Pietro Ristorante Italiano, Damansara Heights
What a year 2011 has been! And in a blink of an eye, we are in 2012 now!
Fantastic how time flies without us noticing it....
Well, I had a good wrap up year end, spending good time and fine meal with a group of entertaining friends..hehe
Mr Chardonnay arranged for us to meet at Pietro, a restaurant the opened its doors not too long ago, to try out it's italian fare.
We read some mixed reviews on this place, but decided to try nonetheless, who knows, we might just like it..
Started off our meal with some Warm Asparagus salad (RM30)
Though this looks simple but it was delish- the warm, young asparagus and the lightly melted shaved parmesan was a great pairing.
The Caprese Salad (RM28) was a more popular dish among my friends..
Fresh, sweet tomatoes neatly arranged with thick cuts of bufallo mozarella, a sprinkling of chopped basil and kalamata olives. A good combination that I cant complain.
The Salmone Pasta (RM32) did not take that long to reach..
Creamy al-dente pasta with generous amount of smoke salmon and a dollop of lumpfish caviar. This was scrumptious, I was glad the sauce was not too thick and enveloped the fettucine perfectly.
The D'antara Pasta (RM33) was not so popular..
Though the penne was cooked al-dente, the sauce was a mixed of tomatoes yet sligthly sweetish, which some find it a mismatch with the slightly salty smoked duck breast slices.
The Lamb Shank (Rm52)This had a better reception..hahaha..the lambshank was fork tender, served with creamy mash and sides of carrots and cucumbers. It was a decent dish.
But the Quattro Formaggio pizza (RM32) got my crown for deliciousness for that night..
The cheeses was so aromatic (or some may call it pungent :p) that i was salivating just by smelling it. And yes, it did not disappoint at all. The crust was thin, crisp at the edges and the cheese! oh need i say more...the mildly burnt top, the great melting flavours of 4 cheeses (parmesan, mozzarela and i cant recall the other 2 :p) was simply divine!
And the restaurant was sweet to prepare something for my BD..tee heeYummy, fudgy chocolate brownie. Thanks Pietro..
We wanted to have other desserts, hence the classic Tiramisu (RM20)
I was glad that it's not too sweet, this dessert was satisfying with the cream cheese and the slight kick from coffee liquer.
Chardonnay loves the Panna Cotta (RM16)..
Smooth, velvety, melt in mouth..
Overall I had a great time dining there, a wonderful was to end 2011 :)
