Uva review - good food and space, surly service

KikiLee | Aug 1, 2005 07:11 PM

Went to Uva two Fridays ago. Sat in the back garden, which was lovely. Ordered 6 primi and 2 desserts for the three of us. All OK-to-great, with the sardines and the truffle chisolino as standouts. Had a bottle of Lambrusco, which was fun.

Main problem was the service. Our server was brusque and downright surly. And he seemed to have no knowledge of the wines, beyond a VERY basic understanding of what type of wine. (yes, a rose is pink, but no, it is not necessarily "like a white zinfandel.") He seemed not to know the individual wines on the list at all, nor did he offer to get someone who did. (yes, we should have asked, but he was already so unfriendly...) Unacceptable in a place that bills itself as a wine bar.

The hostess, on the other hand, was perfectly lovely, and the owner (I think) was charming.

Will try it once again, to see if it was an off-night, but they only get one more chance.
