Meal : Dinner
The Pizzeria is the sister restaurant of Not Just Jazz by the bay and part of the Mars restaurant group (Roti, 3 Flights Up, Dosa Diner, All Stir Fry, Gordon House amongst others) The thing about the Mars group is that they have a) always been ahead of their time when it came to chain dining. b) too eclectic in their product offering c) the food most places was either just not good or went downhill sooner or later)
The Pizzeria over the years has become a south bombay instituiton and fortunately nothing has changed over at the restaurant. They have resisted the urge to add air conditoning or redesign the place or the menu. The place continues to be insanely busy and consistently good.
The spiral pasta in pesto sauce with sund driend tomato and peppers was just too good. Creamier than i would like but the essence of the pesto came through, heavy but fairly satisfying little dish.
the beverage of choice was Diet PepsiOne of the best pizzas in the world in my opinion. As much as i love goat cheese or feta on my pizza, this is the Bombay Masala, the king of all pizzas. Anyone who is coming to this city MUST go and try this evil dish. Just cant get enough.
Overall, the place continues to flourish, get their early in the evening or late in the afternoon if you want a quick seat or be prepared to wait upto an hour, especially Sunday lunch or dinner. Dont experiment too much, stick to the fundamentals.
