Needs Some Work to be Better than Average
Arrived on a Friday just after 5pm without reservations to find one other table occupied. We had been seated for 10 minutes when another couple was seated directly next to us, even though there were 23 or so other tables open, plus an adjourning patio seating!
Mia was our server. We had to ask if there were any dining specials, which there wasn't. Hubby ordered a menu item and she quickly grabbed the menu stating that they stopped serving that entree and the menu was outdated and then returned with another menu.. We ordered a bottle of wine and after it was corked and poured, we did all the other pours.
Compliment focaccia was served with balsamic vinegar and olive oil dispenser on the table for dipping, which we poured ourselves and no offer of fresh cracked pepper. The served focaccia was badly burnt and tasted horrible, even after dipping.
Our bruschetta appetizer was very good.
I order chicken piccata which was accompanied with a side of my choice, which I chose bake ziti. Truthfully, the ziti was excellent and I had wished that was my entire entrée. The piccata was watery, but had a good flavor. Sparse with mushrooms and artichokes.
Hubby did find something on the menu that wasn't discontinued - lasagna. It looked wonderful and he was very pleased with it.
We selected the carrot cake for dessert and it was very good.
With tip $120, so when it comes to great Italian restaurants in SA with better service, food, and bottled wine selection, we won't be spending any more of our $ at Di Frabo.
