Italian Tomato Bangsar

Italian Tomato, the name struck me as being rather unique when I first read about it over at Evelyn's blog, that I decided to drop by the quaint cozy Italian restaurant the other night with Janice for a nice dinner. Located along Jalan Maarof in Bangsar, Italian Tomato wasn't that tough to find with it's ample parking space and standalone building.

Happy Hour- 5pm - 9pm

Landmark ~ between Toyota showroom and Indian temple (before Petronas). This used to be known as Gaja.

Reaching Italian Tomato just in time for dinner, we were greeted by the restaurant manager, and also 2 of the owners of Italian Tomato who were gracious enough to run us through the menu on what is good to order. The restaurant strikes me as being really homely, and even though it started raining heavily midway through our meal, we felt warm and cozy inside at our tables.

I was recommended the Sangria drink, a really nice wine punch to kick start our dinner. With a mixture of fruit and wine, it did tickle our tongue enough to enjoy the subsequent dishes that were served out.

Crema Di Funghi
#2 Crema Di Funghi, Homemade cream of mushroom soup - RM14

Next up were a mix of pizza, steak, lamb and an antipasti platter, all of which were served hot straight from the kitchen. Italian Tomato has a wood fire oven which churned out the perfect pizza for a perfect evening with Janice. Check out below on what we had that night. 

Antipasti Misti
#3 Antipasti Misti - RM 42
Pizza Carbonara
#4 Pizza Carbonara - RM28
Grilled US Angus Steak
#5 Filetto di Manzo, Grilled US Angus Steak - RM78

The Antipasti Misti was a rather big platter consisting of grilled mushrooms, deep fried calamari rings, carroza and garlic crostini with chicken liver pate, a rather good mix. The Pizza Carbonara was good, fresh from the wood fire oven. I found the beef bacon really does go well with Parmesan and mozzarella which were a few of my favourite ingredients for a good pizza. 

When the Grilled US Angue Steak arrived, it looked really good being grilled to a medium-rare state with a nice texture. However I found that particular piece of steak a bit too chewy for my liking, guess I prefer a more tender steak piece.

#6 Tiramisu - RM16

We ended a great evening dinner with the Tiramisu which came with layers of Savoiardi biscuits soaked in expresso and filled with Italian mascarpone cream cheese. A night to be remembered indeed, and as I bid farewell to this "little" Italian Cafe, my stomach was thankful to Italian Tomato for giving it a good feeding. Do check out Italian Tomato should you be in the vicinity of Bangsar and have a craving for some Italian food.

    Oh please..., food at Italian Tomato is lousy and expensive. Wine? average quality and too expensive. Athmosphere? From 1 to 10 maybe a generous 5. Plenty of parking???? Have you tried lunch time?, not mentioning that "view" is horible, noisy and gas from motorway also. A hawkker store is far greater, food included here....
