Went to the pasta bar Veneto in T Nagar, on Sunday. Nice and peppy music, very European ambience. And we got the table in a few minutes. Polite Man in a black tee gave us the cards.
I liked the menu. It is quite extensive with a lot of trivia on Italy. We ordered 2 fresh lime soda and 2 pepsi, some Italian wings, and the Tomato bruschetta.
The wings were crisp, but very low on spice. The dip was amazing and gave the necessary lift to the chicken. The Bruschetta was nice, and I liked the flavors. Lot of basil and I think some sort of wine vinegar was also used. The garlic could have been chopped better as some pieces were a tad too big.
We then ordered a lasagna chicken, a Stuffed chicken grill, a Penne Pesto of sun dried tomatoes with some extra chicken, and a baked vegetable for the grass eater in the group.
Well, we weren't disappointed. The lasagna was right; not too cheesy not too tomatoey. And with loads of mince. The stuffed chicken was topped by a nicely spiced sauce.the stuffing of cheese and mince was oozing out and made for a great combination. The chicken was a bit overcooked, I felt, but my friend dug in with gusto and felt it was great. the penne pesto was fantabulous. Best pasta I have had and I have eaten in some of the best restaurants and trattorias & Restaurants in Europe. Kudos, pasta bar!
The desserts were nice, not exceptional, except for the Mud Pie, which melted in our mouths.
service was good. Attentive, but not overpowering, and for a change I went to a clean toilet in a crowded eatery.
