Tourist Trap - Scam - Stay Away

Absolute tourist trap. DO NOT EAT HERE. Pay for the parking and go somewhere else to eat. They will RIP YOU OFF. I have not had a worse dining experience in my life. Wish I could rate it lower than 1. The only thing worse than the rip off price (15% serviso charge plus a 2 euro per person... read more

Only after ordering they tell you that parking is free if you spend a minimum of €40. So is you want to eat 4 bad pizzas, this is a good deal. Otherwise, just pay €3/hr and stay out of the shop and the restaurant.

When you drive in and park (legitimate car parking €3 an hour) you get pressured a lot into going into the restaraunt. A girl with good English says there is a 2 hour queue at the gate to the Pompeii ruins and if you eat at the restaraunt you get parking for free. There is a minimum spend of €40... More

I was going to write a review to warn other unsuspecting people of this total trap but now I see I really don't need to. Instead I wish I had checked online first. Our bill was 177Euro. It's a total scam. The food is way over priced and not very good. The location is down in ditch and you get... More

Parking is very convenient but the scam start there. They say parking is free if you eat at the restaurant. But you need to spend 40.00 plus they add services fee and entry fee. Food is ok.

Their big selling point is that they will waive parking fee to Pompeii ruins if you eat in their place. They fail to tell you beforehand though it is on menu that they will add a 15% service charge to bill. This is very unusual for Italy. We ordered simple pasta as we could already guess this place would be... More

They are located right across the street in front of the main entrance to the ruins. The parking costs seemed alright so we drove in. They will offer you tour books and let you know that if you dine in the restaurant adjacent to the parking lot, your parking is free. Very friendly initially until you return and dine at... More

We got hooked in by the parking sign. Free parking is offered if you spend €40 at lunch which you will be surprised to do by the time they add the 15% service charge and the per person €2 charge on top. We weren't told we would have to spend €40 either. Wouldn't have minded so much if the food... More

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
