I have just had a true restaurant nightmare. Having found our usual places closed for winter holidays we came across San Lorenzo. The menu looked interesting so we ventured in. We were relieved to find a few other diners at the back of the restaurant, and despite the chilly temperature in the dining room things began to look promising. The manager was then very helpful in selecting a rather nice bottle of wine from their extensive selection. But then the food arrived. A small plate of pasta that was supposed to have roasted tomato sauce, pesto and small squid, was dull with a tasteless sauce, tired squid and no sign of the pesto. A real miss. The main course did not fare much better. In the centre of a huge cold plate were some chickpeas with a tiny piece of cod that had been fried in black breadcrumbs. It was trying to be clever but tasted of cheap oil. The worst plate was the pudding. A tasting plate was offered promising panna cotta, tiramisu and a chocolate pudding. The panna cotta was an egg custard that had split, the tiramisu tasted frozen and shop bought and the chocolate cake was just nasty and artificial. But the worst shock of all came with the bill. We were charged 40 euros for our two puddings! When i complained about the price and the quality quite a scene broke out, with considerable abuse from the manager and a rant against english people. Eventually we paid for only one of the horrible puddings but we left with a very bad taste in our mouths. The worst restaurant experience I have ever had.
