As the early Christians undoubtedly said about the Colosseum in Rome: "it looked alright from the outside!" We arrived hot and thirsty and we presented with a menu afterwhich we were completely ignored. We walked out after 10 minutes. From the other reviews, it seems like the Christians were saved from the lions in this case.

On the menu cafe was 1 euro and they made as pay 5 for 2 espresso. The waiter was pretty rude when we asked the reason. Not recommended at all.

Had a lunch with family at Giacco. Ordered lasagne but sold out...They recommended gnocci. Others chosen Spaghetti Carbonare and Pizza. Both the gnocci and spaghetti were absolute with any fantasy. Not tasty at all. Pizza bottom like wet sponge. Below average...
