We gave this restaurant one last chance, after a very mediocre visit about 6 months ago. This time it was even worse. We went with 8 others (10 in total) and only did so because it was booked by our friends.
The main courses were the size of starters. 4 people had chosen Carbonara. 2 of the dishes had so little ham/bacon in them, they might as well have been just spaghetti with a bit of creamy sauce! We complained to the manager, who said they had never had another complaint like it (which is not true at all because not only did WE complain last time but two other tables did so on the same evening! During THIS visit, we heard at least another one table making a complaint about 15 minutes before, during our starters). He brought more pasta for the people who wanted it, but again it had very little ham in it.
The attitude of the manager was awful and the staff were disinterested, apart from one young girl who was lovely (but embarrassed).
It's a shame because the place is pretty and could be good, if only they got the food right. It costs SO little for pasta, why charge a fortune and make portions so small?
We won't be going again.
