Okay so this is a special treat for anybody who likes pipes. I don't smoke a pipe (you do get lady's pipes but I gave up smoking years ago) but my grandfather always smoked a pipe. He started age 13 and continued into his nin...

It's a great place -- lovely ambience. Good food. I needed a low fat option and though there were vegan options, those are not necessarily low in fat. But they obliged me with a vegan salad with the dressing brought in a small bowl on the side and I ate the salad naked -- it was delicious! We ate an almond meringue between two -- HUGE thing! and equally gorgeous!! Nice place.

It wasn't the food so much as the attitude. I need a low fat option because of a medical condition but I was friends who didn't. I asked what I could have a rather dismissively the waiter said, 'Steamed chicken'. Then after explaining at length what I required, they brought my salad smothered in OLIVE OIL. I said, Erm this salad has oil on it and the waiter said, 'But it's good oil -- olive oil.' You know the bit about the customer being right? Where'd that go? Another Italian place we went to later in our trip could not have been more helpful. I ended up eating the soup and the grilled steak but no salad and no dessert. I have to say the others in my party were not that impressed either!
