La Scala, Jalan Mayang KL

Named after Milan’s famed opera house, La Scala is every inch as grand and impressive as that iconic building in Italy. And the location should be no stranger to most KL-lites, as La Scala is situated where the old Il Lido used to be, right along Jalan Mayang, off Yap Kwan Seng in KL. Stepping […]

Prego @ The Westin KL

Accessible, unadorned, carefully rusticated Italian cooking is what we look forward to, and love the best about Prego. And when it comes to restaurants that serve good Italian food in KL, Prego, which means “welcome” in Italian, ranks high in our books. The quality and care that goes into the preparation of its menu, surfaces […]

Verona Trattoria has in its repertoire the casual home cooking style that might be called bistros or diners […]

Spasso Milano at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur

We settle down to dinner at the spanking new Spasso Milano at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, and as we chat and enjoy the wine, the waiter places in front of my plate, an almost lethally large portion of Risotto Alla Milanese served as the classic Risotto and dressed generously with a fragrant aroma of Saffron. I […]

il Lido

Jalan Mayang, 55000 Kuala Lumpur, Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Singapore’s polished Italian restaurant, il Lido, which has been doing a brisk business since it opened in June 2010, in the Yap Kwan Seng neighbourhood, feels like a very familiar kind of place. And it should. We have been coming here regularly for close to a year now and the place still looks as swanky […]

Garibaldi

Bangsar Village Shopping Centre, Bangsar Baru, 59100 Kuala Lumpur, Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

We Heart Garibaldi! No, not Garibaldi the Italian military and political figure, but Garibaldi the restaurant. Kuala Lumpur’s march toward more elegant Italian restaurants continues at Garibaldi, a warm, trendy restaurant in Bangsar Village. Ah, but there are signs of potential greatness here. The pastas are incredibly fresh and of the highest quality; homemade spaghetti, […]
