The name says it all for Little Italy – it serves Italian dishes based on traditional recipes and pizzas baked in authentic stone oven for that special taste. An award-winning restaurant from Sabah Tourism Board for its fantastic dishes, it is the pride of Kota Kinabalu city, Sabah as one of the main places for bringing guests and family for a sumptuous meal. Don’t worry about the Italian names of teh choices in the menu as your waitress will guide you through for a truly satisfying gastronomical experience.
There are eight appetizers to choose from and another five choices in the Spring Pasta that more than overwhelm patrons. Those in favour of home-made, classical recipes can opt for one of the fifteen styles of pasta they have here. When it comes to pizzas, the choices are again amazing; select your favourite sauce for the crispy crust and whatever else on top as the cheese comes in generous portions!
Main courses here are a delight for food lovers as the tender slices of New Zealand beef fillet (Filleto ai funghi) in fresh mushroom sauce melts in the mouth. Grilled lamb chops and chicken dishes make the varieties available here even more difficult to decide on the choice which explains why many patrons are repeat customers back for more sampling of the courses found in the menu. Fresh ingredients and daily-prepared pastas and sauces are the secret behind the great taste as the family run business only wants the best for their customers.
Nothing beats the great taste of daily fresh cooking which is a proud tradition of Little Italy and everyone compliments the size of the servings, which are simply large!
