Worth another visit

After reading many detective books and watching True Lies numerous times, here was my chance to be a spy, a food spy. I jumped at the prospect and was told that the restaurant under microscope was to be Little Italy, Kamaladi.

I meticulously planned to do the spying and decided that daytime will get me better results so I went to Little Italy with a friend, for added pair of spying eyes, on a Thursday afternoon. Being lunch time the restaurant had very few diners.

I was impressed with the cleanliness of the place. The table mats read ‘Nothing ventured, nothing gained’ by William Shakespeare, which was interesting. Although the place is next to a busy road, it was quiet with beautiful western instrumental music playing in the background which added to the charm of the place but soon they ran out of music. I guess the place could do with some greenery, some pots and flowers will give it a little romantic twist. Otherwise it is quite business like. I was happy to see neat and clean wash rooms.

Biraj, the waiter serving us was helpful with a smile. I decided to order Bruschetta Al Pomodoro and Insalata Mista, a salad with fresh vegetables, olives added with virgin olive oil and vinegar, for starters. Both the dishes were very attractive to look at and also yummy so we finished it in no time.

For main course I ordered Lasagne Alla Napoletana and Al Pesto Genovese with parmesan cheese. Lasagne was perfect, hot and melting with cheese but pasta was a little disappointing because it was not hot enough and I wished it had more cheese. To top it all, I ordered Sizzling Chocolate Walnut Brownie served with vanilla ice cream. I just loved the way the dessert came to me — sizzling hot with all those crunchy walnuts and ice cream added in front of us.

Little Italy for me proved to be a very satisfying experience and I would love to visit it again. No wonder Italy is more famous for its cuisine than its history or monuments.
