We recently received an Invite to an Exclusive Dinner at Alba, JW Marriott, Bangalore & we were more than glad that we made it to the event because it was an awesome experience.
ALBA, is an Italian Restaurant at JW Marriott located on Grant Road, Next to UB City, Bangalore. It offers an exciting new menu designed by renowned chef Antonello Cancedda
To begin with, ALBA has a beautiful ambiance. It looks like an amphitheater & those beautiful big chandeliers makes it a perfect place for a romantic dinner.
The Chef, Antonello Cancedda himself suggested the dishes keeping in mind that we are Vegetarians. We started off with some lovely Bruschetta ( One of my favourites ) & the Burrata. I am not very big on cheese so I was a bit reluctant to try this. But this one literally blew me away. It had the freshest & the softest Mozarella Cheese I had tasted in a very long time along with some grilled tomatoes.
Next came the classic Spinach & Cheese Ravioli along with Eggplant Parmigana, It had thick slices of eggplant with melted mozarella cheese & a nice robust Tomato Sauce,
We ended our meal with my all time favorite Tiramisu which came in a nice big bowl & I polished off more than half of it in no time.
All along the course we shared stories about Food, Life, Italy & funny anecdotes with the Chef. An added advantage is that the Chef loves music & plays the Guitar very well. He does entertain the guests with his lovely music quite often, So, If you are lucky, you will also get to hear some good tunes with awesome food for company
This one will be one of my finest Italian Dining experience in a long time.
