Authentic Italian Brunch
Sunday brunch is wonderful. All of the food has been prepared with great care by Chef Franco and his team, who are committed to authentic Italian style. He is there cutting parma ham, serving risotto, ravioli and pizza and still has time to chat with the guests. Very fresh seafoods and perfectly cooked meats. We will be back again soon.

An old dog can learn more tricks, a lot more tricks!
We regularly frequent the restaurants at the Shangri-La, since they are so convenient for us. Two years ago, we went to Rosso’s twice, looked at each other and said, ‘never again’. The menu was boring, the restaurant empty (may-be there was a correlation?!) the wine list mediocre (even for Indonesia), though the service was very nice. Then a strange thing happened, a friend of ours, a bona fide foodie went to Rosso’s with his wife and........loved it. We checked that we were really talking about the same restaurant, so forget our previously firm decision, off we went to Rosso. We are very glad we did. The chef has changed, the food quality has jumped tremendously, the Sunday brunch is sinful, yet delicious, and best of all, the chef prepares a special pasta in a Parma wheel every Sunday or on special occasions. After our surprise, we went there for a romantic New Year’s Eve dinner, and we enjoyed ourselves very much. The food stations have excellent seafood, salads, pasta, on New Year’s Eve, there was even a foie gras station (everybody in our party was salivating, though this writer would have preferred a pate foie gras. Did I mention, everybody in my party was scolding me for not having the proper foie gras taste maturity?). Wine pairing is possible, and it was well matched, the service continues to be excellent. If you go, though it is a near impossible task, save some room for dessert. At least try, since there are several fresh tarts, mousse, and tiramisu. I recommend to fast 48 hours before and after, it is that good. We definitely turned into devote customers, though my waistline prohibits me to go there too often.

Italian Fine Dinning
Located inside Shangrila hotel Jakarta. We had business dinner here. However, the waitress who served us seems new and don’t understand the menu completely. So she needs to ask other waiter for explanation. Room interior is still very nice. I was here 5 or 6 years ago with customers. In my memory, it has not changed a lot since then. It fits for a fine dining restaurant. We ordered pizza, different small pasta selection in one big plate and beef lasagna. Food taste is ok but nothing really special.
