I had the worst Palo Alto dining experience at Cafe Fino last night. It started off strong with an excellent yet small cup of French Onion soup, but it went downhill from there. I waited 30 minutes between getting the soup and the next item, my lasagna. When the lasagna came, it looked terrible. I didn't resemble lasagna, just a mass of tomato sauce and meat. And it didn't taste that great either -- I think they bought it from Costco and microwaved it. After I was thoroughly displeased with my entree, I just wanted to get out of there as quickly as possible. However, it took another 10 minutes between asking for the check and actually getting it -- even though there were plenty of wait staff and very few customers.
There are a lot of bad things about this restaurant -- incompetent staff, slow kitchen, terrible food. I would never go to this place again.
Pros: incompetent staff, slow kitchen, terrible food
Cons: live music was ok
