A den of thieves. All are in cahoots (a mischievous coordinated behavior), beware both locals and tourists alike. This was one of very few restaurants open on January 1, and the hotel we stayed in in Munich recommended it. The attitude of the waiters was immediately suspicious. They wanted to "read" the customer, and they "read" us well, as tourists....but not average ones. We know a good place from another. The way several of the waiters behaved was very suspicious, telling. We asked for risotto... yes.. what a crazy idea, no? Risotto in an italian restaurant? Well, when we returned the plate because it was a "mass of flavorless rice", the experienced waiter had the nerve to say: "Well, a risotto takes 20 minutes to make..... and this one only took 10". What????! To make a long story short, when the bill arrived, we were charged EUR4.50 for a sliced tomato!!!! The waiter recommended a wine that was not on the wine list, he was very pushy, and I yielded to his suggestion. A sweet, poor quality wine supposed to be the "best in the house". It was again, a trick. It was very likely a very cheap wine for which the margin is huge. Deceiving and intentionally wrong-doing. Again, when paying the bill, we left the tip in the voucher. The waiter came back with an unintelligible argument saying that he had "cancelled" the tip or something of the sort.....all to "try" to take advantage of us. The "manager" or "owner" was sooooo surprised..... BS. He was well aware of the shoddy, shady, tricky ways of the waiters. Therefore, a den of thieves, they are all involved. If you want a pizza and nothing else, it may be fine. But NOT A RESTAURANT. Period.
