Osteria Basilico

From blog.mawi.co.uk

The waitor looked at me like I was talking Chinese when I asked for a Campari spritz. They eventually bought me Campari soda. They have procesco on the menu.

Scamorza affumicata con Funghi misti e Prosciutto di Parma
Char-grilled smoked Mozzarella served with Wild Mushrooms on a Bed of Parma Ham.
The entree was everything I love about Italian food, simple great ingredients. A great salty cured ham, mushrooms in a rich olive oil, chewy mozzarella.

Mezze Maniche con Melanzane, Pomodoro e Mozzarella
Pasta Tubes with Aubergines, Mozzarella Cheese, Basil, and Tomato Sauce.
The pasta was incredibly bland, the sauce was watery and lacked seasoning, it was too simple and without depth. The tomatoes lacked sweetness, they weree fresh when I think canned would have been a way better option.

Service was below par, surly and with no consistent waiter, for a tiny place it felt like 9 people served us.

Sin Cojones!
