I just went to Penne Pomodoro to have an early dinner with my boyfriend. We went there because the reviews said it was good. Only two out of seven are displayed by the way. When you first walk in the atmosphere is calm and inviting and it smells great, just like an Italian restauraunt should. Ny boyfriend and I ordered a cup of mushroom soup for starters, and we also got some bread wich is complimentary. The bread had a huge black, hairy mold spot on it. This is not good. So I push it aside and begin on my soup wich looks like grey chunky couscous floating around in some kind of cream sauce. I felt like I had swallowed a whole bottle of garlic salt. When the waiter finally came back we pointed out the bread, no apology, no nothing. Then my eggplant parmigan came out. It looked like It had been frozen then microwaved. When I ate it it was overcooked, chewy and definately not worth 14 dollars. the noodles were undercooked I was utterly dissapointed. \r
They have a nice open kitchen but despite the pictures you see in previous reviews there are no chefs there and no is in uniform. The cooks look like they are getting ready to go to a rock concert. No one smiles or barely talks to you, the service is poor and they were not busy. In fact we were the first ones there for dinner.\r
This is not an affordable place either. There were no dollar anythings. No deals like mentioned in the previous statements. My bill came out to 42.27 for moldy bread 2cups grainy soup and 2 small badly cooked meals( and that was supposedly a cheap meal)\r
I feel like I need to go to a clinic and get a lab analysis done.
