Italiannies (Pasta, Pizza & Vino) @ 1 Utama, Petaling Jaya

Sunday, December 7, 2008

If you often visit to 1 Utama, you’ll definitely pass this Italiannies restaurant at 1st Floor (Rainforest area). Italiannies is operated by the same people who brought us TGIF so you'll notice some similarities, like the friendly service and the free refill of soft drinks.
The overall environment of the restaurant was pretty impressive. It classy and warm look are suitable for both families and special occasions. Italiannies is very well decorated - very Italian, the setup in Italiannies reminded something out of The Godfather movie.

Italiannies, a rather unusual eatery which is reputable for serving large portion of food. You’ll notice on the wall and read their tagline says “So Much, So Good, So Share” …. means the food portion is HUGE … so share your food.

For starters, for every patron, Italiannies serves with a plate of freshly baked bread (Homemade Foccacia & Tuscan bread). Its complimentary bread slices were given before taking orders. It’s very tasty when the crusty bread slices, dipped into the aromatic tuscany olive oil and vinegar (so good…).
Marsala Mushroom Soup is mushroom soup with Marsala wine. Marsala is the name for a wine produced in the region surrounding the Italian city of Marsala in Sicily. The soup is loaded with mushroom flavor and with the combination of Marsala wine; it tastes quite good (but not salty at all).
Italiannies’ Pepperoni Pizza, not too bad. A 12" pepperoni pizza topped with lots cheese but a bit too little pepperoni. To be fair, it was not a bad pizza - it tastes good and it will be among the standard bearers among Malaysian pizzas.
And of course, Pasta! It is a must try in Italiannies especially the Classic Carbonara. One of Italiannies’ best sellers! The usual, fettuccine tossed in parmesan cream sauce with smoke beef bacon, turkey ham and fresh button mushrooms (Heaven!). It’s a highly recommended dish.
FYI, there will be quite a line during peak hours, so be careful and make advance booking or visit during off-peak hours.
