Signora Pasta

Spending Saturday night, we chose this one place we have always curious about, Signora Pasta at Entertainment Center Bintaro.

The place was crowded. Almost full, with only 2 tables left, we chose the non smoking area, though the air conditioner was a bit too much.

I was impressed with the ambience. Dominated with brown in color and soft happy music in the background. Foods and beverages were sent out almost non stop.

The waiter quickly took our orders, which were Frittura Mista, prawn and calamari fritters, Capricciosa, mushrooms, capers with beef pizza, and a Penne Al Salmone, penne with cream sauce and salmon. As for the beverage, we both ordered a Bunga-Bunga, mix of lemongrass, lemon and a bit ginger (I think).

Frittura Mista


Penne Al Salmone


It was, all, delicious.
I like best the texture of the pizza bread. It was in between crusty and doughy. The calamari and prawn were also perfectly fried. Unfortunately, the dipping was not as tasteful as the fries. The salmon penne was also tasty and aromatic, with all the herbs sprinkles. But the highlight for tonight, its the Bunga-Bunga. Fresh and it has a warm after taste. And husband ended up with another cup of Bunga-Bunga 🙂

Pasta Gio, The Warung Pasta

In the middle of suburb and quite neighbourhood of Sleman, Jogjakarta, there is this warung (rather small restaurant) Pasta Gio, specialize in pasta. Gio is the chef and the owner, very young as my sister told me he’s still on college. But nowadays, Gio has few sous chefs to help run the place.

The place is totally warung-like. Wood benches and plastic table cloths. But I like the Java-inspired architectural, pendopo style.

I was there several times, as they specialized in, the pasta was good. Should try the chef’s sauce and the alfredo for the pasta.

But last night, I decided to try other menu, which is Beef Medallion with green pasta, onion rings and salad.

Here it was.

Yummy! It was as good as it looked. The beef was tender and well done, the mushroom sauce was spot on, the salad was lightly savory, the onion rings were fresh and light as well, and surprisingly the green pasta was rich of olive oil and had red rawit chili slices on which kick the flavor even more. Overall, its worth the 59k price!

And for desert, I ordered their new menu, red velvet. (I guess, red velvet is the new black on desert :))

For only 20k, this red velvet exceed its price value. The strawberry cake layered with light cream truly brighten your palette after a fulfilling entree. 🙂

This is the one place you need to put on the must-visit-list when you’re in town.
