Do you know?
When it comes to romance, lusty Italian food is an aphrodisiac.
From pasta to pizza to antipasti, there’s an extensive library of Italian recipes and food that offers the best of this Mediterranean cuisine.
And the diverse cuisine of Italy is showcased at Neroteca.
A non-halal restaurant situated in Lorong Ceylon, they specialize in authentic Italian dishes with pork. A small place with a long interior, wall-to-wall wine displays, with hanging salami, pots & pans. Love its cosy & warm atmosphere. Composed appetizers and entrees echo the rustic charms of the restaurant’s design, this Italian restaurant serves wholesome food and they buy imported meats and cheeses from Italy every week!
The staffs were very friendly and attentive too 🙂
Wine & Dine
Complimentary fresh garlic bread.
The real deal of garlic bread is served here. Spread the roasted garlic on the bread! Yum! I almost finished the whole basket LOL.
Affettati Misti – RM78
A platter of 8 different selections of cold cuts. This would be a no brainer dish to start off with as we get to try the different cuts of meat that they are famous for.
Caesar Salad – RM28
Baby romaine lettuces, sliced roasted chicken breast, parmesan cheese & toasted foccacia with caesar dressing. My mom’s favourite order.
Half Suckling Pig – RM180 (Please call to pre-order)
Beautiful, thin crispy skin that breaks easy. Plus, the meat itself is delightfully juicy. We enjoyed it just like this. Simple with no additional seasoning. Served with sides of lentils & roasted potatoes.
However, our preference of suckling pig is still with El Cerdo. Crispier & more fragrant skin texture (looks more golden brown exteriorly).
Ravioli Tirolesi – RM30
Stuffed with homemade sausage, speck & light creamy walnut sauce. So rich & flavoursome with every mouthful of aromatic nutty aftertaste.
Spaghetti ai Gamberi – RM36
Sauteed prawns, mushrooms, rocket & pork bacon in fresh tomato sauce. No complaints as the prawns were very fresh and paired great the the sweet, sourish & savoury sauce.
Risotto con Funghi – RM32
Italian staple with mixed mushrooms & green peas. This rice dish is cooked in flavoursome broth to a creamy consistency. Packed full of flavour 🙂
Merluzzo – RM68
Baked cod fish with mussels, asparagus, tiger prawns, cherry tomatoes & bacon. This dish was just mediocre as the empowering sauce have masked the seafood’s freshness.
Daily Special: Risotto with Pan seared Foie Gras – RM78
Off the menu, it was one of their daily special during our visit. Risotto wise, our order of Risotto con Funghi has a more dense flavour and so we preferred that. But the foie gras was seared perfectly. Melt-in-your-mouth buttery texture? You got it!
Will definitely return for more Italian fix and succumb into the romantic ambiance again.
