User Reviews for Fire and Ice
Went with my "Italian food crazy" children. Normally picky eaters they enjoyed the Carbonara and Lasagna. Even the desserts were good. We had caramel custard and Apple pie. While the restaurant was not that crowded I was not very impressed with the service. Quite indifferent with really no initiative to service. But since I got what I wanted and it tasted good I don't penalise them for the poor service.
The best pizzas in town. In India, where you usually have places serving Indianised versions of pizzas - both good and bad, this is a place which could give any pizza place any where in the world a run for it's money.
There nothing quite as warming as good Italian food and good pizzas are some where on top of the Italian food mountain. Fire and Ice produces great pizzas, not just good ones. Subtle, delicate flavors, great cheese.
The interiors are excellent too. It is the right balance of chilled out and fine dining.
This is one of the places which are a must stop in the Kolkata food map.
As you see a painting of city taxis at one end, and a poster of Fellini's 'La Dolce Vita' you feel wonderful. Anita Ekberg could do a little dance of joy here and it wouldn't be out of place.
First off, I am reviewing only the vegetarian food.
I have been to fire and ice about 5 times in the last 2-3 years. It started off as a decent restaurant with good food. On my last few visits however, it is very evident that the quality has diminished.
It is a popular place for Italian food and I always have some expectations going in. But its always a let down.
The ambiance is decent, spacious and cafe-like. The seating doesn't justify the price - not comfortable (read - wooden chair bottoms) for a restaurant so priced.
There are literally NO appetizers (menu shows 10, all are basically bruschettas/garlic breads). The vegetable with melted cheese was rubbish.
The pesto pastas and mushroom risotto lacked flavor, were overcooked and soggy. The Funghi pizza was about the only thing that was average.
Overall, a place with popularity, but no substance, not sure why it is rated so high.
Fire & Ice is one of the best Italian restaurants in the city. Located in Middleton row, the place is very spacious, comfortable and serves a good, long menu. The service is warm but may be a bit slow at times.
I love the thin crust pizzas it offers especially the fire and ice pizza. The italian preparations are very authentic and amazing. The risotto they serve is too good. The restaurant is priced on the higher side but its worth every dime spent in there. Deserts include several crepe preparations. I just love their crepes and the one that i would recommend every visitor is the Banana and nutella crepe that is heavenly.
1) Spacious, comfortable
2) Delicious and authentic pizzas, italian food
3) Amazing crepes
4) One of the best italian joints in town
1) Bit heavy on your pockets
Please follow me to read my other reviews.
Being a debut visit to the place, must say that the place serves pure Italian food in the city (with no Indian Taste in the food)
Located in the heart of city, please do make reservation before coming here since the place is full.
Food: The food is quite authentic Italian where the thin crust pizza are to die for.. We ordered Garlic Cheese bread where it serves 8 pieces (pizza size), Whole wheat thin crust pizza (jalapeno) and one spaghetti.. The taste was pure Italian and they do not have any other topping for your pizza (Since we were vegetarian)
Price: It's a bit pricey but paying for good food this should not be considered.
Service: The service was quick while serving food but overall it was little delay while asking for suggestion for order, water etc...
Do visit this place for sure...
