Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Visited yesterday...asked a simple question....is your mozzerella vegetarian (no animal rennet)....waiter said he'd never been asked that before......came back laughing and said "yes it's vegetarian"....went away laughing.....so we left. It might be wise to educate your staff in food served and manners.
