Ostia Antica is a great site, but do not listen to anyone who suggests eating at the cantina there - we did and it was a bad mistake. This was the worst food we have ever had in Italy. Do not eat here under any...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

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.

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...More
