Filling my Tummy @ Italian on Sixth, 6th floor Pavilion, Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur

>> Feb 26, 2010

The Restaurant has Closed for Good...

When dining at a friend's place the other day, I happened to stumble across this magazine that listed all the so called 'top restaurants' in Malaysia. Under the Italian category, I noticed this placed 'Italian on Sixth' in Pavilion. Since I happened to be in Pavilion for Chinese New Year shopping a couple of weeks ago, I stopped by Italian on Sixth for lunch.

Italian on Sixth

Although situated on the 6th floor of pavilion, the pricing seemed quite appropriate. Then again, pasta and pizza's can't be that expensive to start off with.

Anyway, as we were having 'lunch' at 3.30pm, I wasn't surprised to see that the place was empty except for another table nearby. Service was quite prompt as the staffs probably had nothing to do.

We went for a pizza, a pasta and a meat dish to share among 3 of us. We were served these complimentary cheese sticks that was supposed to be taken with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Cheese Sticks

Frankly, I didn't like the bread sticks at all. There were too hard and appeared to be pre-packed. I rather they had served us freshly baked bread or something along that line.

Pizza with Pancetta and Salami

Pancetta is sort off like an Italian version of bacon. The pizza was quite good. It was laden generously with lots of streaky chunks of fatty ham and salami. The pizza was priced at RM25.50.

Pork Ribs

The ribs were alright. They fell off the bone at the touch of the fork. The taste certainly didn't disappoint. However, it wasn't the best I've tasted in KL. However, I found the dish a little too sweet. I guess this is where personal preference comes in. The ribs were priced at RM40.

Spaghetti Agio Olio with Seafood

This is one of their highly recommended dish. The presentation for this dish was a winner. The spaghetti came wrapped up nicely like a goodies bag. The waiter/waitress would then slowly unseal the top of the nice bag to reveal its hidden treasures within. It was a shame to destroy that nice 'object'. The pasta was priced at RM40.

However, I would have to declare that the taste for this dish was only so-so. Okay, maybe I have high expectations as I can dish out a very good seafood aglio olio myself. Hence, I like to compare if a pasta of that sort was as good or better than mine.

To complete the meal, I went for the tiramisu. My personal opinion is that Tiramisu is the most basic dessert an Italian restaurant needs to master. After all, some people say the origins of tiramisu was from Siena (lots of people are laying claims to the invention of this dish).


The tiramisu at this place was very good. It was presented so nicely on that plate that I was hesitant to cut it open to begin with. Anyway, I was quite satisfied with this dish. The tiramisu was RM16.50.

My conclusion is that Italian on Sixth would make a very good place to bring that special someone. Italian food is very popular among Malaysians. This place is not crazily expensive, create food that has a hell of a presentation and service is reasonable. I wouldn't mind coming back to this place again.

Restaurant Rating: 7.5/10 (I tend to rate Italian Restaurant a little harsher)
Pricing: About RM50 per person
Food Quality: 7/10
Ambience: 8/10
Service: 7/10
Pricing: quite appropriate
