Monnalisa @ Plaza Damas, Sri Hartamas

A 1967 Fiat 600 sits in the corridor of KL's newest hideout for Italian fare, near a portrait of Naples' sun-kissed shores: Monnalisa founder Carmine hopes to do justice to the food of his hometown - expect pastas like crusty oven-baked linguine with beef, ricotta & buffalo mozzarella (RM28) or orecchiette with savoury broccoli sauce (RM20), typifying low-fuss, homely cooking. Finish with the Neapolitan favourite of rum baba (RM15) & say salute with Nero d'Avola (RM20) & limoncello (RM15).

M-1-1, Plaza Damas, Sri Hartamas, Kuala Lumpur. Currently open for dinner, Mon-Sat. Tel: 03-6206-5394
