I would never want to falsely accuse a restaurant of skullduggery, but my experience at Trattoria Toscana just left me amazed by an apparent scam to switch our wine with a cheaper one.
My wife & I ate here because we were looking for a casual break from our big German meals. While the food & prices were about as expected, I am about 99.9% certain that we were swindled on our wine. Our server brought out the €28 bottle of Chianti we ordered and opened it tableside; she then sniffed the cork rather theatrically, pronounced the wine as bad, then took the bottle from the room, returning only seconds later with an identical bottle, ALREADY OPENED. Without any further explanation, she poured this wine and left us with the bottle.
I am no sommelier and could not tell if the bottle actually contained the Chianti that we had ordered, but the entire chain of events was so bizarre that I felt that SOMETHING was wrong; I suppose she may have just brought back the original "spoiled" bottle, but I finally concluded that our wine had been switched. I guess I was foolish to have accepted the new bottle already opened, and I certainly will never do it again.
Except for this strange incident, the rest of the experience was OK, as the food was reasonably good and the prices about average for the tourist part of Heidelberg.
