Hubby finds it hard to pass through Bangsar without insisting that we pick up a pizza from the boys at Portofino. Thin crust Italian bases and plenty of seafood options are their specialty.

  1. I am getting hungry looking at the mouthwatering pizza! I do love pizza but don’t eat it often. When I do, though, I prefer vegetarian with mushrooms, onions, garlic, bell peppers and cheese. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Useful list, thanks! Have heard good things about Luce, need to check it out!

  3. I must go try out the one nearest to me at Great Eastern Mall real soon ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Come to think of it, I’ve never had a pizza anywhere in KL. About time I give one a try. Thanks for the tips.
