Amore: Horrible Food and Even Worse Service

One of the worst dining experiences ever. Caesar salad has be pretty easy to make, right? Watery mayo with soggy croutons was all it tasted like. We then shared a pizza and veal parmigiana. Pizza was edible, but too soggy and not enough flavour.

The biggest problem was with the veal. It was tough and flavourless. But I was really incensed with the portion size. No joke, it was about 2 to 3 ounces of meat, and I'm being generous. It was $16.95.

My philosophy is, if you go to a restaurant and don't like the food, then keep your mouth shut and don't go back. But when you feel ripped off, it is imperative to let the management know.

So, I called the waiter over, had him look at the plate and asked him if this was a usual portion size. He told me he knows that a portion looks like and that's not it (if that's the case, I'm not sure why he brought it to me in the first place). He told me he would discuss it with the management When the bill came, the veal was there, for $16.95. I asked him what was up and he told me he would talk to the management again.

This time, the owner came over and asked me if there was a problem. I answered yes, and told him what had happened. He told me that he has been serving the veal that way for 13 years, and that if I didn't like it, I shouldn't come back. I told him that was not the right way to treat a customer and run his business and he turned back and told me that I keep quiet and not tell him how to run his business.

What an idiot. And lousy food too. Great combo.
