Review of Hostaria Mazzei in Port Chester

mikesown | Jul 16, 200709:38 PM     5

Here's how the meal went

"Appetizer"(not really an appetizer, but bread and butter) - Fantastic. The bread was hot and fresh; the breadsticks were also fresh and made with rosemary. Butter was clearly hand made, and was delicious. A+ for the bread and butter.

Entree - I got the veal. It was OK. Not the best meal I've ever had, but not the worst. I'd give this a B+.

Desert - I got a chocolate cake. It was horrendous. It tasted like it had just been defrosted from some frozen desert in the supermarket.

My brother got the sorbet. This was the worst part of the meal. It was LTIERALLY from Costco. They just fluffed up the top and made it wavy. What kind of restaurant serves something DIRECTLY from Costco? Seriously, this is a new low for restaurants.

Overall, I probably wouldn't go back, as the desert aspect put me off so much. The fact that a restaurant would even think of using prepared foods from costco is just frightening.

I hope that Alba's is better.
