A busy atmospheric restaurant high up on the waterfront promenade. Your host Maximillian, is quite a character (some might say eccentric?) and he and his Romanian family run the place well. Heavenly pizzas, great decor, comfortable sheltered outdoor seating; lovely for watching the sunsets of Lazio go down ... along with a half litre or more of local wine. Bellissimo!

A day ashore wandering about Civitavecchia led us to La Ghiacciaia. A very pleasant location and atmosphere for lunch and a chance to catch up on emails and the news. We really liked the carafe of white wine that had a bit of bubbly. A pleasant and generous couvert was followed by a great pizza (quattro stagioni). We'll be back!

We stumbled upon the restaurant while touring the town, and were drawn to the free Wi-Fi signs. We ordered lunch and drinks and updated our email. The Wi-Fi was slow! The bruschetta was as good as any I've had and the sea food salad the second best I've ever tasted. The view of the harbor was a real photo op.... More

I was on my way to Sardinia and had an overnight in Civitavecchia to catch the ferry, I went to La Ghiacciaia for dinner, it was a lovely warm evening and the restaurant location is perfect, overlooking the harbour, I looked at the dishes coming out to the tables before sitting down and the food did not look that bad....

This restaurant is in a lovely situation overlooking the port. I felt very content sitting outside sipping a glass of wine on a sunny afternoon until the food arrived. I had ordered the "carne menu touristica" at 18e and did not expect much but they did not even reach those. I had to fight the first course of lasagne as... More

Cruising the Med we stumbled across this amazing restaurant situated on the seafront in Civitavecchia. This couple sure know how to run a business. Maximillano is a true gentleman and his life is enriching. He's an 80's guy just loving his lady and business. Barry White overtones whilst looking out to sea along with the greatest pizza and pasta we... More
