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 center of Roma. The Service: When asked questions (in Italian), given blunt rude answers. Food... More

We had a very nice lunch here. My wife had a nice salad and glass of wine. I had lasagna, a small salad and a glass of wine. We also treated our guide to lunch but I do not remember what he ate. It was about 43 euros for the three of us (including the wine for my wife and... 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 still wanted to enjoy the ruins a couple of more hours and didn't want to... 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.

The ruins at Ostia Antica are just that - ruins - so the best thing to do is pack a picnic lunch. There are even a few places just outside the gates where you can pick up something to eat, but if you should forget, then this cafe will supply a quick bite (and/or drink), albeit at a price. Generally... More

For a restaurant in the middle of such an ancient site it serves some reasonable stuff but it was very crowded and a bit grubby when we got there

We arrived at the cafe at about 14:00 after a couple of hours looking around the archaeological site. There didn't seem to be much appetising to eat but the drinks were reasonably priced considering that the cafe has a monopoly within the site.

Visited Ostia Antica yesterday, and needed a lunch and drink (particularly since it was pretty hot) so stopped by the cafeteria inside the park. Had a so-so lasagna (microwaved) and eggplant salad, two sodas and a water, price was just under 20 euros. The cafeteria is convenient, but you would be better off bringing in a lunch and having a...

We've stayed in Italy for a week so we decided to visit the Ostia Antica's archeological excavations. After visiting the place we were hungry so we went to this caffetteria in order to having a menu. I chose some pasta cooked in the oven. The poor quantity of pasta they put on my plate was like a raw dough with... More
