Flavors Of Italy, New Delhi

This trattoria run by Italian chef Tarsillo Nataloni is a true Italian restaurant in New Delhi. What makes it wonderful is that it is as authentic as you can get to Italian cuisine in India. The restaurant has indoor seating (smoking as well as non-smoking areas) plus there is an outdoor verandah along a small green area. It is filled with wrought iron tables and gives you the feeling of road-side restaurant settings so famous in Italy. The menu includes a broad selection on Italian dishes along with wonderful pizzas. They have everything - Anitpasti, Salads, Soups, Panini, Pizza, Pasta, Risotti and much more. The pizzas are made in the wood-oven as well.

Do try their "Peri Peri Pizza" - it is wonderful and something which you will not get anywhere else in Delhi. All the pastas are worth ordering, specially the one in Napoli sauce. They also have the option for whole wheat pasta and pizza base for weight watchers.

One thing which I dislike a lot about the place is that their service is very poor. The staff takes a lot of time to even come to your table to ask for order and then takes a lot of time delivering it. Overall there is surely a need for the staff to get their service level up a lot. Worth a place visiting in spite of this. Also, the place gets a lot crowded in the evening, so make sure that you reach early. Meal for two would cost somewhere around 1000 bucks.
