My mom in law and I wanted some italian food while we were visiting Burlington. I did an internet search for Italian in the area and we decided on Bove's.
They don't serve garlic bread. What they have instead is regular slices of bread with the option to dip it in a bowl of oil and garlic. When I asked if they could toast the bread so that we could maybe spread some butter mixed with garlic on it, I was told
oh no, absolutely not." We should have left at that point.
I ordered the lasagna, it was ok, the bottom was burned and when I asked about it the not so nice young man serving us told me that's how it always is. "Dark, not burned." My mom in law ordered spaghetti with "meat sauce". What she got was spaghetti with what tasted like canned sauce and a meatball cut in half on the top. No parmesan cheese was available either.
We had to wait forever for refills and when we got our servers attention and asked, he just looked at us, picked up our glasses and walked away. He brought our drinks back after we reminded him twice. The entire time we could see him leaning against the counter with another employee talking and laughing. They also only take cash or Vermont issued checks. I feel this should be posted on the window or on the menu somewhere. We were told there was an ATM down the block but it was currently out of service. Luckily we had just enough cash between us to pay for our food.
Maybe it was just an off day, but we will not be going back.
