# Fortress Hill branch #

On Sunday 22 Sept,2015. We ordered 1 set of spaghetti mushrooms and bacon and 1 set of spaghetti chery shrimp and cod's roe. Both spaghetti cook perfectly nice and firm. The taste also full of flavor.

Lunch set came with mushroom soups, coffee and tea wich all quite good.

Total bill cost 179 hkd including 10% service charge.

Somehow service quality was very low. They almost throw plate, cups, bowl on the table. None of staffs ever smile. We don't really feel welcome here.

Ambience was also super noisy. We felt like sitting in food court.

Italian Tomato - Sheung Wan:

First of all, even though they were friendly, three of the waiters were sick and kept sneezing and coughing into their hands and then they served food. None of them wore face masks.

Secondly, I am a semi-vegetarian who eats fish. We were told the soup was seafood, but it had bacon bits in it. Bacon is not seafood. My snapper and rice tasted disgusting and on further investigation, it looked and smelled as if the fish had been cooked in chicken fat. Chicken is not 'fresh snapper'. The chef's excuse was that the fish was prepared elsewhere and they "just heat it up".

So = extremely poor hygiene standards and food that is not fresh or prepared in a healthy manner.

Perhaps this was why the store was nearly empty when everywhere else was crowded.

Disappointing.

I love the pasta in Italian Tomato very much. My husband and daughter love the cake there. It is good to go there during the afternoon tea time. You can have the food in a much cheaper price with a drink. However, there would be bread and soup included for lunch and dinner set only.

Go to have a quick meal after work. Food is nice and cheap. Suitable for people who want to spend less like me. Taste is good and environment is good

Definitely a great Italian place for pasta. I would recommend the spaghetti carbonara-delicious. To save a few dollars, you can go for the tea time meal and with that you can get a free drink. The cold coffees have too much ice so its better if you go for a hot coffee.

I feel that the best one is at Sogo, TST
