Does anybody know if Lambrettas have re-opened? I was going to give them the benefit of the doubt and make a booking for dinner there but the phone number I have off one of their flyer menus seems to have been disconnected and when I do a White Pages search for an alternative nothing comes up under Lambretta at Kaleen.

Sounds right, according to a friend who worked there, the previous owners fled the country without telling staff. That is probably why that happened.

I have some nostalgia towards the place though – mainly because my year 6 graduation dinner was held there, though that was probably because the entrance to the school I was attending at the time was approximately 10 metres away.

I was just saying to Mrs Deref that we needed to try it. I’m glad we didn’t.

I ate here 2 weeks ago and felt a little crook afterwards but figured it was coz I indulged in dairy. Hope it wasn’t due to their pending red sign.

However I do remember the new owner telling us they have had alot of trouble since taking over as the previous owner owed lots of money to various suppliers. He said the worst was coming back to work over Easter to find his power had been shut off and all his food ruined.

We actually used to go here a fair bit when it was the Italian Kitchen. Had the best herb crusted lamb racks there once. We went last week and was so disappointed. The service and atmosphere was terrible, couldn’t even complain to anyone at the end because there was no-one there in charge. The food was actually alright but now seeing the infamous red notice I have to wonder and worry. After last weeks experience we wouldn’t go back, the red notice confirms it.
