We found a new hangout place in Kuala Lumpur and the best part is they serve Italian food day in and day out. For those who are a huge fan of Italian cuisine in Malaysia, I think we can all agree that it can be quite a challenge to find a great restaurant that actually offer a cozy place where we can enjoy great Italian food. This is why we’re so thrilled to have discovered Sassorosso Italian Restaurant just few blocks away from our office space.
It is hard to miss this fancy and quaint restaurant in Lorong Yap Kwan Seng. It looks really pretty from the outside and when you pass by, you can almost spell the pizza that they are baking. When we finally got to visit Sassorosso after work, we were even impressed to find that the restaurant doubles as a sports bar! From the outside, it looks like some romantic restaurant, equipped with soft lights and elegant table arrangements. But further inside the restaurant is their sports bar where young professionals, tourists, and expats hang out to watch a game show or simply enjoy a drink. We have frequented Sarrosso Italian restaurant thrice since then and here is a recap of our experience, so far:
Sassorosso website was not lying when they said that they offer authentic Italian food. I mean, how many Italian restaurants in Malaysia have you tried that ended up frustrating your taste buds? Any true lover of Italian food would know what authentic flavor tastes like and Sassorosso did not fail in that category. Our favorite order there is of course their pizza selection, which features some of the most exquisite types of cheese, and a perfectly made thin crust. If you happen to pass by Sassorosso during lunch time, you can also try their sumptuous ala carte meals. Don’t miss their seafood menu, if it’s available during your visit!
You can expect a high-end service when you visit Sassorosso. As a matter of fact, they have a dress code for entering the restaurant as a form of decency to other diners. The service crew look as elegant as the place, but the best part is they also know their menu too well. You will know from the way they tell you about their serving for the day that they were really trained to understand what goes into their food, and that adds to the authentic Italian feel of Sassorosso. We also got to meet the chef in one of our visits, and he was so warm to all the diners there.
Fusion restaurants are sprawling in Malaysia, now but having an Italian restaurant that doubles as a sports bar is truly a refreshing concept. We’ve once hung out at the Sports Bar, and it’s truly a chill place to go to after a long day at work. It’s not as dark and loud as your usual sports pub, but it also provides all the necessary stuff that a sports lover want: great drinks, high-definition television, and updates sports show.
