Pizza in Mumbai

adhish Oct 20, 2008 06:03 PM

I guess every city has to have a good pizza place. Mumbai has a few too.

1. Don Giovanni in Juhu(undergoing a renovation) and Worli has some really good pizza. Its not as crisp as some of the other pizzas out there but definitly worth trying. I reccomend their Pizza Ai Salami which has four kinds of salami and lots of cheese.

2. Indigo Deli in Colaba has a really good paper thin pizza. The crust is nice and crisp if thats something you like. I dont think they have a fixed menu and serve up a weekly special salami on their pizzas.

3. Pizzeria at Marine Drive/Powai and Versova has more "consumer" pizza and they deliver. The quality is dipping to be honest though its still the best pizza delivery. Their pizza has an Indian twist to it and I guess some people who dont enjoy authentic pizza may like Pizzeria more.

Mangi Ferra in Juhu has a woodfired pizza oven but their Pizza is crap. Not authentic at all. Also worth mentioning is the coffee shop at the ITC Grand Maratha where I have had a decent pizza. Open 24 hours quite good if you get the munchies in the middle of the night

    Adhish, are these places actually using mozzarella? (The few in India I've had the misfortune to observe didn't.) I care most about Indigo Deli since it's nearest to me, but curious generally. Thanks!

      Hey David,

      Which are the ones that you have tried so far?

        Some crap in Lucknow that someone else ordered (one in Mahanagar, the other on MG road near Hazratganj; maybe it was a Pizza Hut?); I've didn't attempt to recall the names since the rule "Don't eat pizza in Lucknow" covers all situations nicely.

        In any case, I have no idea what the situation is here in Mumbai but never having seen western cheeses outside of expensive shops, my default is skepticism.

          Yea, you can't expect to find anything other than mozarella and cheddar at regular stores in Mumbai. I guess there isn't enough demand for it considering the fact that most people aren't that exposed to it. If you do try these pizza places, let us know what you think.

      this is a bit late, but I was recommended a place called Mia Cucina for wood-fired pizza. Any thoughts?

        I recommend Trattoria in the President Hotel. I personally think they have the best pizza in town and is on par with anywhere else (many countries). I love this place.

          I recommend Celini at the Grand Hyatt, Santacruz. Excellent, thin, crispy bases, and high quality ingredients. Prices from 650 INR to 750 iNR. I've seldom had better outside of Italy!

          Favourites are the Capretta (tomtatoes, mozarella, goat's cheese, peppers and artichokes) and Parmigiana (_lots_ of parma ham, mozarella and parmesan.

              I love the thin crust pizza at Olio. Relatively new place.. totally in love with the pizzas here.

                Frangipani at the Oberoi was the standard bearer for a long time. not sure how its help up, since I haven't been in a few years. Also, not sure what the status is after the attacks last year. Anyone have updates on this place?
