Italian cuisine is centerstage at Cinecittà Studios

(December 3, 2010) – Cinecittá Studios is legendary for attracting the best and brightest filmmakers and actors with their expansive backlots, stunning sets, top of the line production facilities and expert studio management and technical support. An added bonus for the actors and crews shooting at Cinecittá has always been the delightful food and beverage service, including both a cafeteriastyle commissary and a café/coffee bar, where the food is delicious, the portions are generous and the atmosphere is casual and cordial. Cinecittá is able to arrange special catering for select guests. When Robert DeNiro was at the studio to film Manuale d’Amore 3 (Love Manual 3) earlier this year, he enjoyed the food so much that he often requested his favorite menu items be delivered to his dressing room apartment while he was working on the studio lot. What De Niro and other discerning studio visitors have discovered is that Cinecittá is also home to a first-class on-site restaurant featuring more upscale dining, which has recently undergone major renovations. The revamped restaurant features an innovative menu of Italian cuisine, including the popular Cinecittá salad, as well as an extensive selection of appetizers, pasta, fish, chicken and beef served in a comfortable VIP area where patrons can enjoy a respite from their shooting schedules.

In the best Italian tradition, the restaurant also offers a fine selection of wines to complement the meals. With first-class production facilities and a variety of exceptional dining options, Cinecittá Studios is perfectly situated to be a “home away from home” for discriminating filmmakers.
