Accento Cafe, Finnieston

Photo by Samad | Facade of Accento Cafe Nestled in a tiny corner of Finnieston in West End Glasgow, lies a nook occupied by a cosy and homely Sardinian cafe known as Accento Cafe. From the Mediterranean island of Sardinia in Italy to the chilly metropolis of Glasgow, Scotland, this comfy space was opened by a family of Sardinians wanting to bring their tradition, food and personalities to the locals of the city. Upon entering the small cafe, you're surrounded by all kinds of

Zucchini Bros, Dunedin New Zealand

Italian cuisine is becoming more and more popular, and we have found another goodie in Dunedin. Zucchini Bros, like all great Italian restaurants, specialise in pizza and pasta. Our meal today consisted of two pastas, two pizzas and two desserts. We started off the meal with the chicken, mushroom and crème on penne ($19). The dish was smooth, rich and creamy, packed full of flavour. Mouthwatering! If you are into creamy pastas, this is your go-to! But if you prefer your pasta

Bombolini da Lena Lu, Perth

Ciao Amici! Just hearing the words Bombolonas, Bombolone or Bombolini could strike out big smiles without even knowing what this is. Wait till you learn, they are Italian filled fried donuts, dusted with sugar, ordinarily in the size of a ping pong ball. And now, Lena Lu who owns the only Bombolini bar in WA, caters these "little pockets full of goodness" in the size of a regular donut! Now how do you feel? Here are some of the varieties of fusion Bombolini's created by Lena

Neroteca, Bukit Ceylon

Every once in a while, you'll stumble upon an F&B establishment that will completely blow your mind. We did, and it's none other than Neroteca @ Bukit Ceylon, Kuala Lumpur. Tucked within the Seri Bukit Ceylon Residence, Neroteca is a charming little Italian restaurant with a warm and cosy ambiance. I wouldn't call it fine dining as it feels more like a place of comfort to feast on hearty and delicious Italian cuisine. You will be spoilt for choice as they have a wide range st

Vineria.It, Bangsar Shopping Centre

This was my first visit to Vineria.It, but we were dining with another pair of influencer friends who had tried this place before. They said when they last visited Vineria.It, the food was impressive and much to rave about. So we had our hopes up when we walked in. We were seated immediately but considering it was 7PM on a Saturday night in Bangsar, the place was still rather quiet. Like all Italian places, serves bread upon being seated. The meal started off alrea

Sapore, Persiaran Ampang

Anyone who knows me well would tell you that I love Italian food. So of course I jumped at the opportunity to review one of Ampang’s most authentic Italian Spanish restaurant, Sapore. The thing I love most about Italian cooking is the fresh and vibrant flavours that showcases the beautiful ingredients used in cooking the dish, and Chef Fabio Ruggiero does just that. Chef Fabio is the man behind the restaurant, hailing from Italy’s Puglia region, he has worked in several 5-sta

PizzaExpress, Scotts Square

PizzaExpress is known for their special Dough Balls, which we heard were all the rage. So we went down to check out what the fuss was all about. We started out with the Christmas Dough Balls ($6), which comes with black truffle dip (yaaaasss), cranberry chutney and garlic butter. The balls had a soft, yet crispy skin but the inside was nice and fluffy. The black truffle dip was very light on the palate, but of course, carried the distinct truffle fragrance. The cranberry chut

Basilico, Regent Hotel

Tucked away at the back of Cuscaden Road in Regent Hotel, it may be a little out of the way for some, but it's worth the trip if you are looking to get a taste of Italy. Coincidentally, that is also the theme of the restaurant for 2017. We tried the Winter and Spring menus, and boy, are they exciting! Pictured above is the central buffet table of Basilico which prides in its plethora of foods originating from Italy. Merluzzo Avvolto in Pancetta Affumicata servito con Broccole

Portofino, Bangsar

Portofino is one of my favourite Italian places in Kuala Lumpur because even though it is opened by two Italians, they try to incorporate as much local flair into their dishes as possible without losing the Italian essence of things. They’ve also got a killer wine menu. Recently, they brought in a vino expert from Verona – the hometown of Romeo and Juliet. And while the story of the star-crossed lovers may not have ended very well, my love story with the wines at Portofino de

A'Roma Dinings, Taman Paramount

After visiting Italy twice in the last couple of years, I really fell in love with the country and everything about it. Especially the food. They say the fastest way to a (wo)man's heart is through the stomach and I couldn't agree more. The Taman Paramount area has always had good food and recently years have seen more modern cafes and restaurants popping up. Though the neighbourhood is still primarily inhabited by the older Chinese generation, you'll find flocks of younger p
