The best "Linguine alle Vongole"

What an amazing restaurant! I'm Italian and I'm coming from a sea place with very good restaurants and fresh fish but I can tell you, if you want to have fresh fish cocked to perfection then you must come here! The pasta is unbelievable! May be one of the best linguine alle vongole I ever had! The... read more

We had an excellent seafood dinner at Alta Marea, a family run restaurant near the water in Civitavecchia. The fish was fresh, the service was terrific there was no pretense, just good food in a lovely environment at the end of the beachfront promenade.

This dinner wasn't planned. We strolled the boardwalk in Civitavechia and chose it because it 'felt' good! Well it was delicious. A family owned and operated restaurant with mama papa and children all working to ensure we enjoyed the meal represented by an excellent menu and wine list. And of course the food, mainly seafood, was excellent. For our party... More

Really surprised for the level of Italian Cuisine despite its touristic location as it rests in front of the Sea in the area where most if not all cruise liners dock when in town. Tip: stop by the local market, as early as you can, pick your favorite or most appealing seafood available and take it to Alta Marea and... More

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.
