Fashion Pasta (Jakarta)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars)
 
Fashion Pasta is a famous Italian restaurant in Bandung, and they opened their first franchise restaurant in Jakarta in the middle of 2011. The owner is Italian, but the management and the cook for the Jakarta branch are Indonesian.

Located in Citywalk Sudirman, it is easily one of the best restaurant in this mall, and I predict it will expand soon to other venues.

The menu, the quality of the food and the prices are very similar to that of Trattoria or PEPeNERO. The main difference I found is that the interior design of Fashion Pasta is cozier and more modern. In that sense, it looks like Sopra, in Pacific Place (much less expensive though).

We tried the following dishes:
Brushetta Pomodoro e Basilico (Rp28k++)
Pizza ai Funghi (Rp45k++)
Minestrone soup (Rp35k++)
Spaghetti Aglio, Olio e Tonno (Rp46k++)
The food was good considering the price. I would have liked my pizza to be a little more crusty, but it was fresh, and much better than in other restaurants in Jakarta. I had only one bite of the pasta, which seemed a bit dry, but tasted fine. Nothing to complain about concerning the minestrone and the bruschetta.
Overall: Recommended. Fashion Pasta is not a fine dining restaurant, but they serve very decent food at a fair price. They use fresh (organic when possible) ingredients in all their preparation and their dough is home-made, I only wish more venues in Jakarta could adopt the same principles.

Opening Hours:
Everyday from 10am to 10pm (midnight on weekends). It is quite small so make a reservation if you come with a large group during peak hours.
