De luca Plaza Senayan : authentic and tasty Italian

A Thursday afternoon could be a busy one.
Like yoga class and four-hours meeting.
Or it could be a free Thursday, like lingering on comfy bed all day long.
After all those things, all we needed was an enjoyable pretty dinner.

Having an appointment in Senayan could be hard enough in those hours. Traffic jam, full parking lot, crowded restaurant could have been ruining the night. But lucky us, we could find another great place to please our needs.

Located in the center of the basement, De luca could easily attracted people's eyes. It was resided across Monolog, an Australian-style fancy restaurant, and it was one of the busy area in Plaza Senayan.

Their bread compliment was one of my favorite among other restaurants! It was fluffy and sweet. A good opening for the night.

Dory cutlet served with salad and tartar sauce. The sauce was a combination of mayonnaise, chopped pickle, and mustard. Appetizer to save the hungry tummy!

Fettucine with wood-smoked salmon and greens. Al dente pasta, well-cooked aglio olio sauce, tender salmon. A good plate of fettucine indeed! It was my second favorite compared to all dishes.

Homemade ravioli with beef ragu and mascarpone. The pasta was a bit chewy and the tomato sauce was a little too dominating. The beef was just fine. Not a fan of tomato sauce, so it wasn't the winner.

Risotto al funghi. A plate of well-cooked risotto served with thick sauce with pinch of mushroom. Cooking risotto could be a hard one. Some of them just couldn't make it right. De luca's was such a triumph!

Highlight of the night. Beef and spinach cannelloni topped with mozzarella. Basically cannelloni was a cylindrical type of pasta served with filling and sauce. The pasta was al dente and the beef was tender. The mozzarella on top made it even better. The filling and the sauce was a really great combination to my tongue.

If you're looking for an authentic Italian food, this one could be a great satisfaction. I came here twice and I think there would be another visit. I could come back for their cannelloni (and their bread too! )

Un buon cibo vey, anzi!
