After a long day, we were coaxed in by a waiter and thought it couldn't be so bad to eat here. I mean how bad could pasta be? Terrible, is the answer.
The waiter, who wasn't Italian just like the rest of the workers in the restaurant, was extremely rude. He kept walking away while we were trying to order to try to coerce people in off the street. When he returned to take our order he never apologized - although he'd walked away quite a few times.
We ordered antipasti all'italiana which was some luncheon meat and sawn-off chunks of mature cheddar for about 12 Euros. It did have some 2 small slices of nice salami on it, however, so I can't give it the worst review. We also ordered gnocchi with tomato sauce and bolognese lasagne.
We waited quite a long time for the food and was surprised that what came out had took so long.
The gnocchi was the worst I have ever tried. The gnocchi pieces themselves were OK. Not cooked perfectly, but edible. But the sauce was terrible. Dog food. Microwaved. Canned. Processed, over-reduced. Lumpy.
The lasagne I'm told tasted alright, but was STONE COLD in the middle. I wouldn't have minded waiting so long, but for cold food? Why are they trying to get anyone off the street if they can't manage the customers they do have? Everyone eating there looked miserable.
At the end, one of the waiters came to ask my sister out for drinks. Later, another one came over to try to ask us out for drinks and the original waiter said loudly in Italian to him (as if we couldn't understand) that "these two aren't interested". Just a bit disrespecful!
You may be tempted to come here for cheap eats, but it really isn't that cheap when you think about it. A redeeeming feature could be that it is a handy area and the general atmosphere of the street is busy, it's nice that they have outdoor seating.
