Hyatt Regency’s Italian restaurant, La Piazza, has been around since ’94 and their pizzas and pastas have been perfected under chef Ivan’s watchful guidance. We suggest you make a beeline for this.
Fried Calamari, White Truffle Risotto, Tiramisu
Wine – they have carefully curated a selection of more than 500 kinds

Their pizzas are worth writing home about – baked in a special oven that is powered by three energy sources. However, their entire menu is perfect for a wintery, Sunday brunch – we’d even go so far as to tell you to skip T.K’s this weekend and book a table here.
The wooden ceilings, Italian-home-style ambience and a casual vibe, quite unlike that of a 5-star, makes this restaurant ideal for a chilled out meal that’s all about food. La Piazza’s famed wine collection is lined with bottles from across the world, and the staff is happy to recommend a glass that would pair well with each course.
We’ve ever had, paired with garlic mayonnaise, had us gobbling up every last piece. Definitely order yourself a portion of these. Chef Ivan recommended the White Truffle Ravioli and each bite was light, flavourful and scrumptious.
If you’re counting calories, we suggest getting yourself the Watermelon Feta And Grilled Chicken salad – of course we love Feta but it was the freshness of the salad that won us over.
And only call for the Tiramisu – the recipe has remained unchanged for more than a decade. It’s served in a cute cappuccino cup and you’re probably not prepared for how good it tastes.
We devoured it in three big bites and we bet you will too.
That even though T.K’s is Hyatt Regency’s all-time brunch fave, La Piazza gives it tough competition. Sunday Brunch will set you back about INR 2,500 but it’s worth every al dente piece of pasta. We swear.
