We returned to this restaurant because we have been so impressed by it when we went there a year before. So having the opportunity to spend two days in the same area, we gave it a real test.
On the first evening, we ordered a classic lasagna and a grilled chicken bruschetta and as we did twelve months before, we were very please by our choices. My personal favorite is the lasagna. You may think that is is hard to miss a lasagna but believe me, some can but not the Italian Kitchen and Cafe. A perfect combination of pasta, cheese and home made sauce. A pure delice for me. My sister was also please with her chicken. Tasty, tender, an almost perfect combination of flavors even though I would have probably add more black olives. We have been lucky with our choice of wine but unfortunately, I do not remember its name. The service was attentive and efficient. An almost perfect evening what made us full of hopes for our second evening.
But we were wrong. The problem was that it was crowdier on Saturday night but there was not enough people to handle the workload even though they had some help from a third employee. So we waited a lot more. Not only that but some people arrived after us or coming inside only to pickup their meals were served way ahead of us and this is something I can barely stand. Not that i am that picky but when it is so evident and you feel abandonned, enjoying a nice dinner becomes a lot more difficult.
And the meals were not as good. My fettucine Alfredo was not really creamy and its flavor was just OK. Deceiving given our high expectations. Not highly ranked in the fettucinis alfredo I had in my life. My sister chosed the cafeland and sea ultimate pasta (not sure about the title) and she was also deceived. A strange combination and a lack of flavors we were not used to in this place. So we quited the place a lot less enthusiastic after waiting long for our bill. Very deceiving.
So go there for the classic lasagna but try to avoid crowdy nights.
