Review: Limoncello at KLCC
Casual Italian fare forms the cornerstone of this lime-green, street-level bistro that replaced veteran restaurant Santini this month at Suria KLCC.
Limoncello seems to be run by the folks behind Pavilion’s Weissbrau & Spasso Milano, an assurance that food & service standards here pass muster. Note that Limoncello’s sister outlet, the more upscale Svago, will likely open upstairs sometime this month.
Mare di Monte Pizza
Wood-fire pizza ranks among Limoncello’s highlights. Can’t fault the Mare Di Monte (RM38.80++), a crisp-crust treat with prawns, mushrooms, tomato, mozzarella & white truffle oil.
Beef Ravioli with Sun-dried Tomatoes
Beef ravioli with sun-dried tomatoes (RM28.80++). The menu may not comprise surprises, but it’s executed well enough for a tourist-&-shopper clientele.
Pan-seared hake with light orange sauce, rosemary potatoes & buttered veggies (RM32.80++).
Breaded Chicken Breast with Risotto
Breaded chicken breast with pan-fried risotto (RM28.80++). Comfort food, fairly flavorsome.
Grilled Wagyu Tenderloin
Grilled Wagyu tenderloin (RM88++), thinly sliced but tantalizingly juicy, partnered with baked turkey pastrami & fontina cheese for extra savory-meatiness.
Milky Fior Di Latte gelato (RM8.80++), satisfyingly smooth.
Prices for Limoncello’s wine by the bottle begin north of RM140. Nice red, at any rate. Strangely though, limoncello isn’t on Limoncello’s menu.
