Italiannies New Promo Menu

I remember the first time I dined at Italiannies was with Timothy, when Nuffnang just started and they were giving out attractive lucky draws and I won a PSP! Ahh.. those were the days when free gifts are easy to come by.

We met in Italiannies in The Curve and I had a very delicious strawberry cheesecake which I self claimed to be the best commercialized cheesecake in town.

I even talked about it in my first feature in the starmetro.


So last week I have the privilege to try out their new promo menu.

When I first saw the menu, my first reaction was: “Finally, our prayers have been answered.”

Seriously. I have always loved Italiannies, I’ve lost count the number of times I dined here with friends, alone, meeting up, etc.

bread and olive oil
I love Italian cuisine because they always serve you delicious bread with my favorite olive and balsamic vinegar combination


But the one thing about many restaurants nowadays is that their portions are always too big. Being a girl, I like try a bit of everything, and it is always so difficult to order alone (especially when I travel solo) or with a friend.

You order one dish, and you only get to try ONE dish, and pay for that ONE dish which might get you so many varieties in Chap Fan (mixed rice).

So with the Italiannies new promo, you get to eat/sample/taste FOUR types of pasta for RM29.90.

With ten selections to savor, I brought my mom and aunt along to dine with me for lunch that day.

Candid shot is the best. Haha. See Aunt Sally chewing. *point right*


I especially love chilled pasta, so I enjoyed the first set tremendously.

And I love the Chicken Coronation and Salmon & Lemon Aioli, it was even better when they prepare this with shell pasta, I simply dislike boring shaped spaghetti. (hey, they did want an honest opinion) *shrug*

We then moved onto the next four.

From top right clockwise: Shrimp Linguine, Chili Shrimp, Clams and Beef Bacon, Chicken and Mushroom


My mom enjoyed this more than I did (as I said, I love love love cold pasta), but I do find the Clams and Beef Bacon a lovely palate with a glass of House Premium White.

It could also be because it’s served with fettuccine and I’ve always taken a bias stand on anything creamy (which takes tomato based pasta out of the topic).

HENCE! My favorite of all, still has to be the lovely Classic Carbonara which I so devotedly adore.

And the chicken lasagna was superb too. (I love cheese, sue me)

My mom, aunt and I all agree that chicken lasagna was a crowd fav.


At this rate, we were pretty stuffed but then being the greedy us, we didn’t stop there.

The salad was yummy! Who doesn’t like Caesar salad?! But pair it with calamari is just so sinful to the max! YUM!

stuffed mushroom
Stuffed Mushroom


And I found the stuffed mushroom rather delectable. I didn’t know I would like something as plain as mushroom for a dish. Usually I prefer shitake mushroom but these were little lovelies, if I weren’t so full already I would have eaten more than just one.

And FINALLY!!! (yea we’re not done yet, omg, we’re so greedy)

My very love!

It’s really more like cheesecake with strawberry sauce, which I think it’s SUCH A LOVELY combination. I much prefer it this way than the strawberry in-flavored (is there such a word?) with the cake. This way you get to control how sweet or how strawberry-y you want your cheesecake to be.

We also had the Raisin and Bread pudding which my aunt couldn’t resist taking a doggy bag with at the end.

One advise, never eat the cheesecake before the bread pudding as it can overpowering for the subtle sweetish baked raisin bread pudding, which is just so delicious on its own.

People who doesn’t have a strong sweet tooth or love for cheese would find this absolutely gorgeous.

But OMG I still love my cheesecake. *starts singing*
OMG I miss my cheesecake now. :(

Why don’t they have Italiannies in Bangkok?!
