My wife and I had a delightful lunch on a cool November day. The food and service are excellent. The main drawback is that there is no view of the sea. After we ordered, our waiter brought us an excellent platter of different breads. For...starters we had the egg and truffle and octopus with a potato sauce; and for mains, the turbo and the tuna. We had their Civitavecchia tiramisu for dessert, the main difference from the traditional version is that they use panettone rather than lady fingers. All the food was excellent--although I prefer the traditional tiramisu. My only other comment was that although we felt reasonably safe, they only offer indoor dining. The dining area is a long corridor, which with few guests is fine, but not ideal.More

We had an extremely good meal while staying in Civitavecchia prior to a cruise. Forma is down a side street, but you recognize it immediately by the look - you know you're in for a great meal. The interior is like a cave or cellar,...but in a cozy way - lots of bright lights and colour (although it does kill cell phone reception!). The menu is absolutely fantastic. We had so many different dishes, and each was delicious. The stand out dish was the Parmesan tortellini - the parm was liquid inside the pasta and such a new and interesting texture. We loved it. Service as well was perfect, although we were the first customers of the day. Excellent attention to detail, absolutely no issue with speaking english. The bill was also very fair and not much more than you'd pay at a much worse restaurant on the main road. This is definitely the place to go for dinner if you're in the city.More

The place is really special, has very distinct tastes and all the dishes were very good. We had a lot of dishes with black truffle. There are a few complimentary dishes. The waiter was very friendly and all in all it was a very positive...experience experienceMore

We came here for New Year’s Eve dinner after a delicious lunch a few weeks before. The place has a very cool elegant vibe with low key jazz in the background creating a very relaxing environment. The service is five star with extremely knowledgeable and...friendly staff. When we came the first time we told the maitre d that we were vegans and the chef rose to the occasion and adapted the menu to give us a delicious lunch. For New Year’s Eve he created an entire 7 course dinner for us! We are back again tonight feasting on home made bread and enjoying the taster menu which he has adapted for us including involtini of cabbage stuffed with bread and chestnuts, followed by cauliflower steaks with an amazing sauce ,risotto with broccoli, truffle and wild garlic , an excellent bean burger and an amazing chocolate desert We cannot recommend Forma more highly. They also offer a very wide selection of excellent Italian wine at very reasonable cost. It’s worth booking not to be disappointed!More

Located in a very attractive location, where you have chance to breath the ancient history of Civitavecchia. Friendly and professional staff with high quality and refined seafood and and also truffle based dishes. Huge selection of high standard wines. Very honest bill, super advised. Thanks!

Forma was recommended by our hotel. We were starving after a transatlantic flight. The menu is very "nouvelle cuisine" and I'm more of a steak and potatoes kind of gal. The menu is in Italian, of course, and the waiter did not speak English. My...translator app came in handy. There really wasn't that much on the menu that appealed to me -- too "frou-frou" for my taste. Nevertheless, I had an excellent piece of sea bass that was expertly cooked. My gnocchi appetizer was ok but not something I'd order again. The waiter was very nice and friendly. Overall, a very nice meal in a lovely restaurant.More

We went to this restaurant upon recommendation and we enjoyed a lovely fish dinner. I think it is a new restaurant and, although we had a language barrier, we were able to order and have a memorable meal. Wait staff was helpful in explaining options....I would be happy to go there again and would heartily recommend it to others.More
