Ristorante Bella Italia

Hubby was in the mood for Italian food the other day. I was thinking does Peppino in Golden Sands open at lunch, well, as far as I know they are not. So, ended up we both landed in Bella Italia in Bellisa Row, Pulau Tikus.

This place though is small, but you could see the stream of customers flowing in is pretty frequent. I supposed the food here is reputable.

I always like Aglio Olio Spaghetti (RM21-00). Without second thought I have this for myself, and also requested it to be a bit more spicy. When it serves, I was surprised to see they actually used chili padi to cook this instead of chili flakes. However, hubby likes this compared to others place.

We order a bowl of Crema Ai Fungal (aka Cream of Mushroom Soup, RM13-50) to share.

A Pizza Alla Siciliana (RM27-80) which consists of broccoli florets, fresh tomatoes, anchovies, garlic and black olives was hubby’s choice. He finds it a bit salty, but overall it was tasty.

Not to forget a cup of Long Black Italian Coffee (RM5-50) and a glass of Café Latte (RM6-50) that ends a fulfilling lunch.

Total damage is RM81-73. No doubt about it, this place is rather pricey. Though you could see many people are still patronizing this place. That’s one thing I don’t like was we both were thinking to have a quiet lunch, unfortunately the customers down there speaks very loud, that had spoilt our appetite.

This place brings back memories. It was the first restaurant I went dating with Gill. At that time it was a huge sum for lowly paid me.

Since then, I have not step foot into that place again for almost 5 years.

Hahaha at Jason's comment... awww, so sweet! The food's always been dependable here... although, yes, a bit too pricey! Did you meet the ever-youthful maitre'd? I'm sure he's been there for as long as this place's been opened!

Have fun, best regards, Lee.

this place looks a bit expensive for Penang, I think! Olio for RM21.90 is a bit high unless the is a lot of seafood or meat in it! :)

the food is not nice at all and waiters and chef are rude. I cant even finished the meal. I would definitely not recommend this place to anyone. Try Bravo italia.
