This was a 2nd Italian restaurant we dined at during our stay in Bali, after Italian Job few doors away. The restaurant is located on the busy strip in Seminyak. We walked in without a booking and were pleased they could accommodate us without too...much of a wait. Inside a bar sits central around diners and you hear a jingle jangle of cocktails being made, customer chitter chatter and laughter wrapped around us. Good energy and a fun vibe bounced around reassuring us, our option of dining here was a perfect choice.
The ambience was impressive a nice relaxed cosiness flowed throughout the interior. Subtle lighting and soft glows from candles flickering on surrounding tables and a theme of red and white linen, with an added granduer of a silk canopy created a sense of elegance and sophistication. It became apparent this place sets a high bar serving only the best quality in fine dining. Outdoor seating in the garden is also available as is light entertainment, but I guess it’s how you time your visit. Once seated, menus given and we pondered over a selection of dishes. A complimentary basket of fresh warm breads and butter added a nice touch to the start of our meal. We ordered 2 mains a vegetarian pizza and a pasta dish, lovely flavours, excellent texture, presentation and good portion size. Then came the dessert tiramisu swirls of creaminess and a delicate hint of coffee and a sugar hit put our taste buds in a happy place. Drinks refreshingly delightful and prices that won’t break the bank. This place tells a story in one word Squisto!
The food was executed well and we thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience, staff not pushy and hovering over, which was nice. We caught glimpses of dishes being served to customers their expressions said it all in a word “wow”. Food displayed like fine works of art this was evident seeing empty plates going back. Ultimo didn’t do things by half the whole dining experience was perfectly crafted and you couldn’t fault it. Simplicity and a hospitable environment is a recipe that will bode well for a repeat visit. My only gripe was tables set a little too close to other diners, so lacking privacy.
It’s a shame we didn’t have time for another visit, but a high recommendation is up there for anyone who appreciates Italian cuisine and a nice evening out. Our Italian journey ended in “Eat authentic Italian food, Love the ambience, and Pray you’ll come back for more” just as the title suggests. This wasn’t an Ultimo experience, this was the ULTIMATE experience! and one we are happy to share with others. Grazie & Ciao Indu & Versha.More
Without a doubt one of the best in Bali . We come here every year for our pasta fix. Ambiance is great. Price of meals are well in range of a family budget. Always has large bookings reserved tables inside and outside dining area. For...first time visitor it’s a must for dining but it sets a high benchmark for the rest.More
I booked for our honeymoon online but when we arrived we were told we didn’t have a booking. Lucky it’s quiet in Bali as we only waited 5 mins for a table. The food was great well priced and the love band was good too...but a little annoying that every 5 mins there was birthday song sung for a guest.More
