There seems to have been a change of chefs, and gone are the days of an Italian chef working in the open kitchen. The Lasagna Rustica was layers of thick pasta laced with desi style mince sauce, the pasta stiff at the edges. It was a far cry from the lasagne I had eaten in St Petersburg that melted in your mouth. However, its Tagliatelle ai Funghi in white mushroom sauce was not bad. Its appetizers and salads are still good and fresh, but the quality of the main dishes varies.
While only two tables were occupied, the Italian supervisor hovering in the background made no attempt to ask how our food was. The service was good and responsive, but the quality of food has gone down. The heating was off in the Marriott and that didn’t help the experience.
