Not been here for years, had a decent meal which was on special for £12.95 for a starter and main meal. Had the prawn cocktail and a half parmesan. Very filling and the beer was decent to.

Visited here last night for some food after big weekend... we were absolutely starving so I am gutted that it was so terrible.

We ordered buchetta, potato skins and nachos to start. The buchetta was just a piece of dry toast with about quarter of a tomato thrown on top and some dried out cheese... no olive oil or herbs that you would expect as standard on a buchetta...
The nachos were very average, again, over cooked cheese and poorly presented.
The potato skins where very greasy and overcooked.

For main we ordered chicken parmo. We have had parmos all over Boro and the north east and I can easily say that this was the worst. The chicken was very poor quality, cheap and rubbery. The bechamel sauce was over cooked and had therefore began to curdle, and there was so much cheap, greasy cheese on the top that the whole plate ended up swimming in a pool of grease. The chips were just cheap frozen French fries, not the nice home cooked chips that you get with most parmos in the area. Not good! We both ate less than quarter before feeling too sick to continue.

We decided to complain about the poor quality and the waiter, an older man, not sure of his name, was very rude. He argued that we were wrong and there was nothing wrong with it and 'that's how it's supposed to be' we told him we would pay for the starters and our drinks but not the main course and he made it very obvious that he was not happy. Terrible customer service. The main manager did resolve this for us professionally however.

Another concern, is a couple on a table behind us walked out without paying... probably because their food was terrible too! And we heard a waitress tell another waitress to 'put their dessert back in the fridge because theres no point wasting it' even though it had been served to the couple and then left on their table for some time. How do they know this was not touched? Not hygienic at all! So avoid the desserts!!

Overall I was very disappointed with this restaurant, definitely not worth the money, I will not be returning or recommending it to anyone I know. Olivellos down the road is 100 times better!
