The food at this restaurant is worth every penny. The chef is top notch. His dishes are amazing. The wine is top notch. The ambiance is top notch. The service is top notch. The price is good. I love this place.
For a couple of years now, I’ve enjoyed spending a couple of hours here every month with a new and exciting Italian meal. I’ve never been disappointed, and I always expect to come back for another meal.
I used to visit Costa del sol just once every other year. It is a family restaurant with a charming interior and it is always packed with locals and tourists alike. But not anymore. Costa del sol is not the same.
Costa Del Sol, as it used to be called, is now a place where the rich get fancy and the poor get desperate. It has become yet another place where the government-created poverty line has been crossed. And I mean crossed.
Costa del sol (meaning the poor) is an Italian word that means “the poor people.” So this is a place where the rich get fancy and the poor get desperate. And that’s why the poor people get there.
Costa del sol is a city in southern Italy. We’ve all had our share of crappy food and cold beer. These places are all equally awful. I’m not even going to talk about the food and beer.
When I first tried to imagine the worst places to eat in the US there is a pretty good chance that I was imagining a place called a “sloppy burrito joint,” or a “gulag.” In fact, if you add up all the places I could imagine, that would make the worst place to eat in the US. But Costa del Sol is a city that has developed a reputation for being the worst place to eat in Italy.
If you haven’t already guessed, Costa del Sol is not actually the worst place to eat in Italy. That honor went to Rome itself. But Costa del Sol is not as terrible as Rome. In fact, it’s one of the best Italian restaurants in the world.
You see, Costa del Sol is a city, not a region. It has two regions, the Italian region of South Tyrol, and the Austrian region of Salzburg. And they are the two largest regions in the country, with about 30 million people living within a 10-15 minute drive of one another. So when people say Costa del Sol is the worst place to eat in the US, they are probably referring to Salzburg, not Costa del Sol.
Salzburg is a beautiful place to eat. Its food is amazing and they have a lot of it. It is also one of the most expensive places to eat in the world. So when people say Costa del Sol is the worst place to eat in the US, they are probably referring to Salzburg, not Costa del Sol.
