Tips from the Net @ Al Vecchio Porco

Good food - at the cost of a terrible customer experience. I was tricked by the waiter to overpay as he "demanded" more tips - really a shame, and embarrassing situation. Long story short, the food and table service are good. However, when paying the bill (45 euros) I only gave 1.50 euro tip, honestly all money I had in my pocket as I was paying the bill with credit card, so I told the waiter to add an extra 1.50 to the tip, making it 3 euros. Remember in Italy tip is not mandatory. Nevertheless, the waiter insistently asked me to pay 50 euros - giving him 6.50 as tip, which he claimed was because of the "Italian banks"(?). Coming from a "poor" country myself I knew instantly this was a trick to make the tourist give more money, so "saddened" by the episode I paid 2 euros more with my credit card - no point in fighting for little money in a work trip - but I would never come back there, as dishonesty in business is something I cannot accept. Thank you. Pedro GooglePlace - November 2017

Great surprise! Was looking for a place in the area and just stopped in and found a cozy, welcoming atmosphere. Great food, ranging from fried calamari which were fresh, to Ossobuco and risotto Milanese. Highly recommended! GooglePlace - November 2017

We went to this restaurant because it was just next to our hotel. We were positively surprised by the good food and very pleasant atmosphere. GooglePlace - October 2017

Location vecchia, anni 80, come l'impiattamento.. Troppo caro per quello che abbiamo mangiato. Sconsigliatissimo 👎🏻 Foursquare - September 2017
