Tutti Matti

Food: B+
Service: B+
Experience: A

We started with Insalata del Matti which wonderfully tastey. For mains, the Talapia al Cartoccio, Braciola di Maiale alla Griglia were excellent as were the desserts, Chocolate Mousse, and Summer Fruit Crumble. The place is very friendly and waiters cordial. This place definitely won us over and we will be back for a regular meal.

Dreadful. We had to wait 15 minutes before anyone noticed us at the table. When then had an interminable wait after we ordered. The food was virtually tossed in front of us, the waiter unsure about who got what. They waiters never filled out empty water glasses or inquired about how the meal was. To top it off, my sirloin strip was cold. As for the food – downright poor. We started with Octopus Salad, which was so-so but too oily. The Caramelized New York Strip was blah. I didn’t both sending it back to be heated because it probably wouldn’t have improved it much. Wild Shrimp Risotto was gritty and had none of creaminess of a proper risotto. For dessert, the Fresh Raspberry Mousse was a tiny portion of insipid ooze. The Chocolate Cake was Sara Lee level. It was by far the worst ‘Licious meal I’ve had and one of the worst ever in that level of restaurant.
