Trichilo’s Ristorante

Trichilo’s is located on Richmond Street in London, Ontario.  The interior was nice though I will warn you the lighting is very dim.  I went with a large group of people and we ordered different dishes.  I didn’t take pictures of everyone’s dishes as I was not familiar with many of them.

The menu is average and a little limited.  Most of the menu items are what you would find from any Italian restaurant.  I decided to stay safe and ordered the spaghetti with meatballs.  My friend who shared similar sentiments ordered a lasagna.

The spaghetti and meatballs were average. The spaghetti was a little dry for me.  The meatballs were huge and pretty decent although I found it lacked seasoning.

The lasagna was filled with a lot of meat as well -my friend almost couldn’t finish it – and is very filling.

A few other dishes that we tried were the carpaccio and cioppino.  The carpaccio was excellent and I wish there was a bit more on the plate.  The cioppino received quite the negative response as the mussels seemed to have turned bad and there was a smell.  I’m not sure if this is a normal occurrence or an anomaly.  We told the waitress and she came back telling us the chefs said it was a new batch of mussels -we felt it was unnecessary to press further as the response was rather unfriendly.

Our waitress did check up on us frequently and was quite friendly.  I think the mussels incident might have soured the mood a little.  Overall, I won’t be visiting this restaurant again as my experience was disappointing.  There was nothing that truly popped out as a “must try” item from their menu, the prices were on the higher side for its plainer dishes, and the overall experience makes it less than stellar.
