PIADINA: Needs a little help...

Hello Kitty! | Jan 5, 2005 10:07 AM

This little restaurant definitely has charm and romantic lighting. But our server was an absolute ZOMBIE (charm = -4)!

Now, I can understand if a place is packed and the waitstaff is busy: I don't expect them to stand around, chatting with me. But it was Monday night, and the place was almost empty!

Anyway, the food was just adequate. The red wine by the glass, so-so.

We had the mussels (okay) and gnocchi (filling, but not great).

Again, the place itself is cute. They need to inject a little life in the staff, because the food itself is not going to save this place!
