Botticino will wow you with very good Italian food in Mumbai. Located within the Trident at BKC, it is fairly easy to reach. Loved the quail and the feta cheese roulade among the starters,We had wild mushroom Ravioli and it tasted just wow. Lasagne was good too. Tirimsu was the best one ever. I would eat here again. Must be one of the best italian restaurants in Mumbai
Food that I ordered was delicious. I had ordered a Stringoli with pork sausage ragout. The sausages just melted in your mouth and the pasta was well cooked. The other dishes ordered were a sedani chicken and a wild mushroom agnoliti. The chicken dish was ok as the mint sauce was pretty over powering. The mushroom dish was again good and looked different from the standard fare one gets. Plates are extra-large and extra heavy with a small central portion in between. Now it's become the format in most high end restaurants. Ambience is nice and service was excellent even though there were a mix up with the menus as they had the old ones also still around.
We'd been there for dinner on the 14th of April 2014 and it was close to a flawless experience. The service was impeccable, pretty much close to the best I've seen in Mumbai, surpassing even the service at Oberoi which has normally set the bar for me. And the place looked quite full so kudos to the staff. The food was excellent (quite a large vegetarian option so no trouble there) starting with the pan seared goat cheese with fig compote (a total highlight) to the tomato rigatoni and the goat cheese ravioli, both proving to be quite flavorful. We didn't get a chance to try any of the wines but I do plan on visiting again for that very reason. The Fruit punch recommended by the bartender however was quite nice. The only suggestion I'd make is to maybe have a few more options for eggless desserts. However, even taking that into consideration, I'd still rate this as one of the finest restaurants for Italian food I've tried! As far as the ambiance, it pretty much conforms to most of the modern 5 Star Hotels so its really quite nice although it'd be a stretch to consider it romantic or so. If you come here for the food, it's well worth the visit. Keep up the good work!
Had dinner here on a Friday and the place was quite empty (so the service was superb). I ordered a Carpaccio appetiser, which was just about okay. I've had better. Went for Braised Pork as entrée and that was quite good, though the portion seemed rather small (maybe it was because of the huge plates they use!). The best was the dessert.. Ordered a Creme Brulee and it was one of the best I've had. But the best thing about this restaurant is its ambiance. It's in an open area (no doors) on the first floor of the hotel and it feels really spacious, something rare in Mumbai. The place is well lit and the tables are widely spaced out so you can have a peaceful conversation over your meal.
strategically located in BKC, Botticino is getting noticed by one and many.. food is great. especially the lamb rack with roasted potatoes. i order it every time i get to eat there. my other favorites include caprese salad, thincrust pizzas, antipastos, and soups... they have peroni beer and a huge wine cellar, but thats not the best thing.. the best thing is the Chef.. if you leave your plate partially finished, the chef comes from kitchen and asks if it wasnt OK, and if u say that it wasn't, he quickly cooks a small portion of whatever you fancy.. thats how you win the customers...
