Bebo is Disgraceful

It was my second time in 5 months to dine at Bebo. Both times I had bad experiences. It has been 3 weeks and I have not gotten any kind of response to the self explanatory email. Obviously the restaurant is run by people who dont care about hospitality, the industry or the people who pay their bills.

" Roberto Donna, Management or to whom it may Concern,

I was reluctant to write an email to share my dining experience this past Sunday evening, however, after a few days passing I feel compelled to do so. I was going out on a date and had been craving risotto all day. I remembered a great risotto I had at Galileo and thought that Bebo would be worth the 30 minute drive to get a simply prepared, satisfying dish. In between water glasses being set and water being poured, I had plenty of time to notice both had lipstick stains. Problem fixed with two new, non matching glasses. I asked for a wine list and picked out a bottle of Friuli. I was then informed Bebo was out of not only the bottle I chose, but of all the Friuli on the wine list. So I was recommended a Trebbiano d Abruzzo. Different grape and region, but satisfying even with the chipped wine glass I received. Bebo was also out of both Prosciuttos that you offer on the menu. The fried Zucchini Blossoms were tasty but small in portion, and the asparagus risotto was a major disappointment. Well cooked, but poorly made. The rice had nice texture but the only flavor on the entire plate was the little bit of Parmesan that was sprinkled around it. Tasted as if it had been cooked with water and no salt.

Thank you for your attention to this Email. As I stated earlier I was hesitant to send a complaint, but I felt you should be aware of the everyday happenings at your tables."
