Its a boon that most good restaurants in Jubilee hills are away from the traffic and pollution and close to my office. Little Italy overlooking the entire jubilee hills view steals your heart right from the beginning. I had lot of expectations from the food since their Karkhana branch served us some fabulous stuff.
We opted for the buffet and started off with tortilla chips with tomato salsa and pita bread with hummus and Mutabbal. My best friend has a tendency of getting too excited at the very sight of pita bread, hummus and middle eastern cuisine in general (got free lessons on how to pronounce hummus -from the epiglottis-) The dips were heavenly!
For starters came Special Tacos and Funghi Trifolata (Garlic bread served with herbed mushrooms). It was my first time with tacos and I was blown away. Beans, sauces, topped with grated cottage cheese, the tacos were crunchy, melt in the mouth, subtle yet sexy. The mushrooms in Funghi Trifolata were brilliantly cooked and went well with the crispy buttery garlic breads.
Next we were served the Little Italy special thin crust pizzas (Mediterranean and Margharita respectively). It would be wrong to compare these with our Pizza Huts and Dominos but nothing impressive about the wood burnt pizzas here.
I couldn’t have left without trying pastas in Little Italy so it was time for Fusilli with mushrooms and white sauce and my eternal favourite Spinach Ravioli with mixed sauce. It was the best Ravioli I’ve ever tried. Completely foodgasm material I say!
We rounded up with sinful nutella and banana filled pancakes and a refreshing blueberry dessert and left the restaurant with a huge grin.
Oh and the restaurant is completely vegeterian.
My tip- Great place for a casual lunch. Can’t say if its the best italian fare in the city coz I m yet to try the others.
Price- 485 per head including taxes.
