Pizzolo @ Atria Shopping Gallery: Modern Italian Cuisine [CLOSED DOWN]

Pizzolo Restaurant in Atria Shopping Mall, Damansara Jaya focuses on modern Italian cuisine. Expect Italian favourite like pizza, spaghetti, contorni, pan seared fish, chicken roulade, T-bone steak etc., on Pizzolo menu, partially traditional and with creative touch for some.

Walls made up from rainbow colour square panels, opened kitchen, cocktail bar, patterned floor tiles, custom build banquettes, contrasting colours, studio-like lamps- Pizzolo put together vibrant and colourful shopfront with raw and rustic interior, establishing a cheerful atmosphere for casual, relaxed dining. Business lunch, family dinner, friends gathering, or corporate party, Pizzolo suits all.

As the restaurant ‘s “pizza wooden board” symbol tells, pizza takes the limelight in Pizzolo Modern Italian cuisine. From classic Hawaiian Chicken, Pepperoni Pizza to more innovative fillings Margherita with Buffalo Mozzarella Cheese, Crispy Spinach with Caramelized Onions, Garlic Scampi, South Texas Barbeque Chicken; finer choice of Mushroom and Truffle with Grana Padano Cheese; Cranberry Jam and Cheese pizza that blends in sweet and savoury concoction, and more. A place for pizza lovers.

Hawaiian Chicken Pizza RM30.90

Crispy edge, doughy center is the pizza base style in Pizzolo. Pleasantly baked for a not oily, yet not dry thin crust bread. We sampled three flavours – Sweet Cranberry Jam and Savoury Cheese, South Texas Barbeque Chicken and Hawaiian Chicken, and love Pizzolo South Texas Barbeque Chicken Pizza the most.

South Texas Barbeque Chicken Pizza RM28.90

Caramelized onions, roasted bell peppers, chicken chunks, olives spread together with tomato sauce, topped with cheese. Plenty of textures and flavours, especially sweetness delivered from onions. Just, we hope for more cheese.

Sweet Cranberry Jam and Savoury Cheese RM26.90

Hawaiian Chicken can easily become the crowd favourite, as it is always a safe choice to look for in pizza menu list. However we recommend to try out more interesting pairing when in Pizzolo, like the Cranberry Jam and Cheese Pizza. And yeah, it is good, with balanced dried fruit sweetness and cheesy goodness.

Chilled Tomato, Watermelon and Feta RM17

Fresh watermelon is seen getting more popular in modern dishes nowadays, perhaps thanks to its refreshing taste packed with juicy crunch. We tasted before cubed watermelon dabbed with spicy Thai chilli powder, sliced watermelon on fire-grill, and now in Pizzolo Atria, watermelon with feta cheese, tossed in a various vegetables.

Deep Fried Calamari RM17.90

Pizzolo fares a promising list of appetizer such as Trio of Bruschetta topped with tomato, mushrom & salmon, Crostinit with Mango Cheese & Honey, Americana Crab Cakes with Lemon Garlic Aioli, Deep Fried Calamari, Beef Carpaccio with Balsamic Reduction and Spicy Chicken Balls with Peri-peri Sauce, just to name a few.

Trout Ceviche on Kataifi RM19.90

Trout Ceviche on Kataifi gains our attention, lining up presentable bite-size Ceviche seafood dish on dark colour stone-like serving plate. Tastebud tickling, citrusy filling nestled within crispy “bird nest”.

Wild Mushrom Cappuccino RM14.90

Chunky mushroom soup prepared in-house, blending in few types of mushrooms to achieve a nutritious end result, imparting lots of natural flavours. Vegetarian friendly.

Traditional Italian Clam Chowder RM16.90

We prefer Traditional Italian Clam Chowder for it is more flavourful, rich and creamy, generously laden with fresh clams for extra chews. Served with buttered toasted bread.

Seared Scallops on Avocado Tartar RM25.90

Summergirl said she could have this half-dozen of seared scallops all to herself. A bit of pan-seared smokiness plus bursting juiciness, further complemented by creamy, mushy avocado tartar.

Sea Clams Linguini RM28.90

Spaghetti with Almond, Mint and Pesto, Chicken and Mushroom Cannelloni, Flat Grilled Chicken Linguini, Lobster Fettuccini, Blue Crab Ravioli, Beef Lasagna Pie, Pizzola has a few basic pasta to accompany your pizza meal. Sea Clams Linguini here is executed in healthier version, great for those who love their pasta light but for those who prefer heavier taste, an extra dash of salt will fix the flavour right.

Cannoli Stuffed with Ice Cream RM19.90

Dessert in Pizzolo is limited to cakes, creme brulee, Italian crepe and artisanal ice cream, but sufficient enough to end your meal with a sweet note. Especially recommend their artisanal ice cream, great eating alone of have it enveloped within cannoli, or crepe.

Pizzolo Modern Italian Cuisine will complete their wine range soon, believe will be extensive. In the mean time, enjoy cocktail specially crafted by the mixologist. Dark rum, gin, or vodka infused? You choose.
