At Seat Catering

According to the time of day of travel, passengers will be able to choose from a menu of catering options, which will then be served at their seats.

The travel experience:

The ambience of the Business Class on Frecciarossa trains is similar to the travelling experience in First Class on Europe's other top tier express train services, as the seats, which have leather upholstery, are arranged 2 + 1 across the aisle, with some seats also available in a lounge area,

Quiet Zone seats are available, so if travelling in these coaches would be your preference, look out for 'Business Area Silenzio' when booking tickets.

In addition to a complimentary welcome drink and snacks (not served on Saturdays), the catering staff can also serve a selection of sandwiches and light meals on request, those these additional food and drink items have to be paid for prior to leaving the train.

If you will be travelling with a First Class InterRail or Eurail pass and make a reservation to travel on a Frecciarossa train service, your allocated seats will be in Business Class.

Until recently these trains, which have been totally refurbished by Trenitalia since their move to Italy, were classed by Trenitalia as Frecciargento services.
Though their upgrade to Frecciarossa status makes sense as (1) in common with the Frecciarossa 500 trains and the Frecciarossa 1000 trains they are purpose built high-speed trains and (2) they are not tilting trains.
