My friend Saral said , let's go to Pizzeria this evening , as she wanted to eat only vegetarian food that evening , due to the Jain Parva going on in their house . And it was also nearer for us to go there .
i have eaten authentic Italian food in Atlanta , U.S. and visit Pizza Hut , Domino's , some times . Also a subscriber to the newsletter of about.com for Italian cuisine , i studied the much -hyped , elaborate menu card of this more -show-less-stuff restaurant , and on knowing that they serve Rajma in their mexican pizza , settled for Exotic . i also ordered for garlic bread , to start with .
To our utter dismay , the garlic bread was stiff , not baked properly , with hardly any trace of butter . we helplessly munched on those miserable-looking pieces , and waited for the pizza to arrive .
i had asked for an extra topping of olives , too .
This fare was worst than the bread , soggy in the middle , tasteless , with no tomato sauce as described , just a dash of some sparse capsicum , mushrooms missing , and a side crust so hard , one can not chew off a bite easily !
All those phony candlelights , and expensive uniforms of the waiters , became all the more irritating !
We come here for some good food , damn it , after paying exorbitantly , for a vegetarian pizza , while one can get chicken as a topping , with a lesser price .
The height of it was , when one of them said he will bring a small pizza as complimentary , and kept us waiting , by just disappearing from the scene !
We quietly paid the bill of four hundred and above , left the place disgusted , and i have vouched never to get misled by the so-called ambience , which was actually a rowdy group of youth smoking cigarrettes next to us , talking loudly , and misbehaving , to whom , the waiters seemed to be more obliging , than to us !
One can always get authentic Italian pizzas and cuisine , in many good restaurants in Koregaon Park area of Pune . This one is surely avoidable , which strips you of a lot of cash , in exchange to some sprinkling of veggies , and hard-crusted pizzas , which are a disgrace to it's name !
