Full Moon Trattoria order in. Underwhelmed

MRS Mar 8, 2012 04:38 PM

Just ordered in from Full Moon Trattoria in Purchase. A number of friends have told me that everything is so good when they order in from there and I have been curious to try it. Their on-line order system is very easy and that's a plus. But the food was fair at best, and rather expensive for what it was. Perhaps what I ordered ( the veal martini) was not the best choice for a dish to be delivered vs eat -in, but at $25 plus tip, it was not in any way impressive. The sauce was very tangy and very oily. The veggies along it were just plain sad. Sad looking asparagus and sad looking carrot/zucchini mix. The veal itself was eh. I think it was the breading that made it "eh". I was a little surprised that no bread or rice came with it, on an aside.

I know- to each his own. And again, I admit that I may have chosen badly for delivery, but I think from now on, I'll stick to my 2 faves in my area for Italian delivery and not cheat on them again.

I think disappointed is a better word than underwhelmed, but I feel like I just threw money in the garbage. Which, seeing as how I did toss most of my dinner, I kinda did. They are off my list.

      Really enjoy and can rely on Franks' and Al Dente. Always consistently good for delivery.
