This Italian Restaurant Serves Pizzas That Are Hard To Find Anywhere Else In Pune
What Makes It Awesome?
A plate of pasta and a delicious tiramisu, Italian food is always great to dig into. La Gustosa, located on the busy streets of Kothrud serves authentic Italian as well as European delicacies.
La Gustosa is a cozy restaurant that's fit for dates or to go with friends. The classy rustic interiors give you a feel of sitting at a traditional Italian bistro. The cafe also has good lighting, so foodies can make their Instagram followers jealous.
The cafe is reputed for Italian as well as European delicacies. You must try out their minestrone soup, zuccae pori which is basically pumpkin and leek soup. If you like salads, do check out toscana salad, caprese, greca and the classic caesar salad. The best way to judge an Italian place is indeed by its pasta. And you must try out their pasta aglio olio. Also try the penne al pesto, alfredo, arabbatia, spinach and ricotta ravioli and other options.
La Gustosa also serves pizzas and the fragrance of fresh bread lingers around the cafe. You will find di verdure, funghi speziato, piccante mais, prosciutto di pollo and other authentic pizzas that you won't find easily in the city.
When it comes to desserts, you must try out the traditional amaretto chocolate pudding and the all-time favourite tiramisu.
A meal for two will cost you INR 1200 and everyone who knows Kothrud well will tell you it's a must-visit.
What Could Be Better?
We wish they had more authentic options like aubergine parmigiana among other recipes.
Ensure you make a reservation before you head to the restaurant.
