World's Weirdest Restaurants

Slide 2 of 7

Fortezza Medicea Restaurant; Volterra, Italy

In Italy one of the toughest restaurants to get into is this oddly situated one, set inside a prison and staffed almost entirely by inmates (don't worry, the cutlery is plastic). One reason for the waits of up to two months is that it's hugely popular; the other is that every diner needs to be screened by Rome's Ministry of Justice.
