The Official PROC Restaurant review thread.

Went to Da Mirco on Bridge Street last Friday. 4 of us.

Starters of Burrata salads for my buddy and I. The ladies both had a mini-antipasti board (which was not mini).

My friend's wife found a large piece of hard plastic baked into the focaccia made in-house (according to the menu). She pointed it out to the waitress and said "You might want to take it off for the evening in case anyone else gets some" to which the waitress replied with "We'll complain to the people that we buy the breads from" - no apology, no concern. So much for "in-house baked breads".

"Will I leave the rest of the focaccia?" was met with a resounding no.... I mean for fuck sake like.


Mains - Gnocchi with sausage, vegetarian gnocchi, braised beef cheek with lemon potato and bigoli with pork cheek. The latter was mine, it arrived absolutely covered in grated cheese. I like all cheeses but I'd prefer to be asked if I want it draped over the entire serving.

4 x starter, 4 x main, 2 bottles still water, 1 overpriced bottle of distinctly average red, 1 x espresso, 1 x Americano. No desserts.

€206 - rounded to €240 to include tip (which I seriously debated on dropping to €225 given the chronic level of service).

Starters were decent. My main dish was only OK and over-powered by the amount of cheese. Small mains portions when it came to both of gnocchi options. Poor service. Bad coffee. Shard of solid plastic in the bread.

Can't recommend at all. Would not return.
Thats a pity - I've eaten there a few times and enjoyed it, but its been a while. Mirco himself is a nice fella too.
