We checked out the newest branch of this mainstay one of the best Italian pizzeria and bar in Korba, surrounded by the antiquity of Heliopolis. Its’ new menu includes soups, appetizers, pastas, main courses and a fuller beverage list, thanks to the inclusion of alcoholic beverages. Grab a seat on the breezy terrace and enjoy the cuisine and seclusion.
We cooled off while browsing the extensive and upgraded menu by sampling the Lemon and Mint Smoothie and a Piňa Colada. We began the meal with a tomato and olive bruschetta, lightly toasted slices of baguette with garlicky pesto spread, tomato, black olives and melted cheese. Next came the Italiana Pizza, a thin pizza loaded with delicious toppings: Mozzarella, Italian sausage, onions, mushrooms and green peppers. The pizza is soft with a tender base, but you can request to leave it in the oven longer if you prefer a crispy base. The toppings were extremely generous and we could barely finish the pizza – great option for sharing along with an appetizer. We sampled one of Il Divino’s new main courses, the Beef Fillet Manzo – cooked to order. This fillet was tender and tasty, accompanied by French fries and chargrilled sautéed vegetables. You can choose between a mushroom sauce, pepper sauce, or blue cheese sauce; all are delicious and complement the meat very well. Finally, we tucked into the Seafood Linguini, a well sized portion of pasta tossed in red sauce, tender shrimp and mussels. This pasta didn’t disappoint, and we’ll be back to sample the other offerings that caught our eye.
To cap off the meal, a fresh bowl of fruits was served, as we didn’t have an inch to spare for the desserts menu, hopefully on our next visit!
Other Items that Appealed & Beverages Available
Their extensive list of pizzas all look delicious, in addition to the salad offerings. Il Divino Chicken also looks sinful – who can say no to fried chicken breast? Beverages include a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails, fresh juices, smoothies, and hot beverages.
An Italian pizzeria vibe, simple wooden thatched seating and both low and high tables. Exposed brick walls downstairs and a lovely breezy terrace upstairs near the bar. The simple furnishings set you up to be impressed by the presentation of the food. Ambience is excellent, wonderful service and low non-intrusive music on the afternoon we visited. This is a nice spot for people-watching from above and enjoying a view while tucking into great food and drinks.
