THE Capricciosa, which derives its name from a classic Italian pizza, is opening its doors to spread the Italian joy this Christmas.
Specialising in authentic Italian cuisine, they recently opened three branches at the Pavillion, Subang Parade and Sunway Pyramid.
With Christmas just more than a week away, diners can look forward to the restaurant’s special promotion.
The Slurrrping Christmas promotion offers three new pastas with prices ranging from RM29.90 to RM30.90.
Patrons would be able to sample fresh handmade fettuccine pasta.
The handmade pasta has a springy texture and in true Italian style, they are cooked al dente — firm to the teeth yet tender.
Their seafood pasta, the Fettuccine Bouillabaise features large prawns, clams, calamari and fish tossed with fresh fettucine pasta and tomato clam broth.
The variety of seafood that came with the pasta was complemented by the sauce that was neither watery nor too thick.
The Fettucine with Meatballs, Eggplant and Spinach were topped with beef meatballs and ragu sauce (spicy meat sauce). The meat sauce was rich and flavourful.
“Our sauces are home-made, and made fresh every day. It is slow-cooked for three hours and stirred consistently to produce that distinctive flavour,” said Perfect Treats Sdn Bhd marketing director Ryan Poh.
Perfect Treats Sdn. Bhd. is the licensed franchisee for Ristorante Italiano Capricciosa in Malaysia.
For those looking for something decidedly Christmassy, the Fettuc-cine with Smoked Turkey Breast and Genovese Sauce is made for the occasion.
The smoked turkey breast topped with honey tomato sauce has a slight smoky taste and was not too tough.
Fans of rice who just have to have that serving of rice in their meals won’t be disappointed with Capricciosa’s Rice Croquette, a deep fried rice ball stuffed with mozzarella cheese and served with homemade meat sauce.
The generous-sized rice croquette is filling and can be a meal on its own.
Lastly, no Italian meal is complete without dessert and the hearty Frittelle, pastry puffs drizzled with honey and cinnamon topped with two scoops of ice cream, and fresh strawberries was a perfect sweet end.
The Capricciosa Slurrrping Christmas Promotion is available until Jan 8, 2011.
