I treated my sister for her birthday, thinking Caffe’ Concerto would be extraordinary as It looks from the display and above all I thought it was Italian. Big mistake, we ordered two cappuccinos and a slice of cake. The cake wasn’t too bad it was ok, too rich in cream for my taste but that ‘s another story.
Cappuccino was really below average but what really struck me most, it was the service! This waiter had an appalling attitude. I was very curious to know what Italian desserts they made so I asked the waiter. He seemed even reluctant for having to speak to me. When I asked my question he replied: all the desserts are made here, they are not coming from Italy! So I said: Of course you make them here I just wanted to know what kind of Italian desserts you make here. You know like Tiramisu’ and so on He got back to me saying: what is Tiramisu’? Now, how can you possibly work in a place which bears an Italian name and not possibly know what Tiramisu’ is?
This place is so expensive it s unbelievable and their staff is so ignorant it’s shocking. I was very disappointed I thought I was going to learn something new as I am into baking and cooking and I left with £15 less in my pocket and the disappointment. I have been in London for many years and I find to have good quality Italian food so hard. Princi is good but it’s overpriced as well, but at least it’ s nice Italian food.
