So, my Big Day of the year again. Heee.. Last year this time we had French at Maison Francaise - Good food, good ambience (One of the 10 Best Romantic Restaurants in KL), good service and a darn good soufflé (They claimed they serve the best soufflé in town). A little on the pricey side but definitely worth the price. This year, my hubby suggested Vineria.IT - a chic looking Italian restaurant in BSC. 

Take your time going through the menu. You'll be spoiled for choice as there is an abundance of options; antipasti, secondi piatti, pastas, salads, sweets and a variety of wood-fired pizzas. 


Brodetto di Cozze e Vongole.
We began with the Brodetto di Cozze e Vongole - Fresh mussels and clams in a delicate broth of white wine and garlic, served with rustic bread. The mussels and clams tasted fresh and the sauce was right on the spot. A great appetizer for any seafood lover :D

Spaghetti ai Frutti di Mare.
Spaghetti, cooked to al-dente, with clams, mussels and jumbo tiger prawns, sautéed with brandy, garlic, chilli and cherry tomatoes. It was decent… not too oily, garlicky and just a hint of spiciness.

Quattro Stagioni.
What Italian feast would be complete without pizza emerging from the fiery chamber of a wood-fired oven? This Quattro Stagioni pizza fared better - thin crisp crust (courtesy of a blistering hot wood-fired oven) topped with turkey ham, olives, artichokes, mushrooms, pomodoro and mozzarella. 

Petto D'anatra con Marmellata di Fichi.
Pan-roasted duck breast with fig jam and pak choi, sautéed with garlic and olive oil. This kinda lacked the distinctive aroma usually found in duck meat and we were in for a chewy time as not all the sinews were removed from the duck breast.

Tiramisu Classico.
This was my birthday 'cake'. Though they took nearly 1/2 an hour to serve this but they did a good job decorating it and it was good!


The ambiance was inviting.
The wide selections of wine also take the limelight in the restaurant.

Overall, I think the food lacked consistency but service was good. Staffs were friendly with their smiles from the entrance till we left. In fact, I thought it was a little way too good as they asked us if we needed anything else few times and there was one standing behind us almost the whole time (Maybe because the restaurant was pretty empty at that time) >.<. He lifted up the plate for my dad when he wanted to scoop some spaghetti and he even tried to pour the wine for us after every sip. Lol! Would we be back again? Probably not. I prefer Monte's Restaurant & Wine Bar upstairs (Love their escargots!).
