I am sure that this place gets good-to-excellent reviews for the only reason that it feeds the customers with huge portions at low prices. But there's no way here for which the quantity can make up for quality.
Food was simply lousy: the pastas were overcooked and the ingredients of the condiments cheap. The seafood in the "Fritto Misto" was probably frozen and of the consistecy of chewing-gum. Mixed grilled fish was dry and hardly edible. But there was a lot of it!!
"Alla Botte" deserves two stars because the premises are nice, clean and with a modern, captivating look. The service is passible despite of the number of people always filling the tables from late afternoon to late night. Indeed, the first time I came here I though it was an incident. I gave the place a second chance but was no better. It would have been better instead if I steered clear from this cafeteria-styled tourist trap.
