Eating Love – A Slice of Italy in Bengaluru

Spread the love

Bengaluru: Recently opened in the heart of Jayanagar, Bengaluru, Eating Love is a culinary gem that transports diners to the streets of Tuscany with its authentic Neapolitan sourdough pizzas and Italian delights. Founded in 2018 by Niharika Peri, Eating Love has recently expanded to its third location, offering a cozy and inviting ambiance combined with a commitment to quality and authenticity.

Eating Love welcomes guests with a warm and rustic charm, reminiscent of traditional Italian trattorias. The interior features a striking red accent wall that adds to the cozy atmosphere. As you step inside, the air is filled with the irresistible aroma of freshly baked pizzas, creating an inviting space perfect for both casual dining and intimate evenings.

At Eating Love, the star of the show is their Neapolitan-style pizzas, crafted using slow-rising sourdough and baked to perfection in traditional brick ovens. The slow fermentation process and high-temperature baking (at 350°C) seal in the natural aroma and moisture of the flour, resulting in a soft and easily digestible crust that’s a delight to the senses. Each pizza is generously topped with premium, locally sourced ingredients, ensuring a blend of classic flavours and inventive creations that cater to diverse palates.

Must-Try Dishes

The Rocambolesco Pizza is a delightful combination of Mediterranean flavour’s that transport you to the coastal regions of Italy. The base of this pizza is the perfectly baked Neapolitan sourdough crust, known for its softness and subtle tanginess. Topped generously with sun-dried tomatoes, black olives, feta cheese, and fresh basil, each bite bursts with savoury and tangy notes. The sun-dried tomatoes add a sweet intensity, balanced by the brininess of the olives and the creamy richness of the feta cheese. The fresh basil leaves provide a herbaceous freshness that ties the flavours together. This pizza is a perfect representation of Eating Love’s commitment to quality and authenticity.

Verdure Pesto Pizza
The Verdure Pesto Pizza is a treat for pesto lovers. It features a base of the signature sourdough crust, which is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, providing the perfect foundation for the toppings. The star of this pizza is the vibrant green pesto sauce, made from fresh basil leaves, garlic, pine nuts, Parmesan cheese, and olive oil. The pesto sauce is spread generously over the crust, imparting a rich, herbaceous flavour that complements the fresh, seasonal vegetables on top. Toppings may include roasted bell peppers, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, and artichoke hearts, all sourced locally to ensure freshness and quality. The combination of the savoury pesto, sweet roasted vegetables, and tangy cheese creates a harmonious blend of flavours that is both comforting and satisfying.

Broccolini Pizza
The Broccolini Pizza is a unique and delicious option that showcases Eating Love’s creativity in pizza making. This pizza starts with the Neapolitan sourdough crust, which provides a light and airy base that contrasts beautifully with the hearty toppings. The star of this pizza is the broccolini, a hybrid vegetable that combines the sweetness of broccoli with the delicate texture of asparagus. The broccolini is lightly roasted to bring out its natural sweetness and then combined with creamy mozzarella cheese, garlic-infused olive oil, and a touch of chili flakes for a subtle kick. The result is a pizza that is both comforting and sophisticated, with flavours that complement each other perfectly.

Sourdough Rye Rolls
In addition to their outstanding pizzas, Eating Love offers a selection of artisanal bread, including their famous Sourdough Rye Rolls. These rolls are made using a combination of rye and sourdough starters, which gives them a distinctive flavour and texture. They are baked to perfection, with a crust that is crispy and a crumb that is soft and chewy. The Sourdough Rye Rolls are a perfect accompaniment to any meal, especially when paired with the delicious antipasti offerings at Eating Love.

No meal at Eating Love is complete without indulging in their exquisite desserts. From the Pistachio Raspberry Dream to the decadent Chocolate Ganache, each dessert is a masterpiece that promises to satisfy even the most discerning sweet tooth. The desserts are expertly crafted to complement the savoury offerings and provide a sweet ending to your meal.

The service at Eating Love is attentive and friendly, ensuring that every diner feels welcome and well-cared for throughout their meal.
