User Reviews for Pizza Metro Pizza
Visited here again last week with a smaller group of people so we couldn't order the metre long pizza, instead we settled for the half a metre pizza, which allows us to choose two different types of pizza together. We decided to try out the pizza with okra, potatoes & chilly - the club 9 pizza. This pizza doesn't sound very tempting but the taste is great, tastes great with the three types cheese on top of it. The other pizza we ordered was the Indianpoli pizza with mozzarella, tomatoes, olives, bell peppers & chillies. Both pizzas tasted great with a crispy crust and soft pizza. With only one slice of each pizza I was full! The pizzas are very heavy! The gnocchi with olive oil, chilly, parsley & parmesan wasn't as good as it was last time. The gnoochi was a little hard compared to how it should have been. although the manager told us that gnocchi is normally hard but I wasn't convinced. We also ordered a grilled chicken breast in a chilli tomato sauce, served with potato wedges. The potato wedges were crispy but not too oily! They had a platter of desserts to choose from which the manager was showcasing to all the guests. We decided to order one of the chocolate cakes which wasn't really that noteworthy. I think the cheesecake would have been better.
Cost: NA (since I thought it isn't worth visiting, any amount is wasted)
So let me confess, I am a Zomato- junkie now and though I rarely listen to others opinion (only coz I have a slightly different palate), I try to at least check the menu before venturing into a restaurant but it worked differently with this place...On a stroll out near my place, I say Pizza Metro Pizza and was attracted by the 'look' (and of course my favorite cuisine!). I would have ordered- in the same day but was told they don't deliver...
So i came back home, Zomato- ed the place, saw some amazing reviews and set out the next day for an early dinner. Everything from the reviews and the fact that the place was packed on a Monday tells you it would be a brilliant place Well, it's not according to me and I am an Italian junkie!
While the ambiance, complete with oven, attracts you. Nothing else will. I had Silvio pizza, which while not bad, wasn't good either. I know soft- base works in certain parts on Italy (and world) but this was just soggy and floppy. However, the chilli oil and vinegar did lend a bit of zing to it and gave it a very authentic feel. The utter disappointment was the pasta- cacciatora. I would go on to say that it was worse than bottled pasta's and kind of vile. Now, am not the one to kick a big fuss but at the end, I just left the pasta and, when asked, told the server the pasta was positively vile. Even though more than half my pasta was still on the plate- the server just shrugged and said "if you told me sooner, I would have asked chef to fix it". No sir, I don't eat 'fixed food'. I paid the whole amount and left.
Maybe I would pop in to this place sometime for a few beers because its almost on my door-step and it has what few restaurants in Bombay have- luxury of space. But I would be very wary of eating here again.
Before reviewing pizza metro pizza, let me list out reasons for you to not visit it..
1. You are looking to have pizzas with your usual favorite toppings of onion, capsicum,paneer bbq chicken etc
2. You are a vegetarian and do not like aubergine which is the humble baingan
3. You are not a big fan of authentic Italian food
If you still happen to visit it..you will most probably be disappointed. Because pizza metro pizza is not just another pizzeria. It emphasizes on serving food that is very typical to Italy. This is evident from the liberal use of aubergines and ham/bacon/salame in the menu. Also they do not serve ketchup/mustard sauce with your pizza even if you ask for it but there is chilli oil and balsamic vinegar on the table.
Having said that, you can like this place if you like authentic Italian tastes and are excited about trying out uncommon combinations. Now I visited it in a big group and there was a mixed opinion about it.
Sticking to my personal opinion, I found the menu to be quite interesting. I am a non-vegetarian but I stick to chicken and seafood whereas the pizzas had more of other meats. But chicken was definitely there on the menu in form of other main-course dishes. So I decided to go with veg pizzas- the meter long one with the rest of the group and ordered a polletto alla paesana which was chicken in white wine butter and cream sauce. I wouldn't rave about it but it was well-cooked and had a good distinct taste. The pane pizza( freshly baked bread with garlic, olive oil and rosemary )ordered for starter got a thumbs up from everyone.
The parmiaga di melanzane (aubergine with tomato, parmesan and mozerella) was specially recommended and though it did not go down well with everyone, I loved it.
Lastly the meter-long pizza in which you can choose 4 different pizzas. We had asked for margherita, club 9, napoli without anchovies and the vegetariana. The pizza was thin crust but not crisp so had to be eaten carefully without spilling it over. I just loved the vegetariana with the cheese base but did not like much the margherita or napoli both of which came in a tomato base. The club 9 was surprisingly decent even though it contained bhindi about which i was initially skeptical. My advice would be to stick to cheese base and not get it converted to tomato as we had got done for one of the pizzas. Also do try the balsamic vinegar with your pizza..if you are ok with the smell of it, you will love the taste.
