One of the revamped Atria Shopping Gallery’s most promising dining destinations, Pizzolo blends traditional flair with modern flourishes to hit harmonious notes for creative Italian cooking in an open-kitchen setting that’s cheerfully & colourfully casual.

Menu is Still in Soft-Launch Stage

The menu is still in a soft-launch stage, but there’s enough to order for whetting the appetite. Light bites for seafood lovers include tangy trout ceviche in crispy kataifi pastry nests (RM19) & seared scallops with creamy avocado tartar (RM25). In the weeks ahead, expect other enticing additions like whipped foie gras butter toast (RM19), golden-fried ravioli with four cheeses (RM16), spicy chicken balls with peri-peri sauce (RM16) & crab cakes with lemon garlic aioli (RM19).

Pizzas with Tantalising Toppings

With a name like Pizzolo, the restaurant’s forte is unmistakable: Pizzas with tantalising toppings. We tried two – one with scampi & roasted garlic bulbs (RM37) & another with roasted lamb shoulder (RM35); both showcased capably balanced flavours & textures in servings suitable for sharing. Other potential highlights include beef with Brussels (RM32), charred salmon belly (RM39), crispy spinach with caramelised onions (RM26) & sweet cranberry jam with savoury cheeses (RM26).

Pasta

Inventive strands run through several pasta offerings too, such as the linguine with stroganoff-inspired chunks of tender beef (RM28) & ravioli stuffed with blue crab meat (RM37). You’ll also find a respectable range of mains like pan-seared duck with orange extract (RM43), black mussels in spicy cream sauce (RM37) & crispy chicken roulade stuffed with mushrooms (RM32).

Desserts

La dolce vita: Desserts include crepes with luscious ice cream, fruits & nuts (RM21). The best may be yet to come though: Pizzolo is also promising an upcoming contemporary cheese selection – cream cheese logs with crushed pistachios & honey (RM15), oven-baked brie with orange glaze (RM17) & whipped goat’s cheese with dried cranberries (RM19).

Beverages

Check out Pizzolo’s own-curated cocktail list – a compact selection that includes the potent Milan Twilight (RM28; dark rum, amaretto, pineapple & mango mix) & Venice Sweets (RM28; gin, apple sour, soda, sweet & sour mix). Predominantly Italian wines are also well worth trying – the sommelier’s choice is RM23 for reds & whites, but you could explore the mezzanine for well-priced bottles, mostly between RM80 and RM180. Many thanks to Pizzolo’s friendly team for having us here.
