  • Villa Danieli Restaurant in Sheraton Imperial Hotel KL

    Award winning Italian restaurant in Kuala Lumpur


    Villa Danieli restaurant never lets you down, be it in terms of the food or service. The award-winning eatery easily creates a meal to remember, with highly professional, friendly staff delivering small plate masterpieces ranging from pastas to fresh fish. The food is complemented by opulent, inspiring interior design, in grand European Art Deco tradition. Think extravagant Italian trattoria with vaulted ceilings painted with gorgeous murals, ornate columns and plush baroque carpeting, and you are on the right track.   

    There is certainly an air of glamour to this dining room in the five-star Sheraton Imperial Hotel Kuala Lumpur, but it manages to avoid feeling pretentious, with a diverse crowd of families, couples and work colleagues.

  • The carefully-seasoned food at Villa Danieli draws on Chef Alessandro Graziosi’s culinary expertise, pushing boundaries by blending seasonal, local produce with western-influenced dishes consistently full of flavour.

    We start with intensely-flavoured baked mozzarella burrata (RM48), served with a side of Mediterranean-style roasted cherry tomatoes – soft and savoury, it proves to be a great introduction to the meal. Meanwhile the RM38 wild mushroom soup, gently flavoured with truffled crispy Shimeji mushrooms and ricotta cheese mousse is similarly impressive. For mains, we indulge in the thoroughly-inventive Australian beef sirloin (RM238), with sautéed mushrooms, poached quail eggs, Toma cheese and truffle fondue – it has perfectly-seared skin encasing fleshy meat that practically melts in the mouth. Conversely, the RM 56 ravioli stuffed with boiled spinach and ricotta cheese has zesty flavour, with walnut sauce balancing out the savoury cheese.

    The collection of Santa Margherita wines is so impressive, you wonder where they keep it all, ranging from cheery glasses designed to complement the food, to splash-out showcase affairs fit to savour on their own. Meanwhile floor staff are pleasant and professional, yet response time may be a little slow, but since the beautifully crafted food arrives with such grace and flair, this can be forgiven easily.

    All in all, Villa Danieli is certainly a restaurant that further ups the ante for other eateries on the popular Jalan Sultan Ismail street.
