“Good hotel Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014

We had a very enjoyable lunch here. There was good variety on the menu and the fare was very good - some nice touches, notably the lime and honey dressing for the salad.

Good service too.

Also it wasn't so expensive, as it might have suggested, being part of one of the best hotels around (The Imperial). A nice oasis away from the bustle of New Delhi.

“Delicious food and lovely friendly staff.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

We were staying at the Imperial and wanted a quick meal on the night we arrived so we went to this Italian within the hotel. The maitre d' was very welcoming and invited us to choose inside or outside. It was a coolish night but the courtyard is well protected and so we chose a nice table outside where there is a good ambiance.

We were given an excellent basket of bread sticks and butter which we enjoyed while we waited for the meal.

We each had a pasta, and both found the dishes to be delicious, with well balanced sauces and great presentation. The size was about right for a light lunch - which suited us that night.

I had a glass of wine with mine. I first chose an Indian wine available by the glass, but when the waiter gave me a little to taste, I was disappointed to find it like drinking neat vinegar. Without fuss, the waiter suggested another French wine for me which was delicious. This was 700 rupees plus around 45% extra for three taxes for the glass of wine - so higher than Western prices. The food was also very pricey. The bill for 2 entree(ie first course) size pasta, one glass of wine and one soda was around AU$100. I believe around half this would be a fair cost. The ridiculously high prices really interrupt enjoyment of a place like this. There are five star hotels all around the world with bistros within, which manage to charge a reasonable amount of money for excellent food. Although we enjoyed the meal, I would not go back unless for convenience after arriving on a late flight or similar. That is a shame because this could be a buzzing place if people were encouraged to drop in for a glass of wine and a bowl of pasta, instead of making it so starched napkin and high prices.

“Best outdoor restaurant you can find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

Absolutely the best beef carpaccio in the city with above average mains and very high costs. It's beautiful in winter- the inside is terrible so don't go in the summer- the seating is romantic without being overly secluded plus they have a great wine selection.
