JUNO’S ka naya Avatar
Place – Juno’s Pizza
Location – Borivali West , Mumbai
15th September 2017
8 years back a Grandma wanted people to enjoy good Indianized Pizzas and that’s when Juno’s started. It has been people’s favourite and that’s why they have 8 outlets now!
A revamped Juno’s that will definitely make you want to sit back and enjoy your pizza ( It used to be a really tiny place with no/ hardly any seating )
Earlier what was restricted to Pizzas, now has proper 5 course meal option that include Soups and Salads , Appetizers , Pizza , Pasta and Desserts
You can even go for a 20 inch rectangular pizza if it’s a big group and call for half and half or even quarter of different pizzas
Its Pure Veg
What To Eat – Cream of Mushroom Soup, Garlic Bread , Greenzilla
What To Drink – Strawberry and Banana Shake , Oreo Shake , Chilli Mojito
Ambiance : A tiny place that accommodates 10-12 people inside and outside respectively. Flowery cute décor and classic music tracks make it a pleasant place.
About 8 of us bloggers were invited to Newly opened Juno’s Pizza in Borivali. People may wonder why newly opened as it has always been there. So, they have completely revamped the existing place making it brand new!
Older one was a Red and Yellow themed slightly cramped place where people preferred to only order in and not sit and eat. They have completely changed the Ambiance, Seating , Logo , Menu and about everything ! It’s now Green , More Vibrant , Cozy and has got everything covered as far as a Pizza place is concerned.
We started our review with Milkshakes as we were waiting for the fellow foodies to come. Banana and Strawberry Shake is so so good here! it’s a little heavy but surely recommended. So is Oreo Shake. Its got right amount of sweetness.
After this we had Cream of Mushroom Soup which was thick and very creamy however the Pesto Soup lacked right amount of salt. After adding salt is was better. One more thing it lacked was some sort of bread component of bread-stick or crouton et al. Soup portion is huge and what you see in picture is half the size of their usual serving portion.
We were also served this crunchy fresh Salad.
Then came three types of Garlic Breads – 1. Supreme Garlic Bread which had mushrooms, Regular Cheese Garlic Bread and a 5 Cheese Garlic Bread. All were super fluffy and soft. Cheese used was liquid cheese which worked for some of us whereas others didn’t like it much. I quite liked it.
From the pizza Section our tasting menu offered us a 20 Inch Pizza with half and half of Fiame and Full Smash.
Fiam Pizza had loads of toppings such as olives , Jalapenos , Onions , Peppers and Chillies. Chillies made it extra spicy but it was good.
Full Smash had loads of cheese, sliced onions and chilli flakes.
Both Pizzas were very very thin hence weren’t too heavy.
But we were quite impressed with Greenzilla – a Pesto based pizza which was thick base but very light and had a lot of healthy green toppings.
Something to brighten up your gloomy Mumbai afternoon 🙂 This one's a Greenzilla – a pesto pizza with loads of broccoli,cherry tomatoes, peppers and cheese. Best thing about it is the base which is super light !! . . thetalkingbeewordpress.wordpress.com #thetalkingbee #junos #pizza #yumm #mumbaifoodie #foodofmumbai #thingstodomumbai #mumbaikar #foodgram #foodphotography #mobilephotography #yumm #nomnom #trelltale #trellingfood #foodgameindia #like4follow #like4like #pictureoftheday #indianfoodbloggers #f52grams #munbaifoodbloggers #foodporn #trelltalemumbai #instagood #instafood #feedfeed

Then came two variants of pastas. Penne in Arabiata Sauce – which again was in a very home-style preparation. Very subtle. Right amount of cheese and veggies. The other was Fuselli in Mushroom sauce – A creamy pasta.
To finish the meal we were given Tiramisu minus any liquor and a brownie. Tiramisu was spot on however Brownie was slightly dry.
In a nutshell, the new Juno’s is a pleasant surprise from its ambiance to food and even the service. Surely recommended ! Also , the owner, Aditya is a really humble gentleman who made sure we had a really good experience.
Taste – 4 /5
Ambiance – 4 /5 ( for such a tiny place they’ve done a good job )
Service – 4 /5
Value for money – 4.5 / 5
