Italiannie, The Curve, Kuala Lumpur

This place is American Italian, evident by spaghetti and meatballs. According to the waiter, the bread served was baked in the restaurant and thus would be fresh. Funny thing was, it didn't even arrive warm. Sounded to me like too much was made at a time and there wasn't enough distribution going on for constant fresh batches.

The appetiser for we got was Mussels Lombardi. Mussels simmered in white wine, olive oil, topped with garlic, oregano and parsley. The mussels looked a little small but were otherwise quite fresh tasty.

This pasta was known as Shrimp Fra Diablo. Essentially fettucine in pomodoro sauce and sauteed shrimp tossed with pine nuts, spinach, asparagus and chilli flakes. And topped with feta cheese. Whew! I wouldn't say that it was amazing but it was interesting combination. The feta cheese was a nice touch. The shrimps were ordinary.

Interesting as it looked, I probably wouldn't be re-visiting the next time. It seems that this place is run by the same management as TGI Fridays (located somewhere too in the vicinity).
