I heard this place was not the greatest food so had to check it out for myself
This is exactly my experience:
Walked in the door, no body opened it for me -- it was raining and quite windy outside .. I made the effort to come to their restaurant you think someone could have opened that big door which the wind was trying to shut as I was trying to open.
There was no hostess to great me, I thought Italian was all about the "Family"
We got seated fairly quick because it was a Tuesday and 1/2 the restaurant was empty at 7PM
Sat there for about 10 minutes, no bread !!! Where the hell is the bread, where is my water.
I had to wave the waiter to come over for us to order, I ordered spaghetti and meatballs and side of grilled greens.
The food came in about 17 minutes, still no fresh baked bread, olive oil, balsamic....which is a staple in Italy -- was I suppose to order this and pay extra ???
Got my main course: meatballs looked great, but first thing I noticed is not much tomato sauce, I bit into one, WOW was it spicy, never had one this spicy before, didnt like it and the texture was abnormal it was fine ground meat. Tried my greens dish, never had much flavour and was 1/2 potato wedges??? huh
Also, the waiter took my umbrella and put it where other umbrellas are located, there much have been 20 of them... where was mine ??? I had to sort through them, about 4 looked the same, I grabbed the wrong one, then had to head back and look again till found my umbrella, while they were looking at me like I was trying to take an extra umbrella....... why didnt a hostess or waiter bring my umbrella ??
There you have it, never going back, Don Francescos much better a few blocks away if you want good food and to be greeted properly, fine wine selection
