For years now I've found that Hyderabad lacks good Italian (or for that matter any European) restaurants. This one is not all that good but is a step in the right direction.... probably Hyderabad's best Italian restaurant.
I went there for dinner today. To start with, I decided to try a few drinks. The menu has a fairly good selection of cocktails, some regular, some a little different. I tried an Orange Margherita, then a Rossini (Raspberry liqueur with Rose wine and Prosecco, and a December Mist (Tequila, whiskey, Grand Marnier and sour mix). All three were quite nice. There was an unusual Blue cheese Martini, and even though I like blue cheese, I didn't want to try that drink.
To eat, I started with Grilled shrimp with mustard dressing which was just about ok but too salty, and a Via Milano Pepperoni Pizza. The pizza itself wad quite decent but had too many onions spoiling the taste (I picked out quite a few pieces but there were too many).
Along with the pizza I had a glass of La Corte Refosco wine which was quite nice.
On the menu I found one pizza called Bollywood pizza which put me off. The name made it sound like they didn't really care about trying to be an authentic Italian restaurant at all.
The restaurant had about 15 tables. When I got there at 8 in the evening, I was the first customer, when I finished, only three other tables were occupied. I wonder how well this place is doing ?
