my review on Little Italy

http://malavika-everythingreviewed.blogspot.in/2014/09/little-italy.html

Ambiance is good and courteous staff adds to the whole experience. Now coming to food, I really didn't miss Non-veg as the pastas served were great.

Paradiso

Walk into this less congested lane in koramangala , you will be greeted into a delightful restaurant . The furniture are so comfortable . there is a nice first floor too .

Zuppa di this and that are scrumptious . I have them every time i visit. The thin crust pizzas are a class apart . i would have liked the music to be better, it is very random for now .

Its a must visit place in bangalore. Sometime you get some goodies which the management generously gives.

Very Nice Place

There are so many options for Italian cuisine lovers. They serve only vegetarian food and the variety is simply awesome. Loved the Ceasar's salad that I ate there. A friend ate a brunch or a buffet and that seemed endless, really. Plenty of starters served at the table. Then it's off to the buffet area to ask for your choice of dishes to be cooked fresh and served hot. These are brought freshly made to your table. Great place for a slow afternoon lunch with family or friends or even for a quick business meeting. Great grub. Great ambience.

A Must Visit for Italian Food Lovers

Little Italy is a lovely place for Italian food lovers, specially if you are a vegetarian. The food is excellent and my favourite is lasagna (Absolutely Delicious), the live pasta is great too.
Its certainly one of my favourite places, highly recommended :)

Candle Light Special

Visited this place last evening. It was my wedding anniversary and had booked the candle light package. First thought at 2800 you feel it is expensive but at the end of the evening, totally worth is what u would say it. They actually have a candle light package menu with loads of options that you can choose from. Of course, a reference to the a la carte calls for if you need to understand each item. Started with the house red wine (was just ok) followed by nachos (my all time fav), bruschette. Had decided to order crositi but the waiter suggested bruschette. Was disappointed. For the unknown, its your regular bread piece topped with tomato pieces. Wondering why was it suggested in the first place. Main course was a small pizza (you can order 2) and veg cheese lasagna. The latter was just WOW!! At the end of starters, I had not even wet my taste buds but by the end of my lasagna I felt wouldn't eat for the next 3 meals at least. Had chocolate bomb for desserts. if your not a chocolate freak unlike me, don't order as the chocs literally explodes in this :) . Overall, memorable experience. Won brownie points from my wife for the decoration (heart shaped balloons, bouquet and a mango cheesecake cake with candle and seating at the corner with almost no disturbance.). Staff was helpful and courteous. MUST VISIT. Only thing I would recommend, the management can consider having a sofa/couch seating for patrons choosing this package and a little more privacy !! The manager mentioned they get at least 4 such dinners every week . All the more the reason it should be considered.

Amazing Italian food

I just love this restaurant! I have gone there three times with friends and family. And I have ordered food home a zillion times. I am amazed at the taste of Pizza Mellino, perhaps the best pizza I have tasted around the world (I am a vegetarian and so have limited choice). I also like their tortilla chips with salsa, special crostini, pummorola pasta with fresh tomato sauce, corleone salad and delicious banana pancakes. Always ready to eat there!

My Most Favorite Italian Restaurant

I am a regular at Little Italy and I just love the food, ambience and the staff. I always visit with my family, and every single member has always had a good experience here. The interiors are great, the staff is very courteous and kind, they serve in time and their food is the best! Little Italy is one of those restaurants which has maintained the same quality and taste in so many years.

Perfect place for candle light dinner...

Had been to this place for my birthday with my spouse and son and trust me it was a memorable one.

The table to set for both of us along with a high chair for my son. The heart shaped ballons stuck around our table , and a sweet little bouquet of flowers on the table made the ambience a romantic one.

The staff were friendly and assisted us with ordering the best that suits our preference.
Though i dont prefer veg food, this place was an expection to it. Right from the starters till the desset , everything was just perfect. My son loved the think crust pizza and i am impressed with their pasta.

The choclate bomb was delicious, and the strawberry cheese cake given for my birthday was blissful. They played the birthday son and also took pics which they shared with me via email.

Thank you so much to the little italy staff for making my birthday a memorable one...

Regards,
Vanitha

Great Food

we went to this place around 8:30 it just looked lovely , the ambience was just perfect . the moment we looked at the menu , the dishes were really weird , thankfully the place has real friendly staff who help you out in choosing the best for the evening . The garlic bread and thin crust pizza was bang on , but the soup was little disappointing . the onion rings , the tomato bruschetta , the lasagne was just delicious , it might burn a hole in your pocket , but its worth all the money.

Great Evening!!

Had been there for a candle light dinner with my wife. It was my wife's birthday and I had booked the 'candle light package'. This included a well decorated table in the corner along with balloons on the walls, artificial plants on the sides, a standing flower bouquet, and a preset food menu. I must say it is a well designed concept that fits the ambience of the place.

The service is very good and the waiters are very friendly. It was a weekday then so it wasn't very crowded till about 9.30. But people began to show up soon after. I suggest that if you are looking for some alone time with your wife then plan to be there by 7.30-8.00 on a weekday.

The menu options included - cocktails/mocktails/wine, soups, starters, pizza, pasts and dessert. Apart from this, they also arranged for a cheese cake and some music to celebrate the birthday. We were later emailed some pics of this celebration which they had clicked.

This is a place serving only vegetarian food so I was already biased when I planned to go here; turned out to be completely worthy. Some cons to it are that the price is a little on the higher end and the background music is not that great.

In all, it was a very nice experience and my wife loved it. Its a must try for all the couples.

Good food

It might be right to say 'Good food is costly'. Well I loved the lasagna here and I especially loved their garlic bread. The thin-crust pizzas were good too. I loved my mocktail which the bartender suggested I try. In short, visiting this place often might just empty your pocket but it worth a try.

Italiano!

I have been to Little Italy on 100 ft road a couple of times in the past BEFORE it was moved further down the lane. Initially, they had a big restaurant (huge house converted) but now it mainly operate in another house with majority of the sitting/buffet etc spread along a converted car porch area. But then, they have now added a bar (Thought the old one had only wine and wine cocktails due to a school nearby. The new one is pretty close to the New Horizon Public School too. Not sure how these bar/restaurants get license when they are very close to schools?).

I recently visited the place as part of a team lunch - this time on buffet - and found that the food tastes still good but then pricing is unreasonable too. The ingredients used are always fresh and tasty but the problem starts when you customize the food with more toppings.

The buffet is pretty lean with one starter, two soups, couple of desserts, assorted bread, one soft drink, assorted pizzas and one live pasta counter, 2 salads, cut fruits and two desserts. It's actually pretty limited supply for a 399+ tax (on weekdays) pricing. Soups and starters are forgettable and pasta/pizza/desserts pretty good. I think Italian buffet meal concept is something which is yet to shape up!

My rating:

Ambiance: 3/5 (Old place was better, I think)
Food quality/taste: 4/5
Service: 3.5/5
VFM: 2.5/5 (Due to exorbitant pricing especially on Sunday buffet and on other days when you customize your pasta/pizza)

Final verdict: Go there only for a different taste i.e. pure vegetarian Italian food. On weekdays stick to basic buffet, Avoid buffet on Sundays which is priced at 599 + tax

I am giving 3 mainly because of the pricing, the quantity of food served on ala carte, else the rating would have been easily 4. Having said that, the ingredients such as olive oil, good cheeses, herbs/spices used may be very expensive and they are probably finding it difficult to strike a balance.

A nice eveing @ Little Italy :-)

It was just around 4-5 hours intimation and they had a table and the space around it decorated so very well with Balloons.. flowers .. Candle light ...cheese Cake...They special menu... All for Just a very nominal price....Even though we were Non vegetarian lovers... we really enjoyed our vegetarian meal... that was healthy :-) From the soups to the Desert every bite was a treat for the taste buds....
Thank you all for making our evenin such a special memory to Cherish!!!!!

answer to veg Italian craving!

Every time I have visited this place I have returned gastronomically satisfied. There is consistency in the flavours. Quantity is perfect. Service is decent. Their Pizzas are very authentic. The best part is they customise your orders to Jain variety if need be. I keep coming back for more.

Please make your soups better

Hi,

I am a regular visitor at the Koramangala Little Italy and had gone again on saturday evening with my fiancée to celebrate an occasion. Ordered the minestrone soup to start with. It just turned out to be regular vegetarian soup with chunks of veggies. Not expected. This soup used to be my fav at Italian restaurants in US. Even basic knowledge of the soup would tell you that the soup is supposed to be: a thick vegetable soup, often containing herbs, beans, bits of pasta, etc., and served with Parmesan cheese. I am not sure why feedback is not being considered, especially since I notice that there is a feedback on this page for the same soup from 21-11-2012

After spending about 1490 on the food there, neither of us were satisfied with the quality of food served. Extremely disappointing.

Regards,
Regular visitor at Little Italy, Koramangala

Awesome Italian Restro

Hi If you are tired of having a good Italian Cuisine in Bangalore, definitely this is a place to hang out. The beauty of the place is that it has limited its cuisine to Veg and the pizza's are too good and Pastas are yummy. However, the taste of pasta's are so good and they are just up to the perfect. If you have visited Italy, you may find a compatible dish here called Baloones.

Service is good 4/5
Ambiance 3.5/5
Overall 4/5

Great place for Vegetarians!

