Favorite Italian in Malaysia: Italiannies

I'm particular fussy when it comes to Italian food. Ever since moving back from the US, I've never found any truly outstanding Italian restaurants in Malaysia especially in Penang. There are a bunch of Italian restaurants in Penang and for the most part, I can probably cook better Italian at home.

Italiannies, The Curve
 I was happy to come across Italiannies at the Curve when we were visiting Kuala Lumpur a couple of years ago. We had ordered the seafood pasta and it reminded me of good Italian food I would get in the US. The pasta was cooked perfectly al dente - just the right amount of bite and not too soft. Similarly, the seafood was perfectly cooked and sauce tasty.

Complimentary Bread, Olive Oil and Balsamic.


Chicken Parmesan
 Italiannies isn't a white table clothe and formal establishment. It's semi casual but would be perfectly fine to bring a date in Malaysia. Mains cost about 25-40 ringgit making a meal there to be reasonably less than 100 ringgits.

Even though it might be out of the way, we try to make an effort to visit Italiannese to get our Italian fix whenever we're in Kuala Lumpur. In addition to the location in Curve, there are 3 other locations at Sunway Pyramid, Gardens Midvalley and Subang Empire.
