When: 12:30pm to 10pm
Where: 562, 8th Main, 4th Block, Koramangala 4th Block
Lowdown: This lovely little place serves some of the best pizza in the locality. If you're not into pizza, they also serve other Italian treats such as lasagna and some delectable desserts. If you're lucky, you'll find a band playing live music too.
