In Canada and USA this would be called a truck stop. There is a resort/hotel here but this review is on one of the restaurants.
We have stopped here on two occasions as we travelled from Puglia to Calabria by car. The nearest town is Sibari but the actual hotel/ristorante is pretty well isolated but right on the highway.
What we like is that the restaurat that is open (and we have only been here during off season) is a Tavola Caldo which is like a North American style buffet. You can see the food (hot and cold) and simply point and say "stop". It is not self serve, so portions are dished out on your plate.
It is absolutely not a fancy place, but there are clean washrooms and we have always enjoyed seeing the food and trying out some different things. And the price is reasonable.
I would recommend the Hotel/Ristorante Sybaris for lunch at the Tavola Caldo. I can not comment on the hotel or the other restaurants.
