I love the smell of focaccia as soon as you enter the restaurant. The Chef Alex is amazing and very receptive.

The food is outstanding, pizzas, pasta or any Italian delicacy you name is and they have it and that too in greatest and tastiest form possible.

Coming down soon!

Thank you, Team!

We raved for a real Italian dinner - and Celini did not disappoint. The food was excellent (salads, buffalo mozzarella salad) and pizze. Also the wine list is rich and you can order - even Indian - wines by the glass.
The atmosphere was as charming as a hotel restaurant uses to be. Disapointing was the service: the antipasti we ordered did not come for at least 20 minutes (salads) even thought the restaurant was not busy, one starter got completely forgotten and they finally wanted to serve it while the pizze were already on the table. to be fair: the management tried their very best to settle the mistakes and offered us a nice dessert free of charge. That s how a disapointed customers get happy again. Thank you. we ll come again - especially for the wonderful pizze which are baked in a wood fired oven.

Wowie!Then come on this culinary experience with me.
Ambience:Sophisticated,modern but with a contemporary twist of art deco paintings,spacious yet very cosy.
Staff:So we were seated at celini.Our hand on deck supervisor chitrak greeted us very warmly & without having to remind much that we are vegetarian he knew so.Told ya!The staff here is courteous,helpful,attentive & are a guests delight who can serenade his/her meal to him/herself,that attuned the staff is at Grand Hyatt, Mumbai.
Food:Desserts:We are welcomed by a chocolate fountain & macroons oh yess!those tiny delights of wonderous joy.Some eclectic collection of in house chocolates.Some pannacotta which was a tongue teaser,to goodness of chocolate pastry.Also to tickle your taste-buds there were expresso choc tarts,lemon tarts,chocolate mousse,rasberry jelly,doughnuts,cronuts,movenpick icecreams,redvelvet cream slice,rasberry cream slice,hazelnut crunch brownie & much more.
As this was #thegrandbrunch. You have to remember all their F&b outlets 55east,chinahouse, celini,soma each one was orchestrated to showcase the best they had in their menu.
Salads:The array of salads peeping from smll tiny glasses look like art in a glass.There was smoked salmon,chicken in salad oil,chicken salad roll,salami ravioli to pesto hummus which was a winner with a unique combination with the tang of the hummus marrying into the rich flavours of pinenuts from pesto.
