I dined in Amico Bio in January. I was new to Groupon and received vouchers for a deal. My friends had been travelling over the christmas period so thought it a great idea to meet up somewhere and catch up over a meal somewhere new. My husband and I are vegetarians; we love good food and love trying new restaurants. As any vegetarian will know, creating a meal is about spice and flavour and creativity. Never have I tasted more bland, plain, dull and unattractive food in a restaurant IN MY LIFE. By far the worst dish at the table was the mushroom pasta- basically dish water would most likely have more flavour- truly appalling.Cold and congealed. Service was disgraceful- always a different waitress who seemed clueless when asking about the menu- luckily we were catching up with friends as we had a lot to talk about- as the meal took over an hour after the starters came!!! Not only that, it was delivered by a filthy handed, sweaty and angry looking chef with no explanation of the meals. Prior to us arriving, we were late due to train failure. Our friends had been waiting for us at the table, and were the only people in the restaurant. They had tried time and time again to get the attention of someone to serve them a drink while they were waiting, which took 20 MINUTES!!! That in my book is disgraceful- it may be cheap but that doesn't mean the service should be like this. In fact there are so many better vegetarian places to eat that I'm surprised they haven't lifted their game. DINERS BEWARE- in summary, Amico BIO might be just the thing for you if you enjoy sweaty and angry slow service followed by cold, congealed dish watery fodder- I wouldn't feed it to my dog.
