Amici Cafe-Defence Colony
Hello and welcome to a brand new session of A to Z Challenge 2019. This year I am going to take you on a coffee date to 26 different places. Each located in or around Delhi. Most of them have been personally experienced and the rest are on my wishlist that will be fulfilled soon. Starting from the first letter ‘A’, I invite you to Amici Cafe. I have been to Amici Cafe, Hauz Khaz which is now officially closed. But never mind we will explore another Amici Cafe today at Defence Colony. There are so many new cafes all around the world that you will never come back to the same one again. I have also been to Amici Cafe at Select Citywalk, Saket which has also shifted.
Fr Gianluigi Colombo, a Salesian Italian priest in charge of overseeing the operations of the Don Bosco Printing Press, was given permission by Don Bosco management to set up a “canteen” to support its employees, thus giving birth to Amici di Don Bosco (Friends of Don Bosco).
Starting with Italian coffee and gelato, the canteen eventually introduced wood-fire oven baked pizzas and homemade pasta. Fr Colombo’s kitchen eventually became a taste of heaven where tired and weary “souls” found comfort. From humble beginnings, Amici di Don Bosco became well known for authentic Italian pizza, pasta, and gelato.
How to reach there

The price you pay
It is Rs 1200 for two persons. This is a place for family as well. Your kids will also enjoy the food and ambience. One trick to make kids happy is to carry their favourite puzzle along that keeps them busy until the food comes on the table. You can check more reviews and book a table here
