Linguine seafood and spaghetti pomodoro were excellent. Parking is free, a good spot if you want to visit the ruins. Service is not top quality but they are really friendly and cheerful. Wifi works well. Recommmended.

We got "coerced" into parking in this odd little lot on the right side outside of the opening of Pompei right outside of the restaurant. But it was the best experience. Raymond helped us park and gave us an older book of Pompei and gave...More
