It was my Burffday around the corner and my friends decided to treat me makan. So have read a few review of Itaniannes before gotten here and my friend they pick this restaurant. First time at this restaurant, the feeling it gives is quite a nice Italian restaurant.

With its nice interior and open concept of Pizza kitchen looks good.

The menu is just like is. Good food which is so much and needed to be shared with every one. LOL~ which is pretty true.

With the promotion by some of the bloggers, so we decided to go for this 4 types of spaghetti
Order the drink as in the menu the picture taken in there looks good. As it is ‘Grape Shake’. Then to my suprise, it really taste good. High recommended on this drink. It is very refreshing and feels like pure grape blended and is price at RM8.50 which I think is resonable.

When you were seated down, you will be given this plate of thing which is Vinegar mix with Olive Herb Oil. The reason given to you is to eat with this.

Bread… For me I just spread the butter on the bread and dip it on the olive oil. Taste good but my friend they do not like it.

Start off our meal with ‘Marsala Soup’ which is a few types of mushroom blended together. The soup is quite thick, with milk taste and you can even bite some of the mushroom pieces. Quite a good opening. RM 12.90 for this.
Followed by this ‘Lamb Shank’. It looks good on the display, but honestly it was quite a disappointed dish. It is do not taste good or near tasteless. A lil damm bit of the herb taste, the mash potato taste weird and the lamb meat is medium done which is acceptable, while eating we were complaining and compare to what I had at Alexis is such a huge difference and it cost RM 39.90.
Followed by this ‘Bowls of Pasta’ . RM29.90
Starting off from left 1. Carbonara the most simple of all food, which I do cant really feel the taste of the creamy sauce on it. Although the sauce is thick but a bit too salty and milky taste.
2. ‘Chicken Mushroom’ which is a lil bit spicy compare to the rest and with the first bite in it, it taste nite and as the more you it, it do not taste as delicious as the first bite.
3. ‘Chicken Lasagna’. It is the best compare to those 3 dish, the skin in the lasagna was just nice, not too thick and cheezy taste is there. The mince chicken meet is nicely cook and bake along with it. The aroma of the taste is perfectly match with it.

4. Ciam Bacan Fettucini tasteless in the taste as I believe they use olive oil to cooked it and we have to add a bit salt ourself to make it a lil edible. Compare to the other 3, it was the worst.

As closing meal of the day, end with a lovely Tiramisuwhich must not miss in an Italian restaurant. When they serve it out, I told my friends that this must be the best dish for the night. It was freshly made, as I can still see the shining of the cream and about to melt. The first bite of the tiramisu is just makes my closing of the meal the most perfect. Nice fresh cream they are using, and the coffee taste of the bread and the cocoa powder makes it blend in your mouth well. I must say that, to get a nice Tiramisu, this 1 definitely in my A list. Highly recommended. It is only RM16.90 quite cheap for such a big piece.

In a nice restaurant and during weekdays, the service is sure first class. Like a wait or waitress standby, just by you looking at them, they are ready to serve you. Your meal bout to finish, they are about to help you change the plates. Only one thing is very annoying whereby 9.30pm, we did not ask for bills and they just ask us to pay directly without asking first. Total bill comes to RM118.90 which is a bit pricy for the quality of the main course that they are serving. It is like, ‘Please pay and bye bye, I want to go back soon’ Ish…really hate that. At least notify. For me, I totally BANNED this restaurant for the time being of the food quality. Maybe will try again some where in the future.

A dinner before heading to Beer Camp. So decided to come here after reading a review from Kennysia few weeks back. It was Valentine’s Day, so there were alot of people in every restaurant or every corner for couples to hunt for food. Must say that now days Valentine’s day is so commercialise. What ever it is, the pricing is crazee. Flowers, food, drinks and gifts. To me, honestly I would not spend the money on this occasion. I do not mind to be said that I am not romantic for this day only. The money spend can be used to spend on so many stuff which is more meaning full than the day it is.
I must say that, compare with the other restaurant chain they have in Pavilion and Sunway if not mistaken, this branch have quite a classy interior.
For non smokers out there, this would be the kind of place you would like to sit in, if you were to choose your seating’s, you can choose upstairs(highly recommended) and outside, good for smokers and with the candlelight on the table and dim lights certainly good for romantic dinner. Not only on Valentine’s day.

This is the bar area that they have. You can just drop by and chill at this area. Drinks price, no idea as I did not check it out.

