I have never taken the time out before to write a review of a restaurant, however after the frankly shocking experience myself and a friend had in La Pizzeria yesterday, I felt this needed to be shared so people can avoid this place like the plague.
On entry to the restaurant we were not greeted in the friendly manner you expect from any time of restaurant, there was a great deal of space free however it still took approximately 5 minutes for us to be acknowledged and seated. As we had a friend joining later we decided to just share a salad before they arrived and on trying to make an order we had to ask twice. The first occasion we asked one girl to take our order, apparently she doesn't take orders but there was 3 of them standing there doing nothing and we had to asked again. This time it was the owner that took our order, but also gruffly asked when the third member of our party would be joining. We were then moved to another table without being asked if we wanted to move, when requested that we hold onto the menus as we would be ordering mains once the additional person joined, we were refused this. (the restaurant had a lot of free space)
So we ordered a Caprese salad to share, and when it arrived the portion was not what I would expect a £10 caprese to be, literally 4 pieces of mozzarella and a tomato quartered in a bowl that was full of rocket. I’m not Italian, but I’ve never had a caprese like this before.
We tucked in anyway, and suddenly I came across a big black hair in my salad, we called the owner over to let him know what I found, and his response was “what’s the problem”? We replied with the fact that finding a big hair in your food when you’re paying for it is quite a big problem to which his response was
“clearly you are just here to cause problems”. Following this statement we were both in shock and left.
In summary RUDE Staff, RUDE Owner, and Vile attitude in this “restaurant”. Take a trip if you would enjoy the extra nourishment that a human hair offers in your food, and don’t expect an apology.
