Italian subtleties are created everyday by the side of Dhakuria bridge, under the passionate supervision of Mr. Suman Mukherjee in `Italia in Cucina'. Even after hearing the mouth watering appreciations of many genuine food-lover friends, Italia in Cucina was still able to surprise us with the exquisitely delicate taste of authentic Italian food.
Our evening started with tomato soup and garlic bread followed by mushroom risotto with imported porcini, steamed fish and the pretty looking dessert- Pana Cotta. It will be unfair not to tell you about the complimentary bread basket accompanied with Balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil that was served as an appetizer to lead us to the world of gastronomical luxury. The food stole our heart as it brought out the richness and delicacy of the original Italian ingredients in all the lethal combinations that were served. Everything, starting from the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, herbs and even the tomatoes that go into the tomato soup are imported. The kitchen is run under the supervision of Italian chefs.
The menu had much more to offer and it is not difficult to get a little spoilt by choice, but the owner (you can call him the host!) is always eager to show you a happy way to a blissfully filled up tummy !
Initially the price might seem a little steep but the portions will prove you wrong.
The place is mildly decorated with a very European sober, clean look and subdued lighting, reminding us of our leisurely spent long evenings in Italy.
To summarize what really makes it stand out is good research, impeccable execution and a craving for authenticity. We left the place with a deep sense of happiness and appreciation with a promise to come back again and again.
