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

This was our worst Italy experience! Don't get in to the trap of Free Parking after spending 10 eur per person. They are going to add 15% service and table price to the tap. I don't want to mention the attitude and the horrible pizza. We couldn't even eat the pasta. At the end you will have a very expensive... More

We parked there so that we were able to visit Pompeii. The parking is 3 euros per hour. We were told that if we ate at their restaurant, that we would not have to pay for parking. Unfortunately, we did not read the fine print that said that our restaurant bill had to be 40 euros before we received the... More

If this 'restaurant' existed in 79 AD, the people of Pompeii would have probably said, "We're going to die horribly but let's look at the bright side, at least we won't have to eat at this terrible place any more!" I say we learn from the ancients. We couldn't decide if the waiters were sweating on purpose (it certainly wasn't... More

My phone did not work and was not able to look up the Tripadvisor reviews before eating here. Bad food. They worst I have eaten while in Italy. Waiter was awful!!! Coffee was gross, hard to find in Italy - but you found it if you go here.! Yuck, and got ripped off as well. Just don't do it! €3... More

We Found a parking space right outsider Pompei and the young man helped me with buying a book about the ruin. So far so good he then said that if we had lunch at the resturant we would get the parking for free and we would the worlds best pizza. We jokere about that and went to see the ruin.... More
