Poor Service and Mediocre Food @ Villa Danielli, Sheraton Imperial

We've never visited Villa Danielli before and decided to give the place a try to use up our RM200 Starwood Privilege Voucher.

Cream of Mushroom
Cream of Mushroom Soup
The Mushroom Soup contained a blend of wild mushrooms that made it very earthy. It was my favorite of everything we ordered that night.


Beef Bacon and Mushroom Pizza
Beef and Bacon Pizze
The crust of the Pizza was a little dense and firm. We did however enjoy the Pizza topping of smoky bacon, mushrooms and cheese.


Tuna Carpaccio
Tuna Carpaccio
The Tuna Tartare was quite good. It came with Beef Slices that were topped with rock sea salt and a drizzle of a mayo based sauce.


Osso Buco
Osso Bucco
The Osso Bucco was so-so. The Demi-Glace Sauce was a little too salty for my liking. I did however like the Risotto Cake below which had a nice buttery flavor and a light crunchy texture.


Seabass
Seabass
This was Itsaree's order and it was so-so. The Seabass was a little overcooked causing it to be a little dry.


Spring Chicken
Spring Chicken
The Spring Chicken was quite good. It was moist cooked just right and the jus gave it a nice earthy flavor.


Seafood Pasta
Seafood Pasta
The Pasta was a little overcooked and tasted very bland.


Tiramisu
Tiramisu
The Tiramisu was not bad. It was doused however with too much Espresso Powder on top. The Lady Fingers were soaked with coffee but we wished it contained some liquor like Rum.


Chocolate Heart
Chocolate Heart
The cake did not resemble a heart at all and it was poorly done. It was suppose to be a Molten Chocolate Cake but the chocolate molten was solidified from being over baked.


Overall there were some good and some bad dishes. We felt our entire experience would have been more enjoyable if the service of the staff were friendlier. The lackluster attitude of the wait staff really brought down our overall dining experience.

Furthermore we were charged RM10 for some extra Marinara Sauce to go with our Pizza. Being a fine dining Italian Restaurant this really shocked us as to how cheap they were especially when other "cheaper" places like Porto Romano and Papa John's offer it for free.
