Italian affair @ Buonasera, SS2

Mie is back! After being hiatus for almost 2 months (blame the corporate exercise in China!!!), i am now back writing my beloved blog! Miss the time writing my feelings and comments in my sweet lovely blog...haha....
The special one was in town yesterday, spending the Mid Autumn festival with me ^_^ We also decided to have a lovely yet simple dinner to celebrate my recent promotion ^_^
So we headed to Buonasera, a neighbourhood italian restaurant located @ SS2. I have read about the good review of this restaurant from bloggers and decided to give it a try. The chef used to work with Pizza Uno (which i like very much too but didn't manage to visit anymore since few years back....) and is also running some cooking classes at The Cooking House.

We started off with 3 mushroom soup - RM9.90
I wasn't too impressed as i personally favour a thicker version of mushroom soup. This came out to be a bit plain to my liking, but he liked it much. Nevertheless, it still tasted good, just a bit watery...

Prosciutto Melon - RM29.90
Thin dry-cured ham paired with sweet & ripe melon wedges
Fantastic combination!
This is actually the main reason why i wanted to visit this restaurant...

Penne Boscaiola - RM28.90
A very generous portion of pasta with mushrooms and pork.
I'm not normally a big fan of cream sauce, but i must say that i really enjoyed this dish. Just very sumptuous and flavourful ~~~

All Pescatore pizza - RM37.90
A seafood pizza, thin layer of crust and yet not hard at all. Proven that the pizza base is really freshly made. Expect some squid, large shrimp and even oyster on this pizza. Topped with italian tomato sauce, it makes you yearn for more !
Oh by the way, this is a large pizza and we managed to wallop it all....hehe..

My all time favourite - Tiramisu - RM16.90
Served in a cocktail glass, i really enjoyed this to the fullest.
Generous portion of mascarpone and some hint of alcohol, GOOD!
Too full from all the mains, he couldn't stuff in the desserts anymore.
Ended i finish this on my own...GUILTY!

I'm rather impressed by the quality and the selection of foods here, not to mention it's mid range pricing. If you are craving for some home cooked and authentic italian dishes, this would be the place i recommend. Oh yes, they are non-halal, use extra virgin olive oil and no MSG!

  1. Average italian fare only….but severely overpriced.
    Dinner for 2 will set you back RM300 for a starter + 1 glass of cheap wine + basic main + dessert.
    Way over priced for that cheap plastic chair and zero ambience restaurant.
    Not recommended unless you are desperate.