1. Is it easy to find - Yes, the place is located just a few meters from main road. If you have any difficulties finding it, asking around or directly call the restaurant for directions will work out. (they are pretty warm)
2. Atmosphere - I had been there on a sunny sunday afternoon. The place was lighten up with yellow lights making the place look calm and serene. There was crowd ranging from couples, group of friends to fully fledged joint families, all having fun under the same roof with some great food.
3. Menu - The menu is pretty decent, or I would say, much better than any other vegetarian italian restaurant. It has a wide range of dishes you can choose from :)
4. My Order - We went for the oh so famous brunch buffet which the restaurant serves from Monday to Sunday. The buffet was set outdoor with live pastas,salads and pizzas of your choice (as in you can choose your toppings, fillings, etc ...). Starters were awesome !
5. Service - Service fell short a tad bit, which I feel was because the restaurant was full. But I still would not accept it since a restaurant of that caliber should have provisions to pull in more people if they feel service is getting low.
6. Bar - The place has a bar but it does not have too many options apart from a few selected brand of wine and champagne.
7. Price - Above Average. But I would not complain since food was great !
8. Conclusion - Little Italy is a great place for vegetarian italian food lovers since it has a wide range of varieties to choose from. It might look a bit costly but the taste of the food compensates it and you feel that money was not wasted. A must if you are a vegetarian and visit bangalore ! Non-Vegetarians should avoid the place :)

Good service..

Am from Chennai. Visited Little Italy yesterday and had the buffet brunch. Wouldn't make complaints on the taste criterion.. The service is what makes this place worth many visits. They treat you well even on a busy Sunday afternoon. They make quick service when we ask for more of starters, juices and pizzas, that are served straight to the table. The live counters for salads, pastas and pancakes made my visit more interesting. Could have been better if they had replaced their food containers as soon as they were over. Nevertheless, overall it was good and worth dining. I may visit this place again , when I hit Bengaluru.

Good Sunday Brunch

I have been a regular here for past year or so. tried the Sunday brunch last week. The starters and pizza were served on the table, both lovely. pizza were crisp thin crust and great. They have a live salad and pasta counter where we choose what to put in the dishes. My daughter loved the pancake counter where the pancakes are made fresh. Overall, satisfying and a good experience again here.

Good Food, but stay away from buffet

Well this is an account of my past three visits and I would say food is really tasty whether its Pasta or Pizza, however my personal favourite is Sauteed Mushroom which I have always found tasty. On one of my visits to this place with a large group we decided to opt for buffet and frankly speaking buffet was really a let down.

Returned from US after 12 years and went to Little Italy.. You get 2 star food for the price of a 5 star.. I can make better pastas at home.. You can really go this restaurant if you want to waste money!!! Horrible.. NOT WORTH

Reply from restaurant management

Dear Arushi,

Thanks for coming over and for your feedback. While you are indeed entitled to your opinion, pl allow me to clarify on the two points raised by you. 1. Pricing - Our prices are not at all comparable to the restaurants under the 5 star category, they are much lower indeed. But yes they are comparable to the restaurants in the fine dine category, and we do fall in this category.
2. Pastas - While I am sure that you are a great cook and do make excellent pastas at home (nothing beats home cooked food at the end of the day), let me also add that our pastas sure are a hit and do get rave reviews (constantly) from our guests, and even from the first time visitors (US returned, Europe Returned, Indian born, all and sundry). We do of course have regulars who have been coming to us for years now just to have the Pasta Gambaza , the ever popular Pasta Barbaresca and the noble Pasta Del Barone.
I am not sure as to which pasta you might have had, but probably it may not have suited your taste buds and that is indeed unfortunate. But if you are willing to give it another shot pl do come by and have some of our recommended pastas. I am sure we will be able to serve you something that appeals to you; in the process change your strong opinion and hopefully get more stars from you on your next visit. :-)

Thanks again and do visit us.

Team, Little Italy.

Good Ambiance. Food and Service can be better.

Good ambiance and lighting. The menu will overwhelm you if you go there the first time. It's just the serial numbers that make it look heavier than it is ;)

Food is good , but doesn't give you a feeling of satisfaction or money's worth after. Service wasn't satisfactory either, I had to ask for a glass of water thrice before it came.
Final word: Slightly disappointing.

Not as good as the Indiranagar outlet

I had visited the Indiranagar outlet couple of years ago, and remember having good Italian food, so tried out the Koramangala outlet last night with family.
The decore is good enough, and the service staff is courteous and knowledgeable.
We were not too hungry so had simple meal comprising of minestrone soup, caesars salad, pizza napoli and one other salad.
The food was only average and the pizza and soup were just not upto the mark.
Thankfully they didn't mess up the ice tea and souffle, but overall merely an average meal when we expected more...

Nice atmosphere

Nice atmosphere and good cocktails. Sadly, the cocktails are better than the food in my opinion. The food is pretty good, but seems to be lacking something and is way too heavy for my taste. Personally, I find this place slightly overrated. I'm on the fence, but am willing to go back and give it another shot.

No Non-Veg, but otherwise its decent

Me and my wife went to Little Italy(Koramangala) on a weekday for lunch-buffet, we were shown a table, the ambiance was very good. They have both Italian and Mexican dishes. They have a garden just behind the restaurant neatly maintained. The staff were friendly, but it looked as though they were little confused(will get to this later) in getting the dishes to the right table.

The starters were decent. There was cheese-corn balls, not sure what it is called, with salsa dip and was splendid. Then there were the live counters of pizzas and pastas. You choose what you like, and the staff will bring it to your table. This is where the staff seemed to be confused. They went and almost put our pastas to the table next to us where people were having team lunch. That team were confused as well.

The desserts were OK. There was supposed to be a strawberry cheese cake, because we saw that when going for pasta, but it got over by the time we went back for desserts. We decided not to wait for the cake. This was the not-so-great part.

Above all, things would have been much better if they had non-veg in their menus. So in case you are a carnivore, you are not gonna get much unless you are a fan of pastas and pizzas(I am).

Ambiance - 9/10
Food(Taste) - 8/10
Food(Choice) - 6/10 (this is personal - only because there is no non-veg)
Staff Attitude - 7/10

Disappointing Dinner – Watch what you Eat !!!!!

Last week I has extracted couple of tooth and was on non spicy and semi liquid food, After which I decided to treat myself with a good dinner, After much thought I decided to go to Little Italy with my wife.

We were welcomed by a smile and shown us a table, We ordered few soft drinks and Masala Garlic Bread, nothing special about the dish, Then we ordered Lasanga Alla which was good considering all the cheese it had.

All our trouble started with our next order which was a pizza (don’t remember what we ordered), The moment I took my first bite I was in immediate pain, Cause it had a stone in it and it struck me where my tooth was extracted. The same moment I told the waiter said I found a stone in it, The manager or someone came and said sorry for the mishap, But what struck me was the bizarre explanation he gave, He said since it was a wood fired pizza stone might have come in it.

Having had the experience I had no interest in eating further, and cancelled the order and replaced it with the same Lasanga dish,

Although they promptly did not charge me for the second dish, I am really unhappy with the whole experience, Even before the bill came I had anticipated that I would not be given the comment card, and they proved me right by not giving one, I asked them personally and the moment I started to write they came and said sorry again, That is why I didn’t write anything and just left my contact number for them to call back, which I have not received yet.

Hope management take better corrective action plan so that another customer will not get stones in their dish.

Just in case the management wants to check we were there on 24/8/2012 at 21:00.

Delight for Vegetarians

Absolutely fantastic variety of dishes available... Being a vegetarian, it has always been very hard to have lots of choice... I love pasta, and it's been a great delight to see all those dishes... The cannelloni was the best of all that I tried... Quiet and a very nice place to sit and chat... We didn't even realize how time went by... Unfortunately, due to the huge quantities of food served, I couldn't taste the desserts... I would certainly go by again to taste their desserts...

Dear Neeraja,

It was great to have you over and Thanks a lot for your fantastic review and feedback. Since you are a pasta lover, i do encourage you to try the Pasta Gambaza or the Pasta Del Barone when you come over next time. Do try our thin crust pizzas too, maybe a Tabasco or a Napoli to start with. And yes do leave some space for the desserts this time around. I would want you to try the chocolate mousse cake , or the chocolate bomb. Of course our staff would be glad to assist you in making the right choice.

warm regards

Wheres the Wine?

Despite the date with a rat last time at Little Italy, I wanted to give the place a second chance as I have always liked the food and had been a patron for years. This time, I was disappointed a second time. The food was good but it was the wine that I would have loved with my pasta that went MISSING

I made a reservation over the phone before i went to the place. I would expect to be informed about the missing bar menu ( possibly because of the missing permit )..

Getting to learn about the non availability after asking for it, put me off.

Nevertheless, the food as as usual , at its best. The family loved the food ! ( Hence the increase in rating , from last time !)

Lovely as before!

I went to Koramangala branch of Little Italy after almost a year last Saturday for dinner. We had gone to watch a movie in forum so this was the preferred place to go eat. I was hoping the food is still good as I remembered it and was not disappointed. There was some wait when I got there as we had not done a reservation, but it wasn't too long and we got a table on their first floor. It has gone through some changes from my last visit and it has definitely improved. The service was friendly and attentive. For food we had the Fondue as a starter. My son just loves it and would not pass up on it. He tried the Dead Woman Walking mocktail, also nice, a little sweet for my taste but he loved it, I had the fresh lime soda which was fine. We had the Barbaresca pasta with Ravioli and it was scrumptuous, just as good as I remembered from last time. We also had a thin crust pizza, i think sicilia which was also perfect. my son went for the chocolate bomb and we all shared it. all in all a good outing, great place awesome food, friendly service. Keep it up!

bad experience

had been to lil italy in kormangala coupla weeks back(cos its near to our place) and was totally disappointed with the buffet.compared to the indira nagar branch were drinks are unlimited here its only once you get to have the drink of ur choice.in indira nagar the food that was served was very fresh and so was the ambience.but in koramangala the food was stale and not attractive.u r welcomed by a bunch of flies the minute u enter.overall a very disappointing experience.would definitely not mind travelling few extra kms to visit the indira nagar branch to enjoy a proper food thats worth the money we pay!!!

