  • Very nice place, all kinds of pizza I really liked especially this one with tartufi. Carting is another great thing. You can enjoy great view from restoram terace while your friend are in the race.  more »
  • After 20 years as a regular every holiday I won't go again. The staff is extremely rude and bossy: my son, 19 years old, at the end of the race (if you can define) complained that the Commissioners have stuck very abruptly a his bid to overtake another kart. The owner of about 55 years, went face to face and at my son's little push to make him move, 10 customers have gone against to tune him up without taking into account the rest of the family present minimante ... including children. A really shameful scene which, fortunately, my son has not carried.

  • Track beautiful ... for the rest absolutely discouraged: kart tyres detuned tremendously, placed on the trajectory and completely at random, so that force you to go even slower and make almost impossible overtaking (then pay for a ride on karts, but force you to take a walk), rude staff, hygiene died, since they make you wear a helmet without giving you the headset because it didn't have any. Absolutely not recommended! Not worth the money they ask you. In short, the game is worth the candle nn.

  • An amazing experience. The track is not just a flat road, it's on a small not very steep hill. It has many turns and at the end there is a long straight line with the possibility to boost it. In a 10 minutes drive I made 8-12 rounds. Really worth the money. They offer a 9hp kart for 80kn, which is designed for kids, and a 11hp 100kn for regular users. For a faster experience there is a 13hp kart for 130kn and for experienced drivers they also have a 17hp kart for 150kn - but they hesitate, I guess you need to show yourself on a 13hp first. For small kids too afraid to drive they have a double kart - adult + kid - for the price of 120kn. All the prices are for the 10 minutes drive and include borrowing a helmet (not mandatory). No discount possible, driving license obviously not necessary. The karts look ok and in good condition, the engine, exhaust etc. are covered so there is only a tiny chance of burning yourself when getting in or out. The seat is quite comfortable and surrounds one's bottom tightly, which comes in handy in the sharp turns where the body feels like falling out. Especially when accelerating in a turn it is hard to hold the head with the helmet straight up (in the 13hp kart), so it's good to take a light one. During the drive the instructors stand on several places along the track and may stop you and give you some advice or help you turn on the engine if it gets turned off. Since the steering is not powered one's palms may hurt in the final minutes or after the drive. One star less because of the prices, otherwise everything's perfect.
  • Nice outdoor kart track! Had great fun with my son. Prices average, equipment ok. Staff was friendly. Been there multiple times, but not during high-season. Can indeed confirm that there is no safety-instruction session like it is mandatory to go through at most other racetracks, but we didn't experience any odd or even rude behavior of the personnel. Perhaps a high-season issue when it's crowded and the nerves are down.
  • Nice, quiet place. Beuatiful and clean. Amazing sights
  • Only cash, safety not the greatest concern here, you can easily get runed over, sometimes "crazy" people on the track.
  • The track and the karts are great, best track I've been to, really enjoyed that. It's also really cool that you can go in the evening, it adds something special. There are five different karts, one for children (80 hrk), one for two persons (120 hrk) and three for adults with different horse power (100, 130 and 150 hrk). When you're new you start with the slowest kart and when they see you can handle it you are allowed to go in a faster one. So as I said, I loved the track of 1002m long with lots of fun corners and you go up and down hill a bit. The speed you can carry through the penultimate corner and then onto the straight with the (second) fastest kart, it feels amazing. But, and this is a big but, some people who are there for the safety are just so hot headed when someone makes a mistake, I couldn't believe my eyes. They even yell at the children. And when it's an adult who goes off the track or bumps someone (not even hard) someone literally screamed "you're stupid, you're stupid!" right in the face even when he said "I'm sorry" 1000 times, I am actually not making this up. The only thing that happened is that he didn't know that the session ended (in my opinion mainly because of the unclear signs) so he breaked too late and touched someone in the back. I hope they will change this awful attitude because similar incidents occured multiple times. It just already starts wrong. There is no explanation about karting or safety whatsoever unlike every other place where I've been, (no tracked karts as well). You just pay, get your helmet and kart, and go. Even when I asked can I get a helmet that fits better, they just say, "Just go in kart 54!" This is the most important thing they have to change: there are five corners on the track where someone stands with a yellow or checkered flag at the start and the end of the session of 10 minutes and when there is an accident. Sometimes they wave with it, sometimes they hold it up straight. But they don't even explain what those signs mean. Even the checkered flag is unclear, do you have to stop immediately or are you allowed to finish the session with an inlap (one last lap where you drive your kart slowely back) when they show this flag to you. Apparently the yellow flags they hold up straight means session finished and when they wave them it means slow down and only one kart can pass through there. It would be really helpful if they would explain at least these signs before a session and/or hang a big signboard with the rules. That prevents a lot of mistakes of the drivers, cause they don't even know they are making a mistake before someone yells at them. In short, if they would change the attitude of some of their personnel and make something up to make it clear for the drivers what the rules are (and track their karts), it could be such a great place for go karting and then I would love to come back again and again. Besides, I understand safety is important, but it would be more fun when you're allowed to make mistakes once in a while (like just a bit of lawn mowing or a little bump), if you're not allowed to take any risks it's not really fun anymore.
