Savini Italian Fine Dining Restaurant, KL

Savini is the latest Italian fine dining restaurants to open in Kuala Lumpur, and it is set to impress with its exquisite food and excellent service. The restaurant houses a fully equipped bar, bar lounge, cigar lounge, 3 private rooms and a dining hall. The restaurant owners aim to create a cosy yet elegant setting, with white tablecloths, dark wood panelling and chandeliers.

The food here is classic Italian cuisine with a modern twist, made using the freshest ingredients and a whole lot of love. The menu comprises of antipasti, soups, pasta and risotto, fish and seafood, meat and poultry, desserts as well as Savini signature dishes. They also offer two Executive Set Lunch menus priced at RM48 and RM89 respectively as well as a tapas menu. The wine list is focused on bio dynamic and organic wines.

We started off our meal with the Gambaretti Cocktail (RM45), poached shelled prawns served with a mayonnaised-based sauce, infused with chili and capers. I liked the tangy sauce, which was light with a subtle spicy note.

Cocktail - Savini Martini (RM35) - this was delicious!

The Carpaccio Di Manzo (RM68) is a testament to Savini's philosophy of using the freshest ingredients - raw Angus beef is thinly sliced and drizzled with balsamic vinegar. The beef carpaccio sits inside a ring of mesclun salad, garnished with shaved Parmesan cheese.

We loved the Bisque di Aragosta (RM65), a rich and creamy milky foamed lobster bisque served with charcoal cheese bread. Have I already mentioned that every plate that comes out of Savini's kitchen is like a work of art?

Ah, the sight of scallops makes me happy! The chef uses plump Hokkaido scallops for this dish, sears them, tops them with ikura and serves them with watermelon and roasted fennel. The watermelon-scallop combination is a first for me, and the sweet-salty flavours work well together.

When asked what he likes best from Savini's menu, Faisal Al Zawawi, one of the owners of Savini tells us that his favorite dish here is the Wagyu MB9 (RM288). The Wagyu beef, with a marbling score of 9, was cooked to perfection - still pink in the centre, tender and melt-in-the-mouth. I couldn't get enough of it! This was served with aglio olio pasta as well as a mesclun salad with an aged balsamic vinaigrette.

For desserts, we had the Classico Tiramisu, Creme Brulee and Chocolate Indulgence with lavender gelato. The desserts overall were stunning, both in taste and presentation, but for me, the Classico Tiramisu stole the limelight. The tiramisu itself was beautiful and light, and the pairing of squid ink ice cream made it all the more delightful. The squid ink ice cream is not yet on the menu, however we were told that it is available upon request for now; we sure hope it will be put permanently on the menu! The taste is very similar to salted caramel ice cream, which happens to be one of of my favorite ice cream flavours. A must-try here.
