“Absolutely overrated!”
Reviewed August 15, 2014

Inspired by the top ratings we stopped by for a drink and were planning to have a bite as well. On first sight the place looked uninspiring, to say the least, some uncomfortable seats outside while it was completely dark inside, located near a busy road towards the Pompei city center. Although we were the only customers at that time (late afternoon) it took quite a while before our drinks arrived, the waiter apparently found his mobile phone much more interesting than a few customers. to cut a long story short: this definitely shouldn't be the nr 2 place in Pompei to go for anything!

“place to go to in Pompeii!”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

Came here a couple nights in a row when I was staying in Pompeii and it was great! Usually just went out for drinks with friends and it was very relaxing and a fun atmosphere. Great service, Luigi is a great waiter and always makes your time there a pleasant experience. Cute outdoor seating, a must visit place if you're in want of some small late night snack/food and some drinks!

“Nice cocktails when they eventually arrived”
Reviewed June 24, 2014 via mobile

We stopped by here for a drink on the way back to our hotel. We fancied a nice cocktail. The waiter was quick to take our order but took forever for our drinks to actually appear. We thought the waiter had forgotten about us and when we asked where our drinks were the waiter was short with us. The wait for the bill was equally long. Overall lovely drink but not worth the waiting especially on a quiet Monday night!
