So I just called there asking for a reservation, and the guy who picked up the phone just asked me how many people the reservation was for. I said 2, and he just said "Just come any time", and hung up.
WTF? That's just plain rude, and if you're not going to listen to your prospective customer, why even bother asking how many people? Just tell them that you don't want their business.
I want to have a nice evening out with my wife at an Italian place, so is too much to ask for that there be seats reserved for me when I get there?
Learn some manners, seriously.
