We usually avoid cafes on main squares as almost inevitably they promise more than they deliver and charge more than they should. Our lunch at Grand Italia started promisingly with a big platter of antipasti (plenty for four of us) which was a bit pricey at 15 Euros but not extortionate. Therefore we waited with some anticipation for our pasta. And we waited. And waited a little more. And some more. And some more again. After about 45 minutes the pasta course arrived. And half of us wished it hadn't. My wife's chicken and pasta salad was especially disappointing with incredibly dry and hard bits of chicken (she actually speculated that they may have been incredibly dry and hard bits of rabbit - but with so little taste it was difficult to know for sure).
Fortunately the time taken for the pasta to arrive had removed any temptation we may have otherwise had to stay for dessert or coffee - but, even so, the bill (for one shared course one plate of pasta and a drink) came to 25 Euros per head. Not good value at all.
If I were David Cameron, I would propose an EU-wide law which prevents any restaurant or café in a Main Square from charging 10% more than the average for the rest of the establishments in the town. Until such a law comes into effect, and on this evidence, we should revert to our family boycott of such places.
