If I said "ci sono ristoranti vicino alla fermata del treno?" wanting to ask the question: Is there restaurants close to the treno stop? would I need to include the article between ci sono and ristoranti. Such as ( ci sono il ristoranti vicino alla fermata del treno?)

Someone can correct me but pretty certain the answer is yes. However, restaurants is plural so it would be "Ci sono i ristoranti vicino alla fermata del treno?"

No, unless you we asking about specific restaurants that had been referenced earlier in a conversation

I might be wrong but I think this is necessary in French. Avery, maybe you're carrying this over from having studied another romance language?

I believe Robert has it right - you are asking about restaurants in general, the article is not used.
