My husband and I found this restaurant by accident, while hanging out in the town just before going on our cruise on 16 Jun 2012. The location is fantastic, right on the main street and across the street from the beach. It was a hot, sweltering day but sitting at one of the tables on the front patio, we completely forgot about the heat.
The staff was really great! The owner (I think he was the owner, there were pictures all over the restaurant of him with "famous" people) even came out to check on us to make sure everything was good. Everything was! The food was excellent! My husband had the salmon raviolli and I had spaghetti carbonara.
We had such a wonderful time, we came back for lunch on the day after our cruise returned. The staff were just as great and they even remembered us (at least they said they did). Again, it was a totally wonderful experience. This time I had the pizza, which is totally different than American pizza because the dough is very thin, even still it was delicious!
The only bad thing I can say about this restaurant is the large group of Americans (My husband and I are both American, as well) who let their young children run screaming all over the front of the restaurant, even after the youngest one (who looked to be about 2) fell and hurt herself.
We stayed in Civitavecchia a few days and ate at other places, but in our opinion, this was the best restaurant the town has to offer! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone and I hope to be able to eat there again some day.
