Are you in Civitavecchia a day or two before embarking on a cruise? Well, we have a tip for you ... eat dinner at La Scaletta!!! This fabulous restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel reception person as being one of the finest, family owned restaurants in the city. Since it was within walking distance, my husband and I, and our two close friends, decided to give it a try. From the appetizer to the dessert, from the caffe latte to the wine AND complimentary after dinner cordial, we were delighted with original, Italian fare. Every single dish was absolutely delicious and abundant. When we finally finished and left this wonderful restaurant, we could not have been more pleased and comfortably full. Ask to meet the chef. She is delightful! So, do not leave Civitavecchia without a visit to La Scaletta. You will have a wonderful time and carry away great memories of incredibly food, lovingly prepared and served with gusto!!! Ciao!!!
