Our hosts took us on a tour of the huge Montecasino complex and we stopped here for dinner. We were quickly seated seeing the complex was packed and our meals was served reasonable quickly. Food was tasty and not pricey at all.

We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at La Scala, in the private dining room and it was such an amazing, happy experience. The food was exceptional with big portions and a great selection. The ambience was sublime and we were made to feel very special.
