We had a good meal here prior to touring Ostia Antica. Walked from train station. Pasta dishes all very good and homemade bread a big hit. It was full of locals and did not feel at all touristy. Only took Master Card or cash.

A lovely meal for a family night out. The food was well cooked and tasty, the service friendly, and the the wine enjoyable. The other customers all appeared to be families, and all having a good time.

We ate here, staying at a nearby hotel, our last night in Italy. We ate indoors, and had the pleasure of speaking Italian to the owner, a friendly signora. We had a large salad, fresh bread, a small bottle of wine, acqua frizzante, and 2 large delicious pasta dishes. We first ate here 7 years ago, and if we return... More

After an unplanned stop at the beautiful Castello di Ostia following our visit to Ostia Antica, the port of ancient Rome, we happened upon this wonderful little restaurante in the shadows of the castle. We sat in the courtyard and had a wonderful homecooked meal. The bread was partcularly good . . . actually warm when it was served. The... More

We had a lovely dinner in their courtyard (interior rooms were also charming). The seafood appetizer was outstanding, also enjoyed their artichoke lasagna and salads. The owner was very friendly and brought some extras (fried veggies) to our table. The food and service were excellent, prices very reasonable. Definitely one of the best meals we had during our two week... More

We ate at Piazza Ravenna with our son and his wife during our recent stay in Ostia Antica. It looked like a small bar from the entrance but downstairs was a cozy dining room. The food, wine and service were impeccable - a delicious mixed seafood appetizer, pasta con vongole e porcini mushrooms and excellent grilled fish followed by melt-in-your... More

After almost three weeks in various parts of Italy, we spent our last night close to Fiumincino airport. While visiting in the town of Ostia Antica we stumbled upon Risterante - Bistrot Piazza Ravenna. This small but cozy restaurant proved to be one of the best we have ever eaten at in many visits to Italy. The owners and hosts... More

Small resto with fairly limited menu. Average food prices. Cheap for wine which was OK. Run by an older couple. Friendly and functional. I would certainly eat there again.

My wife and I are currently living in Rome for employment for a few years. We took the metro/train from Rome to Ostia Antica and after spending a few hours looking at the Ruins we wandered to the small town near the castle and dropped in to this restaurant looking for lunch at about 2:50PM on a Saturday. When you... More
