Craving for authentic Italian food? Last week I wrote of authentic Bulgarian food, this week it's Italian. Restorante Bravo Italiana is one of a few places in Penang you can soak up the taste of Italy, from Tuscany to Sicily. Here you can enjoy pasta, pizza, salads, soups, anti pesto, zabaglione and the all famed Tiramisu dessert, all in the comfort of this quaint little restorante.

The interiors are decked with posters and beautiful pictures of Italian landmarks, all taken by the owner and chef Lim Fung Chin who worked in Italy and has travel the whole length of the Italian peninsula. Chef lim who has more than 15 years of culinary experience under his belt, has worked in many places including the city Bologna and on board an international cruise ship which sailed around Europe and the Caribbeans.

Chef Lim believes in cooking the best for his customers including using the best ingredients like Extra Virgin Olive Oils and fresh herbs. His pizza base are hand tossed and the sauce are home made. Baked to perfection, Chef Lim's pizza creations must be one of the tastiest pizza I have ever tasted. (The Pizza ala Sicilian is a must try (contains beef pepperoni))

Restorante Bravo Italiana is also well stocked with your favourite Italian vintages. However, the most favourite accompaniment to your meal would be the desserts after meal. Again Chef Lim made the desserts himself. The most popular and signature dessert in the restorante is the Tiramisu , made to perfection. with its soft creamy center. Other desserts like the key lime pie, Italian mousse, Bravo zabaglione, sweet pumpkin pie are also favourites

Bravo Italiana also offers affordable set lunches (dine in only) includes Chicken Parmigiana, served with soup of the day, garlic bread, iced lemon tea and ice-cream starting from RM13.80. The restorante is suitable for all ages and whatever the occasions may be.
