Bella Rosa acclaimed as one of Indonesia’s best restaurants
Bella Rosa Italian restaurant at Hotel Padma Bali has recently acclaimed as one of Indonesia’s best restaurants by Indonesia Tatler’s discerning readers. The restaurant is featured along with other 150 best restaurants from all over Indonesia in the Indonesia’s Best Restaurants 2006 Guide book published by this prestigious magazine in the beginning of this year.
With the recent completion of the upgrade, Bella Rosa, has now plenty outdoor seating capacity with its location that is just meters away from the spectacular Legian’s legendary sunset beach front. It offers unparalleled views of the Indian Ocean and nice sea breezes for all the al-fresco diners.
Bella Rosa’s Chef John Taylor who has sheer experience in Europe and Asia has brought a unique flavour and flair to the cuisine available in the restaurant. He has prepared a comprehensive menu for the restaurant focusing on popular Italian pasta dishes, wood fired pizzas and a delicious choice of house favourites. Additionally, all sauces are prepared daily from traditional recipes using ripe tomatoes, herbs and spices. Meals are generous in size and therefore filling, so diners are advised to leave just a little room to indulge in a treat of delectable homemade deserts.
Notable dishes featured on the menu include a zesty pesto dip that accompanies the complimentary breadbasket, a hearty Minestrone Soup with Rosemary made from fresh chunky vegetables and the tasty Bruschetta Bella Rosa. The pasta section is highlighted by a choice of spaghetti, tortellini and lasagna. For something more substantial other popular main dishes include Delicious Spagetthi Lobster Thermidor, Spagetthi Della Casa with chicken & Prawns in a spicy tomato cream sauce, Bucattini Spezialle with garlic, chilli, crabmeat in spicy tomato sauce, Spagetthi Con Salmone served with sundried tomato, peppers, garlic and jalapenos topped with herb and cheese crusted salmon and not to mention cummin & peppered Grilled Lamb Steak.
Bella Rosa’s assortment of sumptuous desserts is also tempting. A Warm Chocolate Pudding, continue with a glass of Chocolate Chello and a specialty coffee is the ideal combination to conclude any meal. Complementing the entire menu is an extensive beverage list featuring spirits, liqueurs, beers, non-alcoholic cocktails and a selection of international class wines.
For those who take pleasure in fine food, impeccable service and calming surroundings, Bella Rosa is another superb dining option on the island of Bali.
