Best Italian Food in India

This restaurant was a surprise hit. I didn't expect such authentic Italian food in Kolkata. The pasta was made in-house, the meat was tender, and the salad was fresh (and safe for my weak, American stomach). For dessert we had the chocolate bomb and it was to die for. For the uninitiated, it's... read more

Great Italian restaurant having good wine selection where the sommelier assists the guests in combining the wine with the food. Perhaps the only restaurant in the city which serves authentic Italian cuisine. They have great appetisers and salads too. A perfect place to enjoy food with your better half with a great view away from the din and bustle of... More

I think this place has the best Italian cuisine in the city, good ambiance and good selection of wine. The place lacks majorly in service, the staff are absolutely cold and un-friendly. The class n level of service u expect out of a 5 star is not there. When we finished our meal, the staff who came to clear our... More

The most magnum opus spread ever seen yet during our today's Italian Sunday Pranzo (Brunch) visit at La Cucina. It's 5 star establishment so one will be spoiled and pampered like anything. Ambiance was class apart. Once entered the restaurant started with a confusion as my reservation details were not available with them. The brunch offer was sold out. However... More

I wouldn't normally eat Italian at an Indian hotel. However, I had recently landed and wanted a quick dinner before bed and the concierge highly recommended La Cucina and he was right to do so. I had soup and a seafood linguine, both of which were really good. It is a nicely designed and the service was very good. If... More

Sunday brunch buffet was quite average. Cold buffet could have been few shades better in terms of offerings. Dishes served at the table were good. Service was very good.

I will start with this dessert that was simply awesome on that day. Must be tasted. The ambiance was good. Variety of wine was limited but the overall dinner experience was fabulous. Please remember that this a restaurant from Hyatt, so be prepared for big budget meals. On this note, I must tell that it's a bit overpriced restaurant but... More

The food here was great, slightly overpriced... but good none the less... I was here for a business meet... but otherwise the place might be slightly out of the way.... primarily Italian, it has little variety... but excels in whatever the menu offers.
