First I want to apologize for what my poor English, I'm still learning. So I go to the opinion. My beloved invited me to a birthday dinner in Bella Italia. Nice staff invited us to the table, thoughtful and sympathetically at the beginning ... we received a menu, after selecting waited for your order ... we waited 20 minutes, came the Lady with the service, placed my order and asked if it is possible to slightly increase the temperature (work all day at 19 degrees and it was definitely less in Bella Italia), you with the service that can not be snapped and walked away. Then, from the time of order we waited only 13 minutes for the delivery of beer (the restuarant was not very overloaded), and the beer was in a bottle, no lane also do not understand the delay.Ordered the cider, very popular here served with ice, which just does not convince me, sorry. Ms. without question cider poured into a glass with ice, or should not ask whether or not I want to drink with ice? Anyway, it was the smallest problem. We ordered starters and main course, side dishes delivered after 10 minutes (after beer), main dish after 40min of order. After all, a little too much. Well, we delivered our main dish on the table were cutlery (spoon and knife), on both sides, THERE WAS NO FORK. Do not mention the service each client cutlery, rather only what was used (fork)? And even going back to the cutlery, I do not know how it could be the case that the silverware was on a tissue (correctly)... Oh well ... let's get to eat lasagna and soup starters very good, now dish main ... with my hand breast of chicken with potatoes, breast good, but to me the potatoes undercooked, even bad, tragic.I understand, I am a Pole, I have several varieties of potatoes may taste different, but these were just awful! Meat, good. Let's move on to a portion of my partner, because it just should leave yourself for dessert ... unless ordered spaghetti very good, recommendable so much on her plate included macaroni PENNE, which was dry, cooked and tough, a long time ago .. . (willingly took the picture), also have such a question? How did you find it? Is pot the penne was not entirely washed, and there were some pasta used from the previous giving? probably in the kitchen ran out... Personally, I'm not a fan of writing in public opinion, but this evening struck me so much that I was compelled to write something more ... this was no ordinary evening, finally celebrated (sic), my birthday, certainly on long remember them ... And thank you for the time being of Italian cuisine, thanks to Bella Italia ....
