Are you in the mood for some hearty Italian food? My latest 'discovery' is an Italian Restaurant called Gusto Giusto at Glenmarie in Shah Alam.

Start of my healthy meal with a rich appetizer called the Antipasto. Antipasto means "before the meal" and is the traditional first course of a formal Italian meal. Traditional antipasto includes cured meats, olives, peperoncini, mushrooms, anchovies, artichoke hearts, various cheeses, pickled meats and vegetables.

This is a mixed platter of olives, mozzarella cheese, sun dried tomatoes, green peas and corns. The whole combination was really tasty and agreed with my taste buds. I was never a fan of green peas, but somehow I didn't mind eating them in this dish. Well, remember to kick off a good meal with the naturally delicious Antipasto!

Happiness comes in all forms of satisfaction. For me, it's comes in the form of a good meal. Cooked to perfection, it was my favourite and not to be missed. The sauce was exception rich and creamy, absolutely heavenly for any pasta lovers. 

Simply irresistible with a strong hint of the truffle oil, it came in a generous serving of thick truffle cream. This dish has a robust aroma to it. The fragrance from the aromatic truffle oil was just mouth-watering.

Value For Money Spaghetti 
RM 8

Traditional Spaghetti Bolognese is a real winner for me. It has ground beef/chicken, lots of garlic, mushrooms, onions and cheeses, plus Gusto Giusto's own special tomato meat sauce which Chef Alik made from scratch everyday.

 Simple and Good Spaghetti Bolognese  

The spaghetti was really delicious, combined with the generous amount of meat sauce that made this another comfort food candidate indeed. Price is a steal, guarantee won’t burn a hole in your pocket as it costs only RM 8 per serving which I believe you can't find anywhere else in KL/PJ.
