Ranked among top three cuisines in the world, in any ranking -- from fun blogs to professionally evaluated lists -- there is nothing like sitting down for an authentic Italian meal and tasting the mouthwatering age-old recipes. You can do just that now at Radisson Blu Dhaka Water Garden. 

Offered as a dinner buffet, the ‘Italian Extravaganza’ began from July and will go on throughout October on every Friday at the luxury hotel. 

Live stations with a range of food from pizza to pasta to sweets will be available. Regional cuisines from Lombardy, Tuscany and Sicily will be the highlights of the dinner buffet.

For appetizers the buffet will serve beef carpaccio, Italian salami, smoked salmon, and trout and seafood terrine. These will be accompanied with olives, artichokes, pickles, paprika, grated mussels and lots of other Italian appetizers. For savory, guests will also get to taste the succulent Italian minestrone and tomato soups.
