“Awesome Tiramisu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

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 on a special day you may indulge to Italian delicacy.

“Great food....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

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.

“Desperate for European food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

The Hyatt has all the ambience of the 5* plus and if you really do need an infusion of western food in lovely surroundings this is it. Walking distance of the Kim Lawn guest house you can spend the cash you saved by staying at Kim Lawn on a delicious buffet and a fresh lime soda!

“What you would expect”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014 via mobile

This Italian restaurant is based in th Hyatt hotel. Nice setting, open kitchen, chairs are a bit uncomfortable. Decent varied menu, even some beef dishes, limited wine list, expensive for the quality. Great tiramsu! Service was good, not spectacular, but this is India inefficiency. If I was to choose one restaurant in the hotel, it would be the Indian restaurant.

“Good food - awesome Parathas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Nice Food

Service little unprofessional - perhaps lack of experienced hands.

Why Black Dog is not available ? It's now costlier than Black Label -- and perhaps tastes better too!!!
