Restaurant details
Reviewed 23 September 2013

This place was started by Nitesh Save who was a chef at Celini, the Italian restaurant at Grand Hyatt, Mumbai. His experience and pedigree shows and hats off to him for opening a place like this - friendly, small, affordable and really, really focused on quality.

I've been here so many times that I don't look at the menu any longer. While I listen to Nitesh when he recommends something new, I'm usually happy to fall back on my tried and tested meal. I start with their really brilliant rustic tomato soup - heartwarmingly good, slightly chunky and full of flavour - I'm willing to bet that no canned tomato puree (most restaurants use that) was used and that the soup was made from scratch.

I sometimes order garlic bread to go with the soup, but more often I avoid the garlic bread to make room for both the Diavola pizza and the Alio Oglio pasta - this is one of the few places that I'd actually have two main courses instead of one - the calories are totally worth it.

And for dessert, their soft centred chocolate cake with the overflowing chocolate ganache. So good!

A word of advice: Let Nitesh or the waiter know your preference - based on which, they'll either customize the food to suit the Indian palate (spicier, indian ingredients, etc.) or keep the food completely Italian for those who prefer it that way.

Either ways, if you're from Thane and you love freshly cooked Italian food, don't drive all the way to South Mumbai or Bandra, just head to Stone Oven instead. You'll be glad you did!

Famous for its pizzas & pastas this little Italy of Thane is actually little in size but big in taste. Worldwide while Italian food ranks much higher in popularity than Mexican, my preference is for the latter & I ordered a Tacos & was to order Mexican Chili rice Ala de Pollo presuming pollo is Mexican for pulav but changed the order after learning from the waiter that ala de pollo means chicken wings in Spainish. In all a nice place worth trying.

They make a mean pasta. The pizza's are also good. I love the electric oven designed to look like a wood fire one. They have opened in Korum Mall I think.

From outside if u look this place might appear small. But they always say. Good things come in small packages.

All the dishes served are tasty.. Try their thin crust pizzas and lasagna. Yummy and filling...

Overall a great place..
