Want to have a lazy dinner/ lunch? Pasta bar is the place to be!!!! I have frequented PBV at T.Nagar for more than a year. Whenever I want to catch up with friends, have long conversations, relax and not burn a hole in my pocket, the Pasta bar Veneto is my first choice. The place is mostly quiet, gives you and your group your privacy. The service staff are courteous. Yesterday, me and my friends weren't very hungry but wanted to catch up after a long time. So we decided to hang out at Pasta bar. I ordered their Funghi pasta and my friend had the Primavera al Panna. I chose farfalle and my friend went with fusili. One other thing I like about PBV is, the choices it offers, on the type of pasta. That way I am not forced to have penne all the time :) The Primavera al Panna, the fusili was cooked well. However the pasta lacked little salt and there could have been more veggies. Once we added salt, it tasted decent. Funghi was absolutely delicious. Right amount of cream and olive oil mixed very well. Good helping of mushrooms. The chef was friendly. He inquired about the food and took the feedback well. Just the two pastas cost us 693 bucks. Had a good chat, so time and again pasta bar proves to be a great place to catch up with people. In my previous visits, I liked the below dishes. 1. Mozarella Ricotta Fingers - yumm 2. Aglio e Olio (sphagetti) - very delicious 3. Primavera Mediterrane 4. Cream of mushroom soup Improvements: 1. Pizzas definitely need improvement. 2. Cheese Jalapenos - tastes like the readily available frozen fried items. 3. We can't always have pastas. So menu could be improved to include variety in Italian. Food - 3/5 Service - 3.5/5 Ambiance - 3.5/5 VFM - 3/5
Had a great dinner last night the t- Nagar pasta bar veneto restaurant. I am visiting family in chennai from sydney and finally got a chance to get my parents and cousins together for a dinner on sunday night. The food was very authentic italian and great value for money. I eat a lot of italian in sydney as there is a big first and second generation italian community in sydney and this place was up there with the best of them. Had a spaghetti aioli spinach and chicken which was delicious. Perfect drizzle of chilli oil blended and fried through and tossed with the spinach. The italian chicken wings we great as was were the bruschetta appetisers- mushroom and chicken. Great veg dishes as well. My parents had the diablo veg pizzas and they had loads of vegies which is the way they like it. The service was great and the food was provided promptly and warm as we were a pretty hungry bunch.
Have been a Pasta Bar' loyalist since they started and haven't been dissapointed as far as the food is concerned. Yes, the parking gets a bit crowded and the restaurant is packed on most weekends, so we always reserve in advance to save the hassle. The food is truly of outstanding quality, their raviolis, spaghetti bolognese & arabiatta is to die for. My children love their barbeque pizzas and chicken wings and almost always settle for these. The grills and bakes are nice too but what takes the cake (quite literally) is their cheese cake and mud pie. Love this neat Italian cafe. These guys are actually my saviors in Chennai.
This place has an nice Ambiance and nice tasty food, as few reviewers pointed out the service people to be bit more attentive and don't stick to the computer all always.Also An Italian food is not complete without an Wine I would recommend to start serving Wine too.
