Thanks to invite from Adeline & Mei Yien, who manage the marketing for Passione Ristorante Italiano, the one and only Italian restaurant in Sri Petaling, I get to savour a delicious meal in an area which is mostly known for chinese food. This restaurant is under Butbo Group, which has 2 other more widely known sisters bakery/restaurant: Le Pont Boulangerie and Xenri.

This Italian restaurant is situated in corner shoplot just next to The Store, Sri Petaling.

Stepping inside the restaurant, we are greeted by beautiful stairway leading to the upper floor dining area.


On the right end, there is their wood fired oven, imported all the way from Italy.


Going up to the upper floor dining area. To the right is a private dining area which has 2 long dining tables, available for private party’s booking.


Closer look of the private dining area, for big group of party.


On the group floor, there is a cold cut fridge, ie bresaola, porcetta, parma ham, speck, salami etc.


Open kitchen on the upper floor.


Antipasti menu


mains and pizza menu


salad, soup and pasta menu


dessert menu


non-alcohol drinks menu. They do serve many types of alcohol like Prosecco (an Italian white wine), cocktails, red wine. Their bar is one of the most dazzling i have seen. (Picture of the bar is available in their website)


Ambassasor Set meal


Chef Specials.


Ice lemon tea


We are first served with crusty bread with 2 dippings: left is olive paste, the right is balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Nice warm crusty bread, wish there is more of it 🙂


Next is parmigiana di Melanzane (RM 25). Layers of sliced eggplant cooked in a small pot till golden brown, topped with tomato sauce, mozarella, basil and grana padano cheese. Yummy! The mozarella cheese taste meaty (as they put lots of it), and pair well with the eggplant.


Next is a dish which looks and taste like beef, but it is not. Stracetti Di Pluma Iberco Al Balsamico (RM 79), Iberico pork sous vide-d and grilled, the meat is very tender. Yummy, and pair well with the slightly bitter arugula leave.


House made pasta with fresh mussels, shrimp, baby cuttlefish and squid served with chili & garlic oil (RM 35) The pasta texture is good, and they are some cute small yummy squid in it.


Stinco Di Maiale Arrosto (RM68), pork knuckle which has been seared, baked for 3 hours, vacuum sealed, and sous vide, very tender as well. It doesn’t looks big in above picture, but the portion is huge, 4 of us did not managed to finish it.


Chef Stefano preparing pizza for us.


Wood fire oven, it takes only about 4 minutes for the pizza to be cooked, as the wood fire oven can be heated to about 400 Celcius.


Chef Stefano putting the finishing touch to the pizza.


Margharita pizza (RM26) yum yum yum, the pizza is baked thin crust, pair with the saltiness from generous mozarella. This is the most basic pizza, but it is simple done right, yum! A good meatless option as well for those who prefer non-meat option.


Lastly, sweet ending, Tiramisu (RM24), the alcohol is light, to cater for children as well. Wish there is more of this, yum!


Before we left, we are allowed into their kitchen to see how Chitarra Spaghetti (originates from Abruzzo in Italy) are prepared. A sheet of pasta is placed on top of the wooden pasta maker with thin strands of metal strand on top, then the sheet of pasta is pressed with the rolling pin from the top, and out comes strands of pasta at the bottom.


Overall, the meal is yummy, and we throughly enjoy the food and the impecabble service and warm hospitality of chef Stefano. Go try!

Menu: They current have a set called SIMPLE MAJORITY platter (RM 222) – The platter was simply created to represent the number of seats that were taken part in this year’s GE 14.

The set contains a bit of everything, good for sharing: signature bbq spare ribs, naughty cheesy sausage, crispy baconlicious strips, crispy roast pork, cheesy nachos, cheesy truffle fries, mini mix salad, satay lilit.


Menu for Mother’s day, it is a slightly smaller menu, pricing may differs from their regular menu.


drinks menu


Yum yum, we start of with their signature roast pork salad (RM32). Refreshing vege with yummy crackling roast pork, the dressings has hints of lemongrass.


4 of us shared this lemongrass ginger fizz RM28.8, nice ginger-y drink.


Beautiful Indonesian style nasi goreng (RM30), we wiped this clean as well.


The notorious beef short rib (RM48), meat is tender, portion is very huge, 4 of us couldn’t finish this, this dish is served with their 4 sambals: sambal hijau, fiery red sambal, porky sambal, and coco sambal pedas. Spicy and very filling!


Naughty Nuri BBQ satay lilit (RM30) There are 5 pieces, this is served piping hot, yum!


For those who prefer not so meaty meal (like I am), they have salmon (RM40), available with fries or mashed potato. Yum, loves the grilled vegetables.


Finally dessert, i was a bit hesitant to try out their dessert, because dislike sugary sweet dessert. Surprisingly, both their dessert has just enough sweetness to let the rest of the flavor shine through. Above is volcano oreo cheesecake (RM30). It doesn’t look or taste like cheesecake. For me, it taste is similar to bread & butter pudding with soft cookie-like texture. When served, alcohol was pour on it, and it is flambe-ed (as seen below), the cake is chilled, tasty when eaten with the sizzling sauce on the hot plate, we polished this off.



Not satisfy with just one dessert, we had their sizzling bacon chocolate cake.  Above is the chocolate cake, server then will pour chocolate sauce on the hot plate (and it sizzlesssss, see below). This is my favourite cake among the 2 cakes, the cake is more tender. And same as cheesecake, just enough sweetness, not that sweet at all which suits my tastebud perfectly 😛



Currently they have on going promotion as above: RM 1 ribs. With a purchase of RM 135 (no.of seats won) in a single receipt, customers will be entitled to purchase their signature 1995 bbq ribs at only RM 1 (worth rm49). Very good deal!

They are also having Teacher’s Day promotion: Naughty Nuris’ teacher day

Must try in Naughtly Nuri: roast pork salad, satay lilit, sizzling bacon chocolate cake.
