We had the freshest fish grilled perfectly at l'Ideale for a long, leisurely lunch. The view is great too....table by the sea! It's a great fish restaurant.

Unfortunately the sign of a very good restaurant is to order something that is not their fortepiano I'm this case risotto ragusa bland and fairly tasteless with nothing on the plate other than said risotto. Moving on to a main course of scallops of veal in a lemon sauce can only be described as human vomit on a plate. The... More

hardly have to post negative reviews, but the ristorante Ideale is worth the time: nice starter platter 'terra' but from there in it went downhill. The service was arrogant to non-existing. The main dish fritto misto was a mess of tasteless fried seafood. At the end the waiter offered us a cappuccino. For digestive after a dinner?!? Hello?! He wanted... More

We stayed at a b&b close by, walking distance. That was good otherwise a car is a must. The fried seafood was ok. Friendly staff that tried to help and explain even if their english wasnt that good. But we got what we wanted and had a good time. Bring a sweatherrhogh, it was chilly in the restaurant.

After a long, miserable flight to Italy, we checked into our hotel in Civitavecchia and asked the manager where we could grab some lunch. He directed us to this place which was not too far a walking distance. The entrance has a pleasant "garden" with white stone paths and tables and chairs. Stone lamps were scattered about so I assume... More

We were lucky to find this restaurant close to our B&B, because we didn't have a car and it was within walking distance from the Tre Leoni B&B. We didn't know what to expect because the huge sign looked like it was fabricated in the 70's with half in "Waffle House" letters. The view was out of this world, and... More

Excellent food and fantastic panoramic view from the balcony! So even if outside is very hot, on the balcony you always feel a little bit of refreshing breeze. They have their own parking .

We arrived in Civitavecchia the day before boarding a cruise ship. Dinner was at an unexpected gem, the Ideale, directly on the water about a mile south of the cruise ship terminal. We had an appetizer of marinated shellfish which was superb, followed by pasta with clams which was good a presentation as I've had. But the best part was... More

Menu was only Italian but staff translated it so we got our order in. Food was really good and I can recommend the house wine. View was awesome as the terrace is by the mediterranean sea. Staff was also available so there was no waiting.

The food we had from the extensive menu was delicious and the service was very good. The view over the sea in beautiful and the location is very close to the city center .mwe were staying at the Sunbay Park Hotel, also very close, but maybe too far to walk. This was an enjoyable dining experience.

Thank waywardpalm
