Respond to Review of Dolce Vegan
Review: I have travelled the world, to well over 50 countries, and in most countries, I have tried and tested Vegan or Vegetarian restuarants. This has got to be, by far, the worst that I have ever travelled too, mainly just because of the terrible value for money. Even for Italy, which is normally very expensive, this was outrageous value. As my partner said when we came out: 'I felt as if I have just been robbed'. To start off with, this place is a good bit outside of the centre of the town, so it involves a good walk, which is the last thing you want to do after a heavy days sight-seeing. Besides, the walk is not worth it and you will be dreadfully disappointed. The only positives I can say about this place is that the staff are fairly friendly and the place is clean...but that is where the positives start and end. You have to go up to the counter to place your order. The service is also extremely slow. We only ordered a burger and two so-called hotdogs and a salad. The salad was the worse salad I have ever got in a restuarant. We even had to flavour it ourselves with the only choice they had - olive oil and vinegar. So basically they just through a few veggies into a bowel. When we finally got our meal, we were disgusted with the size of it. It was tiny. Rabbit food comes to mind! In fact, I don't think a rabbit would find it filling. The so-called veggie hotdogs were the smallest I have ever seen, about the size of a your pinky finger. It is just as well we ordered two!! In fact, we first ordered two burgers, but even though the place was empty and we were early, they had said they only had one burger left. Ridiculous! We asked about the size of the hotdogs, so that is why we ordered two. Our food, which we had to collect at the counter, was given to us on paper plates with plastic cutlery, apparently recyclable. Do they know how much water, engergy, etc. it takes to produce these in the first place?? Is it really so much effort to use human energy and wash decent cutlery? I won't use my partners full wording to it involved the words 'Lazy....'. And to add insult to injury, we got the bill. A whopping €28 for just a tiny bland burger, miniscule hotdogs, tasteless salad and 2 soft drinks (the best of the lot). Never again! Avoid like the plague. If you want to be robbed, just leave your purse open around the Doumo. At least you expect that. I am a strict vegetarian, but even I would not support this place ever again. Rubbish. If I could, I'd give this a 1 cow.
