Mother's day lunch. Over $150 spent! Today I can't go to work. In the bathroom every 5 min. Husband got it last night. Both have cramps and diarrhea. We always liked this place. Last time we'll go. Our food took over an hour. Mine was mushroom stuffed... raviolli. Came out cold, looked old and dry, flat and hard and looked like throw up on a plate! I never complained ate it anyhow. Asked for extra cream sauce, was given watery wine sauce with barely cooked mushrooms that was room temp. Husbad had chicken marsala, his favorite! He said it was room temp not as good as usual. Mom had cold chicken breast and limp arugula. Mother in laws was cold. Son had slimy cold lasagna but had good flavor. Daughter had cold soups, tomatoe basil tasted like baby food, buisqe was blah and cold. We never complained. We had waited an hour to get our food and knew complaining wouldn't help and we didn't want to spend the entire day in there. Something wasn't right in the kitchen! Oh and olive oil the grave on table fire bread was totally nasty ants rancid tasting. They had tons of empty tables and lines of people waiting at the door. I wonder who else is spending this beautiful day on the toilet! Used to enjoy this place. SOMETHING MADE US SICK! | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Cramps
