Oh yes, Luis Suarez’s love for Italian is so evident after that bite last night. While no defender in football’s history, leave alone Giorgio Chiellini, could have stopped Suarez from taking a mouthful on the field, here’s something from Italy that might have made Suarez a little less of a biting machine!

Here’s a list of the best Italian restaurants in India. Suarez might find this list handy the next time he craves some Italian (food)!

1. Tonino, New Delhi

One look at Tonino’s Italian menu and Suarez would have thought twice before biting into Chiellini. Apart from a fantastic range of salads, Tonino serves up fabulous exotic dishes like parma ham with sweet melon, pesto marinated chicken, lasagna and, of course, fiery wood-fired pizzas.

2. Zerruco By Zilli, New Delhi

If Suarez and Chiellini decided to dine together in Delhi as a gesture of making peace, Zerruco would definitely be their first pick. From the sumptuous Wild Mushrooms and Truffle Risotto for the wild Suarez to some gorgeous beans and baby pasta for the calmer Chiellini, the two would find an amazing range of dishes to bond over.

3. The Big Chill Cafe, New Delhi

This chilled out food joint would be the perfect place for the biter as well as the bitten to indulge their sweet tooth. The Big Chill Cafe serves up some amazing Italian fare but their very authentic tiramisu is absolutely divine.

4. Celini, Mumbai

Given that Suarez tends to get very, very hungry during a game, the Grand Hyatt’s Celini would be the perfect place to grab a post-match meal. The scrumptious Italian pizzas that are absolutely loaded with cheese and the Lasagnette Genose would leave him feeling very happy and full.

5. Olive Bar and Kitchen, Mumbai

The name says it all. This would be a great place for Suarez to wave the olive branch and make peace with Chiellini over a lovely meal. Roasted Pumpkin and Green Beans, Roasted Fig, Basil, Walnut and Asparagus Pizzas make for a very eclectic menu at Mumbai’s premier Italian restaurant. Olive Bar and Kitchen is most definitely one of the best Italian restaurants in India.

6. Polka Dots, Pune

Polka Dots might be just the place for Suarez. Biting into their delicious bruschettas and mozzarella fingers would make him forget all about biting into his opponents.

7. Terttulia, Pune

In Pune and craving Italian like Suarez? Terttulia is the place for you. The red wine glazed lamb ragout, rosemary baby potatoes and lemon coriander chicken broth are absolutely delicious.

8. Jimmy’s Italian, Mcleodganj

One thing is assured--not even Suarez will feel like fighting/biting once he lands in the Indian Himalayas. But, just in case he suddenly feels like a bite of Italian (not necessarily Chiellini), there is Jimmy’s Italian Kitchen at Mcleodganj. Even the very famous Angry Chicken Pizza from Jimmy’s won’t make him fight again. Bite? That he will. For Jimmy’s has world’s best waffles too!

9. Toscano, Bangalore

Some Italian fine dining at Toscano might induce Suarez to behave in a more gentlemanly fashion. Bangalore’s best Italian joint, Toscano, has some amazing salads, delightful hand tossed pizza bread, thin crust pizzas, pastas and a lot more.

10. Little Italy - Kolkata

If Suarez ever decides to try out vegetarian Italian fare for a refreshing change, he should head to Kolkata’s most loved Italian food hub-- Little Italy. Their soups, salads, starters, pastas, desserts are very Italian and very delicious.

Dear Suarez,
You are free to bite into as many Italian delights as you want. But please spare Chiellini. We’ll send you another list of the best Italian restaurants in India soon.

Till then, do not bite.
