“Overpriced for a set menu”
Reviewed September 24, 2012 via mobile

Lunched here for E14 at the recommendation of the tour guide as they were able to park the coach nearby & it's not far from the exit to the historic site. For that price I got a large pizza margherita with a side green salad which I didn't eat much of along with a drink (bottle of beer) some bread and a small tub of ice cream for dessert. Charged 2 Euro for a small bottle of water. My recommendation would be to look around before stopping here. My wife's main dish was tomatoes & mozzarella cheese.& others had omelette & chips. Don't know what the hotel rooms are like.

We ate in their restaurant because we were looking for somewhere to have lunch before going into Pompeii and were enticed by their offer of free parking if you eat in their restaurant. Over priced, horrible, intimidating staff who are dishonest if you don't check your bill. They felt that we didn't spend enough with them and were trying to pressurise us into ordering more food that we didn't want. Soul-less and just plain horrible. Avoid and go somewhere - anywhere - else!

My wife and I both agree that interaction with people is a huge factor in making or breaking a vacation trip. In this case the staff of the Marius et Caesar Hotel were wonderful. Some spoke English, some didn't but they were all warm, freindly, caring. They went out of their way to make sure we knew where we were going, warned us about dangers, gave us the best routes to our destination and carried on lengthy conversations with us-we felt like family!
