Hungry tired and wet after a long day at work, I called in to il Fornello Italian restaurant in Southampton Row last night.
Soup - heat me up and good for the system. Having ordered home made Cream of Tomato, at £4.50, I settled down with a glass of Pinot Grigio and waited. Fifteen minutes later, soup arrived.
One taste confirmed what my eyes told me, this was not home made it was Heinz Tomato Soup!
The waitress feigned ignorance and all of a sudden only spoke Italian. The manager eventually came across and said "eef you no layk I geev you Minestrone" - that wasn't really the point
He then agreed that it was in fact Heinz Soup! Bought from convenience store next door.
Paid for wine and left. Don't go to il Fornello unless you like Heinz?
