Artusi Ristorante,Golf Course Road, Gurgaon

If there is one cuisine I can have any time, anywhere, it is Italian. A cheese drenched and creamy dish with a glass of red wine – my my, the evening is set.

Artusi is a luxurious fine dine Italian restaurant located in One Horizon Centre. The decor is classical European with intricate chandeliers carrying mini candles hanging down from the top. The background music is mostly from Godfather and the paintings on the wall delicately beckon the art connoisseurs.

Artusi is well known for their authentic ingredients and freshly prepared hand made pasta. What could be more delightful than having Italian dishes straight from the kitchens of Italian moms!

Shrimp cocktail: Hats off to the presentation! The juicy shrimps lathered in pink cocktail sauce (Salsa Rosa), enveloped in a lettuce leaf and are served in a Martini glass. The sauce lends its creaminess and tanginess to the delicate shrimps.

Burrata: So heavenly creamy! This fresh cheese was served with a crunchy toasted bread, plump cherry tomatoes and basil pesto sauce – a very light yet fulfilling appetiser.

Torino di Pori: More cheese! The quiche or the cheese and leeks filled tart is creamy and has a crumbly texture. The Gorgonzola cheese adds more depth to this dish by lending its heavy buttery consistency.

Cappelletti with mushroom: The minute delicate pasta pockets are indeed a sight to marvel at. And when they are filled with cheese and served with juicy mushrooms – Mama Mia!

Paglia e Fieno: The finely prepared angel hair pasta – yellow and green colour – is artistically served in a tomato based creamy sauce with succulent mushrooms. The ensemble is very flavourful and slurpy.

Tiramisu: I never ever had a better version of Tiramisu! The mascarpone cheese is so light, fluffy, airy and creamy and the sponge layer soaked in brandy and coffee is pretty thin. Do not forget to try this dessert.

Cichhetti by Mr. Beans, DLF Cyber Hub, Gurgaon

Cichhetti in Italian means “small bites” and is a regular favourite in the streets of Venice. Going by the same notion, Cichhetti by Mr. Beans is into serving calorie counted dishes which fulfil you but just in the right way with no overwhelmed belly. That way you are able to savour more dishes with no guilty pleasures.

Smoking Cranberry Jalapeño Cream Cheese dome: Cheese is smoked and infused with finely chopped garlic, jalapeños and olives and served with crunchy crackers, a spiced jam of raspberries & cranberries, sliced olives, jalapeños and green apple.

Cheddar & Chive Scones: Freshly baked English scones having a bitter flavour because of chives and served with the raspberries & cranberries spiced jam, butter and cream cheese. The scones have a soft yet crumbly texture.

Goth Aglio Olio in linguini: As if the magic of Aglio Olio was not enough that these guys prepared linguini in mushroom sauce. The flavour of the button, shiitake and porcini mushrooms is so enchanting and the pasta is super slurpy.

Coq Au Vin – Red Wine Chicken: Highly highly recommended! The juicy chicken legs and breast are served with crispy bacon strips, mashed potatoes and grilled baby onions, button mushrooms, beans and broccoli. The chicken is so tender that it readily comes off the bone and goes so well with the creamy mashed potatoes.

Vanilla & coconut panna cotta: First, the creamy yet smooth texture of this dessert will blow your mind. Second, the combination of vanilla and coconut is so mesmerising that you will want to savour this forever. Third, the tanginess of the strawberry sorbet goes compliments the panna cotta. Lastly the freshly baked meringues actually melt in your mouth.
