Gross lunch at Laterna on Yonge St.

I had dinner at this place several years ago and remember enjoying the homemade pita bread that was served with the chicken souvlaki.
When I recently returned, I was disguested by the stuffy smell of toilet water in the dining room. The food was overcooked, tasteless and I paid almost double than what I would have if I went to the Danforth!
Absolutely disgusting and I will NEVER be back.
I should have trusted my first instinct and walked out.
I will not recommend this place to anyone.

    Usually when I used to go there, the pizza and souvlaki were pretty darn good. Once I ordered spagetti and meatballs and the whole thing tasted like tin and cinnamon. I told the female proprietor. She said:
    "you know how many of those I sold today?"
    Her defensive attitude was enough for me to not want to rush back. That place is played out.

      Yeah it used to be great. The neptune salad was to die for. Last time I was there, everything was terrible.
