Impressive location

There's no place like this restaurant in terms of location. Unfortunately the food is not as good as it was it the 90s. Quite expensive too.

I have visited this restaurant a couple of years ago. I came back in September 2014 and I was pleasantly surprised. Not much has changed. You will find a great rustic/Mexican/ranch ambiance. It's a fine mixture between many styles. One of the best I have visited in Italy. And I live and travel for work all across Italy. You will... More

We came here because it was the only place we found to be open on Easter Monday night in Zola Predosa (later we found out about a few others). The place is huge and filled with wacky decor like aquariums and taxidermy. We ordered the antipasto buffet and a dessert. It was all pretty poor food.

Concentrate on local specialities like Tagletelle, many different meat dishes and of course woodfired Pizza. You have to try it, I promise you it will become... More

There's nothing wrong with the food, a good selection of dishes. The service is though very poor. Waiting over half an hour to get a drink and then another half hour for someone to take the order. At no time during the meal did anyone come to see if we were alright or needed another drink. 3 of us with... More
