What to eat: There is actually no dearth of great pizza places in Pondi. Tanto's is definitely in the top three. Expect authentic Italian food and nothing less. All pizzas and pasta dishes are great and thankfully, there are plenty of vegetarian options. The service is super fast, despite how crowded the place always is.
1pm – Auroville's Tanto Pizzeria is the most amazing place for lunch in the city. A reclaimed-wood fire oven is used to cook almost 27 varieties of pizza. The owner is Italian, and he uses ingredients grown on the Auroville farm for all pizzas served in the pizzeria. It's open from 12.30pm to 3pm and from 6.30pm to 9.30pm. Located on the main road, near Iyyanar Koil Kullapalyam, Auroville, a lunch for two here will cost you approximately Rs. 1000. Even though they are known for their pizzas, they serve other Italian delicacies such as lasagnas, pastas and tiramisu as well.
God bless these Pizzas !!! We ordered Californian and Indian Pizzas. They were such a treat. I loved this place and the food that soothes the soul. Pastas were great too. This is on the way to Auroville and a must visit for all Pizza lovers