This was under the Valentine’s set. In the morning I was criticising my colleague as those who go for Valentine’s day set is the stupid one. Guess, I was being stupid also as it was first time in my life doing so. As my friend she lazy to choose then decided to go ahead with the set. Still did not realise that I ordered the set. It comes with 2 glasses of wine. So ordered one red one white.

It start off with the starter. ‘Scallop & Oyster’. Must not complain as the plate was so big and the dish is so little. The scallop is fresh and nice along with the green green thing is something grean pea. The deep friend oyster I must say that it taste a bit weird with the dressing or some little thing that they put along when they fried and it took me a minute to finish those 2 things up.

Next, to wash your mouth a bit is the ‘Chicken & Herb Soup’. When it serve infront of us, me and my friend were so dissapointed. It feels like you go to a Chinese restaurant and give you the compliment soup to start off with. Lagi worst is the taste of it. Tasteless, so watery yet the colour already turn me of to finish the whole thing but well, still finish the whole thing as I believe in not wasting food.

After finishing the soup, there comes the main course. ‘Surf & Turf”. In the menu I thought you can choose what to eat, either each but then when it serve to me, I was so surprise that all 3 in 1. Like Nescafe 3 in 1. I cannot eat beef. Then SHIT..how? cannot waste, so talk to god and ask for discount for today only. The beef was Medium rare but then still taste okay only. tenderness and oily not juice. Regarding on the prawn it was so so only. The best among all those 3 was Chicken breast with barter garlic and butter. Have all the taste as it is mentioning.

Last and for all to close your meal with a sweet desert, tadaaa they r serving ‘Strawberry Parfait’. I pink pink thing is sweet and chocolate and strawberry is just as good as it melts. It comes to a price to pay for to get this desert as waited for around 1 hour to get it, not only this, It happens during paying bills. took 15-20 mins to come and 15-20 to get the bills and get the change back.
Overall, I was disappointed with the food quality but certainly will give chance to the ala-cart menu as I feel it is more worth it. AS the meal cost RM184 in total.

A dinner that I am looking forward for with my close friend of all. With the dinner arrangement that I have made, she thought of changing places and agreed with her. As the place I have not been before. We have the same taste and thoughts on things like food, fashion and others. That is why, this dinner is special. When I reached there, I thought that the restaurant was closed for private functions with huge black curtain covered up the whole entrance and have to try to peek in there is it available. Then just walk in and found our reservation and to my surprise, it was like a VIP seats to me. The first row in the middle directly in front of the band,stage area. I am just enjoying my moment there. As I read on the card on the table that tonight there will be a Jazz band playing in there by ‘Zailan Razak Project’. Not too fancy about jazz but definitely I go along with the flow like I am not a fan of Kenny G but a good sleeping doze.
With their nice dim lighting’s and a candle light on the table, makes it a very nice environment to celebrate a special occasion with some one special or close friend. With its nice and romantic environment, the area had change to a better lighting where after 10pm they have make the lights to the dimmest and make sure that the place you are seating is the candle light shining on the table.

This was the original booking area with the seats on the sofa, but I sure do not have complain on my current seating’s.

Here comes the food that we choose. Start of with this drink called ‘Baby Love’. A very nice drink I would recommend, with taste of oranges mix with some raspberry and it is priced at RM19

Start off with soup of the day was ‘Mushroom Soup’. A very very good mushroom soup. They blend the mushroom in there and cooked in it. The soup was not too thick or watery and was not too salty. Perfectly cook with strong taste of the mushroom. As it added some olive oil and need not add any more papper or black papper. Serve with a piece of Garlic Bread. The waiter was good in arranging it as I ordered one serving and he divided to 2 servings. The soup is price at only RM15
Started the main course with ‘Chic Escalope’. I was complaining when I saw the serving. ‘Ha…Just like dat ah’. Never mind. Try first. Please do not look down on it. The taste was absolutely good. Nice and deeply fried, and the crust of the chicken taste so nice as it is covered with garlic, herbs and you squeeze the lemon on it. Just perfectly go along with the added sour taste to bring up the flavour of the herbs and garlic. It was just perfectly cook with golden brown colour crust. Crispy on the side soft on the inside. Not bad for the pricing, RM 35
This is the second order. ‘Lamb Rack’. When it was served out, I told my friend, ‘Aiya, how to fit my stomach, so small only. Sei!!! in my thought’. With is high pricing, I believe it would have something special on it as I order it Medium Rare. Please let me tell you, when I was cutting it, I could feel the meet was juicy and soft and cut into small pieces and one for me and the other one for my friend to try also. She started first and she keep nodding her head. Means it is good. The meat is so soft and along with some of the lamb fats, it just melts with the gravy along with it. Not near to a steak but for lamb, it is just good. Served with Some pumpkins and garlic kangkung if not mistaken but I still think it is over priced. RM63

