Located at one of the busiest streets in Cheras, you can easily find this outlet at the corner of a row of shop beside Cheras Leisure Mall. This Italian restaurant appears to be less spacious but suitable for a decent family dining.
|The place is clean and tidy, with soft Italian songs are played as background music.|
It has been opened for more than 4 years yet this is my first time being there. The interior is quite simple with wooden chair and table. Its counter is made of bricks similar to many Italian restaurants out there.

|#1 Insalata Di Giulio Cesare (Caesar's Salad) @ RM 12.90|
This plate consists of fresh roman lettuce, parmesan cheese, anchovies, egg yolk, mustard, olive oil, beef or chicken and croutons. It is not your regular caesar's salad, the dressing for this is based on the regular dressing, but has a twist to it - chopped olives and olive oil make the salad unique with a bit of a Mediterranean flavour to it. Awesome salad, I love it!
|#2 Hawaiian Pizza @ RM 19.50|
It is a margherita topped with chicken salami and pineapple. It may look the same like those you normally eat, but looks can be really deceiving! Coz' I'm pretty surprised that this pizza tastes like heaven when I had my first bite on it!
|#3 Cannellono Di Carne O Di Pollo (Meat Sticks Lasagna) @ RM 18.00|
This lasagna is a plate of homemade Italian rolled lasagna skin stuffed with minced chicken or beef baked in cream cheese. It tastes good with the soft lasagna skin but the portion served is a little too small even for a petite eater like me!
|#4 Lasagne Con Pollo (Chicken Lasagna) @ RM 15.90|
|#5 Insalata Con Pomodoro (Tomatoes Salad) @ RM 9.60|
As for this plate of salad, it contains only fresh lettuce, tomatoes,
mozzarella cheese with extra virgin olive oil and herbal dressing.
A good thing about this is, it has no mayonnaise or additional sauces, meaning that it is another low-carb meal. The amount of mozzarella is not as generous as I'd think, while other fresh fruits are just tasteless without any other condiment.
Since the taste is a little too bland for me, I add lots of chilli flakes!
Now, the platter of salad is spiced up and becomes more flavourful.
What's my verdict for this restaurant?
1. It's air-conditioned but too bad, it has no Wi-Fi. And the place is quite small, only occupies around 30 pax; Not suitable for celebrations or gatherings.
2. The waiters speak good English, and food is served one after another, so that it doesn't get cold easily
3. Some in the menu are reasonably-priced as compared to other Italian restaurants
