Great mussels

I have been to this restaurant 3 times and each time the food has been great. The staff are so very friendly and helpful, there is beautiful views from the restaurant. It can get very busy at lunch time which is a very good sign. Very good value with a smile.

The restaurant is located very close to the train station of Civitavecchia and it has a nice terrace overlooking the beach. The food is excellent, the portions are quite big. When I was there I ordered mussels for starters and pasta with lobster as a main course which was my favorite. For the dessert the host came with a cart... More

When anyone is in Civiteveccia either before or after a cruise Alta Marea is an absolute must for fresh seafood. The place is adorable. Ding is casual and the prices are extremely reasonable. The staff was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The fried baby octopus and the mussels and clams sautée are amazing. Large plump mussels in a delicious... More

Had a wonderful dinner with friends the night before leaving on a cruise. The three seafood appetizer was terrific as was the octopus. For the main course the both gnocchi and ravioli were outstanding. Staff was very helpful in picking out the "right" Italian wine. Very reasonably priced. Nice setting right next to the water. Highly recommended.

We had a short stop from our Costa Cruise and just walked around the city. When we found this amazing seafood place right at the shore. Amazing sea-food, house made pasta and very friendly staff. Hope to come back one day.

The food was alright but the service was quite bad. It all went over the top when the server sat down on the other table drinking wine with their guests, this was very unprofessional.

On a balmy Friday evening, bathed in golden light, I had a truly satisfying supper at this family owned establishment. After a well prepared house salad, I enjoyed an outstanding risotto with varied seafood accompanied by a good red wine, concluding with a luscious tartuffo in a pool of espresso. The addition was very reasonable. I would certainly come back.

We had a wonderful meal just before embarking our cruise ship. Highly recommend the grilled prawns. Everything we had was good. Perfect pasta.

Alta Marea is set back from the main beach front and was fairly empty on a Friday evening when many of the other restaurants were busy. It's fairly modestly designed but has views of the water. The waiters didn't speak English, although I believe the host did. They were very efficient. The pastas were OK but had a little less... More
