Bad experience at Collima's in Rice Village, Houston

My husband and I took his sisters to eat at Collima's last Thursday night and it was not a pleasant experience. It was so loud that we had to shout at each other even sitting at a small table. The service was very slow and the food was mediocre. I got a "designer" salad priced at $7.99 which was nothing more than a small handful of mesclun, 4 slices of pear, four canned mandarin orange slices and a sprinkling of pecans all drowned in dressing. Granted, I should have asked for the dressing on the side but forgot. The sisters each ordered pasta with eggplant, peppers and tomato sauce. It was so spicey that they hardly ate any. The eggplant was undetectable. My husbands eggplant parmigiana was good tho skimpy. The focaccia was excellent, however. So much for a pleasant evening out.
