Mezza Notte

Mezza Notte is also italian for “midnight”. but it was only slightly past seven pm when we found ourselves stepping into this modern italian restaurant, hoping to be fed well. the decor is a bit garish in my opinion, esp. with the scary purple walls. but somehow it works well with the lighting and comes off looking rather cosy in photos. as it was still early and relatively empty, we were seated at one of the booth seats in the corner which gave us substantial privacy.

we were served a complimentary bread platter and some vegetable sticks with a dip. i’m quite pleased with the selection of bread given and esp. enjoyed the breadstick and the cheesy cracker. the smashed olive dip was a big hit with us and we asked for seconds. ah, gluttons we are. following that, we were asked the dreaded question of still/sparkling water, to which we mumbled back “still”, in hopes it was plain h2o instead of “branded liquid” (i.e. evian or perrier). haha, as if. and it’s RM13 for every 50cl of evian.

Clam & Mussel Casserole

We started with the “Clam & Mussel Casserole”, which was prepared with cherry tomatoes and fresh herbs. It was glistening with the sauce and looked so inviting. Tasted excellent too. At RM26 per serving.

Soup of the day was “Lobster Bisque” (RM16). A rather simple soup with few key ingredients where freshness is the key. This tasted velvety and rich and was oozing with the fresh taste of the lobster. Very hearty and promising start. 🙂

Baked Lamb Shank

I chose the Baked Lamb Shank (RM42.00) because it had all my favourite sides – mashed potatoes (with pesto), fried onion rings and sauteed wild mushrooms (yum!). The mashed potatoes were sublime and I am very tempted to attempt making my own pesto mash. Think i am starting to fall in love with basil leaves. They add so much flavour to food. The onion rings were fried to a crisp but had no bitter aftertaste. I enjoyed this immensely.

My friend’s husband ordered the “Amanti Del Carne” Pizza (RM32.00), which is quite the meat lover’s pizza with beef pepperoni, chicken shreds, bolognese sauce, and mushrooms.

My friend ordered lamb too and she chose the Lamb Rack (RM78.00) which was served with thick potato slices, artichokes etc. I can’t remember what sauce was used, but thought mine tasted better.

Overall, service is commendable, and the waiters knowledgeable. Quite an extensive menu in my opinion. Japanese food is also available here so if Italian is not your thing, there’s an option here.
