Lets talk about this Italian restaurant located on the busy road of M.G. Road. My friends and their friends who have gone to this place talk highly of the food and the service. So the Foodholic decided to cover this place and check out the secret behind all the praises.
Tonino is not too far from either Gurgoan or South Delhi and with the metro plying on its route now, I think people challenged with a mode of transport can also stop over for a taste of Italy.
The small and cozy entrance of this place can be missed if you do not pay attention. Landscaped with potted plants and tress, the place is peaceful.
With a detailed spread for antipasti, soups, salads, main course, pizza and dessert, the place has a lot to offer. The restaurant caters well to vegetarians as well as non-vegetarians so my dear vegetarian friends, fear not!
The baked aurbergines with grilled tomatoes was not to praise about.
However the soup of roasted tomatoes was nice. The gnocchi in tomato sauce was also nice but lacked the smoothness of cheese or cream.
The U.S.P of the place is the wood fired oven. This was a treat as I have till date not seen one and was super excited after laying my eyes on it. The pizza options are limited here and you will not see the usual farm fresh, all veggies topping pizza. However, struck by innovation, you will see various cheeses as toppings. Though I loved their thin crust pizza, the over powering salt from the cheese and tomato sauce did not score much with me.
All was forgotten when dessert was ordered. Chocolate lasgna drizzled in white chocolate with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. In each bite you can savour the warm and soft chocolate cake ozzing with chocolate sauce, not to forget the vanilla ice cream.Mouth watering and something I can have daily if calories were counted in diamonds.
Tonino is a place one can try for a change however not a regular place to go (atleast for me)
