Superman Pizza (Seminyak Bali)

By Jakarta100bars →
Superman Pizza is a locally-run restaurant on Jalan Drupadi, Seminyak. They serve mostly pastas and pizzas, cooked in a wood-fired oven.  Superman, the owner of the restaurant, is an easy-going Balinese who chats with guests, take orders, and manage the place in his own way. As a result, the quality of your service or your food is not always consistent. They also often run out of ingredients or drinks. The staff was friendly, but Kuta-style, calling you "dude" or "bro", which is not my kind of thing. Australians and surfers would feel more comfortable probably. Romana Pizza (Rp65,000+15%) The pizza I tried was good (Romana Rp65,000+15%), very thin and crispy. It could have been better with a bit more tomato sauce and toppings, but I was happy enough. The price is reasonable.

By Jakarta100bars →
Kebun Ziburu is an Italian restaurant owned by a young Italian man, Luigi Calcagno. It is located on Jalan Drupadi in Seminyak, inside a small house with a garden (kebun in Indonesian). I went there on an evening when they had a live Jazz event so it gave me an excellent first impression. The young Italian manager, Mauro Piludu welcomed me personally before taking my food order, which was even nicer. All this gave me high expectations for the food, which did not seem too expensive at first. I had a 3-course meal with Carpaccio di Filetto di Vitella (Rp75,000++), the Zibiru Salad (Rp77,000++) and the Tarte aux Pommes (Apple Tart, Rp42,000++).  Carpaccio

Portabella Restaurant (Hotel Fontana Bali)

By Jakarta100bars →
Portabella is the restaurant located inside Fontana hotel in Bali. In the same location, there is also the 24/7 Sunny Café which I didn't try. I visited Portabella because I was attracted by its design and appearance. I was hoping that it would be the sign of good, authentic Italian food. I was also told the Chef was Italian. Unfortunately I was wrong. The food I tried was really average, the kind you would expect to eat in a food court inside a mall. The service was friendly but the waiters seemed confused about my requests. The complimentary bread was the best part of my meal Beef Carpaccio (70,000rp + 21% tax and service charge) Pizza Capricciosa (79,000rp + 21% tax and service)

Rolling Fork Authentic Italian Restaurant (Bali)

By Jakarta100bars →
Rolling Fork is a cute authentic Italian restaurant located on Jalan Kunti in Seminyak, Bali. It is a good alternative to the more crowded Warung Italia nearby.  It has only a few tables in a warung-like open-air space and it serves all kind of home-made Italian dishes. The owner and Chef,  Roberta Valentino,  is an Italian lady who is in her early 20s. She greets guests personally and do not hesitate to go chat at their tables. Her partner Fabrizio Candi is also there, sometimes with friends, which gives  Rolling Fork the impression it is more than just a restaurant.

Sirenetta Authentic Italian Restaurant - Bali

By Jakarta100bars →
Sirenetta is an Italian restaurant recently opened in Jalan Petitenget in Seminyak, Bali. It is owned by an Italian man from Napoli, the city where the original pizza comes from. The place looks simple but authentic. It serves wood-fired oven pizzas, pastas and a few other international main courses. We had a Margarita Pizza (Rp45,000 +10%) and a Tuna Steak (I forgot the price but it was rather cheap).

Bella Italia Restaurants (Bali)

By Jakarta100bars →
Bella Italia is an authentic Italian restaurant with currently 2 locations in Kuta Bali (Jalan Kartika Plaza and Jalan Poppies II). Both are rather small, with an AC indoor area and an outdoor area. They are simply decorated to look like the kind of typical, casual restaurant that you could certainly find almost everywhere in Italy.  I visited Bella Italia after hearing some good comments from friends who assured me it was one of the best places for Italian food in Kuta. The owner is Italian, and he is on the floor almost every night, hosting and serving guests. I saw a second Italian man helping as well, probably a partner. 

Trattoria Italian Restaurant Jakarta

By Jakarta100bars →
Trattoria is an excellent, good-value Italian restaurant in Indonesia . Except for their steaks, most of the dishes in Trattoria are very affordable and taste just as good as in Europe. That's very rare in Jakarta! I have been a regular for a few years already, for every occasion: Lunch with colleagues, dinner with friends, dates, etc.. It used to be full of expatriates, but now you will find most customers are Indonesians. The service is very friendly and efficient, and very often, you'll see the Italian manager (or owner?) around.
