Il Quadro Delizioso, Luxembourg City

There are some evenings in Luxembourg, when you want to go out for dinner but options are incredibly limited. You should always keep something up your sleeves: my emergency solution in this case is “Il Quadro Delizioso” in Gasperich. Apparently they are always open šŸ™‚

We ended up there on Sunday night, after checking couple of other places that were closed: even if it was already almost 10 pm and there was only one table left eating, we were nicely accommodated.

I had a pizza with fresh mozzarella, Parma ham and arugula, while my friend went for a huge dish of pasta with sea food, including half lobster.

I concluded with a lovely espresso gourmand while he had a portion of black forest cake. We had a bottle of Pinot Gris with our dinner and we were offered a digestif at the end. Our total bill was 90 euro (two dishes, two desserts, water, bottle of wine and coffee).

After the pictures of our dinner, you can fin my impressions about Il Quadro Delizioso.

What I liked about Il Quadro Delizioso:

  • Service was on top: I have to say usually Italian places lack on the service side, in this case it was amazing how well we were treated. Even if we arrived late and we stayed there well past closing time, we never felt forced to leave or to hurry up. Our waitress was always smiling and checking if we were fine.
  • Food was good: my pizza was great, crunchy, perfect topping, fair size. Above all, I have to say I appreciated the desserts (both, as I tried as well M.’s one). I am not very much into sweets, but in this case I would highly recommend you go for it.
  • Bonus point: if you are into 70s Italian music like me, this is going to be the soundtrack of your evening at Il Quadro Delizioso.

What I liked a bit less about Il Quadro Delizioso:

  • Nothing I really dislike, our evening was definitely pleasant. You should anyway consider the place is very informal and in a quiet area.

In conclusion: Il Quadro Delizioso is the perfect place for those evenings you don’t want to cook or you want to have a chat with friends without much structure around. The Italian food they prepared is very food (pizza and cakes on top of it) and the service is one of the best I have found in Luxembourg so far.

 

Indian restaurants in Luxembourg city: New Delhi, Gasperich

I was a happy girl after my husband agreed to have our wedding anniversary celebration at an Indian restaurant last Monday! After checking suggestions online and excluded places we have already been, I decided to book at New Delhi in Gasperich, that is indicated by most as the best Indian restaurant in Luxembourg.

We booked our table onlineĀ at 9.30 pm without issuesĀ and we were surprised when we got there, being a Monday evening, and finding it fully booked! The place is on the quiet side of Gasperich, be aware in the evening parking might be an issue. The location is very warm and typical, with orange table cloths, wooden decoration and Indian paintings. A pity only for the very cheap looking plastic small cloths!

We were given the menu and waited a bit before being served. I went for a chicken soup as starter, followed by Vindaloo chicken and Cheese Naan. Hubby chose Meat Samosa as starter, Mixed Grilled of the Chef and Garlic Naan. I had some water and an Indian beer while hubby had half bottle of red Italian wine (you know him, right).

I concluded with an espresso and hubby was offered a digestif.


Things I loved about New Delhi:

  • Indeed, I think this is among the best Indian restaurants I have been to in Luxembourg. The food was very tasty and authentic. I loved my chicken soup (still dreaming it!) and tried also the samosa and loved them, both naan were very crunchy and not too oily, my chicken was very well cooked as well as hubby grilled meat – I am not a fan of tandoori, but this one really deserved, above all the green marinated one!
  • Portions are fair and the prices reasonable – 14 euro for a Vindaloo chicken.
  • Service is very nice: smiling, polite. Even if we were the last clients left, we did not feel the pressure to leave.

Things I liked a bit less about New Delhi:

  • I liked everything as said and I would considering coming back again. If only I have to find something, I would have liked my Vindaloo a bit spicier – as when I ordered it was pointed out the taste is strong (I know!) and I confirmed I like my Vindaloo very spicy. Next time I would accompany it with some vegetables.

In conclusion: I really appreciated suggestions received to visit New Delhi, as it was among the best Indian food we had in Luxembourg. The location is cosy and the service extremely kind. I would definitely recommend it – book in advance as it might be packed. Perfect for girls night out, friends gathering, date night (not poshy one) and family celebrations.
