    Spaghetti Kitchen was started in 2011 by Blue Foods (Pan India Food Solutions Pvt. Ltd). What sets this restaurant apart from any other Italian restaurant is that it does not just offer the popular pizzas and pastas but also rustic and not innovative Italian fare.

    The Chef behind the Spaghetti Kitchen Kolkata

    The main chef of the restaurant is an Italian and his name is Bill Marchetti. He started working since 13 and has been working for the ITC Sheraton. He is now the face behind this restaurant. The chef believes that certain ingredients are indispensible to Italian cuisine and yet one cannot source these ingredients from abroad as the produce won’t be fresh. To tackle this problem he bought along seeds and plants of various essentials ingredients like Rucola, basil, rosemary, thyme, marjoram, Italian tomatoes and these are grown in greenhouses up North of India. Thus the chef ensures that the authenticity of the dishes is not lost because none of the ingredients are replaced or substituted as all of them are available here.

    These efforts of the chef were well rewarded when the restaurant won the “Best Italian Restaurant” award at the Times Food & Nightlife Awards 2011 and the “Best Italian Restaurant in Pune” at the 2013 Times Food Guide Awards!
