IF LONGEVITY in a challenging market is the hallmark of a successful restaurant, 56 Ristorante Italiano definitely belongs to that prized category. For starters, this Vatika Group restaurant, a favourite of award givers, has got its basics right. It has a media-shy Italian chef, Alessandro Mariani, who lets his work speak for him. Its ambience exudes romance, a feeling you'd not normally associate with the clutter and confusion of Golf Course Road, and its stained glass panels combined with a high ceiling give you the feeling that you are in a well-designed modern chapel. It is indeed a tranquil getaway on one of the busiest roads in Gurgaon, but it wouldn't have had its steady band of followers – in the offices above and in the neighbourhood – had Mariani not got his food right. From his smoked salmon bruschetta and barbecue salsa-laced chicken spiedini, to his famed broth of seasonal vegetables, to the rock lobster spaghetti (the most expensive item on the menu and also the most memorable), lamb ossobucco and chicken involtini, and of course, the drop-dead gorgeous tiramisu, Mariani makes sure no visit to the restaurant is a cause for disappointment.
While we have been visiting this restaurant in Gurgaon for many years, the last visit a few days ago was delightful. Their new Mediterranean menu is really nice and the staff as always is very courteous and helpful! One of our favourite restaurants in Gurgaon! Loved the mezze platter and paella...!
Good ambiance and excellent preparations. A treat for lovers of Italian cuisine. Slightly expensive but the experience makes it up at the end. Had a lovely evening with family. Best part was exclusivity and no-waiting even for a Saturday evening.
One of the best italian food ever had while traveling for business in India,no fuss just the food you need in a country where mostly place serve you spicy food.
It is a very good option for fine dinning at golf course road. Really a very good Italian restaurant in Gurgaon. They have authentic flavours. Many options in veg as well. Their lasagna is amazing. And lemon sorbets were the best. We liked everything that we ordered there. Good service, ambience as well as food and drinks. Would definitely recommend this place to people in Gurgaon. It is worth a visit at least once.
I had Italian food at many places and as per me the food here was nothing exceptional. The restaurant also doesn't seem to be visited by many people.

At golf course road, Gurgaon, sandwiched between the two commercial buildings lies a unique restaurant which is often invaded by neighbouring office goers. â€™56 Ristorante Italianoâ€™ is nothing but a corridor like hall with a chic glass wall entrance. Smack right in between of the two buildings this restaurant may not be glitzy or trendy but it sure is popular. What it lacks in ambience it more than makes up in food. Look of the restaurant is casual and unassuming. Row of huge palm trees run right in the centre of it. The furniture is more practical that pretty but overall the dÃ©cor is good if not great. The saving grace of the restaurant is Chef Tiziano Ranieri who with some serious skills have pulled regulars who come to taste his culinary magic religiously. The place is quite busy during lunch hour when it becomes crowded with corporates looking for a light meal on the go.
Chef Ranieri makes delicious rustic Italian food leaning more towards his southern regional recipes. These regional recipes have found a place in his menu which he makes with his whole heart. The antipasti or starters are a collection of some lovely recipes, such as, bruschetta, carpaccio, assorted seafood tempura, sautÃ©ed prawns enveloped in smoked salmon, marinated fresh sea scallops and chicken skewers. Zuppe or soups reflects seafood bisque, minestrone, cream of wild mushrooms with crouton, Tuscany style tomato puree and consommÃ© of red onions. Out of salads try Caesarâ€™s salad. It is highly recommended. The mains have pastas, risotto, oven baked zucchini and smoked cheese, spaghetti all aragosta, grilled rock lobster, oven baked sea bass, stuffed chicken breast, seared pork tenderloin, gnocchi, ravioli, tender lamb shanks braised in red wine, pan grilled fillet of red snapper and penne puttanesca.
The pizzas taste more yummy when rolled out by true Italian hands. The menu canâ€™t be complete without the crusty pizzas. Frutti di mare, margherita, pizza Napoli, focaccia vegetarian, pizza romana and pizza 56 are only some of the recipes given. For sweet dishes the chef serves tiramisu, panna cotta, tris mousse and profiteroles al cioccolato. Thoroughly affordable and only mildly expensive the 56 Ristorante is a great place for authentic Italian food with non-glitzy surroundings. Without any distractions the focus is 100% on food and nothing else. The service is friendly and attentive. Be it morning or late night drop in for Italian is for every occasion.
