We were a group of 4 people. Initially, the service seemed OK. A table was quickly organised in a pleasant part of the downstairs trattoria.
From then onwards, it was the worst Italian dining experience I can recall in 25+ years. The waitress practically slammed the menus on our table and walked off. Eventually she returned with a perfunctory "buona sera" with pen poised over her pad and not the slightest attempt at eye contact. A slight hesitation in ordering left her drumming her fingers on the pad in exasperation.
Having completed the order, the first starter (bruschetta) came after 10-15 mins. Another 10 mins elapsed. We enquired about the delay to the other starters. "Coming" was the brusque reply but without any attempt to check with the kitchen. Eventually they arrived and, predictably, the soup was tepid.
The main courses were equally slow. This time we asked another staff member when our main courses would be coming. To his credit he immediately checked and a few minutes later Miss Sourface delivered some more tepid food. We asked what the problem was: "I only deliver the plates" was the reply. This was more than hour after we had ordered in a restaurant with two or three occupied tables.
While we were enduring this, we noticed another couple ordered drinks from the same waitress. His beer came quite quickly but her orange juice took a long time. Eventually, they just paid for their drinks, rolled their eyes and left.
We didn't bother with dessert or coffee.
If you want poor food and rude service in a nice environment, look no further!
