Shrouded in leafy foliage, this upmarket restaurant along Lorong Kurau is a superb spot when it comes to Italian eats. The trendy setting sees white tablecloths and concrete walls, with long tables great for group celebrations. The menu here is blessed with options, but look to the truffled dishes to blow your mind. Dinner begins with a cool starter, the Cold Capellini (from RM58) that's creatively spun with truffle paste, kombu and sea urchin. For a primi (pasta), don't miss the Tagliatelle (RM78). Easily one of our favourite pastas of all time, the gorgeous tagliatelle is sauced with truffle butter, and then topped with a wobbly egg yolk. If you're here in the day, take advantage of their value for money set lunches β€” a Barramundi Alla Griglia Con Pesto (pan seared barramundi) will set you back only RM34 with a soup and a drink! Reservations are recommended in this small space. Pro tip: Mario & Luigi doesn't charge for corkage, so go ahead and bring your own bottle for this.
Avg price per person: RM120
