Can a genuine Italian restaurant work in a country where 'Italian food' means pizza and pasta? The success of Vetro shows that it can but only at the very top end of the market. The restaurant runs with the assistance of Rome's celebrated Hassler Hotel and though the Hassler's Michelin-starred, much-celebrated Imago restaurant does modern (Japanese-influenced) Italian, Vetro sticks to fine dining Italian. The pasta dishes are the sort you would find in Rome --- the pasta is the point not the sauce --- and the meat dishes are cooked to the highest standards of authenticity.
A very impressive wine cellar may alone hold attraction enough for regulars at ‘Vetro’ but to be fair it’s more than that. Not only the restaurant is authentic Italian, it is reputed and very swanky. Housed at The Oberoi, Mumbai, Vetro breaks all stereotype notions that Italian is just pizza and pasta dominant cuisine. Vetro is a genuine fine dining restaurant of the highest order where the upper crust frequent the establishment religiously. You will find the clientele primarily of well-travelled punters who have acquired taste for authentic Italian fare and can differentiate between their wines. The restaurant is run by the help of Rome’s popular Michelin star Imago and Hassler hotel which brings originality to the menu. All these credentials guarantees the sophistication that comes with it. You will be pleased to find the interiors contemporary and edgy updated with the times.
The chef like to interact with his patrons and will be glad to help you choose your preferences. The staff is well informed and very courteous. They will guide you through the menu so take their suggestions under consideration.

You will get to taste some unique pairings such as, squid ink crab fazzoletti, puttanesca ravioli, lamb fagotelli, carbonara ravioli, whole wheat porcini & taleggio ravioli and angel hair with garlic olive oil chillies parsley. The pasta dishes are cooked as you would find them in Rome. The hero is the pasta not the sauce.
