Your guide to the best Italian restaurants in Delhi NCR that will open a whole new palate of pasta-bilities for you! By Sreetama Basu

Italian cuisine, or Cucina Italiana, as Italians will call it, is one of the most famous gastronomies worldwide. One of the unique things about Italian cuisine is that they believe in simplicity. With most dishes made up of only a few ingredients, Italian cuisine is all about the quality of the ingredients, rather than the complexity of preparation. Vegetables, grains, fish, potatoes, rice, corn, sausages, pork, and different types of cheese are mostly the base ingredients in this cuisine.

From the classics like pizza and pasta to some more exotic offerings, we have rummaged through the best restaurants in the city to bring you some of the finest flour-work that craft Italian delicacies with finesse.
