Balena was my reliable go-to restaurant before Steppenwolf. Our last two meals were really disappointing. During the last dinner, we ordered the burrata, which had no creamy center and little flavor. Pasta course was good but then the short ribs were actually dry. Dessert good. That's a 50% success, not good enough for the price. A friend had a similar experience. Has the chef changed in the last few months? Have others been disatisfied too? A shame. I really liked this restaurant.
