We visited this restaurant by chance and after looking at the 4.1 rating and 1900+ reviews on zomato, i was actually curious to sample their food.
Address: New DP Road, Opposite Tangent Furniture, Aundh, Pune . Very easy to locate. It is on the main road.
Opening hours: Mon -Fri 12noon – 3pm, 7pm – 11pm, Sat & Sun 12noon – 11pm
Dining Type: Casual dining.
Cuisines: (Pure Veg) Italian, North Indian, Salad, Healthy Food. Known for Authentic hand-crafted Italian fare.
Parking : Space for atleast 3-4 four wheelers in front of the restaurant.
Ambience : Small and beautiful with false windows and flowers. Some beautiful paintings. Somewhat cramped. We visited this restaurant around 3:30 pm and still it was jam packed. We had to wait for around 15 minutes. It has 6 four-seater tables, some 2 seater tables and 2 large ones for group of more than 4 guests.
Staff : Very helpful. Service is okay.
Cleanliness: Can be improved.
Kid friendly/Baby friendly?: Not really. My toddler gave me a hard time there.
Value for Money: No, every dish is quiet damaging on pocket.
What we ordered: Ravioli 5/5 470/- This was a good choice but still very overly priced. Spinach and cottage cheese filled ravioli in pink sauce. Garlic bread was good.
Mexican platter: 2/5 420/- a very very overly priced dish. I will definitely NOT recommend. It had cheese corn balls (okay), Nachos ( very disappointing, tasted like partially cooked papads, salsa( good but on the sweeter side), cheese sauce (very good), french fries(no complaints) and onion rings( was it onion pakoda?? Coz it was not at all crispy and actually tasted like pakodas, thick and soft)
Bloody peru mocktail: 2/5 200/- A spicy guava beverage with salted rim. It was okay.
Elizabeth Mocktail: 3/5 190/- Orange juice, cranberry juice, grenadine syrup, lime juice and soda. Okay Mocktail. Won’t order again.
SR Rating : 3/5
Will we go back? At least once again to try their famous dish. They have Lunch and Dinner Buffet as well so may be for the Buffet. One star less for being very pricey for a casual dining experience and one star less for serving only vegetarian fare.
ROI Advice : Ditch the Ala carte`, specially the platters. Go for Buffet.
