Garibaldi in Kuala Lumpur

Award-winning fine dining Italian restaurant in Bangsar Village

* Garibaldi have been closed
Tucked away in Bangsar Village, Garibaldi KL is an award-winning Italian restaurant with a menu that offers the best of Italy, with classic dishes well represented. The formula for its success is simple: impeccable, modern Italian food utilising top-quality ingredients, reasonable prices, clued-in staff, contemporary decor, and great views.

The place is divided into two dining areas: downstairs is a bar (Garibar) with a separate menu and a more casual dining atmosphere, while upstairs is Garibaldi’s main dining room and four private rooms. The above-a-pub setting makes it well suited to young professionals and its interior design is elegant. The main dining hall is a sizeable space in shades of asparagus green, with white tablecloths, black carpeting and floor-to-ceiling windows providing the place with much natural light during the day and offering great people-watching opportunities.

The wine list at Garibaldi is exceptional and extensive, think reds and whites that cater to all budgets: stop the in-house sommelier for suggestions to pair up with each course. Service is faultless with neatly-aproned staff members who are fast, efficient and know the carte du jour like the back of their hand.

The man putting out the peerless Italian dishes at Garibaldi is Executive Chef Giuliano Berta, a friendly fellow who is more than happy to spare a few moments to talk with us before we see him rushing off to supervise the kitchen. When our food comes out, we realise that attention to detail has made Chef Giuliano an inimitable master of culinary endeavours.

Every meal begins with tasty, complimentary cheese-crusted bread that whets our appetite. The first starter of the night is Napoli-style baked eggplant with mozzarella, basil and tomato sauce (RM28) and at first bite we are hooked. The tart tomato sauce and mild mozzarella flavour perfectly complement the eggplant, creating a creamy, melt-in-your-mouth dish that is an immediate success with everyone at the table.

Next up beef tenderloin carpaccio with shaved parmigiano cheese and rucola salad (RM38) – the impossibly plump, tender beef strips are mildly ‘seasoned’ by the pungent parmigiano cheese, leaving the juicy meat taste well enough alone.

Since there are only two of us dining at Garibaldi that night, we select three main courses: roasted lamb (RM90) and a classic Bolognese (RM36) respectively, and gnocchi (RM36) to share. The lamb loin seasoned with herbs is a pure delight: sitting on a bed of breaded juicy Portobello mushrooms and red wine sauce, we savour every bite of this dish. In stark contrast the Bolognese is nothing to shout about – homemade fettuccine tossed with minced beef ragu in tomato sauce, this dish is a little too bland. However, the gnocchi puts us back in high spirits – each potato dumpling with walnut and gorgonzola cheese sauce is truly memorable and will have you pencilling in your next visit to Garibaldi before you have even finished the meal.

It seems almost impossible but Chef Giuliano excels even more when it comes to desserts: each spoonful of the signature tiramisu (RM25) is an explosion of rich flavour, but cioccolato (RM28), a warm molten lava chocolate cake with smooth hazelnut gelato and sharp-tasting raspberry coulis has us practically standing up mid-meal to applaud his skills.

Last on the dessert train for this dinner party is the classic pannacotta (RM22): the velvety, bourbon vanilla-flavoured pudding is given a sweet yet tangy kick with marinated strawberries in aged balsamic vinegar on the side – simply sublime! The fair pricing for a fine dining venue sets Garibaldi apart: we highly recommend you visit for the outstanding value three-course set lunches (RM45).
