Visited Destingo last night with some old work friends and while the company couldn’t have been beat, the food left a lot to be desired. While the majority of our table indulged in pasta, I opted out for an arrugala pizza (which is my favourite of all time) and grilled calamari and was by no means impressed. I was however full, unlike some of my other friends who received very small portions of pasta (at Destingo’s, apps are a must!) and the waitress was unsure of which pasta was made in house which gave us all a very uneasy feeling of what was to come. I can appreciate that good Italian food is simple and focuses on the beauty of fresh ingredients but my crew had an unanimous decision that this food was borderline bland. Positives- the location and atmosphere could not be beat and had nice serving staff.
No one hated their dinner, but no one loved it, and no ones bill was under $30.