Hi Ohmyfud,

Greetings !!
At the outset seems that the brunch menu needs some re-explanation as from your mail it does seem clear that there is a communication issue here. Moreover let me also add that we do not serve state food. (in fact in the cuisine that we offer, thats just not possible. Again it never has or can never happen at any of the Little Italy branches). But I understand that there may be something which may have put you off during your visit, and for me understanding that is very critical. This will help address the core issue here. So would be great if you can share your contact no (pl send on littleitaly.kora@gmail.com) or alternatively call on 080 41114034. I would definitely like to talk to you and understand in more detail.

regards

Superb food. great for vegetarians!

Finally a place where vegetarians rule the roost. The food is scrumptious although minestrone soup was a little bland than at other places. I highly recommend the pastas. My friends had good things to say about the Mexican menu as well.
The Little Italy at Hyderabad was as good as the Koramangala one. Its expensive but definitely worth it.

Greetings my friend,

Thanks for coming over and giving us the opportunity to serve you and your friends. I am glad you liked our food, especially our pastas. Yes we do have a lot on offer for vegetarians, and you are right by saying that they indeed rule the roost. But I am also thankful to all our non-vegetarian patrons who have referred us to their friends and have themselves relished our fare with equal zest.

We will definitely look into your feedback on the minestrone soup, hopefully tune it to your liking on your next visit.

Look forward to your next visit soon. And Thank You once again for sharing your feedback with all.

Little Italy is the Gustav's of Ratatouille Fame

Yes, the place is rat infested.

I was a regular patron of the restaurant ( Decided to never go there again after yesterday's incident)

I was there yesterday with my girlfriend and another friend and were hoping to have a nice experience as usual. But to our shock, we saw a rat , a huge one run across the bar counter (we were seated in a table across the bar counter) and jump onto the floor and run into the kitchen.

If a patron can see a rat in the dining area of a restaurant, I really wonder how the kitchen and storage are maintained. I hope the rats dont cook food in there, like in the movie !!!!!

What was more pathetic was that the staff were totally indifferent to the incident and carried on as if it was a normal day to day thing !!

The previous time, both my girl friend and I fell sick after eating out at Little italy , but attributed it to the choice of mushrooms and the wine bottle we ordered. We had frequented the place a lot of times before, but never had such an experience.

I do not think it is a good idea anymore to go out there , spend good money only to get unhygenic food or eat in a place where rats are treated on par with guests!!!!

Dear friend,

This incident did occur on the day of your visit and let me tell you this; such one-off incidents are probably one of the worst nightmares of a restaurateur. We do have a (lovely) thickly wooded garden area facing the insides of the restaurant, and this of course adds to the ambiance and overall experience of our guests. We however had an unexpected visitor the other day from our neighborhood garden, a first since we opened 3 years back. Our visitor had burrowed a small hole on the garden side of the bar and scampered in. While our friend was quickly sent packing home by the alert staff, it did however do enough damage, even if unintentionally so. While your outburst is justifiable (I too would have reacted in a similar manner), believe me for us too this was a rare, one-off visit. Moreover our service staff have been taught to keep their calm (be assured this is not indifference) and they quickly acted and did what needed to be done under the circumstances. Needless to say, we have already done what needs to be done to avoid our (friendly) neighbors’ from barging in ever, unannounced. While we love animals and do not ever intentionally harm our friends, we also follow a policy of intolerance to such instances (Our guests definitely come above all the rest.)
So my friend, we are not rat infested, and while I can say this repeatedly; that we follow extremely strict hygiene and quality processes in storing food as well as in cooking it. However one believes what he sees. So the next time you are around, I’d like to offer you a trip to the kitchen, store or any other area that you may want to see.
What has happened cannot be undone, but please accept our sincere apologies for this. Yes like you, I too would have vowed never to go to such as place again. But having said this, I can only request you to re-assess this situation now. I am sure you would appreciate that it was not entirely our fault, and that you would be kind enough to give as a second chance. We would be thrilled to have you back. I am sure we would succeed in changing your perception given another chance, and gain your patronage back.

Warm regards

Mixed feelings

TIPS:
- Take tables against the window, the greenery is a nice change from the bustling city environment.
- If you're looking to try a little (really little) bit of everything, take the buffet. However, if you're looking for a proper three course meal, go for the A la carte menu.
- The apetizers are good, but nothing unique. The pizza and lasagna sets Little Italy apart. Don't leave without trying both.
- I paid Rs. 1500 for two for a lunch buffet. Expect your cheque to be in a smiliar range.

My overall impression of the restaurant was positive, but I have much feedback to give. I ate at the lunch buffet on Saturday, April 7th, 2012, and I got mixed feelings throughout. Here's a summary of my thoughts:

1) The ambience (4/5)
While the feel of the restaurant is top notch, there are quite a few flaws. I sat in the restaurant for around 2.5 hours, and during this time, I heard Ne-Yo, Shakira, Enrique, Britney Spears, some western country music, and a very random assortment of music that didn't really suit the ambiance that you were trying to create. Maybe you should try putting some instrumental European music; it's a small change to make, but quite the difference for people who come for the experience and not just the food. I loved the decor, but it felt too tribal and African to be present in Little Italy. While I understand that not much can be done about it, if you ever do renovate, please don't paint stick figures of naked women on the portraits on your walls :P. And finally, I don't know about all the tables, but the corner table against the window of the ground floor which is a two seater has one short leg, and wobbles quite a fair bit. You might want to get that fixed.

2) The menu (4/5)
I didn't take a look at the A la carte menu, and only glanced at the buffet menu. To bluntly put it, I counted 7 different fonts within a single page. Considering that I expected a fine dining experience, looking at a menu that looks like it came from a low standard dhaba really irked me. When you recreate the menu, keep in mind to keep it simple, professional, and clean. Don't put too many shapes or colours to avoid making it look like something from Pizza Hut. The choices in the menu themselves were good though.

3) The service (5/5)
One of the flawless aspects of the restaurant. I didn't just notice how I was treated, but how other guests were treated as well, and I really liked it. No further comments.

4) The buffet (3/5)
I got up 2 times to take food, once for the main course, and another for the desert. The first time I got up, I distinctly noticed that there were flies gathering around and sitting on some of the food on display. It bothered me immensely, because hygiene is of utmost importance to me. However, the second time I got up, I saw who I believe was the Manager, directing the waiters to remove the food that flies had gathered around, and get a fresh batch. This wasn't intimidated by any customer, it was a move on the part of the restaurant itself, which is commendable. But what you need to remember is that it shouldn't be happening in the first place at all! Rearrange the layout so that it's entirely avoided next time. I think people would prefer the food to be inside, palatable, and less gorgeous looking, than to have it outside, looking beautiful, yet having flies on it and being unhygenic.
Secondly, the portions. Most of the buffet was served to me as I walked past the counters. I would prefer to be served, but when I am being served, I expect portions that are not bite sized. I'm not here for a food-tasting party, it's lunch. The lasagna, cheesecake, and brownie were served in really tiny portions to me, which is something that I didn't like. If I'm ever in a situation where I'm being served and the waiter is cutting too large a piece, I'd prefer to say 'serve me a smaller piece please' rather than to tell him to give me a larger piece; its awkward for me.

5) The food (5/5)
Exquisite, to say the least. I loved the main course, the thin crust pizza and lasagna is to die for. If I ever eat A la carte, I'll probably skip directly to the main course. I took my time, and enjoyed the food. I really regret not being able to try the pasta though, but I'm glad I'm saving it for another time.

Droolworthy Italian fare

A great place for that Romantic Italian dinner for two. I am not a pizza person, but their authentic italian thin crust pizzas make me go weak in the knees.. and great pastas as well. Pleasant and friendly staff, and a good ambience make the experience worth going back to again and again

Great Sunday Brunch option

If you are looking for a different lunch buffet option over the weekend this is a great option especially if you are bored with the regular roti, dal and gravies of Bangalore.

Located quite conveniently near forum mall, restaurant offers valet parking, I have booked my table in advance but the place was not very crowded.

I initial wanted to go with the Al a Carte but my daughter insisted on the buffet.

There are different live counters for salads, Pizzas, Pastas, Oriental rice.

Soup and starters are served at the table.

Overall a different buffet experience.

Would definitely recommend this place.

Cockroach in watermelon juice

Horrible non-veg watermelon juice (cockroach in watermelon juice)!!! For my family and myself the first and last time in this restaurant. For a dinner for four (paying about 3000 INR) I don't accept cockroaches to be served.
Only positive to mention the coakroach juice and the dessert we got for free.

Decent Lunch Buffet

Went out for lunch buffet on 29-Dec. The Buffet is decent for the price. Soup and starters are served at the table along with an non-alcoholic drink/fresh juice. Onion Rings were ok. too much chat masala on them. The Garlic bread and cheese balls were good.
For the main course, the live pasta counter serves out some decent dishes. There is 3 verities of pizzas avlbl as well. The thin base pizza is very good. Light and fulfilling.
The deserts are passable. Ice cream, brownie and fruits. There was a cup of cheesecake which I am not sure was cheese cake.

there were a couple of Salads also on the buffet, but I would have prefered a green salad instead of a pasta salad.

Like the other reviewers noted below, service leaves a lot to be desired. The waiters seem all disjointed. They have a glazed look on their face when you ask them something. They cannot pronounce the Italian dishes, cannot suggest wines .. my opinion is they lack training. Language skills are also quite bad.

Living up to the expectation

Went to this nice and cozy place on Tuesday for a dinner to celebrate my birthday. Starters were bang for money. Bread was soft, cheese was delicious. Loved everything we ordered. My wife loved the thin crust pizza so much that she wanted to have it next day too. Very unlike her as she is not a fan of thin crust. We ordered for a mocktail "chiller" which was again nice, mix of grape juice, lime and mint. Had to drive back so no liquor or cocktaiils. Pasta in white sauce was nice and heavy. Only salad was a little off the mark due to too much lettuce and less of other things. All in all a good experience. Keep it up guys. My second time with you and can always trust you to dish out some good food.

