We should have been suspicious to see a totally empty restaurant at the most crowded piazza in... More

We booked a day before and arrived for our 9pm meal. By 10pm we had been told there was no wine list and we had received one starter. We cancelled the rest of our order but they still tried to over charge us. What a waste of a Saturday night. Fuming!
