We stayed at Villa de Fiori for 3 nights in a family room. The hotel was nice - a bit like going back in time 50 years - but they did have internet access and a small television in the room. There was a lovely swimming pool. The thing that ruined our stay was the food. When booking by email, I was asked if we would like half board at 23 euros per person. I told them my husband was a vegetarian (eating fish and chicken) - but was assured that this would not be a problem. On the first night we were not offered a choice until we said that my younger son did not like risotto - he then had simple spaghetti (aglio, olio and peperoncino). My boys were still hungry at the end of the meal - so we had to order more food for them - for which we were charged extra. The third night was the worst - again we were not offered a choice and when my husband said he did not eat pork, he was offered an omelette and then the waiter told us that we were very difficult! My husband then complained to the owner - who was nice but did not seem to grasp just how upset we were by this unpleasant attitude towards us. The restaurant offers an a la carte menu but if you are on half board you are made to feel like a second class guest and you are not offered a written menu. Breakfast was completely different - it was served in the kitchen and there was a wide choice.
