Still remember, during my first Valentines Day with Jack, we celebrated at Bella Italia. It was my very first visit to Bella Italia back then. We ordered a pizza and a pasta with cream sauce and the meal ended up with full satisfaction.
After a year, finally I had the chance to revisit the restaurant again. With Angeline and Elaine around, we can order more dishes to try out. Honestly, I really enjoy the food at Bella Italia more than Little Italy.
Pizza 12" with 3 Topping's, RM28.00
The Margherita Pizza comes with a choice of 6" or 12" and you can choose your own toppings. Each topping cost an extra RM2. Our Margherita Pizza actual cost is just RM22. With 3 extra toppings which included mushrooms, pineapples and chicken sausages, it sums up to RM28 (RM22 + RM6). The thin crust was good and the pizza was definitely tasty. The taste is very light but we love it.
Spaghetti Seafood Marinara (Low Fat), RM23.00
Another thing we like about Bella Italia is their menu which even listed the 'Low Fat' sign. I think most girls care about their food intakes and the 'Low Fat' sign can really be a good guidance. The pastas comes with a few choices of pastas and sauces. We chose Spaghetti and the Tomato based sauce; Seafood Marinara. It tasted good and the chef was very generous with the seafood. I can hardly see my Spaghetti as is was covered by the variety of seafood(mussels, clams, prawns and octopus).
Penne Sicilianna (Vegetarian Low Fat), RM23.00
This is one of the dish I will highly recommend. Although it is a vegetarian based sauce, the taste was really good. Delicious and full with herbs flavour. I personally love this. Sicilianna sauce best goes with Penne.
Total paid for tonight dinner + 3 Sky Juices, RM100.65
As recommended by Fara, the Tiramisu was really a good dessert to end your meal. The Tiramisu was freshly made. Creamy and fragrantly good. I ate the Cherry before eating the cake and it wasn't too sweet but Angeline felt that it was a little bit too sweet but still nice.
It can be tempting to blame others for our loss of direction. We get lots of information about life but little education in life from parents, teachers, and other authority figures, who should know better from their experience. Information is about facts. Education is about wisdom and the knowledge of how to love and survive. But no matter how much advice you get, you are the one who chooses which train to board. As you pass through life, pay attention to the signs and stations; if you don't like the scenery, pull the emergency cord and get off the train. There is no other conductor in charge. There is no one who needs to give you permission to transfer. This is your life. Your journey. Your trip to conduct.