After main course, I must have desert. It is my culture. To close the meal of the day with satisfaction with the sweet,sour,salty and bitter. When to proceed to the ordering of the desert I was very disappointed as our favourite Tiramisu was sold out as it is their signature cake. Can said that one of the best I have tried so far. So ended up ordering another alternative which was choose by my friend. It is Zucotto Dome’. A great cake. With the walnut flakes and pieces with its soft sponge cake in it and covered with the fresh cream(not too strong taste of milk, perfect taste for cakes) and the end of the tip with some chocolate chip pieces. The first bite of the cake, melts in your mouth, as the fresh cream just melted and the sponge cake which is so soft makes your closing of the meals perfect. RM 11

With the cake been served, must not miss their ‘Cafe Mocha’ which I crave into. With the bitter sweet taste and sugarless, it taste the best, she cannot take without sugar so I put in two brown sugar cubes. A perfect taste for it. With the cakes and coffee. Great combo to go along. Of course with cappuccino or latte that is the best but mocha. Is just as good as ever. RM 10.
After the Jazz band started they do not served free water anymore. Purchase one and it is RM13 for 1 bottle of mineral water ‘Still’ of 500ml. ‘What the heck!’. The bottle looks unique.Did not know until paying the bills.

This was the jazz band of the night, ‘Zailan Razak Project’. One of the bass guitarist is a ex lecturer of local university around the year of 2002. Great band.

Do not say that this guy is old. He is Luiz Prakasam(hopefully I spelled correct). A great drummer I would say, as the bass guitarist mention that he had played in Europe, other parts of the world and for a great jazz band.

A special appearance of ‘Dia Fadilah‘(hopefully I spelled Correct), which I do not know who is that but she is a great live performance singer. She has a good voice.

With one of the best night ever, with a nice romantic surroundings and a great live band to look for, what can I ask for more.

~Happy Valentine’s Day~

With great staff services and live band with romantic surroundings, the total bills comes to RM190. I would say, reasonable.

I was brought by my friend to this what I called High Class Tim Sum. My first time in such dining for breakfast. Was drag up by my friend saying that bring me to a nice place for dim sum and just go loh.. Ended up here. Well, we came pretty early and the pathway to this restaurant it seems like the my house. No one is walking around, just US!! Then till the restaurant, EMPTY for the whole area. Then my friend prank me, I book the whole area ma. Don’t you know that~ In my dreams. The restaurant is very nicely renovated with classy interior and dim lights. It is so comfortable that once your ass is on the chair, it is glued with it. Would not really want to walk away. Then it was like the whole restaurant waiter and waitress are ready to serve us cuz we were the only customer that time. Wow!! what a service that they providing. The crowd starts pouring in after 12pm, I was there at 11am and alot of Datuk’s and Datin’s came here for their breakfast or what I would say Brunch….
I was the only one with camera, and all the people stare at me like a monkey with a camera what is this person trying to do. No picture please! this kind of feel.

Well, once you are seated they serve you this walnut. Taste good. *beware it is piousness Once eaten will never stop.

This is what I called Hong Kong Chee Cheong Fan’ (fried version)but here is name as ‘CCF‘ on the receipt. Do not know what the hell it means. Very very nice. The skin is crispy on the outsite and inside it is soft with steam type. The filling is with Char Siew. Highly recommended also. RM 11.50

My tim sum will always never miss a few dish, the ‘Steamed Pork Buns’ aka ‘Char Siew Pau‘. The bun is nicely steam and the filling is good. The mince meet is juicy, blacky enough and very nice char siew taste. RM 9 for this.
Must not miss No.2 Siew Mai’ The top of the siew mai is with the egg roe where you can find it in the sushi. You can just feel the pork ah,soft and not too thick the feeling. Mix with ‘Tim cheong‘ very nice. RM10

Wanted to have “loh mai kai‘ they do not serve so ended up ordering this one. ‘Glutinous Rice’ Which I never finish, only eat 3 bites cuz my friends they don eat. It is salty and aroma doesnt taste good. Maybe not my type but what I have eaten in Melb is far big difference. (Cannot compare then).RM14

Must not miss no.3 ‘Chicken Feet’. Not Happy Feet the show. It is a bit spicy, the skin of the chicken leg is alright, would not order again my next visit. Not my type of taste for this one. RM9

My friend ordered this ‘Lunar Cakes’. It is friend. For me I can manage to eat 1 whole piece. More than that please kill me. A bit sweet. Taste nice. Must be shared with more people only taste better.My most preferred for this is that my mom always did it for me, whereby steam it, then mix it with coconut. Wow, that will be so nice compare to this(my preference)RM10

They introduce the speciality of the desert here which is tadaaa‘Avocado Cream’ yucks..I hate avocado but surprisingly in this I took it. Taste nice and sweet, so smooth like eating Gelato ice-cream. Highly recommend on this desert. Will never be perfect if not desert to end with.

