Shudh shakahari (pure vegetarian) Italian food is the USP at Little Italy, with a touch of Lebanon (Paneer Shawarma, falafel, hummus, etc.) and Mexican (Tortillas and Quesadillas) thrown in to liven things up! The cheery Juhu branch with its black wrought-iron grills, mosaic-tiled floor and well-lit glass ceiling is warm and inviting. The Chef's Home-made Pasta (al dente Ravioli, Pasta with Gorgonzola Cheese and Gnocchi) is superb. Many varieties of thin-crust pizzas (Spicy Tabasco Pizza all the way!) are available. Recommended dishes: Fungi Trifolati, Crostionis, Minestrone Soup, Creme a Di Fungi, Chocolate Bomb and the Sizzling Brownie. Generous portions of Enchiladas and Nachos appeal to the Indian palate. As does the robustly spiced Italian fare. The Andheri branch has a twin-level, irregularly shaped space but is equally engaging. The Charni Road branch is spread across three levels, with each one serving a different cuisine (Indian on the ground floor, Thai and Chinese on the second and Italian Mexican on the third). A banquet hall for 65-70 people is available for those who looking for it. This branch alone offers Lunch Buffets Mon–Fri: Rs.425 plus taxes, Rs.325 for kids under 10; Sat-Sun: Rs.499+taxes and Rs.350 for kids under 10.

Come here for the coffee and the buzz. "A lot can happen over coffee" is the tagline at these gleaming white-floored cafes throbbing with loud music, with oversized movie posters plastered on the walls and a mix of bright colourful sofas as well as relaxed cane furniture all around. Sandwiches, snacks and coffee for the young and young at heart. When you visit, stick to the coffee please - it's grown on 6,000 acres and each location serves an array of international coffees (Aztec, Ethiopian and more) in hot (Espresso, Irish Coffee and more) and cold (Iced Eskimo, Kappi Nirvana to name a couple) options. Rich and frothy Devil's Own and Caffe Frappe are popular. Pastries are strictly average and food (parathas, idlis, dosas and biryanis at some outlets along with the usual pastas, sandwiches, burgers in non-veg and veg options at all outlets) inconsistent - undercooked pasta and dry sandwiches. Quality has taken a bit of a hit as the number of cafes keeps mushrooming (100 and counting). But there's a touch of thoughtfulness in the menu - Vegan Shakes (creamy cold coffee on ice without milk), eggless pastries, Jain-friendly fare and even a couple of Vegan options. Hardcore CCD fans will delight in the array of goodies on the glass-shelves - everything from a tin of coffee powder (try Arabica) and cookies (Choco-Chip or Oatmeal 'n' Honey) to mugs and Espresso Makers. Wherever you are in the city, there's always a CCD near you.
