Trenta Cucina
Cuisines: Italian
Restaurant details
Reviewed 5 October 2013

We bought a $39 Cudo Voucher which entitled us to a main each a choice of entree or dessert and a glass of wine each. Quite good value.

We started with Calamari and Squid Ink Rissoto which we shared. The portion size was incredibly small and the smallest entree Ive ever seen. There was only 2 small pieces of Calamari??? Whilst nicely presented they should seriously look at increasing the portion size. If one purchased this off the menu at around $14 not good value at all.

Our mains consisted of Porterhouse Steak and Pork Belly. Both were presented well and delicious.

Dessert which we also shared was Tiramisu was of good size and delicious.

The kitchen staff really need to get their act into gear or employ more staff as it took 2.5 hours from the time we ordered before we got our main. Totally unacceptable. Our male server was very professional and helpful and the delays were obviously beyond his control.

Whilst I enjoyed the food I would not return whilst the meals take so long to prepare. I will go back to my local favourite The Bank Restaurant.

I will admit we were on a Deal voucher but we had made a booking for 7pm. The service was appalling - slow and was matched by how slow the kitchen was. We sat it out thinking it would get better but so disappointing. Unfortunately our main meal arrived at 9.15 and any thought of a movie was gone. The full menu was not available and without mention before, or when being served, by linguine turned into fettuccine. Adding to our disappointment was one main meal was only just warm. Only one front of house staff who was taking orders, delivering food and drinks, making coffee, collecting and cleaning dishes and taking payment.
Not good enough - preparation is important and bookings were made in advance.
