Description: Tucked away in the by-lanes near the Forum Mall, Koramangala is "Little Italy", the well-known fine dine Italian and Mexican speciality restaurant which has just completed four years and is now a landmark destination for all food lovers.Little Italy, Koramangala has a pleasant and cosy ambience overlooking natural greenery. The alfresco seating has few tables laid out under a skylight and lined with bamboo plants. White walls offset the deep brown furniture in the inside area, giving the restaurant a rather elegant and classy look. The evening mood is romantic with lantern bulb lighting accentuated by the unique interior setup. The well-stocked bar set in one of the corners offers imported/Indian liquor, wines & medley of cock-tails and mock-tails. The first floor is contemporary and plays host to get-togethers, candle-light dinners, kitty parties, birthday parties, Dance/DJ parties, cricket/football match projections on large screen. This exquisite place delivers thin crust pizzas baked in an open-view wood fire oven. Amongst the wide variety of pizzas ranging from the ever green "Margherita" to the extensively topped "Pizza Mellino", there exist some signature options like the "Calzone Al Forno" - a closed pizza. Going beyond the Pizzas are the Pastas... Based on Tomato, Cheese and Pesto sauces, and their intertwining combinations, pastas like "Pasta Barbaresca", “Pasta Del Barone”, “Masala Mafia” have become all time favourites.As pre-cursors, there are Zuppe(soups), Insalata(salads) and Anti-Pasti(starters). "Insalata Mista" has many fans, as have the Assorted platters, Bruschettas and Mexican starters - "Nachos with Cheese" and "Cheese corn balls". The melting “Cheese Fondue” is truly out of this world. The Lasagne's and Risotto's score well among the specialities. The tail end is held up by the excruciatingly mouth watering "Chocolate Bomb" - a melody of ice cream with overflowing chocolate. The cheesecakes, pancakes and dessert pizzas are a sinful delight for the sweet-toothed. The “Weekday Lunch Buffet” and “Sunday Brunch” with its sumptuous spread of Italian, Mexican, Mongolian and Lebanese fare is already a hit.In short, here’s a place well worth a visit and repeat visits...
