Buongiorno! How to spend weekend? Sunday Brunch sounds great, a bowl of noodles is surely comforting (does it sound very Asian?) but I'm into Italian food and having a plate of pasta instead definitely a yes. Shangri-la Jakarta is famous for its SATOO, breakfast or dinner, they have anything you want from Chinese to Indian food. But personally I turned into ROSSO for Sunday Brunch, from 11 am to 2.30 pm here you can enjoy more than just pasta, from antipasto to selection of wines.
Formaggio - when it comes to Italian food, think about cheese.. cheese pizza, cheesy pasta, even salad with cheese, I found Pecorino (sooo good) and the love-hate Gorgonzola (I'm #teamGorgonzola anyway).
To start - I had salad topped with parmesan, more cheese and tomatoes on side, few slices of beef bacon, and my most favorite sauteed mushroom with artichoke. As a big fan of artichoke, pairing it with almost everything, pizza, pasta, and surely goes well with salad. Continue with risotto, freshly made pumpkin and shrimp risotto in a cheese wheel, looks very attractive. Wish they will have the pasta version in the future. This dish, risotto in cheese wheel is only available on Sunday Brunch.

Primo - some people said that pasta is a dish that they ordered whenever they had no idea what to choose from the menu, but if you're in an Italian restaurant, you have to eat pasta. Not as a main dish but it's what you eat before the main dish. From the oil to cream based pasta sauce, short or long pasta,

|buffet and a la carte to choose are included|
Main - choose selected a la carte to continue, must say that the Filetto di Manzo was the bomb! Do not leave before having this super tender lean beef, on a bed of cheesy spinach, foie gras on top, even better with gorgonzola sauce. Feel free to choose from the selected a la carte, from pasta to fish.

The Desserts - any left space for sweets? I don't think that I will have a sliced of cake after full course meal, not really into cake anyway but if you're coming with kids, they definitely will be very happy. Pretty dessert table, chocolate fondue, and of course ice cream. OK, I got my self ice cream, two scoops, well you know I just can't, it's Sunday and you'll be happier after ice cream.
Fresh look, bright, simple and relaxing, I found my self enjoyed Rosso even better. It's where to sit down, eat and drink, little talks with love ones. There're not many to choose from the buffet (compared to Satoo) but everything was pretty and delightful. Don't forget to order the Filetto di Manzo, well if only you're into blue cheese.. anyway let me know what do you think, Ciao!
