If there is any cuisine that mastered the art of making carbs more desirable than you ever thought possible…it’s got to be Italian. There are many options out there for your Italian fix, Pizzeria Pulcinella is one of them where you can find authentic taste with delightful taste
About Pizzeria Pulcinella:
Chef Domenico and his wife Claudia are typical of the residents of Naples and the Campania region when it comes to food. They were brought up to be passionate and quite opinionated about their cuisine. They have followed the style of the cooking of the region with the aim to preserve the flavours of the local fresh ingredients as well as their fragrance, thereby maintaining a focus on simplicity rather than sophistication. Food from this region is considered to be the ‘soul of Italy’. And this is what you will experience at Pulcinella’s where most of the ingredients used in the restaurant are imported from Europe.
Few days back I got to try this Tuscany fare at Barsha outlet. Upon entering the whole atmosphere gives you feel like walking on the streets of old Italy. Vintage lamps,re bricks wall and wooden tables add authenticity to the whole concept.
What we tried there?
- Melanzane A Funghetti
- Caesar Salad
- Lentil Soup
- Royal Pizza
- Coteletta Alla Milanese
- Grilled Salmon
- Pastiera Na Polentana (Dessert)
In starters we ordered Burrata and Melanzane A Funghetti. Burrata was fresh and served in a bowl of bread where as Melanzane were fried eggplant slices, layered with tomatoes, mozzarella and basil.Lentil soup was creamy and thick in texture, totally comforting. Ceaser salad was a melody of fresh veggies and light on stomach.
In main course we ordered royal pizza which is one of their famous pizza. I am not a fan of thin crust pizza( dont’ judge me) but if you like it you would definitely enjoy trying it here. Coteletta Alla was breaded chicken pieces fried to perfection and served with fries and sauces. Grilled salmon was love, no wonder on my next visit I will order it again. Serving size is good and value for money.
In dessert there are good option, usually I try tiramisu but this time I opted for Pastiera Na Polentana. This authentic Italian dessert made with cooked wheat, eggs, ricotta cheese and flavored with orange flower water. It was my first time to try this toothsome dessert and delighfully enjoyed it. What I like about Tuscany dessert, the balance of sweet and creaminess which doesn’t give you sugar rush.
We ended our session on a cup of green tea and happily made our way to the home. Try out this place for your Italian fix
