What to say about this restaurant? Nothing exceptional:
1/ the decor is limited to a few pictures on the wall, of artists and landscapes mainly from Italy plus some pictures of old Italian movies.
2/ the ambiance is just inexistent. The place is open to the uninteresting lower ground of the hotel, with limited separation. There is lot to be done to bring it a real Italian or Mediterranean flavor.
3/ pizzas are just average with limited amounts of toppings.
4/ no draught beer available on that day, only bottled beers (Hooegarden 25 cl bottles are too expensive), no ice-cream on menu.

I should not write about this “restaurant” because it deserves nothing. I expected I had gone somewhere else. Maybe you could avoid the mistake I did.

It offers Mediterranean food with its special chili. This is my favorite pizza place, the pizza was always cooked perfectly. Awesome cooking with olive oil from lambshank to seafood. Unfortunately it has only one beer selection from the tap but freshly squeezed juices are excellent.

I visit the Mont Kiara outlet regularly as this has become one of my favorite restaurants in Malaysia. The service is always timely, even at peak hours and all the staff are very friendly and polite. They are knowledgeable about the menu and seem to know what's inside most of the dishes and will happily recommend any food to you if you ask.

The ambience is absolutely great. The 2-storey restaurant is well decorated with plenty of free tables and an upstairs lounge area with a massive display case full of BEAUTIFUL shells. The walls are covered in pictures or posters, some of them dispaying travel, movies, food ect. They also have outdoor seating, some on the upstairs balcony and a couple of tables out in the front of the restaurant.

The food here is Italian cuisine, but I noticed a couple of Albanian dishes on the monthly specials menu. There is even a Tapas menu! Every single meal that I have ordered here has been delicious, whether it is meat, fish, salad, or pasta. The pizza here is truly Italian style as well, as the crust is very thin. The chef will even cook a dish that was on the monthly specials, but isn't anymore. My personal recommendation would be the Albanian Lamb Kofta, if you ever spot that on the specials menu.

Actually, the only downside of this restaurant is the lack of parking space, as its outside a condo complex and right next to a fast food restaurant. However, this can be avoided if you come early enough.
