Bella Luna

Italian at the mall.

What we had:

I had the linguine del mar, or something to that effect. Linguine with scallops, mini clams, mussels and marinara. It wasn't horrible. At least the marinara was light. One of my 5 scallops wasn't cooked to rubber. The mussels made me nervous, and weren't great. I don't remember tasting the mini clams. I think there was shrimp in the dish, but I don't remember it. My DH had linguine with alfredo and chicken. Maybe it's because my DH makes spectacular alfredo and I'm spoiled; the sauce just didn't do it for either of us. The chicken would have been better if it were properly browned, too.


We ate outside, and the patio was squashed. Our table got rammed 3 or 4 times, and I got hit in the back of the head at least once.

Overall impressions:

Why did I think Italian at the mall was a good idea? Oh yeah, because it's an uppity mall. And I listened to what the people on Google said. One person called the food "superb." I was so wrong. Maybe I'm too picky; I expect fresh pasta from my Italian restaurants and alfredo sauce that doesn't come from a mix. At least it was better than Olive Garden.
