Typical produce from Cervia

Cervia's sweet salt is our white gold. The rich aromas of fish and seafood from the Adriatic, just the thing to whet your appetite.

A taste of salt and the sea

The best of Cervia cuisine

We recommend trying some of our seafood delicacies. Enjoy oily fish down by the sea shore or grilled in breadcrumbs like the fishermen used to.
Down by the canal, order a piadina stuffed with delicious cured meats and local cheeses made with sweet salt, all washed down with a glass of Sangiovese wine.
Our cuisine is a celebration of our region's wonderful produce.

They are reared out at sea and could not be fresher. If you like seafood, try eating them with just ice and a dash of lemon juice.
