Manicomia – if you take out the ‘omia’ the ‘Manic’ was certainly our experience yesterday! Everything one and everything was buzzing, the sun was shining and the bottle of rose we selected was a dream but oh dear, it all started to go wrong. After a very long wait and nearly ready to order our second bottles of water and wine the main courses arrived. Woops they forgot to give us our starter, the reknowned antipasta, our waiter denied that we had ordered a starter but was encouraged to check his order book to find that we had indeed asked for one. We said no major problem declined the offer of just having our main courses and the wait began. We waited and waited, dish after dish of antipasta passed by us but one never stopped at our table despite pointing out that an hour later we had not eaten. Finally it arrived, gorgeous, mouth watering choice of goodies. Duly satisfied our main course arrived I had delicious veal on a bed of lettuce with asparagus etc. but it was cold. This was blamed on the poor salad underneath, we thought it was our original served up dish being returned to us. Needless to say hot, warm or cold it was divine. The red mullet was also greatly appreciated. Oh! they forgot to give us our rocket and parmesan salad. We were served with the best biscotti we have ever had with our coffees (of which we need two, as you can imagine after two bottles of wine!).
Will we return – you bet, we love the place and will always remember our adventure yesterday with fond memories and our thanks to the Manager who was excellent in sorting everything out.
