Fine Dining @ Michelangelo Restaurant.Deli.Bar, Pavilion

Outside Michelangelo Restaurant.

Eddie and I, invited our best buddies, Yin and Yew Wei, to join us for dinner during Valentine's Day. We changed our plan for Valentine's Day last minute and did not make reservation again for the second time, so we ended up in the italian restaurant @ Michelangelo Restaurant.Deli.Bar, Pavilion.

Statue of David created by Michelangelo who has the fame alongside Leonardo Da Vinci during the days of Renaissance.

Reasons of us being in Pavilion were because there are various of finest international cuisine for us to choose and the environment is romantic especially when it was decorated with romantic lightings, which made it one of the best place for Valentine's dinner.

Seats specially made for the love birds.

Most importantly you don't need to queue for 1 hour before getting in the restaurant, which is the main point why I were there for dinner in Pavilion during one of the most packed evenings of the year.

The restaurant was really busy on Valentine's night.

We ordered one dish each and another pizza to share among us.

Costiera Pizza which consists of squids, prawns, mussels, marinated red and green bell peppers, tomatoes and mozzarella is great in taste. For those who are not familiar with mozzarella, it is actually a general term for Italian cheeses. Selling price for this 8-piece pizza is at RM 29.90.

Fapellini Al Promodoro E Basilico which comes in angel hair pasta cooked with healty olive oil, fresh basil herb and tomatoes sauce is best for vegetarians. This is actually just a plain spagetti which comes in tomato sauce, but the tomato sauce is quite tasty too. Price: RM 19.90 Rating: 7/10.

Pollo Alla Marsala is a pan grilled chicken topped with the mozzarella cheese and served with creamy marsala wine and capers sauce. The sauce is excellant and chicken is fresh. However, the dish is simply too small for a guy :P Price for the small portion of chicken is at RM 35.90 Rating: 7/10.

The Spagetti Alla Carbonara is the best especially the cream sauce. They put chopped garlic and smoked beef bacon for extra taste. Price: RM 26.90 Rating: 8/10

Spagetti Marinara sizzlelini is served in a sizzling skillet with 2 king prawns, 2 mussles, a few calamari rings and approximately 20 clams in spicy tomato sauce. It looked fantastic but it taste normal to me. Price: RM 39.90 Rating: 7/10

Blended Green Apple, Blended Carrot Juice and Ice Chocolate priced at RM 9 each and Ice lemon tea at the price of RM 8.

Tiramisu in rich mascarpone cream and topped with cocoa powder.

Finally, we indulged ourselves with a tiramisu cake at the cost of RM 15.90. The tiramisu was soft and very creamy, maybe they put too much of the fattening mascarpone cream. Rating: 6/10. If you love mascarpone, this is definately a 'YES' for you.

Now, check out the interior design of the restaurant.

The Italian paintings are hanging everywhere in the Restaurant and the ambience of the restaurant makes you feel that as if you were in Italy! instead of Malaysia!

You can see the chef cooking your food in the open view of kitchen in the restaurant as well.

And so, this was the end of our Valentine's Day without a candle light dinner, BUT we have had our besties for company. Thus, it was still a wonderful night for me :P I love the environment of the restaurant and I'm sure I'll be back there again :P although the food is quite pricy. (The price quoted above are exclusive of the 15% compulsory tax).
