Just this afternoon I had the opportunity to sample some of Garibaldi’s food as Garibaldi was hosting lunch for the Bangsar Village’s “Kids” for Kids” foundation & Supercars Charity Drive.

Lunch was served buffet-style, starting with a row of appetisers.

As expected for an Italian restaurant, pastas and pizzas were the “main courses” for the buffet.

Being pork – free, we were deprived of the swine but were served delicious chicken “roulade” with stuffing & mash instead.

The pizzas here were wonderfully crisp, with each bite releasing delectable aroma of freshly made dough. Light, crusty & smeared with fresh sweet tomato base, all of us enjoyed the pizzas, regardless of its topping.

The few desserts at the buffet were the Tiramisu, which was disappointingly alcohol-free, the sublime flourless almond Choc Cake with Vanilla Sauce & the fruits with cream.

The menu in Garibaldi is pretty simple for now. There are 4 pages for food; one each for appetisers, (which includes one soup – the Minestrone), pizzas, pastas and desserts.
There are a total of 10 types of pizzas, 12 preparations of pasta (but with choices of only spaghetti, linguini and penne), & lastly, 8 types of desserts.

Lunch was generally pleasant & all of us loved the pizzas. Some of the food we had were similar to the ones on the menu while some were not. Also, the kitchen is still work-in-progress. Hence, to be fair, I won’t go into details on describing the food as yet. Watch out for my review once I have an actual ala- carte meal here. 😉

Meanwhile, I have also checked out the Singapore’s Garibaldi site & I do hope the menu here will expand soon to match the Singapore’s extensive one!

    ok it works now. wanted to ask. looks expenso . and srsly. Ms Demanding (aka Girlfriend) tends to not want to subsititute material wealth with a good meal. meh.
    But the food looks good. also i wanted to make fun of the way you pronounce Tiramisu.

    Presence of pork is really not needed unless it is just unique. Parma anyone?

    other than that, meh, pork is just simple one of those versatile meats that i can use to make into anything else.

    Whoa, so fast already posted arr Becky?! Please give me at least a month to sort out ‘teething’ issues as well as letting the restaurant settle down. I won’t be inviting anyone in for at least a month for reviews just yet! ^_^ Bear with me ya.

  7. Marcus Wong

    but, your pockets are deeper than mine (mine are full of other crap like knives and junk)
    so i will take your reviews with a grain of salt. (cos salt is cheaper :P)

    and fussy yes very much so. am not sure about the non pretentiousness but i agree with the fussy a lot. a lot.

    1. rebeccasaw
