I had the unfortunate experience of eating in Berri's Pizza Cafe (on 3rd) tonight. I've had their pizza delivered before, but this was my first time in the restaurant.

When we first sat down, my daughter asked for water, and the waiter asked, "flat or bubbles". He was going to bring her an un-asked for bottle of Evian. My kid doesn't know! I thought the waiter was being deceptive.

She ordered pizza, and I ordered linguini with clams. I never thought to ask if the clams were fresh. I love this dish, and the last 20 times I've asked I've been told of course they're fresh. BIG MISTAKE.

The waiter plopped down a bowl of linguini topped with chopped clams out of the can! It smelled disgusting and looked inedible. I sent it back. The waiter brought me a menu, asked if I'd like anything else, and then disappeared for over 10 minutes. (The place was empty) By that time I had shared some of my daughter's pizza and decided not to order.

They did NOT take the linguini off my bill. And as I left the waiter rushed over to the table to make certain I'd paid.

Rude and disgusting. I will not be back.
