Love Pizza? This Eatery Does 15 Variants Of Romana Pizza & More
What Makes It Awesome?
Somewhere between fast food and fine dine lies a space that’s usually filled with Italian or Asian joints, and then there is PizzaExpress, a brand that elevates the pizza pasta experience without being heavy on the pocket. The ambience is casual chic and now they have beer and wine too, which by the way is 1+1 during Happy Hours. What I like is the spiffy vibe, good service, and a decent distance between tables, in case wine makes you chatty. Their recent menu additions had us going back for dinner the other day, and as always it was a pleasant surprise. They’ve launched the Romana pizza, which is a thin-crust pizza served with exotic toppings and simple, fresh ingredients. It’s bigger (14”), it’s thinner, and thereby crispier, and is said to be inspired by how pizzas are made in Rome. Though we’re not big on fusion, strangely enough, the Tandoori chicken pizza was fabulous, not overly spiced with an aromatic sprinkling of green chilli slivers and fresh coriander, it was delightful after a Navratri meat hiatus. Romana pizza comes in 15 variants from Pollo Forza, Cipolla Piccante, Fungi di Bosco, Etna, American Hottest, IL Padrino 65, Apollo, Padana, Pollo Ad Astra, Melanzane Piccante, Margherita Bufala to Verdure Bianca, Pomodoro Pesto, Polpette Bolognese, and Pollo Coriander Pesto. Though I suggest you start with the chicken meatballs, nestled in a tomato and chicken mince sauce that’s awesome with a side of their breadsticks. And finish with the chocolate cheesecake. If you’re not in the mood to drink, their mocktails taste awesome with a fiery pizza. If you want to choose from the regular menu, then don’t miss the chicken wings!
What Could Be Better?
Since they already have wine and beer, a full-fledged bar would definitely elevate the experience.
