Good italian restaurant

I tried the pizza here and taste was different. I liked this place as we cant expect a good pizza on a hill station, but it was bit expensive.

We were staying here so had ordered food from the Olive Garden. The mushrooms were not upto the mark and could have been better. Even the morning buffet breakfast needs more attentive staff.

This place is a jewel hidden in the mountain. I had heard about this but never got a chance to visit. Finally i made it and i was really happy. Made my evening. Went there for a nice dinner with my family and all of us enjoyed their delicious pizzas. Would recommend it to all.

After reading some fantastic reviews on TripAdvisor i decided to have dinner at this place. We order veg margarita with some 4 toppings. There were hardly 2-3 tables occupied and no rush at all. We received a over cooked pizza as edges were burnt. And pizza was cold. I asked them to simply cut the edges as i can feel... More

We were there over the weekend, and walked into a near-empty restaurant for lunch. The setting is scenic- with lush forests and hills. The restaurant is airy - all glass - and spacious and tastefully done up. BUT. it was buzzing with flies. WHen I mentioned it to the manager, he insisted they were all outside. Though every now and... More

The resort situated away from the main city. The location is splendid in the midst of the lush green forest. the ambiance is by far the best. The adjoining bar had an impressive list of drinks which you can enjoy in the open air. Chicken pepper salt was delectable. The Fish with hot garlic sauce was an epicurean delight. It... More

So you've eaten in fine italian restaurants, even the good ones of Mumbai.....dont expect the white glove treatment.... this one is in the back of beyond, on a mountain top hundreds of kilometers from civilization, so the surprisingly good pizzas come as a great experience. They even have a whole wheat base which I did not try, sorry. Small selection... More

It has to be best as per location is concerned, being a part of Brightland Hotel but the food just made it the best restaurant in the town. Went there reading TA reviews and I think its still not as #1 in TA list. So the list certainly needs an update. We had grilled mushrooms, their signature garlicy prawns and... More
