Just a quick whinge/warning………
Last Friday at lunchtime my better half and I decided to try Sogno D’Oro which was once Musica e’ in Belconnen.
I had relatively high hopes for this restaurant as I was a big fan of Musica e’ and regularly ate there.
Unfortunately my high hopes were immediately put to rest when our four slices of Italian bread came out ½ an hour after ordering. Ok I said to myself it’s only bread who cares.
Another ½ hour later came the gnocchi ordered by my partner. Count them 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11 pieces of gnocchi, 11 pieces of gnocchi for $16 in a piss weak sauce.
Then my pizza arrived. I’m not the biggest fan of cardboard based pizza and for $21
I could have bought 4 of those frozen McCain’s pizzas from the supermarket and would have had an easier time cutting and eating the base than I did with this pizza. The topping of the pizza was burnt and the cheese was like rubber.
My partner finished her meal in about 2 seconds and I managed to eat 4 of the 8 slices of pizza.
After paying I spoke to the manager of the restaurant to let him know that our meal was not satisfactory for the $65 we ended up paying. After his excuses he reluctantly offered a discount which I refused.
Has anyone else had any good or bad experiences eating at Sogno D’Oro?
