This is very clearly an elegant spot and an incredible setting. We had lunch here while spending the day at La Posta Vecchia and the food is quoted delicious. I found it to be pricey for what you get but I suppose that is to be expected when you have a captive audience at a 5-star hotel. The pasta was... More

At a Sunday lunch on the lovely terrace, the service was solicitous and professional, yet not pretentious or overbearing. But the food was so bland that the cheese stuffed zucchini blossoms tasted almost the same as the pork belly on a root vegetable purée. It's hard to figure out how such a gorgeous and expensive place can serve food so... More

This starred restaurant offers, beside good food, also a stunning scenery. The service, as you may expect , is impeccable. The only minus.... extravagant price of wine by the glass. 20€ for an OK wine of no pedegree is "a bit" over the top. This continued to be the topic of conversation during our whole weekend in Rome.

Had several meals at The Cesar this summer as well. With two small kids. Excellent food. Choice not limited by the printed menu. Really good service. Location cannot be better.

Tucked away half an hour from both Rome & the cruise port of Civitavecchia lies this jewel of a hotel POSTA VECCHIA overlooking the Sea. Words cannot describe the pristine beauty one feels as one enters the property - one is immediately enveloped with a feeling of calm. It's no wonder that a U.S. Billionaire lovingly restored a villa whose... More

Perfection! The Chef's (Chef Michelino Gioia) choices are a delight to the palate - and so thoughtfully paired with wines and different courses. Service is unsurpassed!

What a remarkable visit! The terrace, view, and food were perfect and we all hated to leave. Our service could not have been better and we all felt special and pampered. I highly recommend the Cesar to anyone - you will want to go back again and again.

A truly wonderful experience. I worked with the restaurant to plan a special birthday lunch for my mother and they did not disappoint. The food was perfect, the location was beyond beautiful and the staff was attentive and warm. Big thanks to Bruno, Patrizia and to Danielle for making this one of the highlights of our trip to Italy.
