Which Italian Restaurant Serves a Whole Fish Baked in a Salt Crust?

Can't remember which restaurant does this, was it Il Pastaio? Hope someone can steer me to the correct place. Should have wrote it down earlier, now I can't recall the name. Thanks.

      That's it, thanks! Whole branzino, also their porchetta. I've added it to my list so have no excuse now.

    2. FWIW Zucca does it as well.

      1. I.Cugini in Santa Monica will roast a whole fish in rock salt. I think they are owned by the same group that owns the Water Grill downtown. I've had their whole dover sole, my personal favorite, which was quite good.
