BM Review: Pizzeria Romano

Last Saturday, over the long weekend, I visited Pizzeria Romano (the place I'd visited a week before with P and VP) to review the place for Bangalore Mirror. The review can be read here. My guests for the review were Ruth D'Souza Prabhu, husband Sudhakar Prabhu., and their almost-3 year old daughter Anoushka. Ruth, apart from free lancing as a journalist now, also runs a blog about places to eat in Bangalore, and is one of a very few who actually blogs about restaurants in Bangalore. Sudhakar is a 3-D graphics visualiser at an architecture firm. He's also a drummer with two bands, Bourbon Street and Quasar, formed during his college days in Manipal.

The story behind the Margherita pizza is pretty interesting. In 1899, Queen Marghereta visited Naples to escape the dreaded plague, and Chef Rafaelle Esposito created a pizza for the queen with tomatoes (red), Mozzarella (white), and basil (green), the colours of the Italian flag. The queen loved the pizza, and the chef named it after her, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Shitake mushroom pizza


Veggie Supreme

Spaghetti Arrabiatta, ordered for Anoushka, who wanted to eat 'noodles'. It turned out to be a little spicier than what an Arrabiatta should be - a case of being a little too liberal with the chilly flakes.
