Passione Ristorante Italiano which is a brainchild of the well travelled Italian Chef unfolds to contemporary new verve of casual Italian Dining within the cosy suburban neighbourhood in Sri Petaling. And in here, one can actually get a taste of the truly Italian delights all in one place.
The idea behind Passione is to introduce Malaysia diners a taste of the artisan Italian cooking in the good – old fashioned way. With Chef Stefano, who are from Abruzzo Italy, he draws the inspiration from familiar sights, scents and flavours he experienced in growing up. Each of the elements had been put into the restaurant where one can witness each element in lovingly recreated to craft brick by brick, bite by bite, to craft an immersive space of the complete Italian gastronomic culture.
And in here, Passiones brings you with the three central offerings such as pizza, pasta and produce. Each of the items are born with love out of Chef Stefano’s extensive International experience, passion for good food and keen understanding of the local tastebuds. And whats make it special is their menu offers you with the wide selection of the pork based dishes, promising food lovers with the unique experience of the authentic Italina Cuisine which is not commonly available on Malaysian Shores.
