Mia Cucina, finally food that tastes Italian

Mia Cucina is a small restaurant Italian restaurant in Pali Naka Bandra. The place has an upmarket ambiance and a price to go with!

The ambiance is soothing and relaxing which is a big plus point of Mia Cucina. The crowd is essentially Bandraites along with foreign people who live nearly. We were there early but couldn’t find a table inside the A/C section so had to sit outside but thankfully, the cool evening breeze and lower humidity levels kept us from sweating.

The menu here is unique in a way that it is hand written. The person who wrote the menu has a clear handwriting! But this was a unique surprise especially after the hand written bill served to us by Deja Vu.

But we did order ourselves some coolers. We called for a Black Soda which was essentially cranberry juice with soda.
For starters we ordered for a Bruschetta Pollo. The bread was crunchy, cheesy and laden with Balsamic Vinegar. It had a nice taste to it, a bit tangy but tasty. However, I felt the Brushetta was a let down, especially compared to the food items we had subsequently.

For main course we called for Strozzapreti Con Pollo. Strozzapreti is what gave the meal its character. Parmesan cheese along with chicken cubes and tomato sauce made for a somewhat bland main course.

We were surprised we didn’t get any more sauces along with the main course. Probably should have asked but do not think they give any other sauces otherwise.

Oh, before I forget, they offer Sour Bread and home-made butter as appetizers. It was the first time for me with sour bread and the taste grew on me, as it is generally so with bread and me!

The meal was filling and was topped up with White Chocolate Cheese Cake. Tasted like Milky White with Cheese Cake in the mix.

Overall, we opined that Mia Cucina served excellent Italian Food and the service isn’t bad either. However, the price was a bit higher but it made up for the ambiance and the food. The overall bill was Rs.709 with the breakup as follows: Black Soda: Rs.65, Bruschetta: Rs.150, Strozzapreti: Rs.275, White Chocolate Cheesecake: Rs. 140

I think Mia Cucina is a good place to hang out, have good food and soak in the environment. Outside seating is recommended especially late in the evenings. Apparently the pizzas here are nice so if any of you guys try it out, do not forget to leave your comments here!
