Last one for this year

Since we had holiday at Labour Day, a night before the holiday, me and Shaun went to Mario's Ristorante at Batu Ferringhi, my last birthday celebration, finally. Laugh. Went there for great food since it is recommended by his sister.
I always passed by the restaurant but never discovered this lovely place yet until that night; most of the customers in the restaurant were foreigners, because Mario's is known for its Italian cuisine and also a wine list that suit many palates. 
Got our seats at indoor instead of road side, the area is quite huge, and suitable for any occasions.
This restaurant has an open kitchen that give us the opportunity to see how are the food were prepared, in the woodfire brick oven.
Antique phone that caught my eyes that night, and look at the wine bottles, they have become a candle stand for decoration purpose.
Some snapshot while waiting for our food; impressed with the bottle design that they used to put olive oil and vinegar, pine nut-like.
Pina Colada . RM18
Finally get to have another try on it aftersince I had one at Chicago Rib House which they had obsoleted from their menu. That's something like cocktail which mixed with rum, malibu and pineapple juice; my satisfaction of the day.
Carpacio Alla Salmon . RM20.50
A layer of smoked salmon, sliced parmesan cheese accompanied on a bed of fresh lettuce, drizzled with balsamic sauce, and capers.

Cheese and Spinach Patties . RM15.50
Their signature starter: lightly steamed spinach, blended with ricotta cheese, rolled and topped with a napoletana sauce. 
Fettucine Carbonara . RM29.50
Fettucine is cooked with crispy bacon, chopped onions, butter, egg, whipped cream, parmesan cheese and parsley, rich yet yummy!
Mario's Pizza Special . RM34.50
Every restaurant will have their own signature dish, Mario's own one as well, they topped their pizza with red and green capsicum, onions, red tomatoes and artichoke hearts, not to forget the slice pepperoni.
