Bad experience - Il Centro

Sad to say, because I love their pizza, I will not be returning to Il Centro after my experience there on Friday. I went in at 12.10 alone and asked for a table for one, only for the manager (at least that's who I assume it was, he seems to have been in charge the times I've been there) to tell me that he only had tables for two and four available (which I could see - there were 2 table for two and 1 for four free). He didn't even bother to pretend that they were reserved. I realise that they typically only open for lunch and need to make as much money as possible during that time, but I don't still don't think this is acceptable, maybe others would disagree? Part of the the charm of Il Centro for me was that it is so different from the Stephen's Ave/corporate Calgary places where you know your bank balance is being assessed when you walk in the door...Apart from being generally rude, it struck me as pretty silly as I am very obviously pregnant and eating more than enough for two people!
