Brief Review Of Carnevino; Not Too Happy

Took my daughter to Carnevino for a nice experience last week. She's a UNLV student, heard good things and I'm a Babbo/Esca NY fan. Started of well with bread and a creamy pork belly spread, along with butter. Ordered a glass of Barolo and was talking to daughter when the waitress poured. As she walked away, I noticed it was a Nebbiolo. I tasted the wine and, when she returned, brought it to her attention. She told me Nebbiolo WAS Barolo. I walked over to the table where the wines sat and she had brought the wrong wine. Again, I mentioned it and she asked me whether I liked the wine or not! Not the point, I replied. She actually argued with me. So. Daughter had clams al forno. When they arrived, there were no clams in three of them. Filled with an extremely salty amalgam of bread crumbs and more. Informed the waitress and was told the clams were in there, they were just tiny. Holy cow. Still we persevered. I ordered the sweetbreads. Doesn't get any better, right? OK, I give up. Not to sound nasty, but they were McNuggets. Cold, very overcooked, hard as rocks. Even our waitress acknowledged they were bad. We were done. Should I try again, or is this the norm?
