Going Gaga over Delucca

We received an invite for Delucca's 2nd Anniversary celebration recently and being there some time back we decided to drop by to see what was new. Friendly waiters greeted us at the entrance and asked if we had reservations and so we said we were there for a dinner party. (Doubt began to creep into my mind when we saw no sign of a party inside. Had I gotten the date wrong?) To our surprise, we were ushered in to privately dine with Delucca's Director, Mr Firas Sowiedan. The invite did mention celebrating WITH Mr Sowiedan but we didn't expect to have his full attention in a one-to-one (well one-to-two) dining session! It was indeed a very pleasant surprise.

We talked about everything from how Delucca got its name (Delucca was born out of the heart and passion of its owners who fell in love with the Tuscan city of Lucca,and they wanted a name easily remembered hence the name Delucca was created)to his love for Japan and its people. (He was planning to go there just before the devastating earthquake and had to cancel his trip) The ambiance at Delucca gives a sense of belonging. One is wrapped in color, soothing mood and is gastronomically satisfied with modern Italian food unique to Delucca!

Delucca, located off Jalan Nagasari, is surrounded by the buzz of city workers and shopping tourists which continues to add to the pulse of our restaurant where all friends and visitors always take a little piece of Delucca back home. About 45 minutes went by before we decided we were ready to eat. Looking at the menu we were spoilt for choice. Everything looked good! I decided to have my favourite (and predictable!) Spaghetti Bolognaise and had no regrets. It was really superbly flavoured with its generous offering of meat gravy.

As the night grew later, and our stomachs getting heavier, we prepared to call for the bill when Mr Sowiedan insisted that the meal was on the house. Well! What a great marketing strategy to get to know his clients personally. We sure will remember him when it comes to good food and service!

What's to look forward to at Delucca you ask? Chef Arnold brings a whole new food ideology to Delucca. His creations are unique and showcase the freshest of local produce blended perfectly to make their menu something truly special.

Their daily buffet lunch provides the busy executive with a flavorful array of Mediterranean salads, freshly baked breads & daily specials, which at a set price, is the place to be for your next business lunch.

From lunch Delucca transitions into the perfect place for exclusive dining experiences where the focus is on relaxation while you wind down after a busy day over Delucca creations all of which are infused with superb flavors and elegant balance. Their island bar is surrounded by the most versatile space in Kuala Lumpur. With 3,600 square feet, space for 100-seated guests and 200-standing, Delucca is the venue of choice for your next event. Having already hosted several major charity events, star-studded birthday parties that saw the restaurant completely transformed into a wonderland of delight, wine tasting dinners, product launches and album releases as well as live performances from international and local artists, such as Anita Sarawak, the Five n Dime band, David Gomes & Junji Delfino and Poova Plachciak, Delucca will rise to the occasion every time.

Your time at Delucca is not only a pleasurable experience but also a convenient one. With five levels of basement parking at the Somerset Office Tower, an auto pay system and a single charge of RM3 for entry after 6pm, getting in and out of Delucca is a breeze.
