We come to Italy at least once a year and this is hands down the worst dinner we've ever had in over 20 years. I have no idea how this restaurant has so many positive reviews.
First, our welcome. It was nonexistent. I'd read that from a couple of other reviewers but thought no, this is Italy. They're so warm, so welcoming always. But here, no. The girl looked as though we had interrupted her standing as she led us to an inside table even though outside tables were open and we asked for one. As the night progressed, they seemed to seat the foreigners inside.
Second, our order. The waiter arrived to take ours and before I could open my mouth, he began to make recommendations which is fine, but when you keep asking me if I want double order on everything we order, it's a little much. Plus, out of the 4 of us, two are vegetarians and he kept trying to sell us a meat plate. I felt like he wasn't trying to give us a nice experience but trying to make more money.
Third, my daughter ordered a tomato sauce dish and after delivering our starter, he advised us they were out of tomato sauce. At an Italian restaurant.
Fourth, when I asked for the gnocchi about which I'd read rave reviews, he talked me out of it and recommended a different 'homemade' pasta. I took his advice and there's no way it was homemade and neither was my husband's dish.
Fifth, the 'roasted' potatoes - if you pressed your fork on one, you literally squeezed oil out. They were probably microwaved old potatoes.
I will give them this - the wine was good.
When the bill came, the waiter brought complimentary limoncello (which we did not drink) and four glasses. My kids are 14 and 16. The waiter, when I told him we were unhappy with things, couldn't really be bothered.
Go anywhere else in this cute little town and you will feel more welcome and have a better meal. This was terrible and just disappointing when you're on vacation and hoping to have a nice meal and night with your family.
