“The worse place! The cheater`s place”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2009

The worse place ever I saw!
Me and my friends came there after a big walk in Viareggio.
1) The senior waitress took us to serve. She constantly released stupid, stupid jokes, not even able to understand that we

simply want to enjoy delicious food. We asked her to bring menu. She replied that the menu is on the table. There were 4

sheets on the table. But they are WITHOUT PRICES!

2) Then, when the other visitors came, she relegated our table unsmiling little Italian. She even forgot to serve glasses for

wine! We had to to remind her!

3) We ordered grigliata mista (it was stated that there should be a minimum of 2 persons for this order). So we were 4

persons, then we have to order 2 grigliata. She brought one small dish and put it in front by 2 of my friends. I and another

man were waiting for their portion. But it was not! To the question "Where our Grigliata?" she responded with surprise that

this (first plate) was for 4 persons (in single plate!) and in this small plate were 2 grigliata.

Of course, we do not agree with this, but no arguments about the fact that it is trite fraud and theft were not working! The

evening was spoiled! We have tried to appeal to the Carabineros, who told us that this is normal price and the normal

situation and that all restaurants and trattotias in Viareggio do so - do not give a menu with prices, to deceive the public.

Total for 2 antipasto and 2 dishes with 4 shrimp and 2 langustines, 4 beers and 1 liter of "vino della casa", we paid 130


Never ever visit that place! They cheat, they steal your money! WORSE PLACE!!

volevo portare a conoscenza che il Sig.Youri e i suoi 2 amici , dopo aver letto il menù con i relativi prezzi esposto fuori dal locale e dopo aver consumato antipasti e grigliate di mare si sono rifiutati di pagare perchè ritenevano che il prezzo fosse troppo alto. Io stesso dopo che più volte avevo spiegato che i prezzi sulla ricevuta fiscale erano gli stessi che avevano letto loro sul menù ho dovuto far intervenire la Polizia per riscuotere il dovuto, cosa che è avvenuta puntualmente. Loro si sono molto arrabbiati e hanno giurato di vendicarsi ma faccio presente che fino al momento del pagamento non era sorto nessun problema e nel piatto non era rimasto nulla di quello che avevano ordinato. Vi ringrazio per l'oppurtunità di replica.
