We came here twice in the past and food was ok. We both had pizza's and beer. They have talking parrot in the restaurant who likes to speak Italian which is a nice touch. During our third visit I did notice that the service is not as good as before. Waiter was a bit moody and service was very slow.

La Ghiacciaia is a wonderful place to enjoy lunch in Civitavecchia. Located on the ramparts of Pope Urban's Walls, the restaurant looks out over the sea and offers tables outdoors as well as in an enclosed pavilion, shaded from the hot sun but open to cooling sea breezes. But this is not merely a restaurant with a great location: Both... More

I've never been ignored in a restaurant before😕. Given table. After 25 minutes caught a waiter and asked if I could order. Order taken. 20 minutes later water arrived, 10 minutes bread arrived, 15 minutes cutlery, 10 minutes food after chasing. Meanwhile others (Italians) had arrived, ordered, eaten and left! Food excellent

Free wifi, prices reasonable. The shrimp/seafood gnocchi is excellent. We stayed in the city for a cruise. Ended up eating at his restaurant 3 times.

Right on top of the town wall overlooking the harbor, you can sometimes see the staff feeding a friendly seagull. Open long hours, I had lunch there. They were OK with serving me the salad before the primi - I was so dying for fresh salad after long flights. The linguini was just smothered in porcini mushrooms and was very... More

After a 24 hour journey from South Africa, our BnB host recommended this place for lunch. Delicious pizza with prawns as well as a pasta with fish and another pasta with prawns (which looked like smaller langoustines). My pasta with fish was absolutely delicious and I thought I wouldn't get through half of it, but almost finished it! Service was... More

I've eaten her twice and both meals were excellent. The seafood pasta was delicious with more clams than I could eat. The pizza was light and delicious. The view over the marina is dramatic. The staff was friendly and attentive. Great restaurant
