My love for pizza drove me to a two-hour journey to Renaissance Hotel. You would be wondering why two-hour? Yes, thanks to Mumbai Traffic,but that did not disappoint me knowing I would get to indulge into Authentic Italian Cuisine. No matter how, I was adamant to get through it. Finally the wait was over and I reached my destination though a bit late.
Selected food bloggers were invited for a special food tasting at Fratelli fresh by Chef Cristian. He warmly greeted us and made us comfortable. Since it was new menu launch, we were first shown the food journey clip of Chef Cristian and how he started his chef life inspired by his Grandma’s legacy. Chef took care of each preparation and his team did a marvellous job.
My favorite Pizza ie. Vegetarian Pizza topped with Tomato, Mozarella cheese,Caramelised onion and pepper. The thin crust base made all the way and sauce was not piquant. However overall dish was above average. I would definitely like to have more seasoning and add-on to it.
Mushroom Risotto – I usually never try risotto . It took some time to serve but it was worth the wait. The preparation and ingredients took it to the next level. It was a perfect blend of mushrooms, risotto rice and parmesan.
Next was Gnocchi ie its creamy pesto rosso with mozarella gratin. It’s traditional Italian favorite dish.It’s a mixture of cheese, herbs and garlic.I just loved the creamy sauce which is rich and tasty. The pesto gets tossed up with pasta and is so delicious.
Heading over to Dessert now , Tiramisu, classical Italian favorite dish.The first time I tried it long back I don’t remember when but trust me this one its a killer. It’s a fusion of cocoa dust, mascarpone, kahlua. Its light and yummy.
My verdict : The ambience and décor is stylish yet classic. The service is quick and servers are attentive and friendly. Awesome food prepared by Chef Cristian.
