Service SNAFU at Celestino's

On Saturday night four of us went to Celestino's in Pasadena for dinner. We had to ask repeatedly for a fourth place setting. And while the entrees we had were delicious - they forgot to bring our appetizer, soup, and salad! When the waiter brought our entrees we told him what had happened and all he said was "Oh - I'll get them". A few minutes later, the calamari arrived, but the soups and salads never did. Some time after that two desserts (that we didn't order) arrived.

By the way - our entrees were osso bucco, filet mignon ravioli, linguini with langostino and pumpkin tortelloni. The desserts were a panna cotta and some kind of dry white cake.

Not sure if this was just an off night or a sign of things to come. On my previous visits the service has been fine. Has this happened to anyone else?
