I am currently sitting at the restaurant and the only one good thing it has is wi-fi. We order tasteless calamary, salty asparagus soup, and very poor ensalata capresse. The child food never came, and we paid 60 Euros!!!! We paid cover charge and service!!!

Absolutely awful place. We were starving and thirsty when we left the ruins and walked past a few cafeterias before what LOOKED like a nice restaurant. How wrong we were. Dreadful service with bad attitude, horrible food including undercooked (i.e. hard) risotto and a raw...More
