My partner and I dined here on a Thursday around 5pm, there were only 2 other tables occupied. Because of this i expected great service and nice food, unfortunately we had to wait 7 - 10mins to be seated by a miserable waitress that went on to shout accross the restaurant to other team members about what they were doing that weekend, when they finished work etc etc!! There was no personality when serving us, she asked one word quetions "pepper?" with no smile, we both felt rather rushed in and out of our seats. After waiting some time my partners king prawn pasta was served, I chose a starter of ribs as a main with a side of mashed potato as i found the menu rather uninspiring and was disappointed with my choice before I had even been served. My partner was slightly disappointed at the lack of king prawns in his "King Prawn Pasta" and they also had heads left on, which didnt bother him too much but he did comment that it would be better without. What did bother him was the oily greasyness of the food. I do appreciate Italian food tends to be garnished with olive oil, however this left a puddle of grease at the bottom of the bowl and was bland and flavourless. My ribs had soft meat which fell apart and would have been lovely if it wasnt for the thick rich sauce, I could only eat 2 after scraping off much of the sauce. Mash was lacking in flavour. We shared a side of garlic bread with cheese, this was dripping in grease so much that the wafer thin base had holes in, hard to even pick up. I had to find the waitress who was in the bar area to ask for another drink. Wasnt asked how our meals were. There was a bar man with a bald head that was very nice but he wasnt our server. The restaurant had no atmosphere. I was and still am annoyed at the price of the bill as we left still hungry and my partner commented we would have been better with the adjacent McDonalds, which was very true! I will not be going back.
