This is the second Italian restaurant I have been to in Chandigarh. So you would think you now have a choice apart from butter something or the other. Only to land in a tubful of cheese!! The three of us went together and ordered different dishes. Some were very good, but the pasta was overflowing with cheese. But the ambience is nice and you are surrounded by wine bottles. Will go again, but be more discerning in what we order

I went with a my friend in this restaurant just to introduce the Italian food, but unfortunately He will have a no clear idea about the real Italian food.
Just to start I asked for bruschetta, but what they served is not the typical bruschetta but in Italy can be named crostino with cheese, capers and some vegetable. Also the pasta is not absolutely good specially the”penne ai 4 formaggi” with over cooked pasta in an incredible quantity of cream a little better the fusilli ricotta? tomato and basil.
Because my friend is vegetarian We went for a pizza. I asked to make a real pizza that means with a thin dough, only for this was similar at the Italian pizza for all the other , was a pizza vegeriana, nothing about the original a lot of vegetable zucchini, capsicum, aubergine cut in big part and not well cooked with few tomato and cheese. Also the dessert the Tiramisù was just a cake without any flavor.

I decided to visit this place only after reading about the top ranking which your readers have given it. I am in Chandigarh since over 50 years, yet was not even aware of this Italian eatery.
So went over last weekend with friends and tried their caeser salad (with low mayonnaise); two types of pizza (1 veg and 1 chicken); soups, strawberry mock-tail and cake/lava chocolate cake as dessert.
Food was much better than expectation. Pizzas were the roman Italian variety and not the thick Naples variety. They are big. The vegetarian was much tastier.Next time plan to try risotto. Frankly, I never expected the ambiance to be so soothing with old English songs in the background. Overall quite enjoyable.

Great Italian food, good ambiance, good alcohol, good value for money! I've been living in Chandigarh for the last 35 yrs, but wasn't really aware of this excellent place owned by the Piccadilly Group of hotels in the heart of the city, sector 22.
