My wife and I stopped here on a short visit to Tarquinia. Our goal was to have lunch there on the way to Rome's airport at Fiumincino. We arrived an hour or so before the restaurants open for lunch, so we had a small amount of time to walk around the old city and marvel at its position in the countryside and its rich trove of Etruscan artifacts.
We noticed the menu of the restaurant Arcadia as we walked around as well as a few others. On the basis of the menu, we decided to lunch at Arcadia. The restaurant was fully packed when we walked in. There was a very large party that occupied all of the front room but we were offered a table in the back where it was a bit less noisy.
The interior of the restaurant comprises adjacent dining areas, wonderfully lighted and beautifully decorated.
My wife and I both opted for seafood price-fixed menu -- four courses, dessert, water, and wine -- for EUR 25 each person.
Antipasto was a lightly-smoked swordfish carpaccio, dribbled with EVOO and sitting on a bed of arugula. Delicious. The first course was a pasta with mussels and cherry tomatoes. I loved every bite, but my wife did not like this dish too much. The second course was beautifully grilled shrimp and a small salad. Two esspressi and a grapa at the end added an extra EUR 6 to the tab.
