Juno's Pizza | Vegetarian Pizza Pasta Dessert | Food Review | Food Photography

A pizza is a pizza is a what one ought to say about arguably the most famous fast/street/quick food in the world - a slice of pizza. But of course that is not true :D There are pizzas that are distinctly memorable and then there are those that make one want to give up eating food completely! Without getting into debate of 'gourmet vs fast food' or 'gourmand vs foodie', let's just agree that a good pizza has good crust, good quality and quantity of cheese, fresh tingling sauces and nice crunchy,flavorful toppings. Juno's is good on all these points. Excellent pizzas, good pasta, sides, desserts and even drinks, decent on pocket, excellent staff with quick service, so it basically ticks all the right boxes :)

Was here for a bloggers' table and enjoyed everything way more than expected, pushing it in a respectable position on my foodie list of where next to order my pizza from. Situated right opposite Ghatkopar East station, the ambiance is clean and bright, even though it is a small outlet but it doesn't feel cramped at all. The sparkle of greenery with wise use of constricted space brings a cheery youthful vibe.

We started off with round of drinks- cold coffee was good,could be stronger, Lemonade fantastic, star of the show however was CHILLI BERRY PITCHER with tangy-sweetness of berry beautifully cut by spicy chilly tinge at the end. Lovely.

From Tasty Sides section, both CHEESY GARLIC BREAD and GARLIC BREAD SUPREME (it has mushrooms) were fantastic, the garlic tinge could be a bit stronger but the overloaded cheese made it a favorite of everyone.

Up next was Iceberg Salad which was basically loads of veggies in sweet-ish creamy salad dressing, a good option for those who like something healthy. Show stopper however was BAKED NACHOS -cheesy, crunchy, tantalizing, definitely must-have with friends (again, don't go arguing about authentic gourmet taste, just enjoy it)

Another must-have is CREAM OF MUSHROOM soup-hot, dense, creamy, felt like grandma's warm embrace, top-notch soup to have here while waiting for pizzas.

From Pasta section, definitely go for PESTO,extremely flavorful, wholesome, almost all of us licked our plates clean with this one, also tried Arrabiata and it was decently spiced, I am not much into spicy stuff myself but it was good too, so go with your personal preferences here. Next time, I will try the lasagna here,have a feeling it will be good :)

Finally,the pizzas! Patrons can make their own by choosing crust,toppings or just choose from their bestselling combinations, we tried 4 and they were fantastic-

HOUSE SPECIAL with crunch of capsicum, loads of cheese and sauce, tinge of garlic,

FULL SMASH with Capsicum, Mushrooms, Green Chilly, Jalapeno and Olives, a wholesome combination, warm and satisfying,

THE GOTZ with Garlic, Onion, Cherry Tomatoes and Zucchini, absolutely MUST-HAVE with the burst of cheese and flavors with every bite, this one can make anyone's eyes pop out of their sockets,

BOSS'S FAVORITE with 4 Cheese and Red Paprika, literally a combination devised by the owner of the place, made special with his own grandmother's secret sauce, this one is absolutely TO-DIE-FOR, something all of us will go back for! Explosion of cheese, sweet-ish sauce, spicy kick of paprika, the combination is deadly good and it works so well. WINNER all the way.

We tried their Thin as well as Thick crusts and they were both great, I prefer thin crusts so will reorder those.

They also have HAPPIZAA, small thick crust pizzas that are pocket friendly and good enough for 1 hungry soul, both CHEESY and TOMATO CORN pizzas were really good but the simple cheesy one was more delicious with the beautiful combination of various cheeses there,

And on to desserts, we tried Home Made TIRAMISU which is good, a bit thicker than how one would expect an authentic tiramisu to be, felt more like a cheesecake actually, but tasted so soooo good that I can see myself coming here with my college friends and noshing on this (those college days..*nostalgia*)

I especially loved the CHOCOLATE BROWNIE, served warm with chocolate nuts,almond garnish and a generous dose of chocolate sauce, this will be permanently on my to-order list along with Boss's favorite pizza :D

This was my first visit to Juno's and it is just the first of mannnnnnyyyy more, it is that good and totally recommended to everyone :)
