    I spent most of last night reading reviews on Yelp about these hustlers. Hilarious!

    Isn't it illegal to charge for water, or do they just automatically grab you bottled water if you don't specify tap?

    What idiot would actually pay the bill? I'd just walk the fuck out. Go ahead, call the cops. Good luck finding a cop who would give half a fuck that one of your customers refused to pay $200 for 20 cents worth of spaghetti.

    Another fine reason to A) research the place before you go in the door, or B) eat at home.

    X2 and who the hell would order food at a restaurant they were not familiar with without knowing how much you were spending. I don't care how much money you have $15 for a glass of water is asinine

    if you go into a restaurant with out prices on the menu you get exactly what you deserve, my x ordered a "special" with out asking the price one time at one of our favorite restaurants, 35$ later she learned her lesson, (average price was between 15-20$ tops) i also wont go into a restaurant with out checking out the menu first ive found the biggest rip off restaurants around here are at the casinos

    Sounds like Casa Bella in Little Italy. I wonder if this Nello place is owned by the Banano's as well.

    $35 for a special in a NYC restaurant is nothing.

    I think that's a bit much.

    I on the other hand, would be returning the meal to the establishment in 30 minutes or so right in middle of their dining room.
