Little Italy offers down-to-earth Italian food suited to the Indian palate. The menu includes a variety of antipasti or starters, soups, salads, pastas and pizzas. There is also a small Tex-Mex selection and some nice desserts. The Insalata Dei Monte Iblei (a salad of green beans, sun-dried tomatoes, spring onions and basil with a dressing of extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar) is extremely tasty but a bit sloppy to look at. The Cheese Nachos are scrumptious - the gooey, melted yellow cheese is just perfect. Some excellent Italian pizzas here include Freestate (with a mixture of cheeses and olives), Mediterranean (with olives, artichokes and oregano) and Sicilia (with sun-dried tomatoes, mushrooms and garlic marinated in chilli oil). It also does outstanding Mashed Potatoes with roasted garlic and cheese - not for weight watchers but great for hungry kids. The Panna Cotta, a rich cream set with gelatine and flavoured with vanilla, is awesome. A reasonable selection of Italian and Indian wines is also there. Only missing are the cheeky Italian waiters and the "mama mia" family charm

The food is consistently delicious. The prices are slightly on the higher side but it's completely worth every rupee spent. The quantity of food is just right and the service is prompt. The place has a pleasant decor and it's quite cozy. But it is very difficult to find seats, especially in the weekends. So, reserve in advance. And yes, when you're there, don't miss the wine.
