Pizza and some pasta on menu. Service is acceptable offered by a g number of foreign servers who do not seem to have much training in foodservice. Customer care is not the priority as it took me a good five minutes to get some fresh pepper.

Palazzo Santa Rosa has now been divided into two restaurants. The first is a Pizzeria called Margo's which I have already reviewed whilst the second is called Tam Tam Piggy. The specialty of the house is suckling pig as well as cured meats. The website gives a graphic description of the manner in which the food is cooked so we opted to book a table for four for Sunday lunch. As soon as we arrived we could smell the suckling pig and this made the place very welcoming. The problems started however when we came to order the wine. The wine menu was very vast however the actual selection available was very limited and VERY expensive! It was quite disappointing. As starters we ordered the cured meat platter (very good) which consisted of smoked pork, Maltese Sausage (smoked) and Parma Ham. We also ordered the pork liver pate which was not that great. The bread served was very good (sour-dough) as well as the olive oil. As mains we had the suckling pig and the one week aged fillet. The latter was very good however the pig was overcooked and a definite disappointment. We did not have desert and just ordered coffees which were not great either.
The service on the day was quite poor although the food did not take long to arrive.
The Total price per person was around 50 Euros. Definitely an experience not to be repeated.

I believe that this restaurant was set up by the Pschyology dept to experiment on how different people react to different scenarios... whilst a "genius" is whipping up an unpalatable thesis in the kitchen.

I had tried this restaurant when they had opened a Pizzeria a year or 2 ago... the wait was so long that the pizza was wolfed down without even tasting it had vowed never to go back. Well my dear brother suggested we try it out again seem to have opened a new venue called Tam Tam Piggy.
When we arrived it seemed like we had arrived in purgatory everyone was in a state of slight chaos that strange feeling that something has gone terribly wrong and a huge coverup operation is on the way- we should have scrammed it fast but no we love punishment. We got our drinks & appetizers in the "chill out zone" after an 1hr 15 mins we were invited to our table there where approx 6 -7 tables and as yet no one was eating. A female assistant chef was happily roasting a skewered pig at the back- totally oblivious to everyone, we got our starters which were totally below average. In the meantime a frantic woman from an adjacent table stood up in a desperate plea to try and attract food towrds her table.... another table of 6 just stood up and left.... An other 30 mins passed 2 main courses arrived - pork pie- their idea of a pork pie is a layer of burnt charcoal black potatoes floating in a swill of very fatty pork.... anyway one had 3rd degree burns & was sent back meanwhile we were still waiting to get our roast pork which was only 3 metres away from us... but no the girl was not parting with any pork she wanted it all to herself..... basically they have concluded that there is a limit to human patience. Please do not go there & spare yourself some stress & money.
