We were recommended to have lunch here by our tour guide, who said it would cost us 14 euros for a meal with wine. As we were a tour group, on a bus, we could hardly refuse. It was appalling! The meals on offer were cheap and far from cheerful, the one glass of wine was very bad and the... More

At first it sounded so cool - free parking for a dinner at a nearby restaurant. Only until we saw the bill from the restaurant with 15% service fee (which was actually terrible btw), food was mediocre at best and I kinda wish we payed our 9 euro for parking, kept our good mood and had dinner somewhere else. Avoid... More

We laugh about it now but really, if you're looking to get scammed for giggles do visit this place. FREE parking if you have lunch here. If we'd paid the 9 euros, we'd have been happy... However.. We decided to have lunch. After ordering 2 pizzas and 2 cokes (cost 32.50 euros) we were told that lunch needed to be... More

Upon arrival they promise that you get a free parking if you eat your lunch at their place . Alas when you order they show you the 'letters in small print' saying that you have to buy for at least 40 euro to get the free parking - and despite overpriced food we could not spend that amount ..... ending...

We had lunch there, but they make you to have a mediocre lunch for 40 euro, and then charge 15% for the horrible service. The food was below average.

Our Pompeii Vesuvius tour from Amalfi had 45 people eat lunch here for 13 Euros each all inclusive. Salad. Choice of 5 or 6 mains. A scoop of ice cream (not Gelato) and a drink which was bottled water or pop. The service for a group this size was ok . I would say about 4 or 5 out of... More

As other reviewers say it cost 3€ per hour to park here but it is free if you eat in the restaurant. We did not find the food more expensive than we expected in a tourist location. The service was good the time to serve the food indicated it was cooked fresh for each order. The waiters were not very... More

This place has parking close to Pompeii. The deal is you don't pay for parking (€3 per hour) if you eat in the restaurant - there is a minimum spend. The food was expensive and ok and the restaurant is convenient at the end of a days exploring....but beware....in addition to the €2 per head cover charge, there is a... More

Normally I would never go into a restaurant in the parking lot of a major tourist site. But since it was raining and the kids were hungry, practicality won over common sense. The least I can say about the waiters is that they are rude. The food is mediocre, service is slow. But with a 2 eur/person cover charge +... More