Pathetic service. Passable food.

Ruined my weekend lunch with family.
1. Waiters barely spoke English
2. Forgot to put in orders for two main dishes and a drink
3. Didn't have the courtesy to apologize or make amends
4. Wait staff were barely around and impossible to beckon
5. Didn't check in midway through the meal to check if everything was ok
6. Didn't refill water or bring out a new bottle
7. Didn't offer or remind us of a dessert menu towards the end of the meal

Food itself was passable. lasagna was the only saving grace. Corn fritters had goddamn chart masala. Yuck. Pizza was soggy. Potato skins was great. The bruschettas were sad. Pesto was a total fake.

Good thing we skipped the Sun buffet which had flies sitting on open food. We should have run right then and there!

This comes from a long time patron of authentic Italian restaurants all over the US. Little Italy is a sad story.

fantastic food and service

We had been there for lunch on our wedding anniversary date. I had heard a lot about the place, but never gone there. Maybe because when we eat out, we like to eat non-veg or maybe we dont eat out that often at all. Whatever the reason, my wife had stopped eating meat and we picked on this place - two reasons, it being vegetarian and it served liquor.

We reached the place rather late for the afternoon buffet and they were gracious enough to wait on us as we sipped our beer and took our time. They served us the starters from the buffet and made us fresh pasta and pizza. We almost had the whole place to ourselves. Fantastic ambiance and we had a great time!

Very very nice

Went there a couple of days on a weekday for dinner and returned completely satisfied taste buds.

The location is a bit odd, sort of tucked in an off-street, but the place is neat and well decorated.

The menu is very elaborate.. infact giving one a huge list of options for every category - starters, course 1 , course 2 etc.

The waiters are knowledgeable about all the dishes on the menu…
… come to food…
We ordered one of the specialty pasta and another spaghetti dish to add to a bruschetta.
Well everything was soooo yummy.. right from the aroma of fresh cheese and herbs to.. the taste of it …
Very very good that’s all what I can say.
Other things… nice service, good décor… not sure if seating is enough if it gets crowded on a weekend.

Surely a place for repeat visits…

Really..!! A magical experience..!! : )

I got to know about this restaurant approximately 10 days back and i want to say the restaurant was truly amazing. I went to this restaurant on 3rd of November with my first ever girlfriend for a candle light dinner. On mine and my girlfriend's first date ever in both of our lives, the restaurant gave me a BIG thumps up. I really had very few knowledge about Italian food but it worked out very well than i expected. : )

What the both of us loved -

The food (Loved the pizza, would recommend it the best in bangalore)
The drink
The ambiance
The service

But i didn't understand one of the waiters accent, after that an another guy came and corrected him. What i seriously didn't like was one of the staff there was staring at my girlfriend till we got out, this was a huge disappointment for me after a memorable experience.

Entirely - LOVED the candle light dinner, a really special place for me and my girlfriend. A must visit place if you're going for a candle light dinner. An amazing place for pizza lovers.

I'm thanking the entire staff of little italy koramangala for making my date, a one to remember. I'm already planning to come back to this restaurant (only if the staff doesn't stare at my girlfriend again. : D)

Great job,
Team little italy of koramangala. : )

One of my favs :-)

This is one restaurant I repeat a lot. Since i have visited the place first around two years ago i have been to the place many number of times now. I have taken almost everyone i know to this place :-P Never got time to write a review before so here it is...

The food here is really good and love the way they have made veggies, kings :) Drinks are also quite nice but a bit overpriced for the place i feel. Food is simply yum ranging from starters to dessert. You have a lot of options too so you can never get bored even if you visit it more than even twice or thrice.

I also experienced the Sunday brunch they had a few months ago and surprisingly it was as good as all the ala carte meals i had there!

I love this place for the veggie Italian food which tastes great, good service, ambiance, lots of options on the menu and everything else :-)
A highly recommended place for those who haven't been here even once. That goes for non-veg lovers too..

One star less than perfect coz the place is really really good but not yet what i would call perfect.

I loved this place for many things. Awesome ambiance, it's an exclusively vegetarian Italian restaurant, and there is great food on the menu. Since I found out this restaurant also belongs to same chain as La Pizzeria in Pune, I decided to treat my family here on my birthday. I loved the Cheesy Nachos, the pizzas, pastas and the my all time favorite- lasagne. I would love to visit more often.

Italian Emotions

Tucked in a cozy corner, just behind Manchester United, I fell in love with the place instantly, enter the place and the ambiance is amazing, soothing to be precise, excellent decor and excellent music going on.
This was my first fine-dining experience and I think this was a pretty good place to start off, the garlic breads and mushrooms were delicious.
The main course offers you an amazing slew of pastas... catering to every possible taste. Well I didn't have a clue what to choose but the waiters there new what they were doing and we had an amazing dinner. Many of notions about pizza's were broken an I tasted the best pizza ever - Sicilian.
A tad expensive, but well worth it.... I am waiting for the next excuse to visit again :)

A meat lover missing non-veg? No WAY!!

Lovely ambience. The tastiest Italian restaurant I've been to in India. And its surprizing how much variety they have in their menu and to think that all of it is vegetarian. I'm a hardcore meat lover (people joke that I can eat anything that moves and crawls) and was a bit low on expectation the first time about the food. But my oh my, was I in for a sweet surprise. Everything I ordered here was so damn tasty, I did not miss meat at all!! Loved the drinks they served too. The only thing I order is a long island iced tea and I would never go back to a place that doesnt know how to make a good one. Well I've been here about 4 or 5 times already. And happy to come back again :)

Excellent food!

We went there for the weekend buffet. To our pleasant surprise the manager suggested we sit at the table and all the dishes would be served to us at our table. No standing in line serving your self and going back for seconds. This was nice because it felt like a la carte but without the hassle of deciding what to order. The food was fantastic. The pizzas were delicious - not the chain style heavily breaded stuff you usually get. Thin crust, very flavorful. The lasagna and pastas were very tasty. For appetizers I think we had nachos with cheese, bruschetta, spinach and cheese dip and some others. All in all a good experience. I will probably try a la carte next time. I usually don't prefer vegetarian restaurants when we go out to eat but we'll certainly be back for this. Hope they keep it up.

Amazing place for a candle light dinner

I was planning a surprise candle lite dinner for my husband in his bday and came across this place. Initially was bit hesitant whether to try this place as it is purely veg and also didn't wanted to spoil the eve. But reading all good review about this place I went and booked their Candle Lite Dinner package and trust me ,we liked the arrangement,service and food very much. Our table was nicely decorated with candles,bouquet and rose petals. Food was delicious .They actually greeted my husband with a birthday card . :) We are actually planning to visit that place again in near future. I strongly recommend this place for a GOOD CANDLE LIGHT DINNER.

Thanks,

Good A La Carte

Been to this place many times with friends and once with colleagues. A La Carte is good. After eating here, I have stopped eating the regular pizza hut/dominos types. But the one time I went for a buffet it was not as great, as they brought the starters for far too long and the main dishes were just ok.

After my couple of visits to their ITPL (no longer there, now) outlet, I was longing to take my family here.... believe it or not... for past almost an year. For a glutton like us, this was unacceptable. Finally we visited today and it turned out to be a victory to me- a pleasant surprise to Her!!

The Bruschetta, Onion Rings, Sicilia and Pasta was awesome and we promised to return here- a first for a vegetarian restaurant!

Avoid Buffet, go for ala carte

At my first visit to this place, i opted for the weekday buffet to sample a wider spectrum of their menu. I would not recommend this buffet at all, and feel it should be discontinued. It was deficient in many aspects and considering it cost (with taxes) ~440 Rs per person, it made me feel short changed.
The taste of the liquid cheese on the nachos (starters) was not pleasant, a few of the other items simply tasted like a cheese-cream hybrid devoid of taste and specially salt, while the thin crust pizza from the buffet was served cold and as a result the fat in the cheese had coagulated.
However I did like the pasta from the live pasta station and the chocolate mousse was the only saving grace.
So the overall verdict is-avoid the weekday buffet since nothing in it will bowl you over, try the ala carte since I expect its items to be more bespoke hence better

Great Food & IPL to boot

I had a craving for Little Italy this Sunday evening and visited the Koramangala branch with a bunch of friends. We were in two minds since we didn't want to miss the IPL match (yes we are a bunch of cricket heads!). We were pleasantly surprised when we were offered to be seated on the 1st floor where they had a big screen projection of the IPL match and the sound of the match was piped through their speakers.. We were in heaven :-)

Oh yes, as always food was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Great pizza and pasta. Loved the cheese cakes and chocolate bomb. We are planning to be there again this weekend for the match!!

Wonderful Experience

I have been here many times on the previous occasion with my office colleagues and tried the weekday buffet and that was not at all tasty. However this time I went there with a few friends and ordered bruschetta (don't remember the real name of the starter).Ordered one more starter in between and they brought it in no time that was excellent. In the main course we had one Pasta and two Pizza (Masala Mafia and other I do not remember ) , they were just awesome.

I very much liked the ambiance and the service and would look forward to coming to this place again and again.

Absolute favourite!!

Place we keep going back to. Kids have their favourite choices of pasta, garlic bread and chocolcate bomb leaving us the option to order options from the wide variety they offer. Being a vegetarian joint with desserts that are eggless makes the kids and us as well really enjoy the entire fare the restaurant offers

Worst Italian Buffet!

