Sassolino, Star Boulevard KLCC

October 20, 2019

The city centre's latest destination for Italian dining, Sassolino is the new sister restaurant of KL's long-enduring Sassorosso - the key difference between both venues is that Sassolino serves pork; it proves to be as pleasurable a choice as its older sibling, courtesy of a capable kitchen and a cheerful crew.

For a pizza that meets the mark, with crust that's both tasty and textured, topped with terrific produce, try the one cloaked in Parma ham and crowned with Apulian burrata cheese, a more-than-respectable representative of the Red, White and Green (RM68). It's also not often we see porchetta on a menu in KL - thankfully, Sassolino's is thoroughly satisfying, thinly and tenderly sliced, with the belly meat slow-roasted with all its savoury fattiness intact, served with rosemary potatoes, garlicky pizza bread and cooking jus for a lovely sharing platter (RM42).

Day-drinkers can start early with the calming azure of the butterfly pea tea-tinged Farfalla Rosa (RM36; with Marconi Italian gin, orange liqueur and fresh lemon juice) and the blue curacao-laced Nel Mare Blu (RM36; with white tequila and peach liqueur). If you prefer seeing red, sip on a Lagrein (RM29) or a Rossini (RM38; Prosecco with strawberry puree).
