Don Giovanni in Worli closed.

December 31, 2009

A few days ago I wrote a post on Don Giovanni’s new Juhu location. I was t Atria today to eat at their Worli branch but was sad to see that it had closed down.

Don Giovanni back in Juhu

December 26, 2009

Don Giovanni is one of my favourite restaurants. About a year ago Don Giovanni shifted from Juhu to Worli while the Juhu branch was to be renovated. According to Burrp Don Giovanni is now back in Juhu behind Kings International Hotel. I have no clue where that is and will probably stick to the Worli branch anyways.

Another place that I had been wanting to try for ages and finally decided to go there about a two and a half years ago. Since then Iv been hooked. I believe this place is really popular with the Italian expatriates in Mumbai and I guess this is due to the fact that it is really authentic. This place easily serves some of the best italian food in Mumbai. I recommend the Pizza Ai Salami and the Beef Lasagna. The food here is authentic unlike most other restaurants where it is changed to suit the Indian Palate. Also the focus of the restaurant seems to be on the food and not on creating a buzz about itself which again is a good thing. Located opposite the JW Marriot in Juhu the location is pretty decent. The restaurant itself is located in Hotel Bawa where the valet also parks your car. The interiors are OK,Nothing that really excites you. There are huge Ferrari flags instead of curtains which is really cool. Besides that they also have other Italian memorabilia all around. The wall is lined with wine bottles which really adds to the class of the place. Besides that’s there really isn’t much in terms of decor. To be honest the decor looks a bit old and good use a renovation unless the owners are going in for the classic look. One thing that really hits the eye is the raw wood paneling in the wall that doesn’t leave a good impression and I suspect that the previous occupant had a bigger painting there that was taken out when Don Giovani moved in. The service here is really good. much better than most other restaurants. The waiters know the menu and are quick to jump in with suggestions and help you out. The food doesn’t take too long to get to your table either which again is an added bonus. Now coming to the most important part – the food. I was really impressed with the food here. The Pizzas here are great and I doubt too many restaurants in Mumbai could come close to it. The meat used on the pizzas is top quality and I suspect the meat and cheese are imported. The base is thin but not overly crispy where you don’t really get the taste of the base and its more like eating papad. The lasagna too was great and definatly a notch above anything else available. The deserts to be honest were a little overrated and were a letdown compared to the rest of the meal. Now coming to value. The pizzas are around 400 and I believe the lasgna is around the same. Moderately priced and good value for what it is. If they renovated the place a bit Im sure they could hike prices up by at least 50%. Overall a great place and definatly one of my favourite restaurants.

I ate at Mangi Ferra today. Iv been hearing tonnes of good things about it with quite a few people saying its the best Italian restaurant in Mumbai. I always wanted to know if it was as good as my current favourite – Don Giovanni. The entrance looks really nice with a tree just before the door which adds a nice touch to the place.The place was done up well and even had a section with a nice couch for a couple of drinks or something but somehow the place lacked class. The menu didn’t really have too many non vegetarian dishes to chose from and there were definitely more vegetarian dishes than non vegetarian – not a good sign. They had a wood fired oven and so I had to try their pizza. I could definitely taste the flavour added by this oven but somehow the pizza was just not up to the mark. I hope I am not being a snob about this but the pizza seemed like it had been Indianized and lacked the authenticity and taste of Don Giovanni. The menu didn’t have too many options for toppings, with chicken, ham, peperoni and sea food being the only non vegetarian options. The quality of meat isn’t anywhere close to Don Giovani even though the pizzas cost roughly the same amount. My friend ordered a pasta which again really disappointed me – not authentic enough. The service is about OK and the waiters are polite and the service was quicker than Don Giovanni for sure. However the waiters don’t know much about the food and you have to kind of figure out everything for yourself. The restaurant is as expensive as Don Giovanni which IMO is much better value with more authentic and better quality dishes. Overall Don Giovanni 1 Mangi Ferra 0. I always suspected that Mangi Ferra was another one of those over hyped places that has this buzz about it but the food isn’t as good as you would expect it to be. I guess I was right.
