“Classical tourist rip-off”
Review of In Marinetta

In Marinetta
Ranked #4 of 56 Restaurants in Rosolina
Price range: US$28 - US$56
Restaurant details
Reviewed 10 August 2018

Nice location with beautiful setting. But that's already all. Besides that, here is the wish father of thought and the ambition of this restaurant is far bigger than the abilities.

Most of the food was mediocre and you'll find everything far better at other restaurants in Rosolina and its surrounding. However, the crowning glory of this failure is, that they are ripping off tourists as back in the glory of Italian tourism back in the eighties. When you buy fish per kilogram here, they charge rudely: for an ordinary fish plate with bass (branzino) they charged us 48 euro per person. And to be precise: It was quite mediocre and looked as if the cook had driven over it with the car. A real shame, and you have to keep in mind, that rather expensive fish is really cheap in restaurants in this region (eg dover sole for 17 euro or lobster for 25 euro). So when they charge 48 for bass, they are nothing else than a tourist trap.

Rather unclever business philosophy in todays digital age. Comes in addition that our family is in this region for several months per year and would have spent thousands of euro at this good looking restaurant in the next years. But when the greed for fast tourist money is so rude, we go to other places like Capello or Monte in close vicinity of this tourist trap.

Dear "to_many_reg_users",
We believe our unique location creates the best atmosphere and dinner experience for our clients, and we are glad you liked it so much.
We are also sorry that our restaurant's philosophy was greatly understood.
We do not aim to be a pretentious restaurant, at all!!!
WE are simply proud to be an "ittiturismo" that cooks and serves EXCLUSIVELY FRESH LOCAL FISH and other seasonal ingredients.
YOU are well aware of the prices of the FROZEN FISH you can find in the area, but certainly that is not the fish or quality we are offering.
For example, the lobster you are mentioning are not local product and they arrive from very far away.
On the contrary, all the fish we serve is caught in the local area.
We look forward to hosting you again and we hope that you will able to appreciate our food without feeling ripped-off, like the vast majority of our customers does, as proven by their reviews and repeat visits, whether they are Italian or foreign, tourist or locals.
