Most diners come to this popular Italian restaurant in Palladium Mall with baggage—a shopping bag or two —and leave feeling heavier than before. With a new specials menu, there is now more to pick from. We started off with the non-vegetarian assorted crostini platter, which saw four pieces of crusty homemade bread topped with creamy chicken, parma ham, Sicilian prawns and chorizo. Our only grouse was that the generous serving of cheese often resulted in the meat’s flavour being lost.
In the mains, don’t miss the chicken stuffed with mozzarella and spinach served with red wine sauce and the pumpkin ravioli with sage sauce. However, the thick texture of the rice used in the risotto with seasonal vegetables didn’t go down well with us. Seafood lovers can go for the red snapper in which the mild white sauce compliments the fish well. At Level 3, Palladium, High Street Phoenix, Lower Parel Tel 40237711/12 Cost for two Rs 2, 500
