Ristorante Il Vineto

 Creamy spaghetti.. The name says it all - so creamy! Nothing special really. Cheese plus cream = filling. 

 Grilled chicken breast with lemon sauce, rocket and grilled potatoes. This was good - the lemon gave exquisite taste to the chicken breast. You know how dry and tasteless chicken breast is (yet it's still my favourite because it's meant for lazy people who hates deboning chicken), so lemon added more taste to it. Let's ignore the rockets.

 Leaves of flaky pastry with berries and ice cream - Ooooo this one was awesome. Cream was light and fluffy. Flaky pastry, very thin and cripsy, hence the name flaky? It was so good like eating pastries with cream and fruits. 

 We love this place so much we had to takeaway some food from Il Vineto... Since we were fying for pizza, Pizza frutti di mare it is for tea! We're talking about real seafood on pizza! How on EARTH can you find something like that in Malaysia?!?!?!?!? Probably there is but I have not encountered any yet.

We had to try the melon and prosciutto too - well this is a mandatory in Italy. You better not leave Italy without having it!!!! Up till today I can't really tell what's a good prosciutto and what's not. As long as it's not dry and tasteless it'd be fine for me.

 For the third time, we chose to dine in (oh man, I'm such a fan of this place!) So anyway, some goose pate served with bread and butter to start off? They should be a little more generous with the goose pate actually. It's a little stingy to offer that small portion. The size of the butter was twice as much of it. 

We ordered seabass to share. Like any other typical Italian restaurants, they would debone the fish in front of you.

This place is famous for their seafood. The seabass was really fresh, you could tell it by eating it - it melts in the mouth! Served with roasted vegetables and lightly drizzled lemon juice.

I love this place so much I went there 3 times in one trip. What did TripAdvisor rank this place? Number 2868. At some point I find TripAdvisor ridiculous and bias. It's not very accurate and don't put 100% into TripAdvisor really. It's a guideline, not a must. If this place were to rank that low, why would it be so full Also, the service is beyond expectation! The staffs are super nice and friendly...Which is another reason why I came back (Food is the main reason, even if the staffs are nice and the food ain't good I won't return). My latest trip to Rome brought me back to this place - which I'll talk about it later on. One thing, it's slightly expensive to dine in this place, I believe that's the price to pay for all of the good stuff I've mentioned above.

Highly recommended. Please disregard TripAdvisor's terrible judgement of this place.