I had some seriously high hopes with Little Italy based on my experiences from 2 years ago with their Indira Nagar branch and this just about crashed after my disasterous lunch buffet this week! Nachos and cheese balls were up as appetizers..when did this become italian??? Then came up crostinis with cheese spread and 2 black olives ....no tomatoes...so not too sure what to call this. The rest of the meal comprised of a pizza which was loaded with cheese and a mount of spinach on each slice, rissotto which actually left me wondering if he had used rice instead of risotto! The live station was a saving grace as I could figure out the concot I wanted and come up with the best based on the available ingredients! Desserts...hmmmm brownie which was cut 1x1 inch (any tinier and it would have been invisible!), vanilla ice cream, Chocolate sauce (more like chocolate + water) and banana cheesecake (which was probably the only decent bit of food I had!). In all, my experience here was BAD! While some may say its a buffet, but I disagree,would have done an alacarte in a decent joint, got a smaller bill and much better taste!

Just AWESOME

I was a bit apprehensive about trying out this place. I am a pukka non vegetarian, so when my girlfriend told me about this veg place, I went along grudgingly. And boy, was I surprised. The food was outstanding. This is the only pure veg restaurant I go to in Bangalore. In fact my friends laughed at me when I recommended a pure veg italian place. But they too became a fan of Little Italy. I love the thin crust pizzas; the best in town. I always order bruschetta in every Italian place. I judge a place based on how good their bruschetta is. It was terrific to say the least. Simplicity at its best. Guys, give this place a try. Even the pukka non veg wallas.

Good but expensive

The food is good but very expensive. Not a place one can afford to visit frequently. Also their menu is miles long. They should try and shorten it so that one can leaf thru the entire thing and make a good selection of food instead of a hurried one looking at the first couple of pages itself.Tried their pizza and crostini. Both were great. lasagna was bit of a disappointment but overall a good experience

Quick fix kit!

You know you're in Koramangala doing something you cant remember, this is the place for the ultimate quick fix that one can get, a quick pizza, a great dessert and an amazing ambiance with an inviting bar section (not an exhaustive one, but well, serves the purpose)

Pricey? Kind of, worth it? YES.

Fantastisch

I waited to visit the restaurant a few times before writing the review. My first time was with my office group for the buffet lunch couple of weeks ago and again last weekend with my family. Second time we actually sat in the first floor area which I was told is recently redone (was quite nice). Both times we loved the food. In buffet my favorite was the live pasta counter and the desserts...For dinner, my wife really enjoyed the mixed sauce pasta and my son didn't want to share his Margerita pizza!! We finished with the mango cheesecake and chocolate bomb, both lovely. Thorough enjoyable experience and would definitely go back.

Great food...but too many flies

I had the lunch buffet at this place and was a little disappointed to learn that they had only vegetarian dishes for the buffet. However, the food was so good that I didn't miss non-veg. There were too many flies in the restaurant which bothered me while eating. The buffet had a live pasta counter where I found "live flies" crawling on the vegetable cuts meant for the live pasta. This made be sick and I walked away from the counter.

All in all...great food...if they can keep the flies away I would love to return to have food there.

Going the wrong way ?

One of the worst things to have for a restaurant is bad service inspite of good food and Little Italy at K'mangala seems to be going this way. When I visited the restaurant 3 months back, everything seems to be good about it. But when I went there again 2 weeks back with my family, the service was just not what one would expect. To start with, inspite of a reservation made for 5, there was no specific arrangement made and we had to squeeze into a table for 4. As someone has pointed out, there was no prompt filling of water glasses. While I was placing the orders, I noticed a nicely printed leaflet on the table which had offers like free glasses of wines with some main courses. I would have expected the staff to inform me about it while I was ordering, because I did order wines along with the main courses(from the main menu); however what was shocking was that even after enquiring about it, he was trying to be ignorant and reluctant to tell me about it. I kept asking him why did they display it if they did not have the offers - to which he didn't have an answer and then he tried convincing me that the offers were only for lunch though it wasn't specified anywhere. I however was not ready to give-up and therefore called another waiter to check. To my surprise, the offers seem to be very much valid and I was then asked to choose anything from this menu. I did not expect this from a restaurant of Little Italy's reputation. There were many other aspects of service which I found lacking but not quite worth mentioning here. As many have written here, the management or the service seems to have changed and for worse ! Inspite of some good food, I for one, would have second thoughts before visiting this place again.

Superb Place

I always judge a restaurant by how well they fill the empty glass and going by those standards alone, they are brilliant. They never let the glass be empty!! Well coming back to the actual speciality- Italian food, we ordered for Garlic Bread, Potato Panini, Tortilla with Salsa, Two Pizza's and a brown rice dish. We were three people in total. We never knew portions would be so huge. Potato Panini was the show-stealer. Made with Potato peels, they tasted divine and Pizza too was very good. A non-mushroom eater I found myself devouring the entire Pizza and what adds to this place is ambience. If sitting indood, the greenery to the left is superb. A place for repeated visits

Great food..Good Ambience

Recently I went to little Italy with my fiance and really enjoyed the food. The mocktail was ok..which was obviously not wat we were looking for.The masala garlic bread was tasty and mouth smelting. The pizzas were really great and delicious. The only complain was that the toppings had more mushrooms as compared to other veggy.
And then time for desserts, out of many options we went for Chocolate Avalanche with three types of chocolate ice cream topped with fudge and chocolate sauce..hmm amazing taste.
Since we were just two ppl we cud not try out pastas, so a suggestion from my side that restaurant cud serve small pizzas and little amount of pastas so anyone cud enjoy the menu.
Overall a great experience!!!

Good food but getting to the location is a pain so started getting delivery at home. The pizzas are great if you like the thin crust kinds , lots of variety.. Other Italian main course dishes are good. nice portion sizes. Tried the Mexican dishes but they are not all that.. The guys who take the order on the phone arent very coherent so be prepared to spend more time.

Bad weekday buffet

It looks like the management of this place has changed. The drop in quality is obvious.

We chose to go for the lunch buffet(it was a weekday). When we tried to inquire about what kinds of pizza or pasta were served as part of the buffet, both the manager as well as the waiters seemed clueless. All they said was 'General, usual pizzas' - whatever that meant. Now for the food:

Minestrone soup - was decent but did taste very Indianised.
Starters - the taste was good but were cold.
Pizzas - after our experience with starters, we waited till a fresh batch of pizzas were brought.
Enchilladas - the waiter tried to bump off a left over piece of stone cold enchillada on me, which I refused. I waited till the tray was refilled.
Pasta - thankfully, there was a live counter so this was hot.
Dessert - the strawberry cheesecake and brownie were good.

Overall, I am terribly disappointed with the food. I mean how can you serve COLD food (even in a buffet)? I don't know if ala carte would have been any better. I used to love this place and came here expecting the same quality but was sorely disappointed.

Lovely place for a calm dinner

As i love Italian food and i m a veggie, this place had been in my yet to visit list for a looong time. I visited this place couple of months ago. Sorry for the late review though.
me and my husband reached this at about 8 in the eve... It was a weekday hence we did not bother to book the table earlier. though it was crowded, we got a comfy place to enjoy our dinner.. we ordered some soup (sorry dont remember which one we ordered) both of us liked the soup. Then we ordered garlic bread and onion rings for starters. I loved the garlic bread but felt that the onion rings were too oily and soggy. For main course we ordred some pizza(again forgotten which one) which tasted very good. it had the woody flavor which was liked instantly by me :) wanted to try some pasta but could not as we were already full. For dessert (though my stomach was full till the brim) i ordered a blueberry cheese cake :) first spoonful o cake into my mouth and i went mmmmmmmmm.it jus melted inside my mouth..ahhhhh what a feeling!!!..loved it to the core!!!Would like to go back sometime soon and try some pasta and risotto and lasagna. Thumbs up for this place..

Sad Experience

I went to Little Italy after reading such rave reviews abt the place on Burrrp. Thought, I will write a fiery awesome review but here it comes, all butchered. I went there for my wifey’s extended Bday celebration (03/09/2010). Booked the place a day in advance. Asked them to book the nicest table. Called them again on the day to confirm the reservation and also told them I would be reaching 15 minutes late. Disappointment starts from here. Reached @ sharp 10.00PM. There was no one at the entrance. No one to confirm the booking of the table. They asked me to go upstairs and check. Didn’t like the seating there and met one of the Managers and he said I can get a table downstairs. Waited patiently for 10 mins again. I don’t think there’s any point of booking any table there than ? Sad part no one yet to confirm the booking or to apologize for the delay.

Got my table. We already passed 15-20 minutes sitting idle. Got the menu. Read loads abt the Masala Garlic Bread, Cheese Corn Balls and Sicilia Pizza - Thin Crust on Burrp and ordered for same. Waiting killed bit of the hunger. Masala Garlic Bread turned out to be nice. Cheese Corn Balls were below expectations. It was not mushy, soft, creamy from inside but little dry. I had best cheese balls at Legend of Rocks till date. My wife didn’t eat it at all and the irony was it was her Bday I planned to celebrate. Here comes the Pizza. Waiter asked me Sir you OK with mushrooms. I was OK. I eat it but not a great fan. The Pizza had only mushrooms on it and other toppings were not to be seen. I was really kind of sad as I wanted it to be a great night to remember with great food and conversation. But right from the beginning from waiting for the table till the end it was not a experience to celebrate and I certainly woudn’t suggest you folks if you have any romantic dinner date plans to venture there.

Cheers !!!

Food is good....and Expensive.However, Quantity is sumptious. The number of customer might b low here and that might be one of the reason why service is slow.

Amazing food with a sad exp.

I would say the service was excellent - right from the guard at the door to all the waiters inside. Even the ambiance was great. Before I talk about the food I have a concern : It was my wife's B'Day yesterday. While booking the table I had told to give me the best table to which the person told me that he will give me the a corner table with a sofa. When I reached there I could already see a corner table with lighted candles and ballons but occupied by someone else. When I asked about the table I was told that there was seperate big party going on thats why they can't give me corner table. It was a little disappointing because I had booked the table one day in advance and it felt like my table was given to someone else. But still the good part was that they did brought a slice of the cake with a candle on it. Although when they played the B'Day song it was too low that I could just guess that there was a B'Day song being played and my wife never came to know that they played a B'day song. Looking at the other side I would say that food quality was very good, especially when apart from the choices of pasta you also get to choose the types of pasta. This really adds to the choice. We even tried a closed pizza which was worth trying again.

