Farfalla Trattoria Los Angeles Reviews
Mediocre food, whistling staff and a rude Russian waitress May 08, 2008
What a disappointment!
Where to start.. I walked in out of the cold and got whistled at (loudly) by some chefs behind the counter. Classy.
Then the waitress was this eastern european chick. Pretty, but very very brusque and full of attitude. No knowledge of the wine selection, no personal preferences to help me narrow down my menu choice. Great. Luckily I grew up in NY around these types so she didn't stand a chance of fazing me.
Food was pretty bad. Out of the 5 dishes, the only one that tasted good was Tracy's choice - the fusilli with artichokes, mushrooms and truffle oil. That was pretty good, but I think it was only because they overdid it on the truffle oil, bringing out the wonderful smokey flavor. Joy and I barely touched our food. Nhi tried really hard to slice through her rubbery steak.
Oh, and they had a lemon-flavored Pelligrino which was lovely!
