Dim lights, cosy setup and great food are what The Flying Spaghetti Monster offers in abundance. What more can you ask for when you can dine somewhere that’s quiet, spacious and classy. If you are craving for authentic Italian food – this is the restaurant for you.
Established in 2014, the restaurant is located on Road No 3 in Banjara Hills with another outlet located on Road No 35 in Jubilee Hills. The restaurant was originally established in Visakhapatnam, before shifting to the city.
The menu is a quirky and interactive one, and keeps the diners occupied while waiting for their orders. They have an extensive menu with refreshing, fruity and minty drinks like Marilyn Mongoose and Zappalicious that complement your meal.
In antipasto, which is the first course of an Italian meal, you have a list of options to choose from. From Crostini melanzana, Antipasto del maiale and Carpaccio di salmone, which basically come in traditional Italian breads with toppings like bacon, salmon, olives and mozzarella, you have your appetiser sorted. While they serve some of the best pizzas like Casa, Tabasco and Pizza con pollo, their pastas are the winners hands down. Aglio olio e peperoncino taste really good here – it’s flavourful, simple and appetising.
Risotto panna piccante, which has Italian Arborio rice, sun dried tomato, mushroom and chilli peppers, is another dish that’s creamy and has a sloppy texture that will be liked by diners. One cannot leave the place without trying their luscious Paola’s tiramisu that tastes heavenly.
Italian cuisine is known for its simplicity, and even here in The Flying Spaghetti Monster, that’s one quality you will see. You may not be completely blown away with their presentation, but your palate will definitely be satisfied. The cost for two will probably come up to Rs 1,500.
