“Steer clear of this place”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2009

We booked a table at Les Vitelloni for a special birthday meal on a Saturday evening, and the experience turned into a total disaster.
Whilst our bottle of Montepulciano was good and our shared starter of cured meats was tasty, the price was high and no plates were provided.
We then ordered one pasta dish and 3 veal t-bone steaks, only to be told 5minutes later that they only had one left (at 8:30pm on a Saturday night you might expect a decent restaurant to have enough food available, especially as there are only a handful of meat dishes to choose from on their menu). Instead two sets of lamb chops were ordered and then we waited...and waited...and waitied.
After nearly an hour (by which time many of the other tables around us had been served, despite arriving after us) we asked the waiter if there was a problem. Then the pasta dish arrived - but none of the other dishes.
10 minutes later the veal steak and one set of chops arrived. We were then told that the second set of chops was being recooked as they had been burnt.
Yet more waiting followed.
Unfortunately the veal steak was raw in the middle (not pink or rare...raw) but the lamb chops, however, were burnt to a crisp.
Then when the final dish arrived, the second set of chops was terribly under cooked and, once again, raw.
When we complained to the waiter, he replied that it was not his fault and his attitude was unapologetic. When we then had to point out that he was 'front of house' and had a responsibility to listen to customers complaints, we decided to leave.
All in all a very bad experience and the worst example of over priced food and extremely poor customer service.
