Respond to Review of Amico Bio

Review: We enjoyed a nice meal at Amico Bio, calling in for lunch on a weekday. The first thing we saw on entering was a fantastic looking focaccia - the product placement worked, we ordered it and it tasted good! For starters we shared warm olives, and the focaccia. The warm olives were extremely delicious. The focaccia was also very good, served with slightly less interesting olives. Both portions were modest in size. We had to remind them to bring our drinks, and then remind them again for a drink that was missing, but otherwise the service was fine. My husband really enjoyed his freshly squeezed orange juice. I had the special, a fresh melon juice, which was actually rather disappointing - the melon was not ripe enough and it lacked sweetness and flavour. For mains, I had the seitan with aubergine, and husband had the strudel. He was very happy with his dish (I didn't try it as it wasn't vegan). He had his with fries, I had mine with roast potatoes and salad. The seitan was very tasty, although again the portions weren't that big. The roast potatoes were a little undercooked. Bear in mind that all accompaniments - potatoes, vegetables, salad - have to be ordered in addition to a main course. So a main course at £8 becomes £18 once you add potatoes and vegetables (which are necessary additions, otherwise there really isn't enough food). The only vegan desserts they had were ice cream and sorbet. I worried that the ice cream would just be Swedish Glace, but to their credit, it was actually a home-made ice-cream that tasted really good. This time the portion was a generous two scoops, one vanilla, one chocolate. Overall, this was a positive dining experience, and we'd happily go back.
