We used to love this place. The first time we ventured in there in early 2008 we had lunch and the sauce was amazing as was the garlic bread. So last night my husband who has been on a strict diet wanted his italian fix. Boy were we disappointed.
First its not the best place to go if your trying to cut down your carbs I understand that.. but there was a new menu and all the single serving options were gone. So i had a choice of Chicken basically. $28.99 for a serving of 5 small (no bigger than the palm of my hand) pieces of pounded out dry overcooked chicken and 9.99 for a salad swimming in their oily vinagrette. My husband got a small serving of Past Alfredo (no meat) and a side of a meatball (which despite the teashirts worn by the staff were not larger than your head) and a side of hot sausage. He also got the garlic bread. Our bill was 98 dollars plus a tip. OMG. We do not like taking food home.
The first sign something had changed was the menu, the second was the small cheaper portions had disappeared and the third was their garlic bread came to our table in a basked butchered into little tiny pieces.
When we asked our waitress what happened to the garlic bread that usually is served in its baking sheet and hot and juicy she said they changed it and when we asked why we found out bucca di peppo was taken over by Planet Hollywood.
Its the last time we go there again. If i wanted to pay $110 for two ppl for dinner i will find some fantastically expensive seafood restaurant not some crappy italian wanna be chain restaurant.
Sorry but they lost 2 customers progress aint it grand. If youre in the mood for good italian we like Giseppi's. Privately owned fresh seafood and the best crepes around. And they are nice to you.
