Tosca, DoubleTree by Hilton Melaka: Casual Italian Dining

A trattoria in the heart of Melaka?

If you fancy Italian food when you're in Melaka, check out Tosca located in DoubleTree by Hilton, Melaka. The restaurant offers home-style Italian cuisine including pizza, pasta, risotto, seafood and meat, at reasonable prices.

The interior is casual yet chic; diners can also watch as the chefs prepare their food, thanks to the open kitchen concept which comes with a purpose-built pizza oven. The restaurant also offers al fresco dining with a fantastic view of the city skyline, overlooking the hotel pool.

Currently, the restaurant is participating in the "What's The Catch" promotion, whereby sustainable sourced seafood are used to create an Italian seafood sharing family platter. The platter is priced at RM145 nett for 2 persons, and is available for dinner only from now until 30 April 2018.

To start, we had the Tiger Prawn Gratin with lemon and parsley... the prawns were fresh and lovely with the garlicky sauce - we loved the sauce so much that we dipped our bread in it and finished it all! A lovely start to our meal.

Diners can start their meal with a selection of complimentary antipasti 

Clam chowder with spicy pepperoni - smooth and creamy, pretty good. It would have been even better if the shellfish flavour was more pronounced.

For mains, we were served Roasted tilapia fillet with kalamata olives, shallots and cherry tomato, served with potato-crab meat scallopini and roasted baby vegetables. The fish was moist and we especially liked the creamy scalloped potatoes that came with this dish.

For a sweet ending, diners can choose 2 desserts from the a la carte menu - we went for the tiramisu and cassata.

For the kids, we selected the Peperoni di Manzo (RM42) pizza as well as the Lombata di Manzo Alla Tosca (RM88). The pizza had a lovely thin, crispy crust and base.. we thoroughly enjoyed this. As for the Angus sirloin beef, the kitchen did a great job cooking it to our preferred doneness - tender, juicy steak served with Chef's signature award-winning sauce.

Opening times: 11.30am - 11.00pm daily.

Service: Good.
