Pizza by the Bay

The current avatar of a Marine Drive stalwart that once celebrated the smoky richness of Jazz and RnB. Bang opposite the seaface with big, white-framed windows thrown open, you can take in the warm afternoon breeze with a jug of mojitos by your side, sampling simple and delicious Italian fare with the who’s who of SoBo.

Pizza Express

This chain seems to always have an outlet somewhere near you and is quick to flood your inbox with discounts and offers. But don’t let that take away from its posh gourmet charm. Classy to a fault, it gives you the full force of the authentic Italian industry, tasteful interior decorating et al, but at believable prices.

Francesco’s Pizzeria

A cosy glass-fronted outlet in Lower Parel more famous for its lasagne than its pizzas, but that doesn’t make their pizzas any less spectacular! This little joint loves to play around with funky new themes and ideas and even had an Italian chef over recently to mull over a new menu. The massive menu covers everything from desi twists to authentic hits.

India Someday recommends: The Notorious Nachos Pollo pizza. Nachos on a pizza. Yes!

Playlist Pizzeria

Great people make great pizza. Lovely staff and catchy music are the heart and soul of this no-frills outlet in the corner of nowhere that is constantly packed with diehard customers that love the place for its dedication to amazing pizza and nothing else. That said, our recommendation may catch you a little off guard!

India Someday recommends: Garlic bread. It’s almost a pizza in itself with a thin slice topped off with mounds of delicious gooey garlicky cheese.

Quattro Ristorante

A worthy offering for the vegetarians tired of putting up with sub-par Italian just to avoid meat, this quirky little corridor of a restaurant takes their mission very seriously. Beautifully starters and mocktails set the bar high for the veritable event that is the main course. A lovely spot to cuddle up in the booths with your favourite cuddle-buddy.

India Someday recommends: Mediterranean pizza.
