Francesco's Pizzeria, Lower Parel, Mumbai

A busy Saturday night, I am off to High Street Phoenix with mom & sister and we are famished. But we want to try something new and light, have been to every other place in the vicinity! Then I realize-Hey, I have been waiting to try out Francesco's for a long time & finally,here we are :) 

An elegant little place, the moment we stepped in, it was like being in a time machine, cozy and comfortable, like sitting in a quaint pizzeria in Italy :)

Long & elaborate menu with salads, sandwiches, pizzas, pasta, desserts, coffee and more. Options for everyone to enjoy as vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes are equally well represented. Prices a bit on the higher side but given the excellent experience and service, well worth it I say :) 

Oh yes, there are mirrors on the walls and this brick wall inlay is simply mesmerizing :) Also, perfect place for photographers as well as selfie lovers :)

Oh, it is not at all dark as being portrayed in this picture :P I am still getting the hang of all 'instagram' filters and this one turned out a bit darker :P In reality, it is very well lit and perfectly warm ambiance-perfect for dates actually, or even gossiping with old friends for hours on end! It has this youthful energy that is amazing to tap into :)

We had brilliant Cheese-less Wellness Pizza as well as Verdure Pizza,both excellent! Thin crust,so different and authentic, not at all what we get served in many 'pizza' places :D Toppings could be a bit more generous but overall, yumm! I never thought a pizza without cheese could be so delicious  too-it is a treat for dieters :)

The star of the evening was this brilliant delish Avocado Pesto Pasta, creamy but not at all heavy, it was flavorsome and filling, just perfect! In fact, two 8" pizzas + one pasta was enough for the light dinner that the 3 of us had in mind :)

For such delicious gourmet Italian meal experience which was perfectly complimented with excellent, prompt service, we paid just about 1000 rupees, won't even call it damage to the wallet, it was simply a pleasure :)

Finally, what better way to end the meal than with a complimentary dessert :D We were pretty full and did not want to overdo our dinner,so we did not call for any dessert and were given these little cookies complimentary. Loved every bit! I now know why Francesco's is so popular and I am going back there soon!
