The restaurant has a large parking lot where you can park for 3€ per hour. If you eat there, the parking is free. Of course, don't expect a generous offer. The food and beverages are a little bit expensive, the service a little long, the selection of the books limited. But what else can you expect in Pompei? On the... More

Be prepared to be stung at anyone of the PARKING sites around the historical site of Pompeii. Parking is not free, if you use any of the parking areas you have to pay around 3 euros per hour when you leave. Or you can eat before or after wards, but be prepared to to spend the min of €40 euros.... More

I wouldn't mind paying the price of the food for the free parking if they actually made good food. After living in Italy for almost two years I can honestly say this is the worst pizza I have ever eaten. None of the sea food was fresh. The food was almost inedible. Just about everything obviously came from a can.

A real scourge on Italy tourism. You would be foolish to go to this place after reading all these reviews which seem to agree completely. Rude people, very bad food, extremely overpriced, terrible service......the staff seems to be laughing at the "stupid tourists" even as they allegedly take care of you. Warning: Once you pull into their parking lot, which... More

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
