Garibaldi Italian Restaurant @ Bangsar Village

Famous for their aroma and taste, truffles are the jewels in Italy’s gastronomic crown and Garibaldi is offering a special menu as part of white truffle season, which started in October and lasts till January.
Haiing from our neighbouring country of Singapore, Garibaldi is perhaps one of the most renowned Italian restaurants in town.

To supplement your meal at Garibaldi, there is also a full bar and an excellent wine list at Garibar downstairs.
Our degustation menu of the day was carefully crafted by Chef Giuliano Berta.
Bread Sticks
Freshly Baked Foccacia – I love the buttery/salty crust with a soft, chewy crumb!
We started our meal with Ostrica, Irish Oyster with Poached Quail Egg & Caviar. Plump, juicy and briny; the freshness of the oysters were further enhanced by runny egg yolk. I also like the luxurious addition of caviar on top!
Cappasanta, Sea Scallop with Saffron Crispy Cauliflower and Tarragon Saucet.  Coated in a sweet and slightly zesty sauce; these big and succulent scallops were really good.
Vitello Tonnato, Italian Cold Cuts Veal in Traditional Piedmont Recipe with Tuna and Caper’s Creamy Sauce. The cold cuts have a milld taste, with slightly grainy texture. The capers creamy sauce is one of the tastiest ways to do up a nice mild cut like this.
Brodo Ristretto, Clarified Beef Broth with Egg Yolk and Truffle Bigne. Clarified with egg white; the beef broth was delightfully delicious. Some of us stirred up the egg yolk together with the beef broth while some preferred to have it separately.

Fagottino, Black Ink Squid Ravioli with Crab Meat and Sweet Dried Tomato on Potato Emulsion. The black ravioli was certainly an eye catcher! Generously filled with crab meat, the ravioli was impressive in both taste and presentation department.
Orata, Pan Seared Line Catch Sea Bream Fillet with Apple Black Rice Puree and Whitebait Omelette. This is probably my favorite way to eat sea bream. The delicate sweet flesh contrasts nicely with the crunchy skin. The slightly tangy apple black rice puree helps to reduce some ‘jelakness’ as we were going into our last course.
Agnello, the Roasted Tobacco Smoked Lamb Rack with Purple Potatoes, Celeriac Mash and Berries Sauce. I love my rack of lamb the way it is; it was a particularly tasty version.

Meringata, the Crispy Italian Meringue with Chocolate Chip Parfait & Dark Cherry. It was so airy, sweet and crispy that they seem to almost melt in my mouth the moment I put them in!

Sorbetti – Raspberry & Passion Fruit
Petit Four
Meet the affable Chef Giuliano Berta who has more than 10 years of experience in fine Italian cuisine.

Garibaldi is still the indisputable champion of Italian cuisine in Kuala Lumpur. However, pricing could be on the higher side. It’s degustation menu changes from time to time and is priced at RM250++ per person. Thanks Sonia, for the kind invite!

    Yesterday 07/October 2012 family went for lunch prepaid internet voucher RM577 for 6 persons,
    3 courses, firstly the up stair restaurant was closed we are asked to down stair the bar, no air con n plenty of smoky smell, this bar not suitable for lunch at all only good for drinkers n smokers..
    The foods does not justify the high price charge plus the taste no better, it is not true Italian cooking and the main portion of salmon or lamb shank just too small, appetizers no better,ingredients use are cheap like pumpkin, potatoes wedges , smash potatoes, deserts small piece of cakes ( 3 choices). Never go there again, the best deal still at Village Roast Duck finger licking one whole duck plus 4 other dishes bill come up to less than RM250.

  • oh looks appealing..would like to hv a try one day lor. but need to think twice 250/pax..hmmmmm TQ for d review! ^^
