Looking for a unique dining experience? Book early for dinner at Fortezza Medicea Restaurant in Volterra, Italy (near Pisa). This restaurant is located inside a prison and staffed almost entirely by inmates.
Dinner is served inside the deconsecrated chapel set behind the 60 ft. high walls watch towers, searchlights and security cameras. The Fortezza Medicea is 500 years old. Cutlery is plastic, in case you were worried.
Signature Dish: Gnocchi with fava bean purée. What? You expected something else?
The long wait is further intensified, in that every diner must be screened by Rome's Ministry of Justice.
