Trenitalia on-board catering: offerings and prices

Jump to last reply

For those who might be tempted to splurge on a full (or light) meal on board a Trenitalia Frecciarossa train, here is the current menu, which shows both a la carte and fixed prices

Here is the snack menu with prices (also available on Frecciargento and some Frecciabianca trains):

A regular or decaf espresso costs 1.50 Euros. A cappuccino costs 1.70 Euros.

OPINION: Full meals (32 Euros per person) are not particularly cost-justifiable, unless you're travelling on a business tab. The snack items are often not as good as similar products products purchased on the ground. On the other hand, there is no substitute for a freshly made espresso coffee, which Trenitalia can prepare to order for a very reasonable charge of 1.50 Euros.

NOTE: Holders of first class tickets on all Frecciarossa, all Frecciargento and certain Frecciabianca trains (only between Turin/Milan and Venice/Udine/Trieste), as well as "business" and "premium" level tickets on select Frecciarossa trains, get a complimentary beverage and a salty or sweet snack, plus a complimentary Italian-language newspaper on train departing before 1 p.m. These are provided via a rolling cart at the beginning of the trip. On NONSTOP Frecciarossa trains between Milan and Rome, holders of business class tickets get a complimentary Illy espresso coffee served at their seat.

OTHER TRAINS: There is no food or beverage provided on the unreserved "regionale" trains. A few Intercity trains may have a rolling cart snack/beverage service, but no restaurant car.
