I've been a regular at Arancia and I'm not sure I agree with you there Tharg. I've never ordered extra vegetables at Arancia because I didn't need them. The main course dishes are served (like the french tend to) with a basic veg accompanyment (potatoes or polenta for example) and this always seems enough to me. Of course, I always have a starter and often a pudding too (as you'd deduce from my ample girth) so until you suggested it this had never ocurred to me as being a problem.
Mind you, if I was served one of those obscenely huge steak and kidney puddings they do at The Oak and was told that the mash was an extra three quid I'd be most put out. Where else have you encountered this phenomenon?
