Penning down this review which was pending since quite a long time now. Finally got the time to write down the review for a well deserved place. As they say, better late than never.
A small, well-maintained, neat and tidy restaurant located on Handewadi road serving pure-veg Italian food. Might sound weird and hard to believe, but is equally true. I had already visited the place more than a couple of time and never been disappointed once.
The Mint and Ginger Ice Tea prepared over there is a very refreshing drink, absolutely overloaded with shredded ginger. So be prepared for it.
The Mint Cooler was also very refreshing and a very good drink to have.
The Quesadilla’s are perfectly done. Just the way as they should be. The Pasta Alfredo as well as the Pesto Pasta are again perfectly prepared. The sauce used for various pasta preparations has a very good consistency.
The only thing that went-off at the place was the Sizzling Brownie. And the simple reason is the butter that they use for the sizzling purpose. Basically after a point the prolonged burning of butter adds a bitter burning flavor itself kills the entire brownie. So they need to come up with a solution to avoid it, being a pure-veg place with no liquor license, not sure if they can use something like brandy to deal with the issue !!
A take on their Pizza’s is something that’s on the cards for the next visit.
And the next time I am gonna carry camera for better pics. So please bear with the inferior pics for now 😀
Overall a total VFM place for people residing nearby, otherwise the accessibility for those far-off and traveling on the narrow Handewadi lanes is an issue for sure.
