Italian’s first came calling to India for spices, especially pepper, which is prominently used in Italian cooking nowadays. Closer to my lifetime, it was Fiat and Vespa who brought along with them the style and attitude. With rapid interaction with the Romans, we got exposed to the Italian food.
I still remember my first ever pizza at the Nirula’s in 80’s. I still have the lingering taste of the cheese pizza, which I used to order year after year. As a kid, for me pizzas and pastas had always scored over noodles. Probably, it had to do with the exotic breads and highly flavoured sauces.
The bar license is yet to come and still the drinks section has some interesting drinks- specially Virgin Sangria and Beet’s Beauty. Both the drinks were very refreshing!. The salads, Beetroot and Caesar were fresh, crisp and dressed to perfection. We also loved Panini’s and Foccasia and both had vegetarian and non-vegetarian options. The wafer thin pizzas were simply outstanding. Generous toppings on the pizzas were very colourful and fresh. But my favourite dish of the evening was Arabian Honey Cake. It was moist, glazed with honey and almonds. Since it’s a café, and that to an Italian, coffee had to be on the menu. We were told that, theyhad good selections. We opted for the Americana which came hot and was aromatic.
