If you’re looking for the best Italian food in Delhi NCR, hunt no more. Here’s a list of 3 of the best restaurants that tell you where to eat authentic Italian food in Delhi NCR.

Where to eat authentic Italian Food in Delhi NCR

1. The Pasta Bowl Company

One of my first authentic Italian experiences in Gurgaon was at The Pasta Bowl Company where I had a plate of Pasta alla Norma. I was blown away as it took me directly to Palermo! I got curious and connected with the owner, Chef Om, who is a passionate Italy lover deeply rooted to bring the culinary flavors of Italy to Gurgaon.

Entering The Pasta Bowl Company is almost like visiting Italy. Furthermore, he interiors are warm and cozy and filled with touches from the land. The classic Italian music in the background along with a map of Italy is equally noteworthy. The Pasta Bowl Company is definitely my go to place when I want to splurge and eat a fresh bowl of pasta and a glass of local wine.

Average cost of pasta is around INR 550 (€6.3)

The restaurant prides itself to be an authentic osteria and offers Italian food from different regions such as Emilia Romagna, Lazio and Sicily.

What I love and recommend:

Cannoli

Fresh gnocchi & ravioli

Tortellini puttanesca (their oldest dish)

Address: 2nd Floor, Cross Point Mall, DLF Phase IV, Sector 28, Gurgaon

2. Leo’s Artisan Pizzeria

When I think of pizza in Delhi, I think of Leo’s Pizzeria. It is hands down the most authentic pizza in the city and why shouldn’t it be when the pizzaiolo has learnt the art of pizza making from Naples!

So if you’re looking to eat a delicious and authentic Neapolitan pizza in Delhi (especially South Delhi), go to Leo’s without a doubt. What is special about Leo’s Pizzeria is that they don’t confuse you with unlimited pizza options and offer 15 of the best pizze. They are super authentic using the signature Neapolitan style of crust for their pizza.

Average cost of pizza is around INR 600 (€6.9)

Leo’s Artisan Pizza even uses a handmade mixer from Italy!

What I love and recommend:

Prosciutto di Parma con rucola

Salsiccia

Classic Margherita

Address: 28, Basant Lok, Vasant Vihar. They also have a store in Amar Colony, Lajpat Nagar.

3. Como Pizzeria & Cafe

Another authentic place to eat Italian food place in Delhi NCR is Como Pizzeria & Como. Located on 32nd Milestone, Como offers a diversity of options. If you’re living in Gurgaon and craving a good pizza, Como is a great place for an extravagant dine out.

They make authentic Neapolitan pizza and focus on offering unique combinations in the dishes. Additionally, they also offer a mix of non Italian platters. For instance, they present a range of salads, power bowls, sangrias, grilled sandwiches and desserts for their guests.

The average cost of pizza is INR 750 (€8.5)

Como Pizzeria’s exteriors are very Italian – elegant, simple and romantic.

What I love and recommend:

Asparagus Risotto

Buratta Margherita pizza

Burnt Garlic Prawns

Conclusion:

I’m currently exploring more options to eat authentic Italian food in my city. In the past decade of living here, I’ve seen a noticeable change in the way Italian food is served. I give credit to the rising standard of living and the easy travel options from Delhi to Italy. So you can imagine with more people traveling to Italy from the city, there is now also more demand to taste the real food of the country. The best part?? I’m finally loving that not everyone is fond of Indianized versions of .pasta. I hope this trend continues!
