been here 4 - 5 times, mostly for friends' gathering annually during Christmas when they serve special dinner set (4 course I think). there wasn't any wow-factor thru out the night.
12 of us, a kid broke a small sorbet cup (accidentally of course) since they left them on some chairs beside our table after we have had the sorbet.
felt apologetic and suggested to pay for their loss since the person in charge told us that it's very hard to get hold of such kind of cup nowadays.
total bill was RM3,900 or so, RM50 for the cup before adding in 6% tax & 10% service charge.

Ambience as pretty good especially for Christmas. Felt the pizzas were OK. Soups were quite good. Worth a visit definitely.

My dinner at the restaurant was wonderful.
The staff were welcoming and friendly.
I’ve ordered Fried Calamari, mushroom soup, pan-fried sea bass, petto di pollo aka pan fried chicken with cheese, tiramisu, cappuccino and ice lemon tea. The bill came up to RM 319 (with service charge and service tax).
They served focaccia right up that was accompanied with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. It was excellent – I love it so much that I bought a loaf home.
Mushroom soup – It is not the creamy soup. It has lots of real mushroom and with a spoon of full cream. It was tasty.
Calamari – well fried. Not too oily and the portion is big. Good to share for 3.
Pan-Fried Sea bass with assorted seafood – the fish was excellent. However, the shells that accompanied with the assorted seafood was not the most fresh. Overall, it was still good.
Petto Di Pollo – it was chicken with cheese when you cut the meat in half. It taste great. The mushroom and grains (which I can’t identify) was nice too. It is a filling dish.
Tiramisu – It is very nice to end with a dessert but not suitable for kids. The fingers were soak with alcohol that I felt warm after eating it.
I like the ambience and the food. I will be back with my kids in tow to try out the fire-bake pizza.

Gianni bit around for quite some time. It's a well known authentic Italian restaurant for local scene, warm light ambience which suitable for dating and reservation will be needed for dinner as most of the time it's full. Second time here, ordered the lunch menu set on Saturday, crowd was lesser and no pre booking needed. Love the pre meal bread with vinegar/olive oil and the creamy pumpkin soup. The lunch set is around 60rm ++ per pax. Good portion and tasty as usual, would recommend their pasta and barramundi risotto. Out of lunch set dessert, we have chosen tiramisu, quite a big piece for two persons =) overall nice experience again and recommend for aunthetic Italian food seeker
