Who doesn’t like a fresh hand tossed pizza done exactly the authentic way. It was few days back when Pondicherry-based Italian chef Antonello Giglio was in the capital giving us a taste of some really fresh hand tossed pizzas. Pizzas are Italian comfort food and when made the perfect way can be surely delicious and tempting. 

Born in Turin, Italy, his interest in Ayurveda got him to India as he settled here in 2014. But with his passion for cooking, he started an eatery and  currently runs Gastronomica in Auroville, Pondicherry which is all about fresh pizza, pasta, gelato, breads, pastries and more. His eatery gets the name from the Italian word "gastronomia" which means small stores in Italy that are known to sell fresh, high-quality, preservative/ chemical-free ready-made foods along with some packaged products. His Napoletana pizza are a hit.
