Favourite Pasta Platters


It’s been a hard day at work and your tummy is craving for some creamy comfort. What else can you wish for but a steaming bowl of colourful pasta, dripping with lip-smacking sauce?

Leave your calorie-counting self behind as you step into Eatalica on Sterling Road for a quick dig into a pasta platter. You immediately take a liking for this cozy restaurant while you wait for your plate of spaghetti with mushrooms or mince meat, accompanied by hot and buttery garlic bread. If you are too lazy to venture out, you can also have the fare delivered at your doorstep!

Across town, in Adyar to be precise, hidden behind the bus stand in the basement is Mr G's, an unexplored restaurant that serves quite a collection of burgers, pastas, sandwiches, milkshakes, fruit juices and pizzas. Look around to find witty cartoons decking the walls, a telly that plays your favourite movie, as you make the most of a plate of sumptuous pasta primevera presented to you. Tuscan bruschetta and pizza a la Siciliana are other scintillating items on the menu.

Satiate your appetite and lift your mood with a yummy platter of spicy and creamy pasta, coupled with hot garlic bread at Pizza Hut in Nungambakkam. Soak in the casual ambience, replete with snug seating and groovy music, as the delectable delights like pasta in tangy Arabiatta sauce or chicken Stroganoff sauce are dished out to you. Wash it down with a tall glass of iced tea and call it a day. Another cool restaurant is Bella Ciao (Nungambakkam), with its cheery atmosphere and pasta that melts in your mouth. Exotic ingredients and finest cheese are the secrets behind their delectable range of veg and non-veg pastas.

Started in Bangalore, Casa Piccola, a niche restaurant, has also opened its outlet in Chennai. Sit indoors, or be one with nature at their rooftop patio. Enjoy a hookah while you catch up with friends, relish a plate of sinful penne or farfelle cooked with herbs, and watch the sky changing colour. If the regular platters don’t excite you enough, gun for pasta with a twist right here. Informal air, easy-on-the-wallet prices, serene surrounding are what make this place popular.

Pick up your fork and twirl away.
