India is home to many Italian restaurants, but few stay true to the authenticity of the cuisine. La Piazza at Hyatt Regency Delhi, however, breaks free from this stereotype and gives you the real deal. By Team T+L
As you step into La Piazza, Hyatt Regency Delhi, you get a sense of what this restaurant from 1994 has to offer. Archways greet you as you walk on rustic tiled floors, making your way to wooden tables. A relatively dim lit surrounding adds to the Italian trattoria vibe that the hotel so skilfully excels at. Flipping through their elaborate menu only reasserts this further.
Classic wood-fired pizzas, al dente pasta, scrumptious salads and starters, and a delectable list of desserts find a space in their menu. Drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, are also available here. Pair this with a live kitchen, and you’ve got yourself an authentic culinary experience like no other.
You’ll find a burst of colours in each of the salad dishes here. Ingredients like farmed tomatoes, smoked Scamorza cheese, and aged balsamic dressings feature in the recipes. Each element plays an integral part in bringing the dish together, while also ensuring flavours are not compromised in any way.
While here, it would be a crime to not eat their signature pizzas. Baked in a classic wood-fired oven, each bite into their soft mozzarella topped dough justifies why this place has become a popular dining choice to locals and visitors. With over a dozen pizza options, it’s almost certain that all kinds of tastes will be catered to.
Spaghetti aglio e olio, and ricotta and truffle filled tortellini is another must-have at this Italian eatery. While the former is a traditional pasta dish from Naples that leaves you wanting more, the latter is a zesty tortellini cooked in a buttery oil, which will compel you to lick your fingers clean.
The best way to end your meal here is to indulge in a Tiramisu, another La Piazza Signature. The coffee-flavoured creamy goodness is crafted with love. As the waiter brings this dessert out of the kitchen, an almost heavenly aroma is sure to fill the room. Irrespective of how much you stuff yourself during the culinary extravaganza, La Piazza’s tiramisu won’t feel too heavy. The light, lingering flavours are sure to spread a smile across your face, and a comforting warmth in your heart.
