Alfresco G Trattoria @ Gurney Paragon Mall, Penang.

Replacing the spot previously owned by Italiannies, Alfresco G Trattoria is a new restaurant that places great focuses on its Salad Bar. Like its previous tenant, the newly opened restaurant offers Western menu but with a healthier touch.... any order of the Pasta, Pizza or Main will entitle the diner to unlimited helpings at the Salad Bar (worth Rm 27.90/ no sharing is allowed). But Greens are the only items there... expect to see a great variety of fruits, soup and condiments, also... free flow of drinks (including soft drinks). The interior decor carries a sleek modern industrial design, tables are well-spaced with the option to dine-in at the alfresco dining zone. Prices are indeed high but they commensurate in terms of quantity, the restaurant is children-friendly. 

Angus Beef Rib Eye (Rm 58)

Aglio Mushroom Spaghetti (Rm 38)

Conglomeration of Salad from Salad Bar

No complaints over the items on the Salad Bar... in fact, we found them to be rather extensive. They did not skimp on the condiments either... worth-mentioning ones like pickled Artichokes, Olives, toasted Walnuts, Zucchini, Rockets and Beans. Appetizers aside, we had 2 mains- Angus Rib Eye and Aglio Mushroom Spaghetti. It was stated that the Angus Rib Eye would weigh 250 grams but the portion seemed to be way lesser than the said weight. While we do appreciate our steak to carry a hint of smokiness, we thought the one we had was overly burnt... with an unpleasant burnt aroma. The Aglio Mushroom Spaghetti with Chicken Bacon was alright... we like the al-denteness of the Spaghetti but it was a little over-seasoned on first bite. On the subsequent bites, we found the dish to be a tad too greasy to our liking... not that it was bad but we expected better quality for the price that we paid for.
