Angelini Osteria--thumbs down in advance

ThatPat | Dec 3, 200510:36 PM

We originally were scheduled to go last Sunday but had to cancel. They called to confirm, I said let's do it next week. Fortunately, I found out that last week they had us down at the wrong time (off by 2 hours!). This week, since I hadn't heard from them, I called and heard that not only did they not have my name, but we were not even in their computer and that all they could do for us was the pizza counter or outside. The woman on the phone asked me if I remembered the name of the person who had called me from the restaurant!! Unreal--does she really think I spend my time remembering something like the name of a person who calls to confirm a reservation!! Anyway, I've heard the food is great but the 'tude is not. She was perfectly cordial but would not give us a table, and this was at 5:30, certainly early enough. So, I told her forget it. Okay, Chounders, you've been warned--Angelini is staffed with idiots. Caveat emptor (or whatever the Latin is for "one who reserves").
