D' Italiane Kitchen, Seksyen 13, PJ

Taking a breather from my Hong Kong posts.... ( hehe, i know some of you are sick of it already :p)
Was checking my photo files and just noticed I've not posted on D' Italiane Kitchen yet. So a very belated post on this place, we were there to celebrate Mr Chardonnay's birthday a couple of months back..
We were quite early, so the restaurant was not that packed yet...

My drink, Mango Granita Was just ok, slightly on the sweet side.

Some prawn gambas(RM21.90) for appetizers.. Prawns cooked in garlic, peppers, olives, mushrooms and chilli. Again, it was fine, but I didnt like the accompanying bread at all.

The Sicilian Seafood pizza(RM26.90)..
This was marvellous. The crust was thin but crispy on the edges, the toppings were lovely, coated with pungent cheese that goes well with the fresh seafood.

Angel Hair with Scallops (RM25.90)
Pasta al-dente, cooked dry ala aglio olio. Fragrant with garlicky bits and mild hint of chilli. Scallops were seared nicely; juicy inside, slight crisp layer on the exterior.
Gosh, I cant recall the name of this pizza..was it smoked chicken?All I could remember was it was just mediocre, the Sicilian Seafood was definitely better.
The Aglio Olio Mushrooms (RM18.90)
I find this dish lacking; the penne was still a tad hard and it was not able to fully absorb the flavours of the olive oil, garlic nor mushrooms.
Risotto with crusted lamb rack
The risotto was not very smooth, the sauce was average..something was just lacking, I cant pinpoint..The lamb rack was quite a hit among my friends; it was fried, but surprising tender and juicy. The crust reminds me of KFC though.
To end the meal with a sweet note, we had Chocolate Banana with ice cream (RM16.90)..
The cake was rather compact, lined alternating banana slices and chocolate cake. You'll enjoy this if you like sticky, chewy, fudgey type of cake.
I personally preferred the Zabaglione (RM14.90)
Made with eggs, heavy cream and marsala, this was very smooth and rich, the thick cocoa dusting added a tad of bitterness to this else sweet dessert. Goes well with a cup of coffee. yums.
D' Italiane Kitchen is located at PG-01B, Ground Floor, Jaya 33, Seksyen 13, 46100, PJ. Tel : 03-7956 3684.
