Fun Sunday With Italian Cuisine: Bella Italia Review


When the day is a Sunday and the mood is leisure, one of the few things that one can think of is some super delicious grub to try out and thus take a break from the day-to-day rut. Women especially wanna have some relaxed time during the weekends, and prefer dining out with friends and families.
So, if you are one of those, then we are bringing to you a new destination of lip-smacking food that assures some flavoursome courses, midst some cosy ambience...

For the Love of Italian Cuisine.. Bella Italia at Holiday Inn, Aerocity, New Delhi
Bella Italia, one of the Italian restaurant chains of the UK with more than 90 restaurants in the United Kingdom has opened it's first Asian restaurant at Holiday Inn at the posh Aerocity in the capital. Since we had recently experienced Holiday Inn down south (Remember our Kochi Feature), we decided not to miss the chance to experience this beauty when we received this lovely invite. 


Rose & Paan Shakes, Spot-on!

So, we reached this business & leisure hotel one fine afternoon last month to try out the restaurant and it's authentic Italian cuisine. The first glimpse of the restaurant, and it's tagline (Pizza Pasta Grill) you know that you are going to be in good hands of an expert chef. The ambience of BI is absolutely welcoming, and you can't miss checking the wall-art, the graffiti and the modern colour combination of vibrant stripes. The restaurant is amazingly spacious and has another floor (entry from inside only) that has this stunning Vespa standing right there for your quick selfies. 

 We shortly made ourselves comfortable at a corner, with our little reviewer who was there to try out some of her fave Italian dishes. The table in no time had these beautiful-looking mocktails and shakes on our table. The Paan shake was spot-on, and the rose one had a certain freshness that is apt for a hot and humid summer afternoon. The little reviewer simply found the paan shake to be irresistible.

Legume Antipasto Board 
Veg Food Platter with Loads of Cheese!

It was surprising to know that BI had recently ventured in this Asian side of the world, despite running 90 restaurants in the UK. Although, the Indian consumer is well-versed with the Italian flavours by now, probably the authenticity is what makes many Italian restaurant chains think twice before venturing into the Indian market of F&B.




For us, what did matter was the food, and the dishes that kept surprising us one after the other...
Being on the vegetarian side we tried the veg platters, like five lettuce feta cheese salad with some apricots on it, the rocket eaf salad with different types of cheese and olives, and many more in the main course.

The gelato cart is the one that you may not want to give a miss to, but in our case, the 5 dessert platter was more than enough to keep us satiated and happy before we said goodbye to it...BI certainly has the wow effect both in terms of food and interiors. And, you our readers are always the best judge for it.

Shot Desserts, Super-Yum!!

Courses Tried & Tasted at BI were: Legume Antipasto Board, Arancini Funghi, Misticanza,  Cannelloni Ricotta,  Polenta Alla Griglia and Shot Desserts

Meal for Two: INR 1500 Onwards

The restaurant is soon starting it's Kids Menu that's getting unveiled in the coming week, Stay tuned as we place to share more...
