I love the diversity in Wafi restaurants. They have Seville’s for Spanish to Asha’s for Indian. Adding to the list is the newest member, Marco’s Italian Kitchen.
Marco’s is named after the chef Marco Ghezzi who hails from Italy. With no fuss and frills the menu is kept simple and authentic. Ingredients are imported from Italy including vegetables.
For antipasti, we ordered burrata and zucchini chips. The burrata was fresh and the sourness of cherry tomatoes help in cutting through the rich and creamy taste of the cheese. The zucchini chips were simple and flavorful.
For Our mains, I opted for cannelloni stuffed with spinach and ricotta served in alfredo sauce. My guest opted for gnocchi. Both dishes are highly recommended for vegetarians. We also tried the pizza Napoli (vegetarian version) it was the best and most delicious pizza I have had!
Marco’s offers excellent wine selection both white and red. These are perfect to go with italian food. However I chose to try their signature cocktail, Amore Mio. This rum based drink was delicious and pink! My guest opted for the beer as he is not a wine person.
For desserts we tried the tiramisu which surprisingly was a larger portion but so light! Served with mixed berries on side. The other dessert was a chocolate torta ( Torta Barrozzi), basically a dense cake, brownie kinds that was served with berry compote and berries.
The food definitely does brighten up the day but more than that it’s the beautiful decor. Wooden tables, fresh basil and thymes pots on each table, soft lighting and the lovely view of the terrace. You can opt to dine at the terrace but since it was a windy day back then we were seated inside. The semi open kitchen looks beautiful. Suggesting this place for lunch dates as the ambiance is very relaxing and gorgeous.
