Italiannies @ The Curve

- A short post on a quick lunch -

Last Sunday afternoon, Jason & girlfriend, Kim and I decided to have lunch before our karaoke session at Red Box@The Curve. We were spoilt for choice and ended up in Italiannies. I was pretty excited about it since I've read and heard so many good reviews on this restaurant. Since we had approximately 1 hour before our "concert", we hurriedly placed our orders.

The fresh complimentary bread was soft and went well with the typical Italiano dipping of olive oil and balsamic vinegar mixture.

First to arrive was the Seafood Cioppino (RM32.90). The mussels, prawns and calamaris were fresh and well cooked while the fettucine was al dente. On the other hand, the marinara sauce was bland. Quite generic, actually.

Meanwhile, the Salmon Pizza (RM26.90) was surprisingly good. Despite being visually uninteresting, the smoked salmon and butter cubes combination revealed an interestingly rich taste. The julliened onion pieces provided a crunchy texture and a burst of freshness to the pizza. Simple and nice.

I have yet to try other specialties such as Spaghetti With Meatballs (Jason and Kim do not take beef), the Angel Hair Pasta, etc. A second visit is required before I can really comment on this eatery. Afterall, the people's choice can't be wrong.

(By the way, this restaurant was featured in one of those "Visit Malaysia 2007" TV advertisments in Singapore a few months back.)

I was there at this place last year when I was down in KL. Interesting place, I had thought that they were really Italian before I ate there. The Curve is a pretty nice place, would probably like to visit it again when I next visit KL.

Hi! Thanks for stopping by! There are lots of eateries at the Curve. If you are coming down to KL, do check out Bangsar Village too. There are clusters of interesting cafes. Great place for good food.
