Rest: Corelone
Meal : Late Dinner
Company : Ze Wife

We got into Corleone about 10.30 and were seated right away. The place was 1/3 full with loud tables behind and to our right. Overall, the place is still an interesting setting for a meal, the ambiance is great, the view even better.

However, the meals here have been great to the downright average. This time the food was just super weak. I think the chef does not seem to make an effort anymore.

We got the Minestrone which was very tomato heavy (they brought it too quickly as well) probably had been sitting around for sometime. No pasta, no beans. The stuffed mushrooms are a very well made dish and continues to satisfy. The Ortolana pizza, was tasteless. Absolutely useless, completely bland.
The Lemon De Nere is a soft drink i highly recommend even at 200 bucks a pop. Its Coke, demera sugar, angostura bitters and makes for a refreshing and tasty tipple.

Overall, i was hugely disappointed by the meal. A pop in to Kebab Korner showed that it was practically twice as full as Corleone.

The service continues to be top notch, friendly, prompt and eager to please.

Pity the food is so patchy and below par.

The damage was 1600 which in my opinion is a complete waste. Sticking to Trattoria next time.
Food 3/10 Service 8/10
