#Ambiance Meter :
This lovely Mediterranean Bar and kitchen has a nice fine dine ambiance with a little Mediterranean feel to it. The place has an ambiance perfect for a lazy Sunday brunch or a relaxed meal with family & friends.

The place consists of two seating areas :

The inside area has beautiful geometrical seating areas which give u a feeling of sitting in a booth. The seating area is spacious and gives you good privacy.
The stunning outside area is quite relaxing and inviting (it’s the main relaxing zone here!) where they have sofa seating (with weather cane sofas) with green and white as their theme color.  It is very relaxing to sit on the outdoors beneath the sun on a beautiful sunny afternoon. The outside area is perfect for a romantic evening on a cool night in Pune.
On the insides, they have a nice bar on one side  while on the other side, you can see the racks stacked up with beautiful kitchen goodies, sauces, breads along with the desserts on display. Overall, the ambiance is made for lazy dinners and lunches!!

#Service factor :
Ayan, the manager greeted us warmly and escorted us to our table. He personally made sure we were well assisted and looked after. Even though the service is a little slow, I have no complaints about it!

#Oomph factor :
Mezzuna serves exquisite Mediterranean food. Take your pick among the ala-carte menu or the buffet spread. The ala carte menu is extensive, but if you want to just have the best of food they have, I’d say you choose the buffet option. (You have an option of making your brunch available with unlimited alcohol too…isn’t that great?!)
Our brunch started with a small tour of the place to check out the outdoors and the live counters with the respective chefs.
Coming to the food, for starters, we had the Thin-crust pizzas, Parmesan Zucchini fritters, mushroom balsamico and scarmoza grilled potatoes. The mushrooms were well-cooked and the grilled potatoes tasted good and different (we even had it for the second time). The thin crust pizzas were very well prepared.
Next, we tried the crepes which were amazing!! You can choose your own fillings and salads from the live counter.
The eggs benedict here are just yummm yummm yummm….
Coming to the main course, the pumpkin ravioli and Rissoto were filling and tasted average.
Coming to the dessert-menu (which looked mouth-watering), I loved the Tiramisu! Surprises continue with the Chocolate tart (for dark-chocolate lovers…its heavenly!) …but the cup-cakes were just average and can definitely be improved upon! Overall, a satisfying meal!

#Cost factor :
The brunch costs around 700 per person (without alcohol) and given the variety and quality of food, I would say its totally worth it!
#My Recommendation :
Try their banana-strawberry smoothie, its just awesome!! The mocktails are also very well prepared! J

#Final Verdict :
For a lazy Sunday afternoon, this place is perfect in all aspects. If you are a foodie or love trying out new food and new places, this place is a must visit!
