Pomod'Oro, Bukit Damansara

February 27, 2022

Bukit Damansara's new Pomod'Oro does simple, soulful justice to the rustic roots of recipes that span Italy's north to south. 

From the Abruzzo region, start with house-made chitarra, pasta with a full-bodied bite, lip-smacking with sausage meat and porcini mushrooms in light cream sauce, tasting like a plate prepared with love at Nonna's home (RM45).

From Lombardy, risotto alla Milanese with ossobuco, aromatic rice rich with saffron, partnered with braised veal shank that's monumentally fork-tender and magnificently filled with luscious marrow - one of our favourite renditions of this too-rare classic in KL (RM95).

From Campania, gnocchi alla Sorrentina, a steaming-hot casserole of authentic potato gnocchi, comfort food baked with buffalo mozzarella, saturated in tomato sauce that's a bit too sweetish for our liking (RM42).

Pizzas are also available, cooked in an Italian-made firebrick oven - the lightest choice is the Fornarina, with garlic, rosemary and olive oil (RM10). Dine beside some lovely wallpaper that honours the work of Early Renaissance painter Piero della Francesca.

20-G, Jalan Medan Setia 2, Bukit Damansara, 50490 Kuala Lumpur.
