Il Mio Pasta Cafe via Scoopon @ Wednesday, February 22, 2017
Monday 6th Feb
Through scoopon we bought $6 lunches from Il Mio Pasta Cafe for Any Pasta/ Risotto / Signature Pasta Dish. The catch? Well they're only open Mon - Fri: 11am-3pm, so it's in a weekday lunch food court.
The Pasta Menu
Cream Alfredo Risotto - Cream, parmesan cheese, garlic, salt and pepper)
Ordered a creamy risotto $10 which was way too soft, it was almost mushy and plain. As I forgot to add protein, so it was like over cooked rice and sauce. It didn't occur to me at the time that it was just a base, and add ons (at a price) are essential.
Chicken Mediterranean - Tender chicken pieces marinated in
herbs and spices, tomatoes, mushrooms in a Napoli sugo
The pasta wasn't any better, though it had more than just carbs and sauce. Once again too soft, over cooked. High quantity, average quality. So much was jammed packed into the container that made it mushier, all cramped and packed in there (like the replacement buses on our line). There was some toppings at the top almost more as a garnish than throughout.
Can't and won't eat this.
$12 wasted on mush.
Service was good though.
The Sofia of Flagstaff. Don't, unless you have no taste and like mush. Or perhaps try a pizza instead. Even at $6 I wouldn't buy this. After a couple tablespoons it ended up in the back of the fridge.
There's good reviews on Scoopon though notice how they're all clustered. They look quite fake, I hate that they've stopped using zomato rating and have their own reviews from a smaller and in this case, fake pool.
