Show Was Great, Meal Was Appalling!!!

I booked a theatre and meal deal through for my girlfriends birthday. I didn't pay a lot for the deal so I wasn't expecting much in terms of meal and seats but I was planning to make the most of it all the same. We arrived for the meal at Kitchen Italia in Covent Garden and were handed a small menu called their "Rapido" Menu. The waitress explained that we entitled to a main course from the rapido menu and a glass of house wine or soft drink. So good so far, however, 20 minutes after ordering our meals and drinks, nothing had arrived. Then out of nowhere, a small slab of lasagne arrived in front of me, stone cold!!! I told the waitress who didn't even offer an apology and took the food away. Meanwhile, my girlfriends macaroni and cheese arrived complete with raw pieces of bacon in it!!! So again we told the waitress and again no apology and again took the food away. 5 minutes later my lasagne was returned, nuked to an inch of it's life and my girlfriends macaroni and cheese minus the raw bacon. Both tasted as bad as they looked and we still hadn't had our drinks. At this point we decided to leave, without so much as a goodbye from the staff. Before we left I did notice that the meal offered would've cost us £7.95 each, along with the £30 theatre tickets, our so called "Deal" should've cost £75.90......I paid £80.00!!!
Anyway, the seats in the theatre were great and the show was awesome, apart from the over enthusiastic woman next to me who hit me on the head and in the face several times, to my girlfriends delight!!
So to sum up, lastminute theatre and meal deals aren't deals at all and cost more than face value. And stay away from Kitchen Italia!!!!
