Yes, This is on the House!!. An instruction card is available on tables; you simply have to follow the instruction…
After, refreshing taste, we tried there Veg & Non-Veg Piatto(Platters),
– Piatto Di Vegetarian (veg platter), Consist of blend Veg Crostini, Bruschetta Pomodoro, Mozzarella Fritter, Fried Arrancinni and tempura fried Veggies, and on the off chance that somebody requests that I pick the best, then I will go with Mozzarella Fritter, Fried Arancini. Flavors of mozzarella (soft, moist texture full of milky flavors) and Arancini (stuffed brimming of flavors and oozing with melted cheddar) take centre stage in this signature creation.
– Piatto Di Carne E Pesce (Non-Veg Platter): which comprises, Chicken Crostini, BBQ Chicken, Prawns Aglio, Crispy Calamari and Fried Basa Fish, from this platter I adored almost all items. Each item on the platter compliments each other taste, it was tough for me to choose anyone.
After gobbling the Platters in no time we called for the Pasta’s ( PASTA MADE & ROLLED IN HOUSE), they served us “Ravioli Di Spinaci E Ricotta (Veg)” stuffing of Spinach ricotta, It was a complete winning pair of “stuffed Spinach ricotta” and “parmesan Cheese”, this pasta was a perfect cradle for the sauce.
Ravioli Di Petto D’ Anatra (Non-Veg): Don’t get confused with Name, it was basically a Non-Veg Pasta dish with a base ingredient as Duck meat. Ravioli loaded down Duck meat, Cheese & Onions and tossed with parsley in cream Sauce (white). The meat was complete tender and fused so much with all flavours one can’t resist. to put it plainly, it was a tantalizing treat that guaranteed to make any food lover drool.
Spaghetti Aglio Olio Frutti Di Mare (Non-Veg): Traditional Italian pasta dish from Naples, Spaghetti mixed with seafood, Garlic & Olive oil and Pepperoncino trust me, each selected ingredient contributes to the greatness of the dish #Musttry.
And then this show stopper show up’s from Pizza Section,
– Del Chianti (Non-Veg)- Pollo Alla Griglia (Non-Veg)- Prosciutto Ai Funghi (Non-Veg)
All above Pizza’s were HERO’s in itself, each pizza got his own distinct flavors, may it be toppings, Sauces or Seasonings. Del Chianti is was topped with Pesto Chicken, Pollo Alla Griglia was topped with BBQ chicken wherein Prosciutto Ai Funghi was topped with dry-cured ham.
Somewhat “Prosciutto Ai Funghi” grab my attention, dry-cured ham thinly sliced and served uncooked which taste, Achtung baby! #HighlyRecommended.
********** No matter where I have Pizza now, I will be ending up comparing it to Chianti now **********
And ended with Tempting “Dolci Platter”, of which “ Tiramisu” & “Bomba Di Cioccolato” were a culinary masterpiece that intertwines flavor and texture.
