There a fantastic Piccolino at Collingham (Wetherby), and I recall the one at Newcastle being very good too, but this one doesn't hold up its end of the bargain.
The location is great, the staff and service excellent, but my food ... while it looked the part ... was pretty tasteless.
I hardly touched my Bruschetta, it was an enormous pile of chopped tomatoes on one quite hard piece of toasted bread - no garlic, no seasoning, no flavours, no life!
My main, the prawn linguine wasn't much better. The prawns were ok, but the rest of the dish lacked any flavour ... just the parmesan that was added. No chilli, no garlic, just bland.
Once again the staff were great and service was too - the bruschetta was removed from my bill without my knowing.
This sounds a bit brutal but the only thing that needs to be changed here is the chef who cooked my food!
