This is the best con/scam in italy. Offer free parking if you have lunch with them. Lots of big smiles and welcomes, however no-one mentions that you have to have a minimum spend of €40 in order to qualify for this benefit. We ended up having a very small, avereage meal with stale bread and a lousy atmosphere. Bathrooms are... More

This is as much a warning as a review; this restaurant offers free parking if you chose to dine with them. What they negate to mention up front is the 40 euro minimum spend. As with many other reviewers, we ended up eating here after an exhausting day exploring Pompeii. The trick with this scam is that they only reveal... More

Really awful. Avoid like the plague. Food undercooked, flies everywhere. Didn't bring one of our main courses, no bread but charged for both. Seriously awful.

Arrived at Pompeii by car and saw 2 car parks right opposite the entrance to Pompeii - one free and one not. Me being a cynic I chose the one not free but once inside discovered it was 3 euros per hour. Went to leave and was offered 7 euros for the day or free if we had lunch there.... More

I am Italian and as a turist I went to visit Pompei. I am writing in English so I hope I can alert tourist from everywhere. Do not trust in this parking-restaurant. They ask 3 Euros per hour and they say that if you eat there the parking is free. So after visiting Pompei we decided to stop there to... More

Today I park in this place and they told me, and is printed in the ticket that parking is free if you are customer of the restaurant. When we return from the the Pompei ruins visit, 5 hours later, we go to the restaurant and they said me, after being in the table and having ordered some drinks, AND AFTER... More

Yep, should have looked at the reviews first. But, while looking for a place to park while touring the Pompeii ruins, this was pretty much the first parking lot. At 3 euro an hour, we thought it'd be okay cause we thought we'd only be an hour or two. Five hours later (seriously, Pompeii was so fascinating) we finally left.... More

As others mentioned, avoid at all costs. They lure you with signboards, which look official and badges around their necks but there is nothing official there. 3 € an hour or partial hour except if you eat in their restaurant which we didn't thanks to TripAdvisor. Above all things, their parking meter was 10 minutes ahead of the real time... More

Terrible service! Stay away!!! Here you have to spend 40€ to get the parking comped. Well, they don't tell you this until you sit down. After ordering 1 pizza, 4€ salad and espresso we got a bill of 33€!!! Then we asked to add to our order since we got trapped with being 7€ away from a free parking and... More
