I found myself in little Italy after having an amazing meal at The Peeking Duck (motts ave) in Chinatown. Casa Bella struck me as being a tourist trap however my mom was tired and neeed to rest so in we went. Now as an Italalian American myself i am weary of Italian joints in touristy areas but like i said my mom was tired. Well what a pricey mistake that was. All we wanted was desert and a drink. My mom got a slice teramisu and a cappacino and I got a slice of teramisu and a glass of milk. The drinks were good but then again its kind of hard to mess up milk. The slices of teramisu did not taste like teramisu and I know what it is supposed to tastes like. However the biggest shock of the night was the few cents off from 35 dollar bill. Yep that's right 35 dollars for 2 drinks and 2 small slices of I don't know what.
Another thing that ticked me off was the added 5 dollar tip. I have no issue tipping but 5 bucks for someone plopping down two slices of cake for two people and trust me that was the extent of the service is silly.
Advice: find an authentic family owned restaurant elsewhere in city.
