Cafe at The Italian Cultural Institute
I just love this place. This hidden gem is the perfect place to come with friends, or the love of your life (or week). Its nothing fancy but its that simple rustic charm that makes this work. I prefer to sit outside amongst the trees thinking that I am the only one in the city that knows of this place, of course after I ignore all those sitting around me. This cafe is managed like many others these days by the renowned Ritu Dalmia, chef and owner of Diva restaurant.
The catch here is that you have to come with a member or be one yourself. In order to become a member you have to deposit Rs.1000 (annually) with two passport pictures along with their form during their office hours.
Food - Not that the food is out of this world but its solid and the ambiance more than makes up.
- Pizza - Rocket and parma - Good
- Mutton stew - Good
- Eggplant fritters - Ok
Reasonable - Mid range