RM 12
The whole bills come in total of RM 116 including tea, taxes and service charge. For such a location I think it is reasonable and with their service they are providing. Would rate them 1st class.

This morning was suppose to meet up my friend. This is the first time in my life waiting for some one for so long. I was waiting for my ex colleage from 11 till 3 without notifying. Bloody Idiot!!! saying as a friend. ‘What a friend’!! till today he had dissapeared.

Another type of the O-Town food style. It had quite a nice interior for the inside as this is non smoking area and for smokers you can sit outside which I find it pretty hot. The staff here is friendly but the service here is bad.

The ‘Teh Iced’ i orederd RM3.50 Taste so so only.
A set of bread toast with kaya and ButterRM1.20(damm little, only 4 small cut peices) and 2 Omega half boil eggsRM 3.20
The price mention is based on estimation as I cant really remember the exact price but it is near.

This is my second visit to this restaurant. My friend introduce me to this place beginning of the year. Then suddenly thought of eating Dorae Korean BBQ and thought of this restaurant.

The boss and the son is very kind and friendly. One thing you must know that the staff here are alot. Really alot.

You will be given a bowl of soup to start of with. The soup is nice, filled with cabbage and taste abit like miso soup.
The garlic in olive oil is heated in the BBQ pitt.
Jason is so excited till he has to msg his friends about this.
For the starter, there are alot of variety to choose from, as what I remembered in the beginning of the year, the starter was not this choices, they have potato salad. Then I was told that they change occasionally. To keep fresh ideas so that customer don eat the same thing.
This is the ‘Ginseng Chicken Porridge’. I thought it would be very nice, strong with ginseng taste. I can say that, it is tasteless, it is not what I expected, would have some taste of Ginseng and the wine thing. This dish is totally out. Would not recommend to friends or readers.
This is the ‘Korean Pancake’. It is someting like other ordinary pancake, the taste is different. It is something simple and nicely cook. I would recommend this dish.
I remembered that they ‘Pork’ is nice. why is it nice, see the process then you will understand why. First Grilled…then…
Turn the side, so the other half can be cooked
Cheng Cheng Cheng…….It is done, nicely cooked by one of the helper..Thank you!!! The pork that they cooked out, is juicy, and with the sauce that they have marinated, is strongly preserved. So when you take one bite of it, you can feel the softness, sweetness of the marinated sauce and dip with the sauce given, is totally perfect.
This is the ‘Lamb’ my personal favourite. Cook with the marinated herbs that they have deep seasoned it.
The nicely golden brown yet not so burn lamb is ready to be eaten….. I like this alot because when you bite it, you can taste the herbs and the marinated sauce something like teriyaki sauce in your mouth. The lamb that they use is so soft, not like some satay stalls you bit it cant bite through the skin of it.
The best way to eat these BBQ is to take the cabbage they put on table, then wrap on it and eat it in. I will just taste so so so nicee….
This is the ‘Beef’. Disappointed with this 1, as the slices of the skin is a bit thick. Scared that it might be overcooked or never cooked. You know la..with the ‘bangla’ at work. Hardly communicate

This is what it had came out. Disappointed. Asking us what we want, we requested medium rare. Based on the picture and the real thing was just in front of me, I would say this looks a bit like ‘ Bak Kua‘. did not manage to finish this dish because not nice, hard, no juicy. You have to look at the meat when they cook, how you like it just take it up instead of BBQ’ing in there for too long till so dry.

This I totally do not have idea what is it call as it is the complimentary of the restaurant. Looks like chawanmushi, but does not taste like one.

Jason is like Hahahaha…we also manage to finish all the food. We really GILA… 1 thing for sure most of us will like, the service here is amazing, 2 tables for 1 waiter. So it is like lightning fast if you need anything. Standby just for you. With all the lovely dish, we do not need to cook ourselves, they are the chef, specially trained, would not say professionally.
