In the heart of Old Petaling Jaya is perhaps one of the district’s best kept secret; an Italian restaurant par excellence. Everyday Food I Love was pleasantly surprised to discover this place because as everyone knows, Petaling Jaya is more famed for many good Chinese restaurants, notwithstanding the hang-outs of many outstanding street food joints.

Focaccia with Tomato SalsaWe did not have long to wait, for as an appetiser, we were treated to Focaccia on a serving board. It had a nice thin crust, which was soft and warm. Accompanying it was a dish of tomato salsa which was fried with garlic and chilli flakes, it imparted an enjoyable spicy contrast to the homely focaccia. The Focaccia is made upon ordering, so patrons of a’Roma are assured of something to munch on while waiting for their Entrée.
Norwegian Smoked SalmonThe Focaccia was soon followed with this interesting salad. The ensemble was made of up salad and rocket leaf, slices of pickled beetroot, rolls of Norwegian Smoked Salmon and half a boiled egg crowned with salmon roe. All of this was served on top of a slice of Mortadella, a cold cut Italian sausage which originates from Bologna.
Spaghettini Alle Vongole 👍This entrée quickly became the author’s favourite. Fresh clams are first boiled to stock, and then the stock used to cook the spaghettini. This infusion of flavour from the very start helps to bolden the character of this dish, and you cannot help but appreciate the fine attention to details. The clams on the other hand are then pan-fried and seared with extra virgin olive oil, garlic and chilli flakes. The resultant savoury dish was a delight, and whilst the author is not really a big fan of clams, it was all eaten up by him. Down to the last clam. 😁
Costolette D’Agnello 👍👍This quickly became a favourite for our confrère Angeline. A lamb rack is liberally spiced with a covering of Harissa & Herb, which is then served on top of a bed of mashed potatoes sitting atop artfully arranged grilled capsicum and zucchini. The entire ensemble is served on a serving board but it was an easy feat to dig into as the lamb was tender and juicy. This dish is rated two-thumbs up!
