Before Gordon's Arrival

Rosario bought the restaurant after her son, Gianfranco graduated from culinary school and told her he had always wanted to own a restaurant. He is head chef, but Maurizio, who is the bar manager, believes people like microwave meals more than the restaurant's.

First Impressions


First Meal

Food Ordered

Veal, penne pasta, mussels marinara

Impressions of the Food

The veal is bland, overcooked and caked in flour. The pasta is also overcooked and drowning in sauce. The mussels has very few mussels in it and he can tell they are frozen. When Gordon asks why this is the case, Giancarlo explains that the mussels were not popular enough for them to buy fresh ones.
