Costa neoClassica Dining
The Il Dolce Amore Patisserie lives up to its name with pastries and after dinner drinks, the casual La Taverna Pizza is a bar offering freshly made pizza, with different specialties each day, and the breakfast and lunch buffet at La Trattoria and the outdoor Al Fresco Cafe is lavish and varied, as is the artwork, from hand painted tiles to beautiful marble. The 825-seat Tivoli Restaurant operates on a traditional early/late dining policy and has its seating pretty much evenly divided among tables for two, four six, seven and ten, but the majority are actually tables for five, with a handful for eight. Cuisine is international with Italian specialties every day: pastas, veal dishes and seafood drew the highest marks from passengers, as did dishes that reflected the regions the ship cruises. Desserts too were exceptional, and Midnight Buffets took in the needs of low fat and sugar-free diets.
