Great pre theatre venue

We had entrees and mains. Our entrees were nice, especially the wagu sausage. However, our mains were very disappointing. My husband ordered a lamb dish which was so salty he did not enjoy it and didn't eat all of it. I ordered a pasta special which was supposed to have crispy prosciutto, rocket and a couple of other things. The pasta was quite gluggy and the sauce was all at the bottom. The dish was primarily pasta with very little sauce and I did not eat it. It was about $30 and certainly not worth half that.
Hi Betsy, Thanks for your feedback and we're sorry you did not enjoy your dining experience. I have spoken to the waitress and duty manager on the night and they were aware of the problem. They did offer to make another meal but I can understand you did not want to make any fuss. I know we offered drinks on the house but unfortunately, a bad judgment call was made and we should have taken your meal off the bill. I will call you to discuss. Kindest regards, Paul Scidone Manager

I ordered the risotto which was way over cooked and very lumpy, fortunately it did have some flavour. Our waitress was inattentive and idily walked by our table several times without clearing away our finshied plates. Finally another waitress that was attending another area of the restaurant walked by and cleared our table for us.
Hi Rosy, Thanks very much for your feedback. Apologies for the lack of attention yesterday. Unfortunately, your waitress was a little ill yesterday and not her usual self and as a consequence, off today. Hope to see you soon. Kindest regards, Paul Scidone Manager
