With a strong focus on local produce, Civitavecchia has a great variety of places to eat of varying cuisines and price ranges. A port city, seafood is of the highest quality here and cucina romana (local roman cuisine) also features heavily. Restaurants are located throughout the city including along the lungomare (sea promenade) and within the old medieval town center. The main street Via Garibaldi which lies between the port and the train station (along the promenade) features many restaurants, pizzerias and bars and is popular with both locals and tourists. Piazza Fratti in the old Ghetto (which lies east of the main pedestrian shopping strip Corso Centocelle) is also very popular and quite lively in the evenings.
In the warmer months, many venues offer outdoor dining and near the beach at Il Pirgo, there are a few cafes to choose from. Whether you're after a casual seafood affair, pizza, fine dining or cucina romana (roman cuisine) you'll find something to treat your appetite.
Being so close to the sea and with many places offering prized views one would think exorbitant prices, but because of its distance from Rome, authentic and quality food can be found at a reasonable price - and without tourist traps. Buon appetito!
