Our starters were melanzane alla parmigiana and spaghetti vongole. The latter was good but, alas, the parmigiana was quite frankly the worst I've ever been served (and having sampled these all across Italy there seems to be an uncharacteristically wide remit of ingredients and techniques for this dish).
I should have told the waiter but, being hungry, I unwisely soldiered through a brick of cheap, solid, room-temperature mozzarella with the merest whisper of tomato and aubergine, coated in dry breadcrumbs. It didn't taste of much, wasn't juicy in the slightest, and the aubergine was virtually absent.
Our mains, the ray wing and the seafood linguini, were fine. Our bottle of wine was perfectly serviceable but expensive for what it was, and was served in a flexible transparent plastic wine bag.
We were a bit baffled as Mood pitches itself well above these standards. The waiter behaved as though he were at a Michelin starred restaurant – friendly enough but formal, somewhat at odds with the ordinary motley crew of customers, including us.
