Nero Vivo, Changkat Bukit Bintang, Malaysia

Nerovivo is one of my all time favourite Italian spots in KL. The original of the Nero trio, I’m always happy with the variety of dishes on the menu and quality of produce. I love the chic interior and outdoor seating areas, sleek bar and comfy waiting area. You can tell training of staff is a priority as they really do try to be informative, friendly and attentive. I highly recommend asking your waitperson for their suggestions before ordering. They have always steered me in the right direction. Besides a talented chef and investment in good quality ingredients, I think one of the secrets between exceptional Italian cuisine and average food is in the olive oil. It’s in just about every dish so it better be good. At Nerovivo, it’s great. The evening these photos were taken we ate: beef carpaccio – sliced so thinly it dissolved in your mouth without having to chew – topped with parmesan, rocket and balsamic dressing; wild rocket salad – FRESH wild rocket with caramelized onions, sesame seeds, wafer thin radish slices, oven roasted tomatoes with a slightly sweet dressing (winner!); cappelletti stuffed with spinach and ricotta in a sage and butter sauce – sage  & butter unbeatable combo and; lamb rouget parppardelle – flavourful tender pieces of lamb tossed with fat house made pasta.  If you have a sweet tooth be sure to try the tiramisu – Nerovivo has a reputation for making one of the best you can find in town.

  2. hi there,
    Actually, I come to your blog through the Expat Forum Website. I would like to suggest a few places where you can try some new dishes. One of the restaurant is located at Jln Masjid India, on the same row with SOGO and Gulati Silk House. It is next to Gulati. They serve delicious Briyani Rice and mango lassy. But I can not remember the actual name of the restaurant.
    The second one is located in Section 7,Bandar Baru Bangi, they serve Satay Kajang, I think the restaurant name is UK Satay Kajang.
    The third one is also my favourite, located in Bandar Baru Bangi, I can not remember the which section, but the restaurant name is "Mohd Chan Abdullah", they serve delicious Halal Chinese Food. I stay in Kajang, so my recommendation are the restaurants that are near to me.

    Thank you

  4. Sean: I think they're getting close. I've been here 8 1/2 years and I think Nerovivo opened not long after I arrived.

    Masitah: Thanks for the recommendations! I'll have to check these places out. They sound promising and something that I would never find on my own. Thanks again!

  5. 8 1/2 years is pretty long. I thought the head chef went over to BSC Vineria already?

  6. I think, now, I have to go there! To see for myself!