Candle light dinner experience

On our wedding anniversary on the 10th of August, we were surprised when our daughter, who lives abroad, phoned to tell us she had booked a place, a Little Italy in Koramangala for the two of us. We then browsed it on the web and landed at 9:00PM.

The ambience of the place was marvellous and we were escorted to a corner table decorated with heart shaped balloons, a lovely bouquet and candles (what else?) on the table.

We had a choice of wines, 3 types of starters, several types of pizzas and pastas as well. The food was excellent and so was the service. Waiters slid in and out without disturbing us - we had a truly memorable evening. The waiter told us that we could have 2 more glasses of wine (we had chosen a white wine from Sula) on the house. The grand finale was a small pudding cake with a tiny candle on it!!

We had a wonderful time and made our minds to come back soon again.

Thanks, Dear Daughter & Son-in-law. And thanks, Little Italy @ Koramangala!!

Barbaresca and Chocolate Bomb to die for!

I went to Little Italy Koramangala on Saturday. Even though they were pretty crowded we got a seat pretty quickly. Overall the ambiance is very good. Ground floor is very cosy and warm and there is a beautiful view of the garden through large glass windows (even at night!)

We started with the Cheese Fondue which my wife likes and is a must have for us when we go. My kids went for the Margherita pizza whereas my wife and me decided to try the Tobasco pizza. It was a bit spicy but very good. both were excellent and wood burn oven taste is lovely. We always try the Barbaresca with Penne (we also try it with Spinach Raviolli) whenever we go there. in both cases the pasta is a must have!!

To round it all up we had the Chocolate bomb and we were in Food heaven. Have been there quite a few times and our experience each time has been superb.

The Quantity is sufficient and service is great. Keep it up!!

Excellent place

I visited Little Italy, K'mangala with my wife and had a wonderful time there. The place looks much more beautiful than the earstwhile LI on 100 ft road. The waiters were very pleasant and helpful. The most striking part was that they were always smiling.
We ordered Spinaci salsa and some sauteed mushrooms with garlic bread.. both starters were good. The Spinaci Salsa was better. It was very different. For the main course, we ordered the Masala Mafia with Spagetti, and another Tortellini pasta with stuffed mushrooms and cheese. The Masala Mafia was excellent. Was not spicy (like mentioned in the menu). The Tortellini pasta was OK. Was expecting some more of cheese in it.
Overall, it was a wonderful experience, beautiful place. You definitely have to visit it to experience it.
Its not very heavy on the pocket too.

One of the best for vegetarians...

We went there (again) yesterday for dinner.

We had these items :
• Minestrone Soup (Good)
• Masala Garlic Bread (Excellent)
• Cheese Corn Balls (Excellent)
• Sundried Tomato & Olive Bruschetta (Okay)
• Sicilia Pizza - Thin Crust (Excellent)
• Veg Lasagne (Good)
• Walnut Brownie with Ice-Cream (Excellent)

Quantities (Starters) are little less for those prices. Service is good and reasonably fast. It's not very expensive, but definitely 'expensive'. But I always enjoyed being there.

I tasted in so many restaurants in Bangalore, and I can rate 'Little Italy' as one of the best.

My only complaint is that they are 'Vegetarian Only'. I cannot go there daily, as I eat vegetarian only occasionally :-)

Awesome stuff

One of the finest Italian restaurant in the country ! Amazing pasta and pizzas. I've been a regular at the Indiranagar joint but decided to head to the koramangala place since its close to my office.

And as usual wasnt disappointed. Took a friend along with me to get him away from pizza hut/corner/domino type of pizzas and i must say he more than loved it - he was already on the phone with his wife making dinner arrangements the same night !

And as always I ended with a mouth watering Tiramisu - Amazing food and as the mark twain quote on the table, i ate to my heart's content and now letting the food fight it out inside :)

"Little" Italy, "Large" experience

I ended up at this restaurant only after reading burrp reviews and I am so happy I trusted the views posted here. Right from a complete veg menu to the service and ambience, little italy provides a complete dining experience. Because it was my wife's b'day, I had requested for a bouquet to be arranged and they offered a cake with b'day song! Waiters are very courteous and service pretty quick. The soup was not as good but the nachos and pasta were real treats. Somehow the A/C had issues the day of my visit and it did take out some fun out of the great evening. I expressed the same to them via mail and they have promised to correct it. Nevertheless this is a place I am looking forward to go back to. This is one place that no veggie should miss!

The Veggie Place for Meat Eaters

Yeah, that probably didn't make sense. My neighbor is a white dude from the UK and when he said "Hey dude, you gotta check out that little italy joint, no meat though" I knew something was up.

The nacho's are an interesting take on the usual Mexican dish, the pasta bar with alfredo hits close to home, and those fried onion things with the chat masala (what are they called??) were delicious. My mom is a big time veggie who despite our best efforts, always ends up cooking her Indian leftovers when we come home after a night of eating out. I'm sure that won't be the case here.

my kiddo loved it too!

from http://nibblesandgobbles.blogspot.com

Little Italy- we first visited the Indira nagar branch almost 4 years back and became instant fans of food and service. Did not go back frequently because new restaurant keep opening in Bangalore and foodies like us try to sample all! Anyways, we decided to give the new branch at Koramangala a visit this weekend with our toddler. The place was a hit right from the first impression. It is a fine dining restaurant but did not have the odd feel that makes everyone whisper for any conversation. The place is very child friendly with the staff going out of the ways to keep our 14 month old entertained and not to forget the plastic plate with some grapes they offered as complimentary toddler food. We were very very hungry which explains the huge order comprising of Mexican delite (mashed potatoes with bean sauce), nachos with cheese sauce, onion rings (crisp yet tender!), Gnocco and pesto pizza. The service was quick and the food was toooooo good! I especially liked the Gnocco which was listed as their specialty in the menu. It was a homemade pasta preparation with the spinach and cheese filling that just melted in the mouth! The meal for two along with mock tails costed us Rs. 1200. Finally, a great place for weekend lunch with kids!

Nice Place, Amazing food.

I went here with my wife for the first time. I did not expect anything great, but was surprised with the clean, and soothing ambiance. Staff was courteous. We ordered garlic bread to start with and then went on the order a Pizza for main course and Tiramisu for desert.
The Food was really great. I have never had a Veg Pizza so good.

This place is good. Ok.. do not go expecting a high class Italian restaurant where everything flows in harmony. The servers were at times little nervous and not vocal enough.
Nevertheless, I would recommend this place for its food.

Very NICE experience

I visited this restaurant on the 9th of April which was my girlfriend's birthday. I called them before going there and spoke to one nice fellow whose name I cannot remember. I told them that it is my girlfriend's birthday and asked them what can they do. He said, he can give a complimentary cake from their side. That was good. We reached there, the valet was very courteous, the welcome was nice. We were asked to pick a table for ourselves. She picked the table near the bar.
The place is very nicely done. Nothing is overdone right from the color combination to the decoration to the table arrangements to the hanging lamps from the ceiling. Everything fell in place.

We had a choice whether to order from the la carte or take the buffet. We chose the buffet. The appetisers were served on the table and for the main course we had to fetch ourselves, which was not bad. The appetisers were great. For the main course I had pastas and she took the pizza. We were all done when I signalled one of the waiters for the cake.

The cake was very cute and they wrote exactly what I had asked them to. They put the birthday song and almost everyone in the restaurant sang for her. It was a really nice experience in this place.

However, the only eyesore were the two tables which were very very near the restroom doors. I even mentioned that on the feedback form which they gave us to write.

I would love to come back some day. Lets see.
All in all, Thank you Little Italy for a lovely day on the 9th of April. By the way you guys had taken some snaps. Would appreciate if you could send them to my ID munxcat@gmail.com. :-) he he just kidding.

best veggie italian

a nice relaxing place with good service nd a nice outdoor seating space.. food is just absolutely delicious though a little on the expensive side.. da lasagne is absolutely delicious (though not authentic according to some ppl). all in all, a delight for veggies nd non-veggies (wanting a break from the usual meaty stuff) equally. chocolate bomb is a must try.

The best of Italy

Little Italy is a charming, not-so-little place on 100 feet road(They also have a branch in Koramangala that I haven't visited). The USP being it's wide array of choices for authentic veg. Italian food, the ambience and service however don't take a backseat. It's a perfect dining place for most occasions. Must try- Pale Di Potato(fried potato skins served with Mayo,
Pizza Alla Vodka(also their other thin crust pizzas),
Crochette Spinaci E Ricotta,
and any Pasta.
However, I've had better Lasagnes at other places.

Delicious food

We have been to Little Italy several times, especially the one in Indiranagar. We have almost always been very satisfied with the food. One of the nicest things about the place is that it offers whole wheat pasta options and whole wheat pizza bases! Everything feels quite healthy.

Our only complaint is that even though the place is completely vegetarian (another point of attraction for us) there is extremely little choice for vegans. We have to ask for cheese to be removed from the usual dish most of the time, and that is never as nice as a dish planned cheese-less and milk-less from the very beginning. I wish they had a couple of options at least that did not have any milk products.

Good Food Excellent Service

Yesterday we went to Little Italy and it was really great experience. We used to regularly visit Little Italy in Indiranagar for the yummy italian food though it is far from home. But after yesterday's visit to Kormangala Little Italy, we've decided to make this our regular hang out place. The food was as good as Indiranagar (may be slightly mbetter) but their service is amazing. We ordered 3 items and in 10-15 min they served all the dishes perfectly cooked and hot.The staff made sure that they are serving us as and when required. They were also keeping tab if we want to order something more. It was really satisfying dinner not only from food perspective but the whole ambience and service made us really relax and we enjoyed our dinner very much.Hats off to the Little Italy, Kormangala team.

