Enjoyed this stop on our visit to Lido di Ostia. Had the Mussels soup and the gnocchi with tomato and cheese sauce. Food was excellent and our waitress was very friendly. The soup was great...well flavored and fresh. They snuck in some octopus and prawns for good measure :-). The gnocchi was very cheesy and made fresh for us...delightful. Not... More

We found this place while were looking for some nice place to have dinner in, the first day we arrived to Lido. Following days, we tried another restaurants, but no one was as good as this one, so for the last night we find ourselves in Zi Catari again, enjoying local wine, seafood, pasta and unbelievable desserts. Can there be... More

The food was great and the place is nice... traditional! The prices are reasonable, service is not bad either. Overall I think the place is great for a daily lunch or dinner when you are on holiday.

We have been using this Restaurant for a couple of years as it's one of the few that's open on Mondays in Ostia and we usually have lunch before our afternoon flight back to the UK. We were warmly welcomed - and remembered - not bad considering that we only visit about once a year! The smells emanating from the... More

We found this by accident and, although we were slightly concerned by the prices (and the fact that there was no-one else in there!), the food served was exceptional. My seafood risotto was the best I've ever had. My husband had an excellent seafood grill, one daughter really enjoyed the mussels and the other had really good lamb chops. We... More

We have been in Lido di Ostia for several months, and finally tried this restaurant when the beach area started to come alive (beginning of the season). We loved the pizza, some of the best I've ever had. The appetizer of mixed grilled veggies was REALLY great. The staff was very friendly, and explained to us everything we needed to... More

We were pleased with our visit to Zi Catari, especially as it can be difficult sometimes to find a good eating establishment open for lunch. The owner took our custom requests for both pizza and risotto. Both were quite good. We found the prices on the high side, and they don't take AmEx. Outdoor seating in good weather with a... More
