Piccolino @ Taman Desa


Pigging out at Piccolino, Taman Desa's new hub for hog-loving Italian fare: Nearly two-thirds of the menu here is all about the oink, with the zampone ranking as the most interesting item - a Modena classic of boiled pork trotter, stuffed with pork fat and skin, served with lentils for folks who favour rustic cooking (RM26.90).

The rest of Piccolino's repertoire, overseen by Sardinia-born chef Paolo Pala, promises crowd-pleasers. Linguine carbonara is cooked with a light touch, mixed with egg yolk, pork belly, bacon and only a little cream, luckily (RM19.90), while the salami picante pizza is thinly topped with slices of the restaurant's own cured pork that packs a reasonably savoury punch (RM27.90).

  1. I'm sure I'd love the stuffed pork trotters, sounds good. Love the slogan - work hard, stay humble!

  2. Had dinner there a couple of weeks ago. Good place with tasty Italian pizza, but the ribs were mediocre.

    1. TzePing: thanks for the tip about the ribs - guess it's safer to stick to the pastas and pizzas ;)

  3. Every month I would meet up with friends at Faber Towers at least once as their location is so strategic & central.

    I always overlooked this ground floor outlet. I should visit too since I love pizzas!
