This new Italian joint at The Oberoi is serving artfully done comfort food in a buzzing restaurant.

The decadently creamy burrata Pugliese (above) comes with thin shavings of marinated courgette, toasted almonds and basil pesto. It tastes as good as it looks.

A huge pizza oven in the open kitchen churns out crispy and authentic bases which are so light that you can share one and still have room for a main course. Try the diavola pizza topped with devilishly spicy beef salami. 

We were torn between the Italian classics tiramisu and the cannoli. So we chose both and were rewarded with two beautiful dishes. But if you held a gun to our heads, we’d pick the cannoli. Just.
