Christmas time, don't you love it? People in silly hats singing silly songs, and a new pair of socks from Grandma. And I guess you got to take what you get when you choose to dine in this period. Our visit to Pizza e Birra in late December left us all underwhelmed. Neither my main or entree were what was described in the menu yet the waiter didn't tell us of any changes. The medium-rare steak came out medium- well done. The kids pizzas were undercooked on top and burnt underneath. Our mains were served over ten minutes, in fact one couple had finished before the kids dinner arrived. The service was virtually non existent but at least they acknowledged this when we paid. Sure, they might have had trouble sourcing produce and staff in this period, but you got to serve what is listed on the menu and cook it properly! Other restaurants we sampled in St Kilda in this period were fully up to standard thus this one gets a poor rating from us.
