Vir's Verdict

This is a relatively new addition to the Grand's repertoire, taking the place of Brix, its ambitious European restaurant. Though IT bills itself as an Italian restaurant (IT? Short for Italian! Get it?) it is really a pizza and pasta place. That said, the pastas are of a high quality and though the pizzas could do with a little tweaking, they are generally satisfying. The chef is Indian, which may surprise you, given the authenticity of the pastas.

Insider Tips on IT

  • When it opened, this hotel was the Grand Hyatt and the menu here may remind you of La Piazza at the Hyatt Regency. It is the same formula
  • The Sunday brunch is good value though it may make sense to charge non-drinkers a little less. But the wines are very drinkable
  • You may have difficulty finding the restaurant. It is not well signposted. So, ask

    This is an amazing place if you are looking for authentic and refined Italian food , especially something that is not limited to pizzas and pastas. if you are looking to spend for high quality food this is the place to go to. do try their rock lobster rissotto and the cheese stuffed polenta. though you might be pretty full after your meat do not forget to leave space for desserts, as they do some yummy sweet treats like the lemon tart and amaretto strawberry zuccoto.

    About IT

    ‘IT’ is the new Italian restaurant to join The Grand, Vasant Kunj, New Delhi, repertoire. IT replace the hotel’s European restaurant Brix and has quickly managed to wiggle in the hearts of gastronome. You would be amazed to know the chef of IT is Indian considering the authenticity of the pastas. The way to restaurant is not signposted so ask the staff to guide you. You would straight away notice the European influence in the décor. The dark wooden beam ceiling is lighted up with LED candles and the room itself is flanked by large picture windows. Though the dark ceiling should shrink the room it doesn’t happen. Instead the wide room is airy and somewhat beautiful to be in. Semi private dining areas can easily host your large party piling them with good food and lovely wines. IT makes a wonderful place for a romantic dinner surrounded by the exotic ambience.
