    I’ve gone to lavo before and the food was amazing I hyped it up so much when this time around, the pasta was quite undercooked and the cake was very very hard. It was really hard to stick a fork through it. The server was also not quite the best, barely came around to ask how we were doing and never once smiled.

    It’s all about the food, and it sucks. Shame on them using canned tomato sauce to cook everything from pasta to scallops. Are they that lazy to cook fresh sauce? Or too cheap? I felt robbed having to pay $$$$ for food thrown in canned sauce. Shame on them
