Eatalia by Brava, Bangsar: Wood-Fired Pizzas, Pasta and More!

New to the Bangsar dining scene is Eatalia by Brava, bringing all things Italian to the 'hood, including delicious wood-fired pizza, pasta and much more. An iconic Italian Vespa greeted us as we stepped through the entrance, into a casual, relaxed space for a delightful family lunch here recently.

The menu features a wide array of appetizers, soups, salads, pizzas, homemade pasta, dried pasta, risotto, meats and fish and desserts, so there is definitely something for everyone here.

We started our meal with the Bresaola con rucola e mozzarella (RM33), a classic combination of Italian air-dried beef with rocket salad, buffalo mozzarella and extra virgin olive oil. Simple and good!

The kids loved the Mozzarella in carrozza (RM15), deep fried breaded mozzarella cheese served with pizzaiola sauce.Hot, crisp, with irresistible oozy cheese!

The custom-built wood-fired oven stands proudly at the front of the restaurant, where children and adults alike can watch as pizzas are made, right before their eyes. The pizzas are then baked under high heat in the oven, taking only about 2 minutes. We absolutely loved the thin crust, crisp and just enough thickness to hold the toppings together. There are over 20 types of pizza to choose from. We went for the bestseller, Hawaiian (RM21 for 10", RM28 for 12") which is topped with tomatoes, cheese, pineappe and hand-torn grilled chicken... SO GOOD!

Every Sunday (at 12pm), kids will have the opportunity to make their own pizza too. (Photo courtesy of Eatalia)

You will also be able to get homemade pasta such as gnocchi, ravioli and pappardelle here. We tried the Ravioli di carne (RM28), delicious ravioli parcels filled with chicken and topped with a rich, creamy wild mushroom cream sauce. Another winner!

There are also dried pasta available such as spaghetti, linguine, penne, rigatoni and fettucine. We had one of their signature pastas, Spaghetti al nero con frutti di mare (RM38), the spaghetti tossed in squid ink sauce, served with seafood such as clams, mussels, prawns and squid in a cherry tomatoes sauce.

Lamb shank holds a special place in my heart as it's one of those dishes we seeked out during our date nights in UK. So glad to have tried the Stinco D'agnello (RM36) here at Eatalia, a superbly tender and flavorful lamb shank in rosemary sauce braised in the wood-fired oven and served with mashed potato. The price is very reasonable too, for the generous portion.

Another equally fantastic meat dish here is the Filetto di manzo al pepe verde (RM68), grilled Australian 120 days grain fed Black Angus striploin (250g) served with grilled vegetable and potato in a green pepper sauce. Perfectly cooked to our preferred doneness.

There are also a couple of fish dishes here, such as the Filetto di salmone con salsa di creme all' arancia (RM38), pan-fried Norwegian salmon fillet with a creamy, tangy sauce, served with greens and potatoes.

Don't forget to leave room for desserts; choose from tiramisu (RM16), affogato (RM10), creme brulee (RM13) or panna cotta (RM13). Frankly, they're all so good, try them all if you can! My favorites are the classic tiramisu, flavoured with liquor and smooth, jiggly panna cotta served with a berry compote.

Opening hours: 11am to 11pm.
