We've stayed in the Sutera resort and tried therefore also Ferdinand's.
It's more upperclass and not a traditional Trattoria, so food, styling and ambience is really different.

Therefore it was a different experience as expected, but really good.
Value for money is ok, but could be better (therefore only 4 Stars).

Thank Invocation

I love Italian and I love food. We had a get together with family and friends and the food was just lovely. I like the ambience as well and the service was amazing.

We ate here late August 2012 and had a great night.

I proposed to my girlfriend and had been back and forth via email with the manager, Leslie to organise a surprise/special dessert. He was all too helpful! Nothing was a problem and they deliverd on the night.

The restaurant was very quiet that night. The setting, view etc were stunning. The food was as good as any fine dining reataurant in Sydney and Ive eaten at most of them. Portions sizes fine and very well priced.

We had three courses which would have totalled about A$100-130... a lot cheaper than here in Sydney. The champagne was expensive (as it is everywhere in Malaysia) but we didnt care on our special night.

Our waiter Masnawi made out night even more special and yes the tomato soup cooked by him at the table....devine!!

Id highly recommend dining here. Value for money great and spectatular food, service and ambience

The atmosphere is really romanticfor couples who want to have quite candlelight dinner. Food is artistically presented
