We had originally planned to go to another restaurant, but since it was full, we started to browse around the Sliema strand. We saw Tentazioni and it appeared very nice on the outside. Since it was night and cold outside we decided straight away to sit inside.
Inside it looked very simple with some mild decorating. It was not so bad, but definitely not good. We ordered a pint of coke and a glass of house wine to begin with. The coke was actually flat pepsi, and the house wine tasted awful like those 2 euro bottles found in a supermarket. Regardless, they charged a high price.
As we waited for our food, we received some complimentary food. This consisted of old stale toasted bread with edges burnt and the middle shrivled up. It was actually one slice of bread cut in half. The herbs on it were good.
After we finished these toasts we received a basket of bread which was also noticibly stale, but not as bad.
Then our food arrived. We waited a normal amount of time, however, the food itself was of very poor quality. My partner ordered the veal escalopes which was a too small a plate for the price. My pizza appeared to be 3x the amount of food than what she got. In the end I shared my pizza with her because she did not have a good enough amount on her plate. The veal itself tasted fine, but the sauce was nothing special. My pizza, the 4 stagioni, was very roughly done. It was quite burnt in the centre and did not have its ingredients spread out. There were lumps of cheese, an overload of olives, and not to mention..
there was a hair in my food.
We ended up eating the remaining bread in the basket because we were still a bit hungry.
This is the first time I did not leave any tip at all. We will never go there again. They actually gave us a trip-advisor card, and because it was so horrible, I decided to go to trip advisor and write this review.
