This location is located in Jalan Berangan off Jalan Nagasari it is also less than 5 minutes walk from Hotel Istana and Parkroyal Serviced Suites. I was there with 2 of my amazing friends who were craving for Italian food and also a place where... More

Good when Paolo is around; otherwise the service just doesn't happen. Food is generally fine.

We had heard that Bar Italia had some difficulties in its early days, hence a couple of bad reviews from 2009/early 2010 (but seriously, giving the restaurant a one star review because of the parking charges--which Bar Italia management has no control over?!), but we live downtown Kuala Lumpur and Bar Italia has by far become our favorite Italian restaurant...

Like the ambiance, they have an awesome wine selection. Food is good and not to crowded a place. Paulo gives good suggestions on wines so do ask. :)

They have nice desserts and very tasty wines from various regions of Italy. the owner is Italian, so he should know what he's doing. The music (on the rooftop) was a bit too loud to make a conversation over a table, and it was a bit too dark (poorly illuminated), even for a date night.

They even helped us to call a taxi in case the taxi driver might charge us more because we are tourists. The price is... More
