The Italiano Cafe welcomes with the White & black Brick printed booth which makes a way to the Outdoor seating this is more like dining on the lawn and will be noisy due to the traffic and open place but suitable for Night time.Further entering is the Sheer glass doors and the Kitchen is the first thing to be noticed ,There is the Gelato Counter ,2 seaters,high chairs with table and comfortable sofas for large group.the interiors has been set to be black and white with brick wall and big glass windows.The crockery used is very interesting like the bill comes in the Metal box which has the caption of DAMAGE (makes sense :p)
MENU : The menu is Voluminous. This Beverage menu is the largest I have seen so far From Ice teas to Flavoured Green Tea , Smoothies & Shakes , Lemonade and Mojitos. Not to miss the Garden Tea ( You GotTa Try this ) OkAY they have Black Basil Tea ! Sounds Interesting Right ? but this is just the beginning of the menu.the starters ranges from American to Italian and They are introducing Mexican too. Homemade Pastas to Gourmet Burgers are something which is not new to chennai but the 30′ Inch Pizza is definitely new to food scene,even then gelato is new to chennai Padrino made it to the news to replace Ice cream for Gelato in chennai.
MAIN COURSE :
GELATO is the New ICE CREAM
Gelato is not only a fancy name for Ice cream in italian but also the way of making ice cream in italian.It is churned at a much slower rate, incorporating less air and leaving the gelato denser than ice cream.so its texture stays silkier and softer. Because it has a lower percentage of fat than ice cream, the main flavor ingredient really shines through.
Both the flavours had an intense taste to it,the gelato was dense and rich.I would prefer gelato over ice cream anyway another factor what grips me is its low in FAT 😀
SERVICE: From Minute to attention to courteous staff ,the service was excellent.
PRICE: Meal for 2 Cost INR 1200 .
Boiling to Down : Padrino is every Italian cuisine lovers dream. the essence of good Italian cooking is predominantly shown in the dishes,true authenticity always has the place when there is no playing in the flavours that’s why it’s all pure italian here. being a little heavy on the pockets but that’s vouch for the quality meal and good experience.
Happy Eating ! 🙂
