One of the oldest Italian restaurants in the City, Italiano is situated in a Village crossroads complex in DLF Phase III. Although the building is surrounded by small shops, the interior of restaurant is inviting, with traditional Italian settings. The forthcoming staff guided us to a table and gave us a quick rundown of the menu.
For starters, we ordered Saltimbocca, a popular Southern European dish. It arrived within minutes, and we dug in. Served with honey mustard sauce, the chicken sausage was beautifully wrapped in bacon and fried, making it a little different from regular Saltimbocca. It was a resounding way to start a meal. The Bolognese Pizza was just as good. Each bite was flavourful and tasted light. Its wholesome thin crust with spicy mint mutton topping, made it a perfect starter for an Italian meal.
Affable and soft-spoken Head Chef Rahul Khare informed us about the popular dishes and also told us that Italiano is known for its Chicken Lasagna. We ordered it, along with Penne Pasta in white sauce with vegetables. Served with fresh crispy bread, the Lasagna was perfectly cooked – tender and yet a little firm. It had a generous serving of cheese on it, which was irresistible. The top layer was cooked to perfection, with the edges nice and crispy and the melted cheese flowing all over. Italiano offers a wide range of toppings in its menu so one can easily customise.
For dessert, we were served the classic tiramisu. It was presented well with a sprinkle of chocolate powder that gave it a divine look. The cream was rich and delicious, with just the right ratio of cream to sponge. It was a perfect ending to a
Overall, it was a very positive experience. The menu was varied, food was excellent, and most importantly, staff were attentive. “Customer satisfaction is not just a matter of offering good food. It is being attentive to customer grievances and willing to accept criticism openly,” said Aditi, Marketing Manager at Italiano. The staff’s friendly behaviour and the outstanding food will definitely bring us back to the restaurant.
