When the review invite came to me, it said Vicinia Cafe and Bar in South Mumbai will be bringing the experience of a European road-side cafe to town. And that was the trigger that made us happily accept the invite. Vicinia means 'neighborhood' so if you stay around Kemps corner then this could be your pet place.

Housed inside an old heritage building, Vicinia is a very good looking café. There is a facade made entirely of glass offering a meal with a view. Enter and be enveloped by the cosy, well-appointed interiors filled with artifacts from around the world. If you love lamps check out the one at the entrance.

We started our lunch with Ceases salad (Rs.180) and Truffled mushroom crostini (Rs.425). The salad was just fine and there was nothing much to talk about it. The crostini on the other hand was rich, thanks to the truffle oil. We also tried their Chicken supreme (Rs.300) and that sure did tease the taste buds with the perfect seasoning.

The menu is huge. It offers breakfast, sandwitches, burgers, pizzas, pasta and a good selection for the entrée. We were suggested, that we must try Truffled mushroom capellini (Rs.675). This by far was the best thing I had tried here.

The Braised chicken breast (Rs.425) we tried was a bit bland, but the accomplishments with it were delicious. A little more seasoning this one could have been way much better!

For the desserts we tried the gooey chocolate cake, which was not really gooey. The flavors were just perfect, but the texture made it look more like a cake.

Verdict: Vicinia Cafe and Bar is a good place to dine. Service is good. The menu is well set giving you a lot of options. Costs are also moderate considering what is being served on the plate. Visit us to get more good places to dine in Mumbai.
