You know something good is coming when a chef who has spent a considerable part of his life in Italy comes back to his home country to share a slice of Vita Italiana. That’s the life of Chef Naresh Verma who, along with the entrepreneurship of Anirudh Gupta came up with La Vie.
La Vie is really small in size, like a little gallery and the mirrored wall gives a feeling of extra space. The seating and furniture is too casual, therefore the prices, which are almost equal to any fine dine Italian restaurant, seem to be on a steeper side. Their menu is rather large but restricts itself to traditional Italian fare without venturing into the Indian flavours like some American pizza chains.
Then we tried Mushroom Spinach Tortellini Salad. The tortellini (which is basically a stuffed pasta) had excellent flavour and went well with accompanying ingredients like rocket leaves, roasted pepper, artichoke and sun dried tomatoes. In appetizer we tried The Spanish Tango. It was basically bacon (yes bacon!) wrapped chicken with Spanish olives. I liked the presentation of the dish inside the cocktail glass. Without giving entire credit to the bacon I found the dish really tasty. We also tried Spaghetti Aglio Olio which was a much spicier and ingredient rich version of the original dish with all the olives, cherry tomatoes and cilantro.
The best part of the meal was also their most innovative dish The Dessert Pizza. Out of many options we went for Apple Crumble Pizza and Oh Boy we weren’t disappointed. Overall experience left me satisfied and I recommend everyone to come to La Vie at least once especially to try their Dessert Pizza.
