“Good enough food, ungracious service”

The food was good but not remarkable. The one star is for ungracious service. We made reservations. The place was empty but for one party. We asked for the a table closest to the view. They said no, the tables were taken. Bull spit. No one took either of the two four tops we requested. One four top was split in two to accommodate a party of two. One four top remained empty. Of course the restaurant wants to keep the most desirable table in reserve to coax in clients. But when a guest asks for it, and it is not reserved, you give it up. AND, they told us about the special app, grilled red shrimp. At this point my radar is up. How much is it. 7 Euro per shrimp. WTF? Had I not asked, we would have gotten two orders. They had the stink of desperation on them. I wonder why? Everywhere else that we have been in this wonderful, amazing country has treated us like beloved guests. Not this place. Again, to be fair the food was better than average. And the location is pretty good. Just feel free to be extra assertive. Perhaps, shame on me for not wanting to make my family uncomfortable by advocating for a better table. But I chose this joint for the 0.1 star rating advantage over a couple of alternatives. I hope this one star review knocks below the crowd. I am a gracious appreciative diner. You could have had a good review.....

MOG is a small restaurant set near the waterfront where you can sit either inside or out on the pavement- we chose inside and it was interesting to watch the chefs at work in front of you. The dishes in which food is served are beautifully designed and very contemporary, a good accompaniment to the meal. The gnocco was delightful and the taglione with squid ink also very tasty. Try the mandorle paste desert.
