Signore e signori! We have discovered what should be the gnocchi to your heart.
Save your sunshine-iest hello for Romano’s, the specialty Italian restaurant at JW Marriott Mumbai Sahar. They’ve just crafted a new Pranzo or lunch menu, serving home-style Italian cooking, with extra specials every Sunday. Pranzo means an Italian home-cooked meal. What better than to experience the rustic flavors of an Italian home kitchen on a Sunday with family and friends alongside.
Pranzo is the brainchild of Roberto Zorzoli, Head Chef, Romano’s and Anshuman Bali, Executive Chef, JW Marriott Mumbai Sahar, and their highly skilled culinary brigade, all cooking up a cluster of new dishes from Sicily, Milan, Rome, Naples and Florence.
This includes a wide range of antipasti (appetisers), zuppe (soups) and bruschetta. The Primi (first course) encompasses Risotto Ai Fungi or wild mushroom risotto; Gnocchi Pesto; Linguine Carbonara featuring crispy Pancetta with Carbonara sauce; and Penne Al Ragu or penne with lamb bolognaise. Then you move on to Secondi (second course), starring Costolette or grilled lamb chops; and Branzino Cartoccio, Chilean Seabass with Caponata.
The Sunday lunch at Romano’s also promises a variety of rustic pizzas- Margherita and Parma (served with rocket leaves, ham and buffalo mozzarella); topped with cheese (caprese, goat cheese with walnuts and honey and burrata can be seen across the menu), cold cuts and fresh, crunchy veggies. Tart lovers, there’s also a separate section dedicated to pickles.
Don’t leave if your life isn’t dolce yet; the divine dessert menu will take care of this. Try the Macedonia, fruit salad with vanilla ice cream; Tiramisu; and Torta di Mele, apple pie with vanilla ice cream.
Add to that a long list of Italian coffees and wines (the in-house sommelier will tell you all about their selection of world class vinos). Swathes of sunshine, an impeccable Italian fare and you’ve got yourself the perfect lunch spot for your date or the whole familia!
