It all depends...

The pizza is very tasty and with fresh ingredients. The pasta dishes are also good with well-prepared sauces. I was also impressed... read 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.

This place is a short walk from hotel. Turn left then walk about 500 metres. Great value, wonderful meals, with friendly helpful service.

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 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
