There have been tons of hype for this Natalina Italian Kitchen in Avenue K, KL. Many have regard as one of the best Italian restaurant in KL. Visited this place early this year along with the hype and trying out a few dishes.

I was told that this restaurant is run by a classic Italian and that is why they are so well known here. It is also recommended by a few of my Italian counterparts as they rated as one of the food that very close to their home.

DSC01251Each of the table got their own freshly made bread to go off with. starting off with their special house made pesto, tomato and olive base condiments. It is actually pretty good as all 3 have pretty distinctive flavours.

lasagneWhat attracted me in the menu are these few dishes. If there is a chance I would always try to order Lasagna, Not too sure if this is in the menu as the one I see in the website I could not find this dish anymore. This is one of a lasaga that is punch with flavours. Mince meat is cook to soft perfection and serve with melted cheese, with fried leaves that gives it a nice end crips texture. Best for sharing.




franks barI have always been a big fan of Pappardelle con Guancia di Manzo @ RM 72 – broad pasta strips with wagyu beef cheeks white ragu, topped with Roman Pecorino cheese.

Certainly one of my favourite as it is hard to find nice version of this. It have to be wide and light weight and cook to al dante. This is unique as the sauce is great and even better with Pecorino cheese. Gives you a nice strong bold flavours from both tomatoish and mild bitterness of the cheese. Goes really well with the white wine I have chosen.


DSC01243Usually i would go for classics Margarita and seems why not with something elevate for the day. Just hitting on something simple Tarfuto @ RM 68 – Buffalo Mozzarella, scarmoza, mixed wild mushrooms and wild truffles. It is a simple pizza that does not goes wrong. If it is wrong, then they would not be one of the recommended Italian restaurant in KL.

Edge is burnt to perfection with crips on the side. Love the dough as it is thin crust and I believe it is sourdough?

best tiramisu in pjThis is OhMyLord! . I would have to rate this as one of the best tiramisu I come across. It is very hard to come across such texture, taste to my liking. IT IS A MUST ORDER! Classic Traditional Tiramisu @ RM 45 (contains alcohol)

It is moist and the mascarpone cream is beat to perfection. Soft and fluffy yet the base is punch with espresso and the top is with strong cocoa powder with nice bitter end. Every little bits of chocolate give you a nice bite. It is a well balance of flavour. Sweet, nice bitter end and a mild hint of alcohol punch at the end. it is PERFECTO!

Natalina Italian Kitchen

Is it the best Italian restaurant in KL? This will be down to own individual preference. I find it quite decent and certainly will be back again to try their other items. Price wise is on the high side.

It is best for you to make reservations especially for dinner. Lunch you can still try your luck for walk in

I am a big fan of Ramen. Bankara Ramen had emerge my top Ramen place in my list after found out that Menya Musashi had taken over by another company. Since then, their quality dropped and no longer as good as it used to be.
