Bella Ciao

A beautiful place near Thiruvanmiyur beach. We wanted to have a relaxed lunch and the demand for pizza/pasta from the kid led us to this place. Weather was pleasant and we chose the outdoor seating. I was a bit hesitant in getting the attention of the staff in the outdoors. But they assured me that there won't be any problem with that. The staff informed that, Bruschette will be served as complimentary. I was in no mood for starters. So just ordered a portion of fries with cheese for the kid. Lemon Iced tea, a mock-tail named alba, a mix of sweet lime, pineapple and strawberry syrup and a lemon soda were our orders for the drink. The mock-tail was so refreshing and the other two were good too.

Ordered a chicken bbq pizza, carbonara sans the bacon and meat ravioli. Pizza was 12 inch, super thin and tasted yummy with right amount of sauce. I personally prefer more cheese in my pizza, but there are limitations with thin crust ones. So it was okay. Folks at home won't eat bacon, so I asked them to replace bacon with chicken in the carbonara. They agreed to that. Spaghetti was cooked al dente and the sauce was very good. Ravioli was mind blowing. Perfect sized ravioli stuffed with minced chicken which was perfect in flavours. Oh that sauce was so creamy and so delicious. Loved it to bits.

While everything was going in the right direction, the climax wasn't that pleasing. Desserts weren't upto the mark. Tiramisu wasn't set properly and was quite runny. Out of all the gelato's we ordered, that single scoop of coffee alone tasted good. Vanilla and strawberry gelato were below average. Like the low quality ice creams.

Staff were polite and service was very attentive. Paid 3.1K for all these. It's definitely on the expensive side. An occasional indulgence. I will definitely go back for the pizza and the ravioli :)
