Where to start....., I shall try and keep this brief.
First time admittedly I entered the restaurant later than normal about 10pm I ordered the Squid, whilst it tasted (Just about ok) it was neither made fresh to order nor fresh in the building. I could have used this to replace the front tyres on my car!
Main course of Mushroom risotto...way off the mark, this resembled a porridge? with some lightly sautéed mushrooms thrown in for good measure...where's the passion.
I also ordered Peroni..one of the most famous beers of Italy, I got given some other rubbish which wasn't even worth remembering, when I queried the restaurant I was advised the beer I wanted was out of stock and this was a substitute?
Last time I worked in a bar, everything you sold had to be listed under the licensing and trade descriptions act.
Then a week later a friend announced they had a groupon voucher for £45 of food and drink with the only stipulation being you paid and extra £3 for fillet beef dishes.
On turning up and sitting down I ordered a bottle of Chianti for £18.95 and was then brought the bottle for £26.95 I turned this down then was told I couldn't order wine by the bottle as in the fine print it stated 'wine by the glass only'....this it wasn't and since I have taken this up with Groupon.
Following my discussions in the restaurant. The 'owner' came out and had a 'chat' with me in the loudest voice possible so loud the entire restaurant was looking over at me (I could have died!) he then returned offering me the telephone number for his Groupon representative for me to settle the dispute that a) wasn't even in black and white and b) he should have checked before coming over!
So eventually I settled on Mussels for starters...like rubber bullets hard and out the deep freezer..Supposed to be fresh (it's October we are in season for mussels). They were over cooked to boot with a heavily herb seasoned sauce. Average at best.
Next up fillet Rossini...The meat itself was very nice and cooked to a good standard, the sauce was Bovrill and cheap red wine, the pate was bland and the vegetables over cooked.
On top of this yet again they brought a different 'Italian' larger to the table despite asking for Peroni.
I didn't have the heart or the stomach to ask for a dessert menu.
All in all a very poor experience you could do better eating out of a supermarket basics range.
Please avoid this restaurant so save your own sanity...There are far better in town and I have eaten in them.
