Prego - The Westin

This fine-dining Italian restaurant has been a family favourite for many years, and we still continue to love their creamy pastas, hand-tossed pizzas and homemade breads. They also have premium wines on offer. What we love about Prego is the fact that the Italian dishes are all prepared with a contemporary twist. Try the bigne di pollo, the aragosta (it’s grilled lobster), and the stunning panna cotta al cafe!

Big moments deserve celebrations at this swanky place. We particularly enjoy the ambience here with large groups and family. Located in the members-only club Soho House, Cecconi brings Italy to Mumbai in the form of gourmet gnocchi, ravioli, Bolognese and so much more. Thanks to the beach view, the entire dining experience feels luxe AF. Try the wood-fired pizzas, the angel hair and prawn pasta, and their iconic Tiramisu!

This Italian restaurant at JW Marriott Juhu is all about enjoying traditional Italian gourmet dishes, complete with bread and wine. Even though the dishes are gourmet, they are all prepared in home style, thus making this a comfortable indulgence.

You should try their spinach ravioli and mushroom soup.
