Fatto A Mano Italian Kitchen @ Telawi 2, Bangsar
Great tasting Italian food is hard to find in Malaysia especially in the Kuala Lumpur area..
This homey and Italian home is under the same owner of the Yeast Boulangerie which is just next door! Sister restaurants under the same area, Fantastic!
Simplicity is the main concept of the whole Italian culinary culture and food habit..
This is what can be seen from their whole restaurant which exudes simplicity in their decor that exude homey feeling with the comfy sofa and the white brick walls, the large table, roomy dining area and the simple picture of ingredients and their simple menu of simple ingredients dishes made delicious and with great passion
We were immediately ushered to our table and were presented a simple card menu
After scanning and deciding what to order from the menu..
For Appetizer, we ordered a Arancini Alla Siciliana which is beef & mozzarella risotto fritters which is rolled into a ball..
The moment it arrived to the table, it was presented in a basket of 4-5 balls of arancini accompanied with 2 dipping sauces that have a mint sort of flavour and the other which is tomato flavour

The next dish we ordered from the mains are Spaghetti Alla Carbonara..
This dish were ordered in a large portion for our table..
This style of carbonara is cooked like how the italian does it with just the egg yolk, parmesan cheese, black pepper and the addition of bacon.. Everything with bacon is fantastic!

We are still hungry even though we had the arancini and the carbonara..
So we decided to try their pizza.. There were 4 choices of pizza to choose from..
We went for their Prosciutto Pizza
The pizza made here are all thin crusted and it is well made with love as the ingredients are simple but fantastic combination of the saltiness from the prosciutto ham balanced out with the peppery & bitter notes from the arugula and the sourish of the tomato base.. True harmony in my mouth!
|Cannelloni con Spinaci e Ricotta|
This dish looks so homey when it arrives to the table and you can feel that it was made with full of love and passion just like how Gennaro Contaldo said it as the pasta was just smooth and silky and the ricotta and spinach was really delicious and not overpowering one another! Truly a lovely dish
Finally comes the last pasta we ordered which was the Mac & Cheese Alla Bolognese which is traditional mac and cheese with the bolognese sauce at the bottom (it contains minced beef)..
|Mac & Cheese Alla Bolognese|
This mac & cheese has just the right amounts of cheese and cream that it wasn't overly heavy and it is really delicious with the bolognese sauce which is full of flavour from the minced beef and the herbs that you can taste.. An ideal dish to be shared with just note that it contains beef
For our lovely lunch, we ordered 2 fantastic accompaniments to our meals which was the Trebbiano- Chardonnay that smells and taste like honey and a note of sour that brightens my lunch
The other wine we had was the Merlot-Sangiovese which has a deep ruby red colour and it has medium tannin which is just right for a hot day
|Trebbiano- Chardonnay, Emilia Romagna 2013|
|Merlot- Sangiovese Emilia Romagna 2013|
Verdict: An ideal place for gathering with the concept of family
Delicious but for a group of 7 or more do order more food
Attentive service staff
