About The Restaurant
Vetro, in association with Hassler Hotel, Rome, is located at the lobby level of The Oberoi, Mumbai. The restaurant owes its name to the extensive use of glass in the design and interiors of the restaurant. Vetro, which means Ã¢â‚¬ËœglassÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ in Italian, captures the sunlight in different hues, changing the mood of the restaurant at different times of the day. The lounge and restaurant is designed to reflect the sophisticated and cosmopolitan flavour of contemporary Italian lifestyle. The ambience exudes elegance with the use of natural Ã¢â‚¬Ëœcrema marfilÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ marble flooring, lacquered panels and flattering lighting. Guests enter into a comfortable lounge, a perfect place for a pre or post-meal drink. The lounge naturally flows from the restaurantÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s main entrance into the dining area with the Enoteca, or wine library, dominating the space.
VetroÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Enoteca continues to be very popular with guests, and is one of the only dedicated wine libraries in the city. Guests entering the glass-enclosed wine library will appreciate the floor-to-ceiling displays of wine, and a special table for wine and cheese tasting. Here, diners may sample a selection of four white and four red wines before deciding on the perfect bottle to accompany their meal. A cheese fromagier houses a range of cheeses, imported from different regions of Italy. The EnotecaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 800-plus bottles of the finest wines include one of the largest offerings of Italian wines in the country Ã¢â‚¬â€œ with selections from Fruili, Piedmont, Toscana and Venetto. Vetro also offers a range of Ã¢â‚¬Å“Super TuscansÃ¢â‚¬Â, often referred to as the best wines from Toscana.
The restaurantÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s kitchen blends with the overall ambience, with a large picture window through which diners can view the culinary skills of the team. A ChefÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Table adjacent to the kitchen also benefits from this view. The Table can accommodate up to eight guests and is a perfect location for a memorable meal, created exclusively for them by Chef Vincenzo di Tuoro and his team.
For lunch, the menu at Vetro focuses on light and delicate food for the power-lunching Corporate guest and also provides the perfect setting for social afternoons. The menu includes a range of salads and soups, as well as a variety of items from the antipasti counter. Guests at dinner can choose from a wide selection of Italian classics, such as hearty soups, home-made pastas, risotto, seafood and meats, complemented by truffle essence, saffron, and other distinctive flavours. Those with a sweet tooth will delight in the home-made ice-cream, frozen yogurts and fresh biscotti, as well as other decadent Italian dolce. A selection of regional Italian cheeses completes the meal.
