Cocktails and pasta in the Cesenatico restaurants

What could be nicer than sitting in a bar on a beach holiday on the Adriatic coast, a Cocktail or enjoy Italian dolce far niente in one of the restaurants. Only: it's not that simple. In Cesenatico you should know where to do that, because there are some Cesenatico restaurants whose behavior we did not like, such as the first restaurant on the historic canal in the old town that refused to let us have a drink on a hot early summer day serve instead of a meal that had already been organized for us elsewhere. And that, although the restaurant was almost empty. Such behavior is an absolute no-go for us.



However, restaurants in Cesenatico are not all so

As a tourist, you are no longer a welcome guest in such establishments, but a number and a source of profit. Even the most beautiful location is no longer enough to lure us back there. We usually avoid such restaurants like the devil avoids holy water. But where can you enjoy a cocktail in Cesenatico in pleasant surroundings and feel welcome while eating? We present such restaurants in Cesenatico here.

Antipasti at the beach restaurant - hospitality in Cesenatico restaurants on the beach

Our experience in one of the simple Cesenatico restaurants on the beach, which are lined up one after the other along the promenade of Cesenatico, was quite different. The kitchen stayed cold the evening we spent there, but we were treated to an excellent selection of local hams and cheeses with homemade chutneys and fresh piadina bread. However, the best part of our stay was the warm hospitality with which we were welcomed there. We came as strangers and were made to feel like longtime friends at the small restaurant owned by Bagno operator Andrea and his wife. Her stories about her experiences with visitors who have been vacationing in Cesenatico for years and for whom her beach restaurant is an integral part of a vacation on the Adriatic Sea were fascinating. For us, our simple dinner at the two's was one of the most impressive culinary experiences we had in Cesenatico.

A Mojito at the Cesenatico Restaurant of the Hotel Lungomare

A wonderful place to enjoy a cool sundowner is the elegant terrace of the Four star hotels Lungomare at Viale Giosuè Carducci *, the beach promenade of Cesenatico. Here we sit in comfortable upholstered furniture, grouped together in an appealing mix of vintage and modern, and let us, with a light breeze that blows in from the sea, taste the ice-cold drink after a hot day in the mountains in the hinterland of Cesenatico tastes wonderful. Unfortunately, we only discovered this hotel the day before we left Cesenatico, because we would certainly have come back here to try the Cesenatico restaurant. Maybe next time?

Just across the street from the main road that runs along the beach of Cesenatico, stands the Hotel Excelsior *, a well-maintained three-star hotel, with its somewhat plush-looking lobby area is quite inviting. We feel even more welcome when we talk to the reception staff. And our heart wins the hotel with its wonderfully bitter Aperol Spritz, which we are served on the spacious terrace of the Hotel Excelsior. Here we can watch the hotel manager, as she accommodating other guests in perfect German welcome and gives them tips for their vacation in and around Cesenatico. A hotel with a heart so.

When it comes to eating, most of the hotels whose Cesenatico restaurants we got to know are preparing for mass tourism: with buffets where hardly any personal service is necessary and the hotel guest feels less like a guest and more like a small cog in the gears of a huge hotel machine. This shows that there is another way Hotel Tiffany *, a well-kept three-star hotel in Viale A. Modigliani, Cesenatico, where the owner of the hotel looks after every meal and personally looks after his guests. The buffet is varied and tasty prepared, and the service friendly and the guest endeavored. A selection of the food that we got there, we present you here:
