Host with the most; Gianpietro recommended a fantastic fried octopus starter followed by the best vongole voraci we've ever had! Vonngole and seafood ravioli was unforgettable! Sicilian swordfish was rustic perfection! We finished with the most incredible strawberry cheesecake... More

We were one of the only tables so it's no surprise we got attention from the staff, but they went beyond and the food was fantastic. Fresh pastas were the highlight... one with sword fish and the other with porcini mushrooms. Grilled calamari is very fresh and a huge portion. Must try the desserts while you're at it. Also very...

I ate in this restaurant several times. Excellent food, excellent service. The location is fantastic: near the walls of the medieval town of Ostia Antica, and right across from the ruins of the ancient Roman city. They always cook fresh food and they prepare wonderful fresh fish and even homemade tortellini. Ottima cena, abbiamo mangiato sempre bene! Il servizio è... More

I went for lunch with some friends after visiting ostia antica. The food was ok but less than impressing. After finishing our meal, we decided to have an espresso. As the waiter brought our espressos, he spilled them over my phone and my friends arm. This caused her skin to burn, because the coffee was smoking hot. But what really... More

I read with astonishment this review made by a 18 year old girl inside a group of Austrian pupils all very polite. The 70 boys and teachers have eaten so good with the thanks of the professors after a meal. The only drawback that the girl of the review and a coffee 'was poured on the shirt because the waiter...

Found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. All the reviews were true! We were a party of two and had the pasta with clams and the shrimp risotto. Both were excellent. Also I had to try the deep fried anchovies as I had heard they were a regional specialty. Very tasty. Service was great and the house red wine very drinkable.... More

We ate here after touring the ruins at Ostia Antiqua. The owner quided us in our meal selection and the fish ravioli was divine as well as the lemon flavored shrimp scampi. His pasta all made in house became the standard we measured all subsequent meals by.

I stumbled across Ristorante Monumento in Ostia Antica on the way to see Rome's beach. The restaurant is set on a courtyard next to a monument honoring men of the town for a heroic effort of ancient times. Our host invited us in like long lost family. He asked our appetite level and made suggestions that were exactly what we... More

We stopped by Ostia Antica for lunch on our way to the airport after six weeks in Italy. We had heard that this restaurant was excellent and it certainly lived up to its reputation. We had the special cappelletti romagnoli and it was delicious. With some delicious white wine, it was a great ending to our trip.
