Didn't like the food Thought the service was okay Thought the ambience was okay
I went to AMICO BIO in Barbican once but I decided to take advantage of GROUPON DEAL to try this new AMICO BIO in New Oxford St.
24£ Three-courses meal for two people - but we were in three.
No special welcome, no appetizer/bread while waiting.
We took TWO GLASSES of RED wine and one glass of WHITE WINE.
Very good quality. (Price OK!)
A smiling girl took orders but she wasn't that prepared for questions on food.
BUFALA MOZZARELLA, TOMATOES and BASIL
TWO TINY slices of Bufala Mozzarella + THREE tiny slices of tomatoes
and THREE MINUSCULE basil leaves
Looked more like an appetizer than a starter!
FRITTELLE DI CAVOLFIORE e INSALATA
Really good, tasty... Some leaves of salad.
Not a generous portion.
CROCCHETTA DI PATATE E CECI con INSALATA DI CAROTE
Good and light - not big enough portion to consider it as a main dish.
(8.50£ - too high for chickpeas, potatoes and some barley around)
Carrots salad? Just some long carrot flakes on the crocchetta.
MELANZANE ALLA PARMIGIANA
Normal portion, where is the cheese? It was watery because of (almost) lack of it.
We asked for bread to go with it which has been charged 2.50£
(literally 3 pieces of warm bread - toast size slices)
One of us ordered ARROSTO DI SEITAN but they made a mistake so this
person had to wait 5/10 mins to receive it.
Normal portion, very good taste.
CANNELLONE al cioccolato, very good.
VEGAN CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM was ok.
On of us ordered a glass of GRAPPA which costed 5.76£
Prices are high but the food doesn't worth it.
They made a mistake, but they didn't do anything to solve it...
If the treatement had been better and honest, I would have definitely come back but there are cheaper and MUCH BETTER vegan/vegetarian places to go!