Excellent as always

As someone from Bombay, LI has been my fav restaurant for many years ever since the first restaurant opened on Juhu Tara Road. We were regulars @ LI Indiranagar. We dined @ LI Koramangala or the first time last evening & had a wonderful experience. The food & décor are exceptional & so is the service. This is my favorite restaurant chain in BLR & will continue to be so while these high standards are maintained.
Please thank your manager Mr. Patil on our behalf for the exceptional service we received yesterday. We were always looked after very well by him & his team @ the Indiranagar branch. Last evening was no different.
Dining here is always a very pleasurable experience & I hope you maintain these very high standards.

The best place to eat out

From a person who hated Italian, LI - (the one at whitefield and now this one)has made me a devout fan of Italian food.

My personal favorites here which i must have recommended to atleast 10 ppl so far (and they swear by it too) - Alla Firittiana, Pasta Barbaresca, Sorano Pizza, Nachos with refried beans, Corn balls, Spinaci salsa and the most heavenly Chocolate Bomb.

Go Bangalore and give it a try.

A special mention to the ambience and to the staff.

Little Italy

We all went for my husband's bday to this place called Little Italy, a small restaurant hidden away in one of the streets of Koramangala. Had we not just wandered around looking for a nice place to catch a bite, we would have never known of this place.

Well, the ambience was great with earthern pots placed on mantlepieces to decorate the place. they looked beautiful indeed, not to mention the terracota pieces with yellow light glimmering through them.

We had made reservations in advance, so were made to head straight to our table. The waiter was kind of enough to help us with the starters through to the make course, since the menu and the names on it sounded very very "foreign" to us!!

I have to say, the waiter did a good job! We all loved the starters, there were mouth watering mushrooms served with buttered garlic bread, and then small bread rolls with cheese on them. That was for the starters.

We ordered a good variety of dishes for the main course since we were five of us and decided to order 5 different dishes and dig into each other's plates!So there was pizza, pasta, lasagne, spaghetti and garlic bread. and all of it was just yummmmmm!!

We all ate to our heart's content, as the food was really really good, and we enjoyed every bit of the food that we popped into our mouth.

All in all, it was a great experience and we had a lovely evening.

Simply superb

I cant remember how i stumbled upon this awesome restaurant but this has become my most favourite place in bangalore for italian food.

The ambience and the service is far better than most other restaurants. The staff is well groomed, properly trained and very courteous.

The food......the food is the most delicious italian food i've ever had. After eating the pizza's in this place, one would not even look at most other big names in the pizza industry. Not that they are not good. But they have not been able to match Little Italy's variety, taste and quality. I have not been able to drag myself in any other pizza place after visiting Little Italy.

Not only the pizzas but the pastas, salads, lasagnas, cannelloni and anything else you pick from the menu makes your mouth water like anything.

The best part is that its a pure vegetarian restaurant and the whole place is very hygienic and well maintained.

All those who havent been here should definitely go there once. Coz once is gonna be enough, the next time you wont have to go, you will automatically get drawn there.

My best compliments to the whole management including the kitchen team and the hospitality team there. You guys are doing a wonderful job. Good luck and keep it up.

Great experience

We recently celebrated our son's 5th birthday party here. We reserved the venue from 4.00-7.00 in the evening. Our experience was definitely worthy of a 5 star review. Let me list the reasons why:
1) The owners were ALWAYS available for pre-party help/ suggestions. They also had a link up with party event co-ordinators so we were able to have a magic show/ tattoo artist without any hassles.
2) When we arrived at the restaurant, they had already begun set-up and the entire staff was EXTREMELY helpful. Anything that I needed was done in a matter of minutes, with a smile on their face.
3) The food was great, piping hot as I requested and served at the time I wanted.
4) As if this weren't enough in itself, the staff also took photographs for us and mailed them to me promptly. :-)

I cannot say enough good things about the place and the staff and the warm and kind owners. :-)
I am looking forward to them inaugurating their banquet hall. I have a feeling this is going to be our regular venue for our kids birthday parties. :-)

Best Italian food in the city

We went to Little Italy with some reservations the first time in November and were pleasantly surprised at the quality and variety of food offered to us. We were also delighted to eat in a pure vegetarian restaurant offering Italian food items, as we are vegetarian. We didn't have to worry about meat sauces & pieces getting mixed up with veg. food.

We ate one of the tastiest Italian pizzas and the appetizers were also excellent (esp. Special Bean Tacos and Spinach Dip). The mashed potatoes was so tasty and reminded us of Don Pablos in the US. We wish Bean Burritos were made available too.

We went again this month with an American guest and celebrated a mini--birthday party with family friends and we all had a wonderful time again with the nice hospitality extended to us. The staff were very friendly and it is no exaggeration. Hats off to the owners!

Rocking..!

Upon a friend's suggestion, we reached there on sunday night for dinner. Being a hard core non veggie, i wasnt too eager, but thought why not give it a try. We had not done a reservation not expecting the place to be full on sunday night. Not only was the place full to the core but also there was some waiting. The owners were very apologetic & promised us a seating at the earliest. Thankfully, we got a place in 15 minutes.

The menu seemed pretty exhaustive. We ordered for nachoes with cheese & funghi trapanese (hope i got the name right) for starters. Both were very good. The kids loved the nachoes while we feasted on the juicy roasted mushrooms which was served with garlic bread. Then we went in for a pizza with onion, capsicum, mushrooms, paneer etc. It was a thin crust pizza & was done in a wood fire & tasted amazing. Since I wanted to try something spicy, we were then advised to go in for the pasta named Masala Mafia (Pretty cool name!!). Pasta was also awesome..One of the best I have ever eaten..! The meal was ended by a chocolate bomb....which was molten chocolate in a crusted cover and it was delicious.

Service was excellent. In fact the owners came around to check if everything was ok & also sent some complimentary french fries for the kids when the kids remarked that they liked french fries. Somewhere in between a Birthday Song started & we realized there was a table with a birthday girl in the outdoor area. Everybody in the restaurant joined in singing & wishing Happy Birthday. Very Nice....

Overall the place ROCKED...and I am definitely going back again, For once, I didnt mind NOT having a CHICKEN on my plate...!

Unforgettable Experience

I have been a regular at Koramangala branch since it opened. Last Sunday I took my parents with me for Lunch and it also happened to be my Dad's birthday. We had a bit of a wait as there was a party also being hosted, but not too long. We got to sit in the outside area which was pleasant and had a nice view of the pizza oven which happens to be a wood burning oven! Our food was excellent as always. One of the owners stopped by to see if we were enjoying ourself and in the conversation I mentioned that it was my Dad's birthday. He wished my Dad and after that went away towards the kitchen. After the meal to our surprise one of the server brought out a piece of cake with a candle for my Dad with Happy Birthday playing on the sound system. Smile on my Dad's face was worth seeing! It was unforgettable. Thank you for the experience. I wish there was an option to give more than 5 stars for the review!

they "were" SOOO much better!

Been a customer at Little Italy from a loong loong time ago when they were only at Indiranagar. If i remember right they even won some award for authentic italian food etc... The koramangala branch is a god send given the proximity now, but
1. do not sprinkly 'chat masala' on anything that is not a 'chat section' of the menu
2. the bar needs to have all drinks that are on the drinks menu :)

Those apart, i think food is still quite good, and the ambience great. The kora branch in particular is tucked away from the traffic, so sitting outside does not mean more noise.

Only if you are a vegetarian

I think the food is acceptable only if you are a vegetarian and are starved for options. My veggie friends all love the place however me and my nv gang never found it worth the drive. Since it isn't even authentic for that matter.

That "jain on request" is by definition the weirdest cross cultural fad that there was.

This place continues to amaze me

This place continues to amaze me. My third visit here and it keeps getting better every time. This time I was visiting with a couple of colleagues at work. We were told they had a weekday buffet, but we had already decided to go a-la-carte, and agreed that we would try the buffet on our next visit.
We ordered the Funghi Trifolati and Special Crostini for starters. The Funghi Trifolati was awesome and much better than what I have had in some of the other Italian restaurants around. For the main course we tried the Pasta Del Barone and the Gnocco (again on a previous recommendation, and we were not disappointed) and ended with some awesome mango cheese cake for dessert. This place really has a very exhaustive menu and its difficult to really try out everything though some of the dishes are really hard to understand. The service staff does do a good job though to make one understand their menu. I just love this place and hope the folks keep up with the good work.

Italian heaven in the concrete jungle

Word of mouth was what brought me to Little Italy and the word was true every bit. Its located in a hidden road near the famous Forum Mall in Koramangala, but i didn't have much trouble finding it as everyone i asked around knew where it was.

When i entered the place the ambiance was so calm and soothing. I would consider it the place to de-stress with some great food. The hospitality of the management was also a major factor in making us feel at "home". The way how the top management came forward and mingled with us and enquired about everything was also very nice to see and not something you would expect at other restaurants.

Coming to the food, the menu took us quite a long time to go through, understand and order because the choices are simply too much to handle. In fact i hadn't even heard about or tasted more than half of the items, although being a dedicated Italian lover. The names do get you laughing but thanks to the helpful nature of the management, we knew what we wanted to order. The Fungi Trapanese(Mushroom) starter was to die for, the Wood Burn pizzas were like something you would expect in heaven and i would gladly join the Italians in making their Pasta my staple food.

Overall i consider Little Italy and their food as the best Italian i have experienced so far, and i would love to visit them time and again and taste everything in the menu at least once.

The prices were something you wouldn't mind shelling out after they memorize you with their food, and i would consider it perfect for what you get in return.

