Pizzetta “The Strip”, Kuwait
Pizzetta, a new addition to the beloved strip in Kuwait city and a sister restaurant to prime and toast and burger hub with a sleek, contemporary, concrete exterior. We visited the restaurant for lunch, and walked in to a nice simple atmosphere that we enjoyed very much.
When we “Kuweat”, we look at everything; the service, the food, the plates, and even how comfortable the chair we’re sitting on is! And after many requests; get ready for a full throttle review.
We started off with bruschetta; fresh, toasted just right, and drizzled with balsamic viniger and olive oil, one of the best we’ve had in Kuwait! The Beef Carpaccio was our second choice, with goat cheese that was really nice . A deep fried mushroom ravioli was the third choice, which was nothing different than eating fried bread; the stuffing was bland, and simply too oily. Finally, the risotto dumplings were definitely something we wouldn’t recommend; it wasn’t cooked right. Even when we went again I wanted to give it another shot and it still wasn’t nice .
For the main course, we ordered the pizza, to enjoy their specialty; it was average, nothing special. We think the toppings could have been fresher or of higher quality to enhance the flavor. But the pizzetta’s tasted better than the pizza and for sure they are the same dough but maybe cuz of the size and the flavor it just better than the normal pizza Next, the two main courses were hard for us to observe and got mixed opinions on the table; the Lamb chops with Ratatouille was our chefs favourite, despite Kuwaiti’s ignorance to the ingredient. The lamb chops were cooked to perfection, tender and hand on one of the best dishes we tried, however, the portion was to small for the 7kd we paid, three lamb chops that were an equivalent of three bites! The second dish that confused me was the penne arabiatta; which is a penne pasta cooked with tomato “red” sauce, what we had was pasta in pink sauce with béchamel. It was bedazzling to see that in an Italian restaurant, even a simple pasta cant be done right. Along with the balsamic vinegar that was brought in a bowl and wasn’t available at our table. That was weird cuz it’s an Italian restaurant
We asked our waiter for their most ordered dessert; a chocolate pizza made with nutella. Lets just say this; tenoors bread from the Irani ovens topped with nutella would have been more satisfying.
Overall, it was an average experience, we however would love to go back once the restaurant has matured, and even wider range of food. We would definitely go back for the bruschetta and Carpaccio though, and we hope next time, the balsamic vinegar will be in a drizzle bottle!
Till next time Kuweaters..

B- : after more than one visit and tried more stuff in menu we decided to upgrade it – but still price vs. Quality and consistent doesnt match with that prices you can enjoy other restaurant with better food quality.
