First of all, I know I had been slacking in my blog lately due to my hectic workload. But I shall make some time for this post. Before I enter this restaurant, I did not know what to expect from it. To be pretty honest, there are so many Italian restaurants around which I had tried some, I can say not many of them are able to produce some good Italian meals.
Upon stepping into this place, I’m quite impressed by the interior design and ambiance. Being an interior and event designer myself, I quite like the touch of raw, Victorian and modern in its interior. I suppose an interior of a restaurant play quite a role in setting the mode of its diners. In this case, I am to expect some fine Italian dining experience.
Weihenstephaner Beer from Germany (RM27)
I’m not much of a beer person actually although I suppose I can drink. One sip of this beer, I can feel the smoothness down my throat. Definitely one of the smoothest beer I ever had. Exactly what I love about this beer. It is very smooth and refreshing to me especially after a long day at work.
Ms Jazz (RM13.90)
Ms Jazz is definitely one of a kind. You can only get this drink at Silverspoon Trattoria and not anywhere else as it is our host of the day, Jessica Ng who invented it. It is made out of lychee, orange sherbet, pineapple and milk.
Oreo Milkshake (RM13.90)
Although I did not tried the Oreo milkshake, but I heard from Mei Yee that it is very good as well.
As for our appetizers, we had this Chargrilled Calamari Salad. By far, I can say that this is the ONE and ONLY salad that I can kept eating everyday. Anyone can ask Caroline, I’m not a fan of salad but I think I ate the most of this salad compare to the rest. I especially love the sauce and how I wish I can have more. Although one of our companions commented on how the calamari can be improved, I still love it.

Although this stuffed mushroom is quite good and everyone prefer this compare to the Chargrilled Calamari Salad. I still prefer the Calamari Salad. However, I love how tender the mushroom is cooked and the toppings go very well with it.

Next for our main course, we had this Duck Leg Confit. The duck meat is very tender and juicy and it goes exceptionally well with its gravy. It just makes me crave for more of it.

Let me make this clear first. I’m a big fan of lamb meals. Lamb stew, Lamb chop, Lamb soup and you-named-it-I-like-it. This braised lamb shank did wonders to my tastebud. The tender and juicy meat compliments well enough with its gravy to send me into a frenzy. I like the fact that the gravy is very thick but enough not to cover its lamb taste. Did I mention that the mashed potato which accompanied it tasted excellent as well? It is very smooth and taste way way way better than the ones in KFC. Trust me when I said that KFC’s mashed potato is actually one of the best around here in Malaysia.

In a scale of 10, I would rate this rib eye steak a 12/10. Steak is exceptionally hard to cook. I like my steak to be 70% cooked and this steak is definitely perfect for my taste bud. I would rarely comment on a good steak but this definitely one of the best I had. The tenderness and juiciness of the meat still lingers in my mouth the whole night till the next afternoon. And now as I blog I am literally drooling.

Among all the pasta served, I love the spaghetti aglio olio the most. The rest of the pasta taste slightly above average but I still think the star among it is this aglio olio. Not too salty and the seasoning is just right.

If you are a fan of salmon, this grilled salmon is the dish for you. The juicy meat and the crispiness of the skin is done perfectly well. I’ve tasted many salmon before, both outside and at home as some of my family members love salmon, it is hard to find a salmon which meat is not TOTALLY DRY or wet. This salmon is grilled with perfection. Crispy skin on the outside and soft juicy meat on the inside.

The Chicken Parmigiana is one of Silverspoon’s best seller. One bite of this, I can understand why it is so. Although they used chicken breast for this dish, I’m surprised that the meat doesn’t taste dry and it fact, it taste quite tender.The cheese and tomato gravy topping made the dish much more irresistible.

There are too many food to talk about here and so I would just show you the rest of what we had that night. Although I find the Risotto and Lasagna can be better, the rest said they are quite good as well.
Linguine Pesto (RM28)
Spaghetti Marinara (RM29)
Lasagna Bolognese (RM27)
Seafood Risotto (RM29)
Salmon Spaghetti (RM28)
So for desserts, we have these 3 tempting devils to entertain us. The Tiranisu, Creme Brulee and Chocolate Pot.
Creme Brulee (RM16)
Chocolate Pot (RM15)
I love the Tiramisu for it’s soft and creamy texture. Although most of us thought that it contains a bit of alcohol, our host, Jessica beg to differ. The Chocolate Pot is the one with a slight alcohol content and it taste good as well. Do judge a book by its cover in this case as the Creme Brulee taste as good as it look.
I’m seriously stuffed from all the food and beer, which made me unable to enjoy a cup of my favorite coffee. Here are the coffee that were served to us.

So will I return again? Despite it being located in Wisma Manjalara, I still think the visit is very worthy. I would definitely return again for another dose of great Italian fine dining experience. Thanks Silverspoon Trattoria for making it happen.
