With the variation in food selections and venues for dining, you won’t go hungry when you take a cruise on the Costa Magica. The two main restaurants on the ship – the Costa Smeralda and the Portofino – are spacious areas with assigned seating and set times for the evening meal. You can also have breakfast and lunch in these areas as well and sit wherever and with whomever you please.

The assigned seating is based on your cabin selection with those in the forward cabins dining in the Portofino and those in the aft cabins dining in the Costa Smeralda. Guests are also placed with those who speak the same language. You can choose from a wine list for your evening meal. Water however is not standard fare at the tables and if you do need to have water with your meal, you do have to buy bottled water. You can also choose to have your salad at the beginning or the end of your meal.





At the Bellagio Buffet on Lido Deck you have an expansive selection of foods for all three meals of the day. There are different stations set up for the various types of cuisine, so you don’t have to go through all of the restaurant to find your favourites. Coffee is available here 24 hours a day and there is an ice-cream station during the day. Just about all passengers could be seated in this venue with comfort in the large outdoor section and the two decks for the inside portion. During the late evening hours, the Bellagio becomes a pizza restaurant and there is usually a late night snack of some kind for those who want something to nibble on before they retire for the night.

The Vincenza Tavernetta Club is the alternative restaurant on the Costa Magica. This restaurant can seat 88 people where your food is cooked to order. There is a cover charge involved in dining in this venue and reservations are required.

You can order room service at any time, but the menu is limited. It is mainly Continental in nature and includes three types of sandwiches.
