While there is no dearth of Italian restaurants in the food suburbs of the city, for those willing to walk the extra mile, Aloro at the Crowne Plaza offers an eclectic spread of authentic antipasti, pizzas, home-made pastas, as well as imported meats and seafood. The restaurant has a retro classic vibe, with bright floor tiles and dark wood accents. The menu is expansive and, for the uninformed, it would be wise to take recommendations when ordering. Top picks include: Salmone, a cold antipasto with carpaccio and tartar with wasabi ice cream; anguria e formaggio di capra, which is pan-seared watermelon and goat cheese with rocket pesto; carpaccio, which is paper-thin slices of raw beef, cut and pounded to a thin smooth texture (this served with delicate bits of pan-fried duck liver and garnished lightly with the Harry’s bar style dressing); risotto allo pescatora, fisherman’s style seafood risotto; salmone in camicia, which is poached salmon with saffron soup; or the pizza matta. Also try the tiramisu or gelato (chocolate, strawberry, lemon and olive oil and pistachio). In desserts, the Zuccotto and chocolate pizza come recommended.
