Modi & Rosa Grand Opening

Wine and dine with the famiglia at the all new Modi & Rosa.


KUALA LUMPUR (24 February 2017) – Kuala Lumpur has a new casual dining destination and it’s a place the whole family can enjoy. Welcome to Modi & Rosa, a restaurant and wine bar which prides itself on its authentic Italian cuisine and exclusive imported wines, where famiglia is the heart and soul of the eatery.

The man behind the business is entrepreneur Cavaliere Modesto Marini, the restaurateur who changed the culinary landscape for Italian food in Malaysia when he introduced the traditional Italian thin crust pizza to our shores two decades ago at Modesto’s, the restaurant which bore his name.

Since leaving the Modesto’s group of restaurants seven years ago, Cav. Marini has proudly and continuously promoted his Italian roots in his new establishments – one of which is the iconic Marini’s on 57 which overlooks the Petronas Twin Towers – and this latest creation situated at Glo Damansara Mall is no exception. His personal influences at Modi & Rosa are visible, from the general taste of the cuisine to the look and feel of the dining area and wine bar but you will also see glimpses of a woman’s touch – those of his wife, his rose, Elizabeth.

A family man, he wanted a place where he and his guests could come to relax, eat well and above all, enjoy time well spent with family and friends with no attention to protocol or dress codes.

“We all get caught up with our jobs, and sometimes we need to be reminded of the most important things in life, relationships. The worse thing would be to wake up one day and regret not having taken the time to spend with those we care about. So it was decided that we needed a place for not only friends to enjoy, but a place where you could and wanted to bring the whole famiglia,” said Cav. Marini at Modi & Rosa’s grand opening this evening. The event was officiated by H. E. Mario Sammartino, the Italian ambassador to Malaysia.

Modi & Rosa offers a contemporary setting with its thick wood tables flanked by welcoming leather arm chairs and leather seats, and has three sections – the restarurant and wine bar indoors, and the outdoor area for those who prefer al fresco dining. The restaurant and bar have been sectioned off by curtains which allows the space to be converted into a larger area for events. The 3,751 sq ft (348.5 sq m) restaurant can comfortably accommodate 100 persons indoors, with additional seating outdoors.

“Here we serve real traditional Italian cuisine. All our recipes are from Italy, and all our dishes are cooked exactly the way Italians have been doing it for centuries. We do not alter the recipes or methods of preparation in anyway. This is pure goodness. Fresh and hearty food that all Italians are brought up on,” said Cav. Marini.

Guests can expect the restaurant to serve an impressive range of authentic Italian food, from delicious pizza and pasta dishes to seasonal items, including set lunches, specials, and even a kids menu. Be entertained by their sociable and enamouring staff who will treat you just like an Italian mama would, with open arms and a warm, gracious demeanour. Modi & Rosa is perfect place to relax over a meal with friends, or to bring the entire family to for a weekly treat.

The restaurant is currently offering lunch specials at RM38++ and a delightful kids menu at only RM18++, in addition to its main menu. Happy Hours run from 3.00pm to 9.00pm daily.

Modi & Rosa is located at Glo Damansara Mall, LG.06, 699 Jalan Damansara, Taman Tun Dr Ismail, 60000 Kuala Lumpur. It is open daily from 10.00am to 10.00pm. For reservations, please call +603 7733 1719 or email
