On weekend, there is actually nothing much just other than visit shopping mall or having yam cha session with friends at favourite hang out spot. I am not a regular person in Sunway and time to times I do realise that there are a few restaurant that had opened up and one of the latest addition to Sunway Pyramid Family is this new Italian restaurant Capricciosa which is located at the entrance heading towards Sunway Lagoon and a few shops away J.Co Donuts.
Capricciosa comes from a word Caprice, which means spontaneous gathering in Little Italian eateries with lots of people with great food and companies.
One great thing about this restaurant is that the pasta’s are made fresh daily in here . .
Capricciosa is founded by award winning chef Masaaki Honda in Shibuya, Tokyo, way back from 1978 and the outlet in Sunway Pyramid is the first one in Malaysia. Capricciosa has now 134 restaurants across the world and is visited by approximately 12 million guests each year.
Pina Colada Soda @ RM7.90, Mint Shake, Fruit Punch @ RM7.90
Italian Vegetable and Meat Soup is something new to me. Creamy soup base with a hint of onion and tomato yet I am enjoying every sip of it with overall taste is just pefect. @ RM7.90 which is something I would recommended for a head start.
Rice Croquette, Sicilian Style @ RM12.90
Do you see the cheeze is oooozing, out from the crust. . . Taste is so good that usually I am not a tomato base lover when comes to Italian food but this dish had made me enjoying every bite of it. Love the aroma of the tomato base on top of it with a bit sourish and rissoto had been cook perfectly and deep fried on the crust makes it all blend well . . Recommended!~
Classic order of Italian range pizza would go for ‘Quattro Formaggi’ @ RM17.90 with a mixture of 4 types of cheeze in thin flat crust.
‘Capricciosa Pizza beef bacon, beef pepperoni, mushrooms and bell peppers’ @ RM16.90
Eggplant Gratin @ RM15.90
For eggplant lover or those who love cheeze taste, then this would be one of your favourite as it had now turn into one of my favourite with its rich taste. Recommended
Pappardelle with Porcini and Eringi Mushroom in Cream Sauce @ RM27.90
For this round, I love something simple in taste that ‘Tomato Sauce with Garlic and Peppers’ kills me off with its great taste of tomato base which is not to sourish and with nicely cook speghetti that its a bit springy and I sure do not mind to have another place of this!. RM14.90 Recommended!
‘Whole Clams in Delicate Broth’ surely had very light in taste it is definately a good option that those who love speghetti do not like tomato or creamy base pasta. @ RM14.90
This is another dish to look out for ‘Amatriciana Fettucine with Eggplant and Bacon’ @ RM24.90
The most unique dish for the night is ‘Calamari and Onions in Squid Ink Sauce’ that this is the first time I see a pasta served in total black colour. After eating the noodle in one bite do prepare that your whole mouth will look like got poisoned. It reminds me a calamari trying to escape by spraying the black colour ink. RM16.90
Homemade Tiramisu tipped with crunchy almond flakes on top and moist mascarpone cheeze and soft fluffy fingers soak in coffee is dish to end the meal for the night. @ RM16.90
Homemade Pumpkin Pie @ RM8.90
My new found love of coffee after meal which usualyl I reject but this round I have decided to give it a try which is recommended by the friendly staff ‘Affogato’ served with scoop of vanilla ice-cream, caramel drizzles, chocolate sauce top with a spray of whipped cream out to be one of their signature that very reasonably price at RM6.90. I find that the coffee is very strong in aroma and bitter in taste if you soup it out just like that, the best taste of all is you scoup everything in 1 spoon and the taste is whoolah. .. CHUN! a Recommended coffee. . .
Had a satisfying dinner and I will definately be back for more. . . . do remind that the taste here is a bit mild and find it a bit more towards authentic Italian style by restaurant Capricciosa.
