A very unlikely place to find great Italian food. But for sure a great place place for Pastas, Wood Owen Pizzas and Ravioli. Also a great ambience. I will forget that you are in Varanasi and the music and ambience can take you to anywhere...in Naples or Nice. A must for any one visiting Banaras. Given 4 stars just for the cleanliness, otherwise is a great place to eat. Great variety of food and great service.More

We ordered a Pizza and Ravioli Pasta. It was fabulous, Pizza dough was fresh, thin crust, had a good quality cheese and tasty toppings. Ravioli pasta was simply out of this world, the sauce was too good, it was heaven. Then on the recommendation of...the owner, we ordered apple pie, and it was damn delicious. What a taste !!! Simply put, I've haven't eaten such good Italian food in ages...made my day. Highly highly recommended !!!More

Restaurant with a terrace on the banks of the Ganges River. It is a nice place although the bathroom and the kitchen do not seem very hygienic... The kitchen is partially open air and with it there were many flies on the food. The pizza...we ate was good, although the kind of pizza we ordered was not brought to us. Other people at the next table had the same problem. They probably did not have that pizza but instead of saying "we don't have it", they just brought another one to the customers. Pizzas could be bigger also.More

I love Indian food. But after 14 days in country, I had a hankering for a good piece of pizza. This great little cafe at Assi Ghat overlooking the Ganges did not disappoint! I didn't expect much, but I was really wrong: the pizza was...fantastic. Great crust (not too think, not too thin, cooked just right); real pureed tomato sauce (not salad dressing or other spread), and delicious combination of toppings -- all cooked just right. They even had oregano and chili flakes on the side for an extra-authentic touch. This will not be the best pizza you've ever tasted, but it could well be the best pizza in Varanasi, and certainly better than Domino's! Enjoy!More

Situated on Assi ghat, this neat pizzeria spans 3 floors by the river Ganga. Beautiful view, neat decoration, nice brick oven pizzas and pasta are offered. Taste is great except if on makes the mistake of ordering extra cheese. It becomes too gooey. Their Honey,-Ginger-...Lemon drink is the most popular that soothes the throat. Their Vaatika special and mushroom-jalapeno were great.More

Great location, pizzas are prepared after order, vegetarian. But a must visit in Varanasi. It is better to visit in couple because they don't serve small pizzas.

One of the best scenic restaurant at the Ganges. With great view comes great Italian cuisine here. Though I'm a big fan of raviolis , spaghetti, pizza , nana-mint mocktail here , but their North Indian platter is equally good. They serves amazing dessert as...well to treat your taste buds. Must visit once in varanasi.More

Incredibly quite place at Assi Ghat beside Ganges. And having a meal with enchanting view of the Ganges. What a wonderful experience ot can be! Just imagine. I had this amazing experience last week as I visited them with bunch of my friends and had...an mind blowing experience. Talking about the ambience, the elevated green garden, having herbs like basil, spinach is home grown there. And the view, basically the night view is incredible. If I talk about the food, they have fabulous menu. Everything prepared here is soo authentic and freshly prepared. Personally I love their following dishes which I will recommend from my side. •Tomato Sauce Spaghetti- Full of flavours, tomato basil sauce, garlic and basil, making it refreshing.  • White Sauce Pasta- Silky smooth and aromatic sauce made from butter, milk and all purpose flour (maida), loaded with veggies,it’s a guaranteed way to delight your taste. buds.  • In pizza they have wide range to offer, by the way I tried- Vatika Special Pizza, Pizza Binaca, Olive Jalapeño Pizza, Capsicum Pizza. In all pizza one thing was comman, their perfect home-made thin crust pizza base and theie light and saucy tomato puree. Loaded with mozzarella cheese and varieties of veggies. I would definitely suggest I you wanna have well balanced Pizza having a taste of Italian touch, then you must try once. Also they prepare it in wood fire own, to give the authentic taste to their customers. • Pasta Ravioli- This was to die for. Very wholesome in taste. Loaded with tomato puree on top, and doller with fresh and home grown spinch inside, very light to comsume. • North Indian Thali- For lunch scences, they have this special thali for Indian visitors, consists of Bati, Chokha, Rice, Tadka Daal, Coriander-Mint Chutney, Salad and Fruit Custurd. Everything was delicious and flavorful. Sufficient for one hungry tummy. • Last but not the least, in dessert we had their- Banana Bread ( super fresh, soo soft) Brownie (taste divine when served with icecream. Grand Hit form the dessert section.) and the world wide famous APPLE PIE which is Revolutionary. Has the authentic American flavors. This is the added invective. Do visit this vantage place and enjoy the meal with beautiful view of river Ganges.More

Yesterday I visited here and had their Vatika Special Pizza it was thin crust pizza and tastes Amazing . They use clay oven to bake their pizza . 🍕 Basically this cafe serves Italian Cuisine . If you're searching for italian food then you must...visit here . ⤴️ They also made the ingredients required for preparing the food by their own selves. 💯 And all the food are chemical free , they don't use any flavours in drinks too .✅ Also must try their Apple pie it really tastes divine 🤤More

We went to Varanasi / Banaras for a week long trip during early March 2020 just before Coronavirus Pandemic erupt in India .  This was truly a memorable trip for us of 2020 ! After seeing the mesmerizing programme of “Subah – e – Banaras”...followed by morning sunrise 🌅 and boat rides ⛵ on river Ganga , we again reached to Assi Ghat ……. In the afternoon, we went for a nice lunch at Pizzaria Vaatika Café …… just at the bank of river Ganga . With the Assi Ghat in the backdrop, it is also one of the atmospheric dining experiences in Varanasi / Banaras . The view of Ganga River under the tree 🌳☘️🌱 shades of this café is truly an amazing experience . For our lunch we ordered Pizza 🍕🥘 along with Butterscotch Milk Shake 🥤……….. The Pizza 🍕 🥘 we ordered was having Onion, Garlic and Mushroom toppings ……. Truly a tasty Pizza it was ……. The Butterscotch Milk Shake 🥤was also very good in combination with the Pizza . After Pizza and Butterscotch Milk Shake, we took Apple Pie 🥧 at the end …… The Apple Pie 🥧 here was excellent too …… Truly a very nice café with a cozy outdoor environment . The service here was quick and warm, definitely deserve a mention . The best time to come here is during evenings, as cool breeze of the Ganga river added to the charm of this place . Try to take a table next to the railing to get spectacular views of the river. Even though this place has started serving Chinese and Indian, it is better to stick to the Italian menu . Moderately priced, this place is a MUST try at Assi Ghat . 😍😍😍 We find this café a truly hidden gem just beside Assi Ghat with beautiful cozy atmosphere of the greeneries around . I strongly recommend this place for authentic Pizza 🍕🥘 and Pasta 🥣 near Assi Ghat at Varanasi ! 👍👍More

Don't miss the ginger tea as well as the Italian food. While it might not be classic Italian pizza, it's a welcome respite.
