Clean and crisp looking,
food badly cooked,
This place is nothing special, its a chain
Well it looked good on the cover with the service being polite with a nice atmosphere, but iStrada is obviously a busy restaurant as my saute potatoes were not pre boiled so rock hard. I mentioned it at the end and i was not charged though.
When paying, I asked whether the waitress would prefer a cash tip to avoid tax etc but i was informed that the tips go to make up the wages.
This really put me off and to be honest I would avoid again out of principle.
