Pizzeria Bella Italia @ SS2 Petaling Jaya

8 03 2011

Nowadays, it is pretty hard press to find value for money set lunch. Hence, when I found out that Pizzeria Bella Italia is offering their set meals from RM 9.90 onwards, I was more than eager to try it out. Pizzeria Bella Italia has been around in SS2 for a long time. The funny thing is that I never actually stepped into this restaurant until I was told that the food is really good there.

The Margarita pizza that came with the set meal was served on a round wooden board.

The thin crust (which is how a real pizza should be prepared) and the light toppings tasted really good.

The cheesy texture was more than enough to make me smile. For RM 9.90, this is one of the best lunch deal around.

The classic spaghetti was equally delicious. Cooked with olive and slice chilies , the meal was simply good.

And for the price (RM 9.90), there is really nothing that I can fault about it.

Each set meal came with a bowl of mushroom soup and a piece of bread. The soup tasted pretty decent and did not have the floury texture offered at some other restauraunts.

Pizzeria Bella Italia is one of those restaurant that offers great food at a cheap price. Truly a rare gem in the neighbourhood of Petaling Jaya.

Vivo @ Bukit Tinggi Jusco, Klang

21 02 2010

Despite venturing around town looking for nice food on a regular basis, it is sometimes not easy to decide what to eat especially when choices are abundant. This was the exact predicament I was facing when walking around Jusco at Bukit Tinggi last week. The number of restaurants there was certainly more than ample which makes it hard for me to choose what to have for a meal.

Taking my chances, I finally decided to try out this new restaurant called Vivo located at the ground floor of the shopping mall. According to the menu, the pizza served at Vivo originated from a secret recipe of the Horrigan family, who served the best American style pizza in town using the traditional method of baking. The friendly waiter recommended the Smoked Chicken BBQ pizza (RM 18.90) which comes with chicken strips, fresh mushroom, onions, capsicums and topped with their special BBQ sauce on a 10″ thin crust.

True enough, the pizza was really good.

I love the taste of the BBQ sauce. The smoked chicken meat is also nice but overall it is the sauce that gave the flavoursome taste.

The Seafood Spaghetti Aglio Olio (RM17.80 )  is another recommended meal.

If you are in the mood for some spicy dish, this certainly won’t disappoint.

The mussels are certainly big.

The prawns are fresh too.

More pictures…

Apart from that, I also tried the BBQ wings (RM 9.90). Since I was feeling really hungry that night, it didn’t take me long to finish them.

Our meal came with a Oreo Cheesecake (RM 5.80) which again was pretty good.

Pino’s @ OUG

31 01 2010

I came across this Chinese coffee shop along Steven Corners at OUG selling… Italian pizza. As strange as it sounds, the huge banner display outside the shop is rather obvious and will certainly spark the interest of those who are walking along the walkway. However, don’t expect posh dining with fancy interior decos.

The shop apparently sells economy rice during day time. By around 7 p.m. the pizza stoves will be set up and a man (who looks like an Italian himself) dressed up in chef clothing will be busy preparing the pizzas.

Too bad I did not bring a long my camera that night but I managed to take some shots of the pizza when I packed it back home. I chose the Hawaiian pizza which costs around RM 15.

The taste wasn’t too bad either. The dough is crispy and thin while there are a generous amount of toppings on top.

Niro Fico @ Damansara Heights

18 12 2009

While a pizza costing RM 36 may be rather expensive for a typical wage earner like yours truly, Niro Fico at Damansara Heights has justified their prices through its reputation of serving authentic Italian wood-fire pizza. Carrying a tagline of “Bringing you all the best things about Niro Italian Restaraunt to Kuala Lumpur, the place boasts highly trained chefs that can whipped up delicious pizzas unlike any other places.

I was lucky to get a chance to try their Pizza Marittima yesterday when my girlfriend packed it for lunch yesterday. It comes with a simple brown box which can be deceptive as the content itself is far from being plain!

Marittima comes with tomato, mozzarella and a mixture of seafood. And this is where Niro Fico pizza stands out from the rest. The generous amount of clams, squids, prawns, mussels are really mind blowing.

Just look at how big these prawns are.

Every inch of the pizza is filled with seafood.

It is like a big round piece of seafood galore…

And the taste? Well, I have never been to Italy before but I reckon that the taste is truly great. The only downside to this is that once you had tried this, you will never go for Pizza Hut or Dominoes anymore. I will leave you here with some of the other scrumptious pictures taken.

Papa John’s Pizza @ Sunway Pyramid

13 11 2009

Papa John’s Pizza has finally arrived in Malaysia. Actually, it has been around for a few month since the opening of its first outlet at Times Square. However, I did not get a chance to taste it until last week at their Sunway outlet.


“Better Ingredients, Better Pizza” has always been Papa John’s tag line and it certainly reflects on the quality of their pizza. Apparently, their Super Papa’s came highly recommended as it a classic combination of Beef Pepperoni, Italian Beef Sausage, Chicken Roll, Fresh Mushrooms, Green Peppers, Onions and Black Olives. We took the 6″ original which costs RM 11.20.


Here is the picture of the Super Papa’s pizza. I have tasted some really good pizzas before at some fancy Italian restaurant. So it is not fair to compare them together since Papa’s pizzas are price differently for mass market. But suffice to say (and comparatively speaking), it is better than our local Pizza Hut and even Dominoes Pizza.


We also took the Land & Sea (RM11.20) which consists of Chicken Roll, Shrimps, Mushrooms, Green Peas and Sweet Pineapple.


So what makes Papa John’s Pizzas taste so good? Well, for one thing, their pizza crusts are nicely baked unlike some other restaurant which has rubbery texture crusts. On top of that, I love pouring a generous amount of their complimentary garlic and pizza sauce which came with our order. Good thing they don’t charge extra for requesting additional sauces. While some people may want to dip their bite size crust into the sauce I love to gobble up my pizza with the sauces on the toppings.


Hmm… yummy….


They also gave some kind of green pepper which I did not try since it didn’t look appetizing to me. Some people might like it though.


Overall it was a good experience eating there. Anyone who loves pizza should drop by Papa John’s for its fresh pizzas.
