This is not my first time at this place and it USED to be excellent before the menu change that the chain saw over the past year. I figured I would give it one last try. How disappointing. First, if you loved the old menu, forget it...nothing remains. It's now far overpriced and underportioned tappas and tiny thin-crust pizzas with an asinine price. Service is slow as well...taking forever to bring out the bread..which also seems to have changed, and not for the better. I ordered the Carmela's Chicken. It arrived moderately warm, while the others I was with had piping hot dishes. The pasta was dry and undercooked and whatever sauce there should have been was so overcooked there was no sauce left since it had been soaked up by the dry pasta. The portion of chicken within the dish was scant, as were the supposed mushrooms and onions that were downright hard to find.
There is no excuse for this. Pasta is one of the least cost ingredients, and chicken breast wholesale is not expensive enough to short the serving size that much. So...overall, this place is a stinker and not worth ever returning. Too bad...they took what wasn't broken and broke it completely. Oh...and do note that if you show up with a group, there will be a tip included without anyone telling you up front that it'll be there.
