Normally I would never go into a restaurant in the parking lot of a major tourist site. But since it was raining and the kids were hungry, practicality won over common sense. The least I can say about the waiters is that they are rude. The food is mediocre, service is slow. But with a 2 eur/person cover charge +... More

This place is a scam they put 10 Euros on top of are bill. The food was disgusting please don't go here. I tried to argue this in the restaurant but this fell of deaf ears. Before you even start eating its 10 euros for a family of five. The soft drinks were 3 Euros and the pizza was inedible.... More

We challenged the bad reviews and enjoyed 5 great and hearty pizzas. 2 EUR/person cover charge plus 15% service charge on top made it a rather expensive lunch, but pizza was good. Lots of other places to eat in the area, so probably better to skip this one and ear closer to the ruins another time :-)

We parked there on visiting Pompei at 3 euros an hour, free parking if you ate there on your return. GOT TOTALLY RIPPED OFF !!! Food was okay, the beer was flat and awful and the restaurant charged us an extra 15% service charge with a further 8 euros to change the table cloth. When we questioned the waiter he... More

This place is the biggest con in the world. Traffic around the roads to the ruins was not moving well when a guy in an 'official' looking uniform with an 'ID badge' on a lanyard around his neck directed us into their carpark. The sign says Parking, Entrance To The Ruins, which is untrue as the entrance to the ruins... More

Worst experience ever! Everything is expensive and this restaurant charges a lot of extra fees. Parking is fine but DO NOT eat there!

I wish I had read a review on this place before we decided to dine there. It is a parking lot and restaurant and most people don't plan ahead for parking so are unaware of the come- on they are about to agree to. When you park the friendly parking attendant tells you that parking is 3 euros unless you... More

6 of us ate lunch there after visiting the Pompeii Ruins. We asked how big the pizza's were. The waiter said we each needed our own pizza. Four of us had half our pizza's left. No wine list. The waiter offered to pick the wine. He brought out a 50 E bottle of wine. We happened to ask the price,... More

Just opposite the main entrance to Pompeii, this place offers free parking if you spend 40 euros on lunch. Given that parking is 3 euros an hour, maybe not that good a deal, but if you find yourselves wanting to visit Pompeii and in need of food, then this place does good Italian fare at reasonable prices in a pleasant...

We parked here under the pretense that after spending the day in Pompeii ruins we could eat at the pizzeria and get the parking free. I even asked twice to be sure. We came back tired and hungry but there were different people at that time and they said 'oh, no - that's only for lunch'??? Be careful these people... More
