Ordinary pizza. Nothing special. Sloopy service and the waitress charged us too much and insisted on us having two coffees although there were only one cup on the table. No good experience. Choose another restaurant!

Visited in the off season so lunch was in quiet restaurant. Nevertheless, there was a very good spread of fresh seafood on display. There is a small outside seating area next to a road that separates it from the beach. Inside is quite cavernous and I understand gets very busy at week-ends and in season when I imagine service gets... More

... on what you are looking for. On my latest visit, I had the pizza. Since the owners are from Naples, and I happen to like Neapolitan pizza, it was a wonderful visit. The pizza is very tasty and with fresh ingredients. The pasta dishes are also good with well-prepared sauces. I was also impressed that the meat dishes are... More

Here, we ate an amazing pasta with sea fruits and a average pizza 4 formaggi and a good wine. The restaurant looks very good and the staff was nice. It is also close to the beach. The prices are reasonable.

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
