Italiannies: Pasta, Pizza and Wine

I took Siew Toh to this Italian restaurant in 1 Utama's new wing for lunch yesterday. Italiannies has a very unique looking storefront. The restaurant may look small from the front but it's larger than you think.

Small place? Think again.

The waitress mumbled something about the Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar then gave us some bread for starters. To this day I have not deciphered a word she said. The bread is half eaten because I did not think to take the picture sooner :)

Stuffed mushrooms. Mushrooms ( shitake in an Italian restaurant??? ) stuffed with minced beef and herbs with tomota puree and a sprinkle of cheese plus a great deal of melted cheese as sauce. Recommended by the waitress and endorsed by wAntAn productions. Good stuff, yum yum !!!

Pepperoni pizza. Not too bad but I've had better somewhere else ( might do a review of that place sometime ). Certainly different from your standard Pizza Hut fare.

That's the way aha, aha I like it ( with lots of chilli flakes! ).

I read in The Malaysian Food Blog that Italiannies is run by the same people who operate the TGIF restaurants so service is top notch. Incidentally I also noticed that we ordered the same menu items as Bernzie, the fella from the Malaysian Food Blog.

Servings are huge ( do they even cater to single diners? ) with each dish being enough to feed 2 or 3 hungry refugees thus we only ordered the Stuff Mushrooms as an appetizer and the Pepperoni Pizza as the main course.

On the drinks side, I just wanted to mention that the apple juice we ordered was not of the freshly squeezed/juiced type. More of the Zapple type. Soft drinks are free flow though so that may be a better choice. Wine is available but I'm too cheap to drink wine.

Total bill was RM70 including a few bucks as tips for the waitress. I don't usually tip because I've already paid a service charge for the waiter's salaries but I don't feel like being looked at like a cheapo today so I caved-in.

Well, i never try the menu at one utama.But, i have tried out the menu at The Curve@mutiara damansara.

Overall, I'm not very satisfied with the food. Although, the restaurant provide a nice and cozy environment.

Friendly speaking, i rather spend the RM226.10 at the Jogoya.

The restaurant did not provide much chooses. Just wondering, why people said the food is recommended.
