Italian Restaurants in Kuala Lumpur

Italian cuisine is one of the city's more popular International cuisines. KL'ites love their Italian food. So naturally Italian restaurants abound in and around the city. You'll find mostly traditional Italian restaurants serving rustic Italian cuisine. However, in recent years the city has seen many restaurants churning out a more modern take on Italian cuisine.

You'll find all types of Italian restaurants to fit your budget in the city. There are many casual eateries and off late, the city has seen a rise in fine dining Italian restaurants. The city's top Italian eateries have all gone the extra mile to recruit Italian chefs to create and cook authentic Italian dishes. You can get a tad overwhelmed by the sheer number of Italian restaurants in the city. Not to worry- we've sifted through all of them and have come up with our top favorites.

Topping our list is none other than Il Lido Italian Dining and Lounge Bar. This restaurant has set the bar really high for top-notch Italian cuisine. If you're willing to pay the right price, you'll experience impeccable service and exquisite food in posh surroundings. Each morsel of food explodes with flavor and texture. The restaurant goes beyond - all ingredients (fresh and seasonal) including their veal are sourced directly from Italy.

Coming in a close second is Garibaldi Italian Restaurant & Lounge. Though fairly new, the restaurant has managed to garner quite a following. From its kitchen, you'll be treated to classic Italian dishes - try spinach cappellacci stuffed with cod fish mousse; and pan seared sea bass fillet; or veal ravioli with Porcini mushroom cream sauce. Garibaldi's separate dessert menu is a sure welcome for dessert lovers.

Ciao finds its way to number three. The city's oldest restaurant has survived the test of time. Its secret - serving some of the best traditional Italian fare in a rustic setting. Menu lists Italian favorites such as hearty pastas and pizzas plus meat and seafood dishes.
