We visited Bella Italia at 6.00 on a Sunday evening to find them fully booked; having geared up for a Lasagne, we opted for Zizzi around the corner.
I will keep this brief; an excellent Lasagne, served with garlic bread with Mozzarella and caramelized onions;
The service however was accompanied with perhaps the worst attitude I have ever experienced in a restaurant.
What draft beer do you have ?
Nuuuuuuthing . . . . accompanied with a bored look and a gaze out of the window into middle distance.
Cue the next 45 minutes trying to get her attention for drinks re-fills, with lots of arm in the air and swiveling around on our seats.
On paying the bill, our Daughter offered her Cineworld card which gives her 25% off . . .
This is out of date; cannot accept.
No it's not; please try it and see.
Yes it is; I cannot accept.
Etc, etc for 20 minutes . . .
She finally reluctantly tries the card; it works fine, and takes £13 off the bill.
Did we use some of it as a tip ?
No; we put it towards our next visit to the excellent Bella Italia, where the service may on occasions be slow, but is always with a smile.
And an ice cold beer- on draft
