Thanks to the invitation from Shannon and Cafe Barbera, I was given the opportunity to try out their signature dishes,along with some other bloggers. 
Although it is only recently introduced in Malaysia, Cafe Barbera has a history of over 140 years of the finest preparations of gourmet coffees in Italy. Absolutely fit for coffee fanatics, such as myself. Besides that, the cafe's menu also consist of in-house baked pastries, handmade shakes, juices, soups, salads, sandwiches, pastas, pizzas as well as main course meals and, my favourite part of a meal, desserts. ;)

Highly recommended by the chef are Cappucino Italiano, Prawn Aglio Olio, Cheese and Mushroom Pizza, Braised Lamb Shank, Chocolate Fondant and Affogato. 

 Got chandelier some more. Super chio kay! :D 

The place is very cosy and the light was dim, making Cafe Barbera a very relaxing place to hang out at. And being surrounded with the aroma of coffee, BIG bonus. (Y)
And the waiters were super friendly too! I was pretty lost looking at the 2 full page of coffees to pick from (yes, they have 2 FULL page of coffee choices). The waiters however, being very familiar with their house specialities, recommended some of the few famous ones. 
(Then after that he told me he cheat one, cause the recommended ones got star at the side of their number one wtf) 
But still, A+ for the customer service! :D 

The Coffees.

The one on the platter was served hot, where as the one in front was served cold... but this one stirred and drank half way one wtf
