The dinner was very good. Many different dishes with a variety and a theatrical way of serving.... The show was a jazz and blues performance with 8 musicians- excellent as well. Very much recommended!

Like other reviewers, I experienced some pushing to get to the food, but I wasn't surprised as Italians and French don't know what a line is. The cold salads were impressive - couscous, potato salad, lentils and at least 5 more. All the red wine...More

This was a interesting addition to our holiday and an enjoyable way to spend an evening. The music afterwards (a gypsy music duo) was fantastic and the food was tasty and rustic.

Authentic theatre where all traditional food is cooked in open kitchen As soon as there is something ready cooked the owner shouts like a merchant trough the windown that new food is ready.

Very casual set up in an old theatre. You pay a fixed fee and the food is served buffet style, with the cooks shouting what's being served. It's all good, though it's in Italian so you just have to go with it. Wine is included,...More

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.

There is a number you can call on the website. They will have all the info. There is one woman there who speaks good English but you need to request to speak with her otherwise it's very difficult to communicate.
