One of my favourite authentic Italian food from Penang now have extended another outlet all the way to KL. Via Pre is well know for their great service and ambiance in Penang whereby their KL branch is lead by the brother. Via Pre Ristorante Italiano is operating in Bukit Damanasara. [Click here for Via Pre – Penang] . Came here a few times for special occasions.
It is located quite secluded, there is one row of shop lot in this housing area.
A place that is very simple yet at times could be quite warm.
Tried this Italian Craft beer Menabred and turns out to be good. Filled with fragrat malt barley with mild sweet ending taste. My personal thought, it would be a great pairing for pizza.
