In most cases, we will have paid for our services at these venues. If the services we received were complimentary, this will be disclosed in the post.
We are not critics. Rather, our restaurant and lodging posts are intended to provide useful information to readers who visit Italy. For this reason, we only write favorable reviews of restaurants and lodging that we believe our readers will enjoy.
The hospitality sector is ever-changing. While we seek to keep our posts updated, readers should contact restaurants and lodging themselves and exercise their own due diligence and judgment before booking. Many factors can affect the patron experience, and readers may have a different experience than we did. We welcome constructive comments from readers who visit restaurants and lodging featured on our website.
