Can dinner be any worse? (Probably not)

Words cannot describe how horrible my experience was at Teodora. First, my party was scolded at 5:30 pm for not having made a reservation, when there were only 2 other couples there. Second, it took us 20 minutes to get anyone's attention. Third, after pointing at an entree on the menu and making my best attempt to pronounce it, I was given the wrong dinner. It took three different people to figure this conundrum out, and when our own waiter finally deigned to ask what was wrong, he (literally) shouted at me and insisted I was the one at fault. So, maybe it was the humiliation and anger that made my dinner taste so terrible (so salty, it's a surprise I didn't have a coronary), but maybe not. Would have had a better time, and meal, at McDonald's, and saved $40. Don't go here, unless you enjoy being treated like an idiot by an incredibly inept staff.

What a lovely little Italian treat. Pastas are delicious with emphasis on the sauces, especially the sausage and pepper sauce, and Bolognese. Appetizers are large and can be shared. Shrimp with cannoloni in olive oil a must. Friendly and gracious service.

I have been to Italy many times and no other restaurant in NYC gets as close as this one to the real thing

  • 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.
