Welcomed to an empty restaurant and the owner's son looked at the empty tables and said he wasn't sure there was space. He then offered us a choice of three locations in the main room.
Long menu and complex and all things sounding very nice. Took advice from the same guy, who recommended a four course a la carte repas.
What a load of .......
Had better and more genuine food on the streets!
Cheesy potato croquettes over fried. Octopus rubbery. Pasta overcooked. Rare steak presented as medium and without resting.
Best dish was some shallow-fried fish, and this was because the fish itself tasted so good and hadn't been screwed around with by the gastronomic witches in the kitchen.
Flavours that did not compliment each other in single dishes and, catastrophe, poor levels of seasoning. Basic errors all over.
The dishes were presented well and dressed nicely, but the food on them was worthy of a slap-'em-out-fast and don't-bother-tasting kind of joint.
The restaurant wants to look like Michelin-starred joints, but doesn't do the taste. It's not just about what the stuff looks like.
Probably the best thing was being presented with a wine list on an iPad, and being able I look at the detail of the wine before selecting. Now that was good, and I would love to see that in other, better, restaurants.
Then the cost was €130 for 2, and they tried to overcharge for the wine (best thing we had there) by €3.
Don't waste your time and money here. If this is exemplary Neapolitan cuisinery, gawd help you!