One more Good option for Italian Food Lovers

Went to this place to attend a party thrown by a good friend. This was last sunday aft. Didnt know this place existed and that too so close to Forum. Me and wife loved the rusty and yet classy feel of the place. We were seated outdoors in the Al fresco seating, with a nice view of their wood fire pizza oven. they also have an indoor airconditioned seating. The party host had taken care to ensure a full course meal for the guests and the starters if I remember correctly had mexican as well as italian options thrown in. The highlight of the party was of course the service and the hospitality of the service staff. The thin crust pizzas they serve here are just right and come very close to what I have eaten in Italy. The pasta with combination of Fusilli and Penne in mixed sauce was my favourite, though my wife went for the Spaghetti in tomato sauce. I would definitely want to go back and try some of the other items in their exhaustive menu esp their crostini and crespelles. And ofcourse the tempting cheese cakes and chocolate bomb in the dessert menu. Overall - A must visit place

all time fave for italian

i have been a huuuge fan of this place - in hyd and bangalore. it has NEVER disappointed me.
service, food taste, quality, timeliness, variety - they never seem to fail.

its slightly on the pricier side - but we can live with it.

Strongly recommended: Gnoccho - flat pasta rolled with a stuffing of cheese and spinach and a generous helping of tomato based sauce over it. it doesnt sound appealing, and doesnt look like it going fill you up - but trust me you will be wrong on bth fronts.

also, their sunday brunch - awesome spread, go early and on an empty stomach - and you can do the brunch some justice. steep price - so chk if you are ok with tht.

thanks little italy for being so consistently great!

PS: this is an ONLY VEG place. they serve alcohol though. another reason why i like it. you can take your ajji tata also there - if they enjoy italian ofcourse :)

Great Ambience, Great Food

I've been to quite a few Little Italy, and the new Little Italy in Koramangala tops the list in Ambience and decor. I saw the review in TOI and decided to try it out over the weekend. There was a bit of a wait so make a reservation before you go.

The food is quite good. We had a thin crust pizza and pasta in tomato sauce (i think arrabiata?). Both of them were excellent. One of the best pizza I have had in Bangalore. Don't even try to compare to the thick ones at other pizza places. The veggies are all flavoured differently and tastes fabulous. Esp the sun dried tomatoes & its all vegetarian! Valet option was put to use so no bother of parking. Definitely a must try. Can't wait to go back.

Excellent find in Koramangala

I stumbled on this place after seeing the sign on Hosur Road near Forum and decided to try out last Sunday. The ambience of the place is definitely top-notch with option to sit indoor in AC or outdoor. We decided to sit outside as the weather was quite nice and we wanted to view the live pizza counter as we sat and chatted away. We tried the thin crust Fantasia pizza and it was perfect. My wife had the pasta barbaresca and it was also very nice. For dessert we had the chocolate bomb and it was a perfect end to a fantastic meal. For the 2 of us with drinks the total was about 1000 which is reasonable for an awesome place and great food. A definite recommend.

Excellent Catering Service

Recently had an event for 40 plate catering in the Rs 500/plate category
Lil Italy came ahead of time, set up the food table and live counters for pasta and pizza. Service during the evening with starters was exceptional. Dinner itself was praiseworthy. And, post the event, clean up was quick and without fuss. My experience was so good that I would not hesitate to use them again and again.

A Bright Spot in Koramangala

We've been long term fans of the LI in Indiranagar for some time, but it's a real pain to make the trek all the way over there. Consequently, we only ever went if we were in the area already.

Thankfully, the new branch in KOR is only 5 minutes away from home.

Location:
You'd have to know it's there to get there. Hidden a street away from the Forum, as long as you get directions you'll be fine.

Ambiance:
Head and shoulders above the branch in Indiranagar. Where the other one looks like it was (obviously) cobbled together from various rooms (each with their own neurotic designer), this one is a classy one-piece affair.

Gone are the ridiculously cheeky paper placemats with silly emotional quotes about vegetarianism, in are classy place settings. Gone are the steak knives placed at ever seat in the Indiranagar location (can someone please explain that?), in are intelligent silverware choices (never thought I'd write that in a review!).

The outdoors pavilion is nice and cool, with a good (kid pleasing) view of the pizza oven.

The bar area is small (toss it for more seating!) and we're taking bets on how long it'll take before that leaning shelf dumps it's several lakhs worth of liqour on the poor barman.

Food:
As always, it's great. Of course, there's duds and off nights, but few and far between. I love the Nonna Adelina, the kids love all the pizzas, the brushchetta beats any in town.

Mexican?
Nada. Call it an Italian joint and be done with it. I grew up in Arizona, and there's not a single Mexican thing on the menu. Okay, I recant - there ARE Mexican entrees on the menu, but not in the kitchen.

Service:
A tad slow, and they still 'auction' the food off, which makes me crazy, but it's worth the wait.

Overall:
Go for it. Some very pleasing stuff. I love taking my 1st world friends to a 'vegetarian' Italian spot and seeing them be pleasantly surprised.

As always, eat well, and for cooking tips, don't miss: www.pasta-meshugana.com

Great if you order the right dishes

Great place for vegetarians - probably the only veg italian joint in the world. the pizzas are very good - very thin and baked with great quality cheese and veggies. The pastas with marinara/tomato sauces are good - avoid the pesto and the cheese sauces. the Bruschetta - though a little different from the original is excellent. Portions are large - so order lesser than you think you can eat. Desserts/drinks are avoidable.

good place great food

happened to stumble upon the little italy restaurant in koramangala (opp forum, behind SKC). i have eaten at little italy indiranagar and enjoyed the food in the past. fortunately the food at the koramangala place is as good, if not better than what i remember it to be at indiranagar.

the place has been done up well and the ambience is great. service is excellent and of course the food is fantastic. A full meal for 3 with beer thrown in was about 1400 which is quite OK.

my favourite picks - funghi trifolati (mushroom), pasta barbaresca topped up with cholocate bomb (chocolate lovers will drool over it)

since it's in a lane there is ample parking available.

Surprise Find - Little Italy near Forum Mall

It was by pure accident that we stumbled upon this lovely Italian place called Little Italy, which has recently opened next to Swadeshi store behind SKC mall, which is diagonally opposite Forum on the dairy circle road. The ambience is subtle yet lovely and they have an alfresco seating for those who prefer the outdoors as well as an indoor air-conditioned hall. They serve a wide variety of thin crust Italian Pizzas, pastas, lasagne and Mexican fare. We ordered nachos topped with cheese for starters; a combo pizza and pasta with a mix of tomato and cheese sauce (don?t remember the name). The food was awesome. Though I am a non-vegetarian, I really enjoyed the vegetarian food here. The bar is well stocked with a wide range of wines and cocktails. We ordered a chocolate bomb with ice-cream for dessert, and this was excellent. My kid, an avid chocolate lover just freaked over it. The service was quite personalized and it was a pleasant surprise to see the owners of the place personally ensuring that the guests were comfortable and well taken care of. A meal for two with starters, main course, dessert and drinks cost us 1200, which was quite reasonable. The one suggestion that I have is that it would help first-timers locate this place easily with some large visible signboards giving directions to this place, especially on the Hosur main road near Forum. Overall, definite thumbs up for this place and highly recommended to Italian and Mexican food lovers.

Buon Appetito

Impulsive decision is the word!! I’ve heard so much about Little Italy in Indiranagar but never made it there. The happy news of their new branch in Koramangala excited a few of us and we dint longer to dine in there. Called them up to ask for directions and we were told it’s in the road behind the SKC mall near Forum.

With the right directions, we were there by 8:15PM. In the portico they’ve placed a few tables. Though initially we had two minds and were discussing on where to sit, a courteous waiter advised us not to sit outside as we could be disturbed by the mosquitoes. That’s it and we zeroed in on the indoors and moved into the A/C hall. The interior was decorated with subtle colors yet made beautiful. A few show pieces were neatly arranged on the spaces between the walls.

The waiters handed over the menu cards and as usual the confusion started on what to pick. Being a pure veg Italian Restaurant, they have such an extensive menu card. From soups, salads and starters to the very own Indianised Jain Pizzas to satiate palate of the people from different culture. The first course consisted of Variety of Pastas – Tagliatelle, Spaghetti, Penne, Fusilli, Gnocchi, Ravioli Fettuchine. The second course consisted of too many things varying from pasta to rice to Mexican specialities.

We tried the “Zuppa Di Asparagus” which was brilliant. After letting the soup settle within ourselves, we ordered “Insalata Di Avocado” which ofcourse consisted of Avocado, Mozzarella, Fresh Tomatoes, Basil, Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar. One of my friends loved it so much, she everyday talks to me about it and still wants to eat it. Pizzas are available with thin crust and thick crust. We had the thin crust pizza with some toppings of our own and some suggested by the waiter. Unbelievable and totally amazing! How can our meal be complete without Pasta? Especially in a Italian Restaurant? We ordered the Pasta Barberesca which was a combination of cheese and tomato sauce with Brocolli, Tomatoes, Garlic, Parsley, Sundried tomatoes, Temphe and Chilly Pepper. I and my friends hardly spoke after this was served. We so deeply got engrossed into relishing the food, we dint raise our head up until it was the time for the second serving of the pasta.

Though we were so full, as always we have the extra space for the desserts and it was like a mandate to order for the same. Knowing the unavailability of the Choco-Walnut Fudge with Vanilla Icecream, we ordered for the ultimate and all time favorite Tiramisu. This was like a home-made Italian classic sponge cake soaked in rum and coffee with vanilla cream custard, sprinkled with chocolate powder and served cold. It was a Divine Sin!! The rum must have had some extra effect. My friend did not want to leave it for longer and swallowed it within no time along with me.

After a heavy and a sumptuous meal, we had to drag ourselves out of that place. After a long time, I enjoyed the Italian food so much with a great company of my friends of course!! The total damage for the 3 of us was around Rs.1400/-

I highly recommend this place for the pure vegetarians who relish the Italian Food!
