Whilst on holiday in the area we made the mistake of using the Restaurant which forms a part of this Hotel; this review is based on that experience only, as we have never stayed at the Hotel.
It must be said that the waiters were very professional; however the quality of the food was nothing short of appalling. I had a pizza - should be difficult to get that too wrong. I only ate half - at a guess I'd say it was a supermarket frozen pizza (and for me to leave half a pizza then it MUST be bad!!). My partner had (from memory) a breaded veal cutlet - if it tasted anything like it looked then it too wasn't too clever; half of that also ended up staying on the plate.
Chips? Surely they can't make a mess of those? Wrong!! They didn't even resemble chips - they were more like ball-shaped mashed potato deep-fried in breadcrumbs. Even the waiter seemed a little embarrassed when he placed them on the table - he referred to them as "Special Chips...".
No wonder the place was deserted on a Sunday night in late may - for a restaurant in Italy to be deserted on the busiest night of the week should've rung alarm bells...
End result? An appalling meal and 29 Euros out of pocket - one of the few times I wished I'd complained; however my partner didn't want to get into an argument so we left asap.
