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

We ended up parking here while trying to find a space in Pompeii. The deal is if you eat in the restaurant you park free of charge. If you don't it's €3 an hour. We decided to eat here as we were driving straight to Sorrento after visiting Pompeii. It wasn't cheap but the pizza was excellent & the staff... More

The guy at the gate gave us a parking voucher and said if you eat at my family's restaurant when your done visiting Pompei, parking is free. About 1pm, we traveled back to our parking spot and decided to give the restaurant a try because we had lost the parking voucher and weren't sure how long we had been at... More

Ripoff. We should have known better, but we were hungry, and in a hurry. The other reviews have the details, but suffice it to say we got a meal that should have been 10 euro, looked like 20 on the menu, and actually cost us 30. Just pay the 3 euro per hour for parking if you don't feel like... More

First of all we loved the city of Pompei, but we had great difficulties finding a parking space. The we discovered a parking place near the entrance, but the price was 3 € per hour. Anyway we took it as we had seen nowhere else. The man at the cashier said we could eat at MEC and the parking would... More

The reviews before say it all: Tourist trap. It's just a pity this kind of establishment isn't consulted by tourist before a visit. Anyway, it seems this cynically "legal" business has the connivance of authorities. Police may not have a say as nothing is illegal per se, but it is definitely a scheme (why didn't they put in the back... More

As you can read from the other reviews, this place is a tourist ripoff. We went into this trap about 2 weeks ago when visiting Pompeii. If you have to park there then don't go to the restaurant! The parking fee will only be deducted if you pay more than 40 Euros for your restaurant visit. The service as well... More

We were unfortunate enough to park here and thought we would have a very small meal after our visit to pompeii. 3 adults and 5 children had 1 soft drink and a very small pasta dish. We were treated like an inconvenience and when our meals finally arrived, we had to go and find our own knives and fork! The... More

I can only add to all the reviews here which tell you to avoid this rip off place. Do not get fooled into the "free parking" it will cost you more in service charges and cover charges than you will save. And the food and service is some of the worst we have ever had in Italy, definitely not worth... More
