No it’s not cheap but I wasn’t expecting it to be. We had a lovely evening watching the sun go down. We chose one of the set menus with wine pairing and were not disappointed. We have eaten in very high end restaurants, and local...More

This restaurant is about the scenery and period. Food is overpriced and they don't even know how to do a rare steak. It was overcooked. A simple beef and fries for a child cost 45€!!!

Is the food served at grotta palazzese worth the price (€350 for a 2 vegetarian set menus, with wine pairings including an additional €10 for a cup of coffee at the end)? Erm... hell no! But, that doesn’t necessarily mean I don’t recommend it. It...More

I installed TripAdvisor today literally just to write this review and warn people to avoid this scam. The cave is certainly nice but the overall experience was terrible. Very cold every client had to use blankets on top of their raincoats. Service is poor, waiters...More
