Italians restaurants in Mumbai could do worse than to take tips from Del Italia. With mix-and-match décor – think overflowing pot plants and worn wooden shutters – Del Italia is a lovely little place for a laid-back dinner date. In the hot months, the rooftop seating arrangement offers sticky diners a respite from the humidity with a welcome breeze and allows for maximum sunset gazing through designer shades.
In a city that has a zillion dining options on any given night, it’s the little things that count and get people returning time and time again – here, it’s all about cheerful service and the Grappa cocktails. And when it comes to sustenance of the solid variety, standouts include the wood-smoked lasagne and the Neapolitan pizzas. Del Italia does a great tiramisu, too, so weight-watchers are best advised to stay at home.
