Fortezza Medicea Restaurant, Italy

From series “The most exotic restaurants in the world”
In the surroundings of Pisa, there is a striking historical sight - the Fortezza Medicea Castle, the largest part of its existence as the site of the high-security prison. A few years ago the historical prison was opened for the excursions. Later, the 'prison restaurant' of the same name was opened. To sample its specialties, guests have to observe some rules.

Fortezza Medicea Restaurant, Italy It is forbidden to bring cell phones and bags to jail. At the entrance, all visitors are searched using a metal search device. The visitors have a chance to attract a real prison form, which will make the impressions even sharper. The restaurant still has an important distinctive feature - all its staff consists exclusively of prisoners who are punished in the old prison. The prisoners cook the food for the visitors and serve them personally, some of them playing different musical instruments.

The spacious dining room, which accommodates about a hundred guests, was furnished in the prison dining room. During the reconstruction, the original equipment was completely preserved. Even the most economical tourists can have dinner in one of the most original restaurants on the planet. Dinner costs about 25 euros. The humble 'prison feast' consists of a meal and a glass of wine. All the dishes presented in the menu are fairly simple; Paste is one of the most popular among them. Next - Cannibalistic Sushi Restaurant
