Paaji Italiano

Reading the great reviews, had been meaning to check this place out…..Was on pick up duty for my daughter from her dance class & convinced her that this was the IN place etc. etc.

We were the only people there, but as my daughter says’ place, layout, bicycle on the wall rocks’

She asked for Caipirojca – from the young lad – with a dhoni type pigtail – and was mightily impressed that he pronounced it correctly, gave her the ingredients & served it chilled…had mint & was worth the couple of sips I managed to steal.

Suffering from cold & fever, I opted for chicken manchow soup. Came piping hot……the first spoonful…..ecstasy….hot, tasty with chicken in every spoon….blew the cold & sinus wide open.

Followed this up with bruschetta – completely differently than other places, cheese seemed to be missing but had a unique flavour of its own. And the quantity was large – think 8 pcs, so acted like an Ender than a starter.

But had already ordered the standard try out – Margherita Pizza – A large size again, enough for 1 person’s full meal. Extremely biscuity thin crust, with just the right amount of cheese, made me think of the one I had at the Taj President years ago….

Too stuffed to do anything else except leave, looked at the sweets lustfully on the way out.

The service was extremely friendly, a tad slow, but then we were in a hurry & the Sardarji smiling away the compliments & asking us to visit again….which we shall do…..since it Rocks!
