Pizza 3 Salumi
RM 35

Italians are known throughout the world for their pizza, pasta with tomato sauce, and pizza is one of the most popular Italian meals that almost everyone loves. Well, with this in mind, of course, the first course to order has to be their PIZZA!

The first-of-its-kind speciality in the neighbourhood, Passione's wood-fired pizzas relive the age-old Italian method of making pizzas by hand and baking under high heat in brick ovens. At the high heat of up to 400℃ allows for better heat distribution and caramelisation of ingredients infusing a natural smoky aroma for its authentic Italian pizza.

The Pizza 3 Salumi comes with toppings of savoury fresh homemade tomato sauce, spicy salami, honey ham, salsiccia (Italian sausage), onions, and generous toppings of mozzarella cheese before being baked till golden brown. 

The wood oven baked crispy crusted pastry was filled with a generous amount of cheese baked to perfection to a perfect crunch. Loved it especially when this was served piping hot, warm to bite, with a perfectly crisp exterior and just the right amount sauce and toppings.

 Spaghetti Aglio Olio & Peperoncino
RM 20  
With Add-Ons - Bacon RM 5, Mushroom RM 2 & Grilled Chicken RM 2 

Happiness comes in all forms of satisfaction. For me, it comes in the form of a good meal. Just like this simple but absolutely delicious Spaghetti Aglio Olio & Peperoncino dish in their menu. Chef Stefano, a true blue Italian, insists that pasta should only be enjoyed fresh and handmade on the day itself.

Dining here you get to savour the moist, aromatic and flavourful pasta transporting one back to the pleasant simplicity of a Italian cooking. The homemade spaghetti was really delicious, tossed in garlic and chilli infused with extra virgin olive oil.

With Add-Ons - Bacon, Mushroom & Grilled Chicken
RM 29

The spaghetti dish combined with the generous amount of our chosen add-ons ingredients such as bacon, mushroom and grilled chicken made this another comfort food candidate indeed.  I liked the part where diners get to choose from the variety of add-ons ingredients that includes bacon, mushroom, prawn, grilled chicken or sausage.

In this way, the diner gets to choose and pick their favourite food thus making it an easy, tasty, comfort food - nothing short of heavenly. 

Rolle' Di Pollo Alla Paprika Con Bouquet Di Verdure  
RM 32

Next, we ordered the main - a chicken dish that comes with ratatouille vegetables. The dish 'Ratatouille' was made famous by an animated movie about a little cute mouse named Remy who dreams of becoming a famous chef despite being a rat in a definitely rodent-phobic profession.  

The name of the dish in Italian is quite a mouthful -  Rolle' Di Pollo Alla Paprika Con Bouquet Di Verdure but basically it's a baked chicken dish of rolled chicken breast dumpling in red paprika stuffed with honey ham, red capsicum and heavenly smoked cheese. Comes served with ratatouille and broccoli on the side.

This is another winner in its own right. The chicken was flavourful, juicy and tender and I suspect that chef must have cooked it sous-vide style before grilling it in the oven for the light crisp on the outside. The savoury fillings of honey ham and smoked cheese enhanced the taste and texture making this a very delectable dish indeed.  

I have a wonderful experience dining at Passione Ristorante Italiano for real authentic and value for money Italian dishes served here. Chef Stefano also makes sure that his patrons get generous portions and this is evident in all the dishes we tasted today.

For amazing Italian cuisine at reasonable prices, do drop by and come to Passione Ristorante Italiano, the little pizza and pasta heaven in Seri Petaling now. And of course, buon appetito!
