Say cheese with pasta
CinCin in Mumbai is presenting an all new pasta menu, featuring hearty dishes that can be paired beautifully with wines. The specialty restaurant is shining the spotlight on new flavours, unique shapes and cheese combinations to whip up a perfect feast, which would remind you of any cosy cafe back in Italy. So, why stick to the usual penne, fusilli and spaghetti in arrabbiata, pesto and Alfredo sauces, when there is a lot more to explore in the world of pastas. You can opt for a Ziti Genovese made with white wine, onion, Grana Padano cheese and tossed with a traditional Genovese-style lamb sauce. Then there is Gigli Granchio, a dainty flower-shaped pasta, combined with crab meat, cheese and truffle butter sauce. Available at CinCin, Bandra Kurla Complex, Mumbai
