Beware - con artists!!

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... read 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

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

Just park. Don't eat! Read the back side of the parking ticket before you enter the restaurant! This is really a tourist trap!

We had noticed from the very beginning that the food was expensive but we decided to stay as we were very tired after walking in Pompeii for several hours under the Italian sun and also we were told the parking would be free. Unfortunately it turned out to be the most expensive meal I've had in Italy with average food... More

Had we read the reviews we would have skipped this place. It is a tourist trap, and we ended up paying about E150 for what would have been a E60 lunch elsewhere (since the prices were high, they added a per person cover AND a 15 percent service charge). in exchange we got free parking. Unfortunately the line was long... More

Absolute tourist trap. DO NOT EAT HERE. Pay for the parking and go somewhere else to eat. They will RIP YOU OFF. I have not had a worse dining experience in my life. Wish I could rate it lower than 1. The only thing worse than the rip off price (15% serviso charge plus a 2 euro per person table... More
