Italiannies @ One Utama

~The best way to enjoy Italiannies is to bring friends and a big appetite~

Italiannies, a rather unusual eatery which is reputable for serving large portion of food. Last Saturday, I finally made my way there to test my appetite.

Complimentary bread slices were given before taking our order.


This is the best of all. I luv the crusty bread slices, dipped into the aromatic tuscany olive oil and vinegar.

Warnings have already been given to Char Siew Bao bout the portion that Italiannies serves which can easily feed up to 3 persons. I already had my lunch so I thought one pasta and one dessert should be enough for two. He was starving at that time and was skeptical bout my order.

Not till our main is served...

This is one humongous bowl of Angel Hair Pomodoro with chicken (RM24.90). I had one-third of 'em and left the rest to the hungry Char Siew Bao. As per other food bloggers, this bowl of angel hair tasted really good, served with lotsa tomato chunks which I like. Absolutely the way I luv my pasta to be served.

Even the dessert, Tiramisu is 3 times the size of normal cake slices from other eateries. Priced at RM15.90, I think it is really worth the price, considering the big serving as well as the luscious mascarporne cheese layered in between.

Not to forget, our drinks... This is my frozen ocean fling (RM6.90)--a refreshing sweet sour drink with crushed ice.


Char Siew Bao ordered peachlifter smoothie (RM7.90), refreshingly good with peach chunks (i think) at the bottom.


Overall, the meal was enjoyable. I like the bread dipped in olive oil the most while Char Siew Bao luvs everything from Italiannies.

Our next try is the Wednesdays' never ending bowl of pasta, priced at RM19.90 per pax. Currently, the record holder is meiyen from da wheel of life and happiness and her darling, who managed to finish 4 bowls of pasta...bravo!

4 bowls of pasta each or 2 of them? How big is the bowl? Wow...must go on Wednesday then.

Xiu Long Bao said...

Precious pea: Check meiyen's post on Italiannies! Both of 'em hav 4 bowls of pasta. Each bowl is soooo big that can feed 3 persons. Not sure if the Wednesday's bowl is smaller ;p

jason said...

Wah... they surely have big appetite! or the pasta is too good not to be eaten?

Kok said...

xiu long bao: Angel Hair Pomodoro with chicken has such a large portion. I don't think I can finish it leh.

Xiu Long Bao said...

jason: both actually :) The pasta was really gud...generous portion + high quality pasta sauce = what more can u ask for?

kok:I think 'guai lou' also cannot finish one bowl. Wonder why are they serving such a big portion @_@'

tankiasu said...

Yea that plate of angel hair looks really huge!!! Kakaka...just right for a big-eater like me. Makes me reminiscing about the time I spent in Australia, where all servings are huge. ;)

Xiu Long Bao said...

tankiasu: haha, imagine taking 3 normal plates of pasta, dun u feel jelak?

sc said...

i've been to italinies twice and both times, the pasta i had was extremely salty. i've stopped going there since. but seems like everyone else have had good experiences..

Xiu Long Bao said...

sc: Huh? Extremely salty??? Not to my chicken pomodoro. Maybe u ordered other salty varieties?

MeiyeN said...

aiksss..... so "paiseh" O_o

Xiu Long Bao said...

meiyen: where got paiseh...i wan2 break ur record leh ;p

Tummythoz said...

Luv the food and service but friends in skirts got bitten by mosquitoes when we sit outside to the point that v asked for mosquito coils! They dun have.

Xiu Long Bao said...

tummythoz: Huh...got bitten by mosquitoes?? maybe the smokes generated by mosquito coils giv bad smells? :o

Kok said...

xiu long bao,
It's one of the business strategies I guess. Serve large portion, can earn more. Why not?:P

Xiu Long Bao said...

kok: The pricing, though expensive is within the normal range of classy western restaurants. But Italiannies make its servings bigger than usual so u can bring 3 ppl (not so big appetite one) and order one main loh :)

myCoffee said...

What I like best is what's FOC..., their complimentary bread basket with their olive oil + balsamic vinegar drip..hehe

Xiu Long Bao said...

jason said...

xiu long bao: Ooo.. gotta try it when I'm in 1U :p

Xiu Long Bao said...

Char Siew Bao said...

psst ... italiannies pasta promotion is ending this week.

LC said...

Problem with pasta dishes in Italianies is that the pasta is pre-prepared...and tastes like it. You can do better by yourself at home, which is a pity.

It is the knight noah which makes me very happy these days, my brother says knight gold is his favorite games gold he likes, he usually knight online gold to start his game and most of the time he will win the knight online noah back and give me some cheap knight gold to play the game.
I am so happy to get some last chaos gold and the lastchaos gold is given by my close friend who tells me that the lastchaos money is the basis to enter into the game. Therefore, I should buy last chaos gold with the spare money and I gain some cheap lastchaos gold from other players.
