Non Halal Italian Food @ Buonasera, SS2



Welcome to Buonasera, your friendly neighbourbood restaurant. Please let us usher you.

Haha. We were seated at such an awkward place while waiting for a vacant table but we were OK with that. This shows how busy is the restaurant on a Saturday night (always a good sign). Nonetheless we waited seemingly patiently until we were finally called.

We started off with Minestrone soup (RM11.90), a thick Italian soup with whatever vegetables in season. I wasn’t too impressed because it has a lumpy texture rather than a smooth consistency. It’s just me because kampungboy begs to differ.

Prosciutto melon (RM28.90). You can’t go wrong with thin dry-cured ham and sweet, ripe melon wedges. A match made in heaven!

Pork snitzel parmigiana (RM27.90). Snitzel means a cutlet without bones; which make eating a bliss. Topped with Italian tomato sauce, it is a unique combination that makes you yearn for more.

Italian pork sausages (RM26.90). Again, you can’t go wrong with good quality gourmet sausages. It has a hearty flavour with a bacony flavour mixed with spices. Delicious!

However, Buoasera’s signature Free Range Rosemary Chicken (RM27.90) causes disappointment. The piece of chicken came out too dry and they’ve overdone the salt.

After a while, the chef came out from the kicthen and mingles with his guests. He used to work with Pizza Uno, and now he is running some pastas and desserts classes at the Cooking House.

We were filled to the brim but after much persuasion from Chef Enzo, we are having THREE desserts to end the meal. The first dessert was Mixed berry zabaglione (RM16.90), a mixed berry sorbet drizzled with some Italian egg custard made of egg yolks, sugar and Marsala wine. This is a very attractive looking dessert and is absolutely delicious!

Dessert No. 2 – Sticky Date Pudding (RM14.90) is to die for! Served with a very rich and sinful butterscotch sauce, this is not a dessert for dieters.

Last but not least, the tiramisu (14.90) was decent but personally I like more assertive mascarpone and a bit more alcohol.

With only some minor quirks here and there, Buonasera is still a decent place to go for some authentic home cooked Italian food. The pork dishes fare better and the desserts are to die for!

    Not complaining abt the quality of the food but the main course portions are amazingly measly. Bearing in mind that my pasta dish contained no meat or seafood, the least they could have done was put in more spaghetti, I finished my pasta in less than 5 mouthfuls, don’t mind the prices if the portions were more reasonable but even a kid wouldn’t have been full with the amount served. Really didn’t feel like ordering anything else after seeing the size of the supposed main courses.


  13. AndyTan says:

    Average italian fare only….but severely overpriced.
    Dinner for 2 will set you back RM300 for a starter + 1 glass of cheap wine + basic main + dessert.
    Way over priced for that cheap plastic chair and zero ambience restaurant.
    Not recommended unless you are desperate.


  14. Pieism says:

    Worse prosciutto melon I have ever had! The parma ham (which is supposed to be pink in color) came out almost a deep red. It was sliced thicker than it should be & there was too much fats on the cut. I suspect the ham was stale too. It tasted like leftovers. I am extremely disappointed.
