Malaysians are well acquainted with the Italianies. They are regarded as the place for good quality and defined Italian classics. Launching its brand new menu at the Italiannies in The Gardens, we are celebrating both small plates and mains with comfy and cozy vibes from the rustic amber-lit setting. With plenty of date night potential in such environs and taste that warrants dining satisfaction, we begin with Bruschetta where homemade Tuscan bread is topped with truffle, chickpea puree, and sautéed mushrooms.
Buoyed by the success of the toast, we move to The spinach and Artichoke Formaggio (RM 33.70). This spinach, artichoke and mushrooms in a creamy blend of fresh cheeses, topped with sun – dried tomatoes for the tang and served with toasted garlic bread is an obvious triumph packed with flavours. At the same time I also loved our Classic Caesar, the Italian style with toasted focaccia croutons. The fresh crunchy leafs are stacked right to the brim so once again, this one is the largest serving and is perfect for communal eating.
Then it’s our main’s turn to shine. Classic favourites such as Spaghetti & Meatballs and Fettuccine Carbonara remain in the pasta section but my all time favorite is the Angel Hair Arrabbiata (RM 23.30). You get whole peeled red tomatoes sautéed with garlic in a light tomato and basil sauce; this is the simple comfort that’s rewarding with such quality ingredients. Rooting the Italian tradition in these pasta dishes, pasta lovers can treat the palate with that classic Italian flavours.
Don’t forget the perfect Rack of Lamb that’s great for a special relaxing indulgence, and is, a looker, consisting tasty mash beneath those handsome racks. The flavours worked beautifully. And taking pride in their consistent texture and handmade and proofed daily, every pizza is prepared to order and made to perfect rustic brown with extravagant and clever creations. Look out for is the Carbonara Pizza for those who enjoy something more savoury-creamy—a white sauce base topped with smoked duck bacon, Pecorino, Mozzarella cheese and an egg. And for those who go big on their pizza orders, take note that the crowd-favourite 16-inch Enorme is still available on the new menu.
And a little something for that sharing treat, there is chicken and seafood dishes that is superb for communal dining.
