Sir: If you are trying to say that my Italian cuisine entails the Olive Garden, I assure you that is not the fact. I eat and have eaten in some of the FINEST Italian restaurants in the world. I will assure you that the cuisine you will be getting on Costa will not even come close to the Olive garden. You will wish you were at the Olive garden. The staff in the kitchen on the Med is anything but Italian. You will be treated to Italian style via Peru. Sir, the bottom line is that you have been warned. If you are paying $300 per person for a 8 day cruise you aill have a bargain, and remember that you do get what you paid for. Anything more, you will be sorry.
