Christmas Dinner @ Verona Trattoria, Section 17 PJ

Thursday, December 25, 2014

The last time I went to Verona Trattoria, Section 17 was on WL's birthday. It became one of my favourite haunts for good pasta besides WIP at Bangsar Shopping Centre.

We have decided to celebrate Christmas at this restaurant, since going downtown KL or most Bangsar spots will be fully booked. It's a known fact that specially curated Christmas menu is priced dearly, we opted for dishes from the standard menu. To start off the night, the waiter served mushroom soup with truffle oil.

Oh, so appetizing!

The soup is not too thick; just the right consistency I like that doesn't fill my stomach too quickly. The dash of truffle oil really brought out the flavour of the soup. The next dish seafood marinara which consist of mussels, shrimps, squid & fish coupled with spaghetti. One of my favourites in my must-have pasta dish. Spaghetti was cooked al dente. Yums!

As usual,WL didn't want to miss out pork from the list. He called for a platter of roasted pork with salad. A scrumptious one, indeed.

We left a little bit of space for our tummy to indulge in the chef's recommended, tiramisu. One spoonful of the dessert made all the difference. Love the Bailey's & rum soaked sponge fingers paired with silky, smooth mascarpone.

I would truly recommend this place to anyone who loves a warm, cozy Italian ambient. Some might find the interior a little old & simple but I believe it exudes a more authentic & rustic Italian charm. Food averages around RM11 - RM20 or slightly higher depending on your orders. I wouldn't hesitate at all if being invited to dine at this neighbourhood restaurant. Rating: 4.8 out of 5