Finally the damages..1000 per head for a big group which can seem a bit steep for a pizzeria but then this one is different. I would even repeat to try out a few more things..you take your call.
Finally made it to pizza metro today for lunch. A great open view kitchen clean and hygienic with two two Italian chefs working away rapidly. The wood fire pizza oven is clearly visible, giving out lovely aromas.
For starters we ordered the Bruschetta - only two pieces in one portion, could have been a little more generous with the portioning. No chilly flakes, oregano or chilly oil given till asked for. Even though the portions was small the Bruschetta tasted good topped with lots of cherry tomatoes. You can tell the difference in the quality of the ingredients used here as compared to other regular Italian joints. The pizza pane - you could tell the bread was freshly baked, served hot with a hint of herbs, not just like the regular garlic bread. Then came the eggplant in tomato sauce with cheese which was again enjoyed by all. The owner (a lady) was very helpful in suggesting which dishes to order and was extremely patient. The service is a little slow but the restaurant was packed and they are running the restaurant with few but well trained staff.
For main-course there was no doubt that we were going to order the Metre long pizza, after all that is the main attraction to the restaurant. You can choose up to a combination of four different types of pizza, which was the confusing part. Finally we opted for margarita, four cheese, club 9 and one more. We also ordered the Gnocchi in tomato sauce.Before the pizza arrived they placed the pizza holder on the table, this helps to build up the anticipation
The pizza looked amazing and I hadn't seen such a tempting pizza in a very long time. The pizza was already cut into slices but could have been cut into smaller pieces further. There was abundance if cheese on the pizza, the four cheese was my ultimate favourite, with a strong taste of Gorgonzola cheese. The club 9 pizza was topped with potatoes and okra, which sounds a bit strange but tasted great. A very innovative pizza option. The pizza was completely thin base with a very crispy crust, just like how a pizza should be. You cannot only see but also taste the freshness in the food here. The gnocchi arrived a little late and by that time fee were already full with the pizza but it lived up to our expectations and passed the test.
We already had taken two cakes with us do we didn't bother to check out the dessert menu but I am sure they have a great selection of desserts.
For prices are a little of the higher side and worked to be 10 for 6 people, including 2 beers and one cocktail and 2 fresh lime, so around almost 1700/- per head. But worth a try! Would definitely be going back to try out the other pizza options.
Living around the place, we finally decide to check out PizzaMetroPizza.
It has a fine-dining ambience and they are definitely die hard fans of Prince Antonio Focas Flavio Angelo Ducas Comneno De Curtis di Bisanzio Gagliardi, aka Totò.
As soon as you get in, you are greeted by this one Madame(who, later we understood, kind of 'owns' the place), who was so warm and welcoming! She was sweet and awesome! The way she said 'ciccobomba' still remains!)
So we order the metre long pizza. Which is basically, 4 12" inch pizzas aligned side by side.
2 Pork, 1 Beef and 1 Chicken. Obviously no veg.
Cappriciosa(Ham, Salame, Black Olives), ciCCoBoMbA(Ham, Salame, Meat Balls etc), PizzaMetroPizza (Cherry Tomato and meat Balls), Murgante (Chicken), Blender's Pride, Old Monk and an Ice Tea.
They were served quicker than assumed along side oregano, chilli flakes and chilli oil (chilli sauce in olive oil I assume, I liked) a meter long madness waiting to be munched through. 16slices with 4 different flavours is what it was.
No offence to 'authenticity' but then, the pizza base was more like naan roti, with hardly any crunch. The base was so weak that we could actually roll the 'pizza' into a kaati and have. The pizzas were decently topped. The meat balls were basically beef kheema, wasn't great. The bacon was soft and soggy as well.
Cappriciosa was okay, with truck loads of olives. I happen to get a seed too though (just 1, accident). Wasn't great.
"ciCCoBoMbA" was decently better than the rest on the table.
PizzaMetroPizza : The name's so nice, you say it twice. or not. This one hardly had any meat, all cherry tomato.
Murgante was salty chicken. I actually bit a salt cube.
We were all ready to come back because of the superb hospitality, and that's when the bill came.
Rs 5500/- ! Our pizza cost around 3500/- and the ice tea cost 300 bucks! Liquor was just 200 bucks a peg.
It isn't worth the money at all. The perverted Toto posters are fun and so is the hospitality, but the pizzas, weren't great at all.
