We decided to try this new restaurant shortly after it opened it used to be an Indian restaurant called Sspice,we arrived on time, the waiter could not find out table but we found the name on the table,we sat down and waited a long time and had to ask for a menu and water, Steaks were $39, Gnocchi was $29, Pizzas were up to $29, we decided pizza would be our choice plus a salad to share it was also awful and out of a bag, well after a long wait it arrived dripping with cheese, pale in colour an raw underneath, we took two pieces
ate them an called the waiter, the pizza was taken away for more cooking, and was not better on its return, we opened our wine to fill in time, finally the lady in charge of the desk came over and was less than helpful, we asked to pay and were told $20 was the amount we owed, this has to be the poorest example of an Italian restaurant we have ever been to.We noted people departing had left a lot on their plates while we were waiting for our meal .
