My experience yesterday was certainly different from yours.
For a restaurant describing itself as pasta and pizza there was an extremely limited pasta selection. Only five and not even offering a straightforward tomato sauce option. There was a mushroom pasta but it was noticeably lacking any indication that it was suitable for vegetarians. I opted for ravioli of the day. The waiter had to discuss with another waiter what the ravioli was that day. Odd given the limited choice. It was described as spinach and ricotta which, from its tough texture and presentation I can only assume was reheated after being unsold the day before. It came with a basil leaf garnish but there was also a dried out garnish underneath which someone had obviously omitted to remove when decanting it on to the plate.
The house wine was very acceptable, as was the coffee but I shall not be returning. A shame as I used to used da Porcini very happily.
