Introduction:

Navi Mumbai now has it's own Italian restaurant, just when Little Italy from Juhu extended their branch to Vashi.
Located on the first floor of Platinum Techno Park (above Mahesh Lunch Home) is a spacious & lavish premise occupied by the restaurant. Spacious, as much as it can accommodate almost 60 guests at once.

Generally the restaurant hosts buffet lunch during weekdays & weekends. But to add more excitement to the menu, they have come up with a Venetian Food Festival bringing all the authentic tastes of Venice to our city. The buffet spread is worth 599 INR plus taxes. One can chose from their impressive variety of Pizzas and get your own Pasta made from the live pasta counter as well.

The Venetian Food Festival has started since 7th September and ends on the 25th September, 2016.
Timing- 12 noon to 11:45 p.m.


Few highlights of the best dishes from the Buffet-

Zuppa Di Ravioli
Zuppa Di Ravioli Soup: Ravioli stuffed with Cottage cheese and walnuts served in a Pumpkin Broth tasted pretty delicious. The warm and aromatic flavors of the broth were indeed satisfying to our tastebuds.

Aglio Olio
Aglio Olio: This is one of their signature pastas made with fresh bell peppers, seasoning, drizzled with Olive oil and contains no cheese at all. A very good option for the health conscious ones!

Pasta in Cream Sauce
Pasta in Cream Sauce: We customised this pasta at the live pasta counter with Farfalle pasta with cream cheese sauce as the base. The fresh vegetables consisted of babycorns, olives, broccoli, mushroom, bell peppers and jalapenos.

Pizza Montello
Pizza Montello: Fresh tomato sauce on the base topped with large slices of roasted Mushrooms, onions, bell peppers and Mozzarella. We absolutely loved the Pizza as it was creamy and filled with such delicious toppings.

Nachos with Cheese
Nachos with Cheese: These are your regular Nachos, but made with homemade Tortilla chips loaded with bell peppers and cream cheese. Simple, yet delicious!

Venetian Kiwi Roll
Venetian Kiwi Roll for dessert: This Kiwi Roll was fluffy, soft and gooey; containing rich flavors and the sweetness was balanced aptly.

Bruschetta Al Cacio

While we loved every bit of the above mentioned dishes, we also disliked a few namely- the Bruschetta Al Cacio for being too sweet and dry, Stuffed Mushroom Ricotta since it was majorly overcooked, and Cauliflower Verde because of it's slightly bland taste.

Haven said that, we also have high hopes from the restaurant's team to improvise on the dishes mentioned above; and we would love to try them again after they've been revised.

Strawberry Mojito

The service and staff cooperation was excellent and that made the restaurant's overall impression noteworthy.
All in all, we had a good time at Little Italy and also enjoyed the Venetian Food Festival.

Therefore, the overall verdict for Little Italy is 3.5/ 5.
