottles, old photos, plaques touting the restaurants many accolades. Diners are elbow-to-elbow in this packed eatery, awaiting artfully plated seafood entrees that come out of a tiny, adept kitchen. This family run eatery is proud of its cooking and menu prices reflect that, though the wine list has several decently priced bottles. We think the lively dining room is half the reason to come here but if you want a little more breathing room, try to grab an outside table.
Time Out tip: Fresh fish or seafood sold by weight can result in some real sticker shock on your final tab. For anything sold by etto (100 grams), make sure your waiter specifies how much your serving will cost before you confirm your order.
