Italiano at DLF Cyber Hub

Italiano, situated in DLF Cyber Hub Gurgaon, serves Italian food with an accent on comfort food. 

Cyber Hub is home for all working men and women who have been enjoying places to eat and drink almost every day. This time I decided to get a taste of it too.. 

On any given day, setting foot in this arcade and deciding where to dine, is a task in itself. Thank God! I was here for a bloggers meet. 


Ambience --

The interiors are earthy with brick walls and other knick knacks like cages, jars and slogans which makes it look off beat. The lamps and paintings gives it an added advantage. Outdoor seating is best during winter months. 




Food Talk --

As soon as we were seated, someone from the staff poured our glasses with Fresh Pomegranate and Basil Dream juice, which was really refreshing.
A bread basket that was served in a cute bucket came along. Served with butter that had a prominent flavor of oregano. The bread was not soft.
  • Salad - Ginger Prawn Salad; Fresh greens with prawns and ginger blended very well. Rating 4/5. Panzenella Veg Salad;  a salad of bread and tomatoes, mostly eaten during the summers. Rating 3.5/5
  • Platters - Both Vegetarian and Non vegetarian were served according to ones preference. The veg platter consisted of vegetable tarts, cottage cheese skewers, pita bread and a variety of dips like Salsa, Aioli and Spicy peanut dips. On the other hand, the non veg platter consisted of pesto chicken, chicken skewers, pita breads and fresh veggies. Being able to hog on both, I found the vegetarian more interesting than the other. Rating 3.5/5
  • Penne Arrabiatta - Its light and flavorsome as compared to other Italian joints serving pasta. Portion served is good for one person. Rating 3.5/5
  • Lasagna Catalize - Found it a bit too dry. Rating 2.5/5
  • Pizza Primevera Picante - Its loaded with vegetables like tomato, spinach, sun dried tomatoes,zucchini, red onions, broccoli and topped with pickled chillies. A must have for all vegetarian pizza lovers. Rating 3.5/5
  • Pizza Pollo Pollo Pollo - This pizza has roasted, smoked  and sausage chicken layered on a thin and crunchy base. Rating 4/5
  • Pette Al Pollo - Baked chicken breast infused with spinach and mushroom, glazed with dami sauce. Served with roasted vegetables and rosemary potatoes. This dish was outstanding. Rating 4.5/5
  • Filetto di Pesce alla Griglia - Was grilled fish with tarter sauce and fresh vegetables. The fish they serve is basa. Very soft and a melt in the mouth. Rating 4/5
During our meal, we also ordered Fresh Virgin Mojito and Virgin Mary. Found Mojito to be extra sweet for my palate. Loved the Virgin Mary because it was not too thick and was subtle.


 Dessert --
  • Tiramisu - The simplest tiramisu I had. With the right amount of coffee and cream. Loved it! Rating 5/5
  • Cheesecake - Its fresh - soft - crunchy. Rating 5/5
Overall, a wonderful afternoon spent meeting and interacting with new fellow foodies. Italiano, basically serves comfort food. Service is prompt and the staff is generous. They even gave me a tour of their open kitchen where they have their wood fired pizza oven.
