This is no longer the cheap little Italian gem it used to be.
9 of us who are semi regulars to this place were there just to catch up. The food was, on the whole very good. 8 people enjoyed their meals but 1 was very disappointed with theirs.
We had to call a waitress over to take our food orders after waiting over 20 minutes for service. Our orders were taken and we then waited an hour for our meals to arrive. They dribbled out of the kitchen and the first to get their meals where well and truly finished eating by the time the last meal arrived at the table. I could see no real reason for the extended wait times as the restaurant had other customers but wasn't, by any means, near full.
Our table was cleared and after another half an hour or so, we had to attract attention again to ask for the dessert menus. These were delivered but no staff member seemed interested enough to come back to take our order. After waiting another good 20 minutes, we finally decided that we didn't really want dessert after all. We would have gone elsewhere for dessert but by this time of night every other kitchen in the area would have been closed.
So, overall this place was a huge disappointment given that we have had wonderful experiences there in the past. When you combine the almost non existant food service (the drink service was adequate though), the fact that the serving sizes seem to have shrunk considerably since our last visit and that the prices for these servings have increased signficantly since our last visit, I am inclined to say that we not ever return here. This is a real shame because this place used to be a winner. Maybe increased popularity is having a negative effect..........something for the onwer to consider!
