Tonight I went there with two mentally challenged women and my husband. We booked very early, and asked for a table near the back, out of the way. From experience, this works best. The table we were offered first I felt was a bit too exposed and asked to be moved. Done in a flash. We were treated with exactly the right combination of respect and humour our group needed. Both women have medical needs. The first thing was to get their meds. I asked if they had yogurt, surely not a common request in an Italian restaurant. Presto, 2 small bowls of yogurt and spoons. Full marks. Next, i asked for one of the fish dishes to be divided for the two women, with no sauce or garnishing, plus an order of cannelloni to be divided between the two plates. No problem. (I have been charged $5..00 extra in other restaurants for this, after a hassle!) Our server took the time to listen to each of the women, one of whom has a speech problem, to understand what she wanted to drink. Full marks. And a side dish of spinach? Of course. And served in two small dishes. Unbelievable. And my husband's and my food was outstanding, as was the wine, which was very reasonably priced. My family went to Vittoria Trattoria for years when it was in the Glebe, and miss it very much. But having the experience we had tonight, compared to some we have had with the women who were our guests tonight leaves me in tears. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.
