Quality Italian Cuisine @ Porto Romano, TTDI

Porto Romano is an Italian restaurant that has been around for quite some time and has now three branches in Klang Valley. Only until recently we paid the restaurant a visit when the parent-in-law were in town.
We went to the TTDI original branch at around 7pm and it was pretty packed, especially with Malay customers waiting to break fast. Luckily we have a table reserved earlier!
'Romantic' ambience! 
The restaurant itself isn't very big, but with dimmed light and definitely cozy atmosphere I must say. I especially love the use of old movie and book posters as the main decor in the restaurant.
The menu is quite extensive, from Italian to Spanish and even Greek dishes are available. So we made our choices...
Chili Prawns, RM19.
Four Season Pizza, RM32.
We shared the Chili Prawns which was simply delicious! Fresh prawns with the nice fragrant from the minced garlic, chili and parsley made the dish a really good starter for more good food to come! Dip the breads given into the little chili oil and oh Mama Mia!!! The Four Season Pizza was not bad too, I especially love the ham but it wasn't the best pizza I've tried.
Lasagna, RM26.
Moussaka, RM38.
Seafood Spaghetti, RM30.
Seafood Rissoto, RM32.
Here comes our mains... MIL had the Lasagna which was a little disappointing as it tasted almost like what you can get from the frozen department in supermarket. Compared to that, we all prefer FIL's Moussaka, a traditional Greek dish that look almost like a Lasagna. With cheese layers and minced lamb as the main ingredients, the dish is something very new to us with an interesting twist in terms of both the texture and taste. Seafood Spaghetti was pretty awesome too with a tomato paste that I'm assuming homemade cos it tasted not as sweet as pre-packed ones and the seafood were all really fresh and big! I also love my Seafood Rissoto that comes in a white wine sauce and again fresh seafood! 
A quiet and enjoyable dinner! :)
With four mains and two sides (oh yea I bet you know we were very full that night), with service charge and government tax, the bill came up to RM205.32, which is actually pretty reasonable! Definitely worth a second visit! :)
