What happened to Via Allegro?
In the thread on Celestin VA is mentioned as having disappeared from the star ratings it had for, I believe, the best part of a decade roughly 1995-2005? I remember having great evenings there, good food, good service, great atmosphere - it was expensive but all my friends loved it too and Wendy the sommelier was a star - great human being as well as an expert on wines.
So my question is, what happened? the place had everything going for it. My last dinner there 3-4 years ago stank. I particularly remember the individual pizza that had a floppy crust and was worse than Pizza Pizza which is the bottom of my chain listings!
My last meal there involved a couple of running, screaming kids, playing catch and criss-crossing around the tables!! Neither the parents nor the wait staff/management did anything for over 5 minutes!! Thank God I did not have a bottle of 1985 Sassicaia on the table!
