The staff at this restaurant are serving more than delicious southern Italian dishes. They’re also serving sentences for armed robbery and murder. Even the guy playing the piano is a hardened criminal.
The Fortezza Medicea restaurant in Volterra, just outside Pisa, is inside a high-security prison.
Open to the public once a month, diners eat on plain wooden benches with security guards standing watch. Only plastic cutlery and plates are used – just to be on the safe side.
The restaurant is an experiment in prison rehab – the idea being that inmates can find work in the catering industry after release.
Allow two months for a reservation though. You’ll have to be vetted by Italy’s Department of Justice first!
