Awful, Just Awful.............WORST NYC Restaurant Experience in My 20+ Years

Poor service, mediocre food (vs. its peer group) and a terrible attitude by help and the maitre d', how does this over-rated Italian restaurant survive? Way past its prime, and there are so many better Italian eateries, diners should just say NO, and move on.

Went there for dinner and was excited having seen Zagat ratings touting the place as romantic, charming etc. with wonderful Italian food. Hated the claustophobic, tiny and dark room with uber-cramped tables, and, nasty hanging lamps with croched doilies hang over some tables. Everyone else can hear your conversation. Would have let that pass if the food was great, which it wasn't. Had sauteed artichoke as appetizer, for about $15 it was nice but no more than that, and had no discernable flavor. Black handmade pasta with shrimp was very pedestrian, with 5 small shrimp. Tiramisu was forgettable. I could have gotten a much tastier meal, of much better value in much more pleasant surroundings at the Cheesecake Factory

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
