WHERE TO EAT IN CIVITAVECCHIA
Fast Food Restaurants
On via Zara #8, just a block from the main viale Garibaldi is a large modern Subway restaurant if you’re in the mood for a sub instead of a “panino”. It has tables outdoors and free wi-fi for your laptop so you can connect online.
Tip: Take the stairs next to the McDonald’s for a great view of Forte Michelangelo and the harbor. Keep walking along, and you will find yourself along the walkway on the walls of what used to be a defense wall.
Sit Down Restaurants
Lungoporto Antonio Gramsci, 65
Family owned trattoria since 1885. The seafood is among the freshest and most excellent in the area. It has both indoor and outdoor seating. Upon seating down you’ll find a fresh basket of breads and bruschette on the table, and each guest is served a flute of Prosseco on the house. Such service you don’t find in many restaurants! Your after-meal coffee comes with a small plate of various biscuits. The service and the food can’t be beat and we highly recommend it (afterall, we go there ourselves each chance we get!)
Coffee and Deserts
Corso Marconi Guglielmo, 49
Chocolate and art have never tasted or looked more decadent than at Cioccolart. Whether a “sweet heart” for your sweetheart, or “edible tools” for the weekend warrior on a holiday, you will be in chocolate and dessert heaven when you step inside this small family owned chocolateria and cafe. Aside from the many handmade high-end artisan chocolate masterpieces, you will find a delicious variety of cakes, pastries, muffins, and great coffee to go with everything! All their products are handmade fresh on premise. We can’t think of more beautiful desserts to enjoy, and thoughtful gifts for loved ones than these edible pieces of chocolate art from Cioccolart.
Pasticceria Bar Danilo
Corso Marconi Guglielmo, 40
You’ll find many locals gathering here for their espresso and cappuccino fixes, as well as satisfying their sweet tooth with the various pastries and biscuits. It’s off the beaten tourist path so you can mingle with the locals. Outdoor tables available.
