Best Italian Restaurants in Kuching

Written by Updated ago

Most of us can’t resist the charm of a good Italian restaurant. This goes beyond having some garlic bread before being served a plate of pasta, or a tray of lasagna, and wrapping it all up with some tiramisu and wine. At it’s core, an Italian restaurant is meant to entice customers with the simplicity in it’s dishes, and warm welcoming hospitality. An Italian restaurant can do this by playing by the rules and keeping things authentic, or taking a few chances by adding some much needed flair, be it a local twist, a unique spin, or anything else in between. So here are a few Italian restaurants in the cat city that delivers on this promise, and then some.

    There are very few places in Kuching that get as Italian as Bella Italia. On top of having an Italian name, the owner of the restaurant also happens to be Italian. While all of this isn’t entirely important, at the very least it gives a sense of Italian authenticity to the restaurant, and the food here follows this pattern. Some of the Italian dishes customers can enjoy here include appetisers like mushroom soup, tomato soup, garlic bread, pastas such as Linguine alla Marinara, Fussilli Alla Pollo, pizzas such as the quatro staggioni, and much more. Of course, there’s nothing like ending an Italian meal than with a helping of tiramisu, which is also served at Bella Italia.

    Tips

    Plan the journey out as best as possible as it can be easy pass by the restaurant without noticing.

    Things to expect

Another dish that goes for a slight twist that’s worth noting is the duck pizza with its super thin crust, topped with sweet chicken floss, diced cucumbers, strips of mango and finely sliced coins of smoked duck.

    Follow the dress code to avoid any mishaps.
