Bread basket had 2 pieces of somewhat fresh bread, the remainder was stale. Makes me wonder if it was at someone else's table before it was placed on ours. Odd that you have to pay extra to have plain tomato sauce on your lasagna??? No fresh cheese...packets of processed cheese. Food had no presentation. Service staff completely indifferent to your...

My daughter ordered the fettucini with cream sauce. She was delivered a bowl of fettucini (they got that right) in a yellow soup with 2 individual packets of cheese to add. Really bad and tasteless.
