Speaking at the unveiling event, Dalmia said, “I’m delighted to launch Diva in Goa and very excited with the very good response it has received. Goa has always been my favourite destination, and now I have a legit reason to come to Goa and experience its business. The support of the team is very encouraging and I would say so far so good. Our best is yet to come.”
The restaurant boasts a 64 cover and will be open throughout the season. It will offer lunch, apertivo and dinner experiences for guests with an authentic Italian menu curated for Goans keeping in mind the state’s vibrant local flavours and ingredients.
