I think it had been out through the deflavorizer first The kind of place that caters to tourists who they know won't come back so... More

Lousy service. Mediocre food wasn't enough to compensate for it. Too many other good places to chose from to make this a worthwhile stop.

Three of us ate one night on the street at Castello Fiorentino. The waiters were like a tag team match and by the end of the evening we were laughing so hard that the tears were streaming down our faces. You cannot predict an evening like this or replicate it. The waiter tried to get us to accept spaghetti vongole... More

I have travelled Sicily around and visited other popular tourist destination and this was the only restaurant I came across that charged Service Charge (20% of the total bill) on top of "Coperto" (Usually 1 eur extra as a compulsory "tips"). Just a way to make customers think the food is cheaper than it actually is. The Service Charge is... More

Pizza was amazing, staff friendly & helpful. Service poss a bit slow but they were rushed off their feet so we didn't mind. Would recommend & we may go back if we have time 22 euros for pizza, pasta & 2 drinks so good value for money.

I came to Italy to taste amazing pasta and rice dishes, the risotto here was awful. Really watery and no flavour. Very disappointed. And they had a20% surcharge PLUS 1.50 euro each service fee!!!!! Don't go there

6:30pm - We stop by to find out when would it open, given the high remarks in guidebooks. We are told to come back at 7pm. 7:00pm - We come back, eager to sit down and have drinks. We are told to come back again at 7:30pm, by an incredibly rude waiter who wouldn't even stand-up to talk to us... More

hostile service, food that was ordered did not come. Staff was not helpful and they tried to serve me an inferior bottle of wine to the one I had ordered.
