Kucina Italian Restaurant is a halal restaurant that serves up authentic Italian food made by Chef Gero, an Italian Muslim convert, and his team. Located at the One KM Mall at Tanjong Katong, this is the perfect place to bring your dinner date or have a casual lunch with your friends. If you’re down for a delicious three-course Italian meal, definitely try this place out as they have a huge menu of dishes to choose from.
Start your meal with their signature Kucina Antipasto containing cold cuts, salad and deep-fried bites. This is perfect for sharing, and you can get a small variety of items to sample as well. Fun fact: when the Antipasti is served, it means that it is a start to a formal Italian meal.
One thing you cannot miss out is their pasta dishes as all the pasta is made fresh in-house. They have all sorts of dishes such as seafood pasta, bolognese, lasagne and so forth. We got their recommended Tortellini Di Manzo which is handmade pasta stuffed with meat and served with a creamy mushroom sauce. The pasta is cooked perfectly, the meat filling is juicy, and the sauce compliments the whole dish really well.
And of course, try out their homemade pizzas where they are made and baked upon order. Choose your pizza, from sweet or savoury ones to tomato or cream based. If you’re a fan of seafood, try out the Frutti Di Mare. Fresh seafood like scallop and crab sit on top of a homemade pizza crust covered in tomato; it puts other seafood pizzas to shame.
If there’s another thing Italians did right, it’s the desserts. Try out their Pistachio Affogato or some Cannoli filled with Mascarpone cheese. If you’re in the mood for something familiar, they also have the classic Tiramisu, lava cake and so forth. Whatever your dessert is, it is always a sweet ending to your meal.
Kucina Italian also offer set lunches in the afternoon where it comes with an appetiser and a main. Top up to get their dessert of the day with coffee or tea to have a complete Italian lunch! It is also a great place to unwind in the late afternoon with a sweet treat and a nice cup of coffee while you chill out with your friends. Whatever your plans are, Kucina Italian will never leave you disappointed.
