We had dinner at Ambaradan on a nice summer evening, in the enchanting main town's square. I took the pici (home-made pasta similar to spaghetti) with tomatoes, basil and nuts: they were really good and so were the other dishes we had (amberjack carpaccio, local ham&cheese, gnocchi). They have several choices for kids which is a great plus! As dessert... More

Considering the cost, the food is at best average. Although the fresh fish was large enough to share and well prepared, the other items we ordered were disappointing. The seafood soup and even the mixed salad lacked the "freshness" of most of the other food we have experience throughout Italy. I was weary by the mixed reviews on Trip Advisor,... More

There were four of us and we enjoyed a three course dinner. The fish and pasta we enjoyed for main course was average. The fish was a bit too salt and the vongole I have tasted better. The meat and cheese as a starter was good. Friendly staff.

Ordered rotated chicken, how could you go wrong? Besides foul tasting, it looks like chicken pieces were chosen for lack of meat and abundance of bones. Ordered mezzo litro house red wine, so bad didn't drink it. How is this possible in the country and area of vino where you can buy good wine in bulk at a local winery... More

This is a restaurant located on one of the main piazza's in the town. I had a very good meal here. The pasta with zucchini and panchetta was outstanding, as was the cheese with bacon which was put under the grill. You have the option of dining outside, which i highly urge you to do, as it's a really lovely... More

The Restaurant is located on one of Tarquinia's main squares, in front of the Town Hall and adjacent to a beautiful fountain. The food is very good and reasonably priced, the staff very attentive and helpful. I can definitely recommend both the fish and meat options as we were in a group and ordered a variety of items. A good... More

We walked several streets to find a menu that intrigued us. All the others seems just so..so. This little gem in the center of town offered just what we were looking for. Just a notch above for a quiet lunch in front of the Pallazo Communale.

We had walked several kilometers to see the necropolis and were very hungry. The Ambaradam was in a lovely piazza with tables inside and out. The waiter was very helpful. I had a wonderful pasta with octopus, parsley and garlic. My friend had pasta with fungi porcini and loved it. They also made us a beautiful mixed salad with lots... More

Had a walk uphill about a 1kilometer to reach the restaurant. Sat outside, which may have been a mistake on our part. Food and service were average. Inside had more atmosphere
