Random Review: Mambo Italiano

We were in home shopping for the weekend and based on "The Best of the Boat," we went here. If this is the best, I'd hate to taste the worst. The waitress was terrific, and my date's dinner was saved by the wine. Other than that? Had the steak with verde special. It was like shoe leather. Left it on my plate - the folks next to us asked if they could take it for their dog, and I almost had them sign a liability release for any vet bills that might be caused! My date had a pasta special that was overly tomatoed. While the appetizers and soup were spoken of glowingly, they were nothing to write home about - average at best. The garlic bread was over garliced to the point of bitterness, and your fingers were horribly oily after touching it. We have eaten all over the world, and this had to be the worst, yet most pretentious Italian meal we've ever had. Please learn how to do a simple marinara well. Subtlety goes a long, long way when seasoning. While we are moving to Steamboat, we will not be dining here again.
