    1) Restaurant entrance underneath prominent sign board of previous steakhouse 2) welcoming staff member did not ask about our booking and just told us to sit "anywhere" 3) We were asked about our choice of drinks but had to specifically request a drinks menu first before we could learn what was available 4) when asked whether there were preservatives in the fruit juice or whether it was "pure" , the waiter seemed lost until we asked whether he could find out whereupon he brought us the container and we could ascertain for ourselves that there were indeed preservatives in the juice. The drinks arrived with opened plastic straws (two minus points) 5) sensing that we should be careful, we ordered a pizza to share. When we were told that it was a problem because it was a folded pizza (not indicated as such on the menu), we indicated that we would nevertheless cut it in half. 6) While waiting for the pizza, a huge tin of imported pecorino sauce was placed in the middle between us in case we wanted to buy some. We moved it towards the side of the table to continue with our conversation. 7) 30 minutes after arrival a lit candle was placed on the table 8) the music had a nonspecific beat that was audible, but definitely not Italian 9) when the pizza arrived on a cold plate, the dough was similar to the dough used for chicken pies, something we have not encountered in a pizza before 10) we were looking forward to "dolce" and wanted (as a first try) to share the recommended Nutella pancake which we assumed may come without the Cointreau. The order was then taken, but another waiter later came to tell us that it was not possible to order that dessert on the specific day. 11) A disappointment was that there did not appear to be a competent floor manager who could light a fire of efficiency against this background. Training of staff also requires attention. These comments are aimed to assist and not to degrade.
