Light food, coffee, soft drinks sustain the visitors to Ostia Antica site. After walking around for 1-2 hours, it's good to sit down here and relax

This site is both amazing and overwhelming! This cafeteria gives the visitor a place to refuel and decompress while wandering an amazing ancient site. Hot dishes are available as well as panini and sides. Wines by the glass and by the bottle. Indoor and out...More

The only place if you have to eat on the spot during your visit of the site. If you go out to find a restaurant, you can't re-enter with the same ticket : you have to pay again full fare. So no choice, if perhaps...More

The waiter at the resgister deliberately overcharged us for our sandwiches ( 8€ instead of 6€). I mean deliberatlely because he wasn't surprised or sorry when I told him.The food is not very good. Pack a picnic!

The Food: Cheap, nasty cafe food and they can't even do that right. The chicken was as dry as the ruins of Ostia and the fries were overcooked frozen rubbish. The Price: Extortionate, three times what you would pay at a decent place in the...More

I felt that the price, food options and service exceeded my expectations for a tourist location. Perhaps because I'm comparing it to what you get from Xanterra in the US at National Parks so I set the bar too low. Met our needs since we...More

The maps at Ostia Antica show a bar/restaurant and toilets and when you need either, this is the place. Wine, beer, ice cream and snacks are their forte'. Sit outside or inside. Buy a t-shirt next door at the souvenir store.
