“Waited and ignored”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

I have been traveling to Italy for over 25 years, and I have never been treated this poorly. We arrived at around 1400 local time, and walked up waiting for a greeting. After standing for 10 minutes we sat down at a table amongst the other patrons in a restaurant which I estimated to be only 30% full. We sat at the table for 30 minutes never even having a Bon Giorno or any acknowledgment. After the 30 minutes, we got up to walk out and at that time, a waiter comes over after we are about five steps away from the table. I have never been discriminated as a tourist, and I did observe most people were locals there. I guess they take care of the regulars first. If you have a lot of time and just want to be ignored, or want to rest your feet, stop in here, they won't bother you taking up space there. I wish I could have reviewed the food, but I guess they didn't want us to have any.

“Great manager, good food but too expensive”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Beach food is good but too expensive. Price of beach equipment is extravagant, not attractive at all. Manager service is great but much improvement to be made re. prices for weekly clients or less
