They range from casual lunch spots to fancy dinner dates. So we have listed some of the best Italian restaurants for you in Jakarta that will blow your mind. Let’s check them out!
1. Toodz House
Toodz House is an Italian restaurant and café that serves various menus at affordable prices. Located in Cipete, this place offers a cozy ambiance. It is located in an old building so space-wise, it’s quite small. Many customers come here more than once since the food is too good. You can try to visit this place with your friends or significant other to have a casual lunch or dinner while enjoying the warm atmosphere.
We recommend you try Carbonara Rice. It is rice poured with creamy carbonara sauce and is paired with an additional side dish that you can choose such as breaded chicken, spicy grilled chicken, black pepper beef patty, or mushroom and spinach. For drinks, you should try the French Vanilla Tea, which is basically black tea that has a strong but nice vanilla scent.
Place is nice with good ambiance to do some focused work. Tried dory rice and it was good. The chocolate milk is also nice. Cost you around 70-80K person. Might be more though. Parking is awful for car try ask parking men outside before you park there!A review from Zomato

Union is a casual dining spot offering Italian and American cuisine as well as unique cakes. It has quite a few branches but the one in Pondok Indah Mall is by far the nicest one. Most of the customers are impressed by the cakes they offer so they tend to come here to just buy them to go. This brasserie and bar also serve alcohol and offers live music during the evening.
The menus are kind of pricey but it is so worth it. We recommend you their Calamari, which is a deep-fried crispy squid with San Marzano Tomatoes & Tartar, for your appetizer. Also, try one of the most recommended cakes which is the Red Velvet Cake. It’s one of our favorites!
Love the cakes here, but my absolute fav is the Ube Velvet Cake. It has different textures, from the creamy cheese, airy ube cream, to crunchy biscuit crumbles. The best part was that it was not overly sweet so it’ll satisfy your sweet tooth but not overwhelm it. The cake also goes well with a cup of tea or to mellow the rich flavor or a cup of coffee to balance out the sweetness!A review from Zomato

4. Gia Restaurant & Bar
Located in Jl. Jenderal Sudirman, Gia Restaurant is a well-known Italian restaurant amongst the socialites of Jakarta. The classy decor and ambiance are attractive to many.

Furthermore, there is a VIP room on the second floor for those who are celebrating a birthday or anyone who wants to have a more private dinner with family
Although the price might be a bit higher, the quality of the food makes up for it. We recommend you order a great appetizer such as the Pappa di Podomoro – classic tomato soup with bread, basil, and evoo. You could also try their pizza, San Daniele & Burrata Pizza which is topped with San Daniele ham, mozzarella, burrata, and basil.
It surprises me how they have a good welcome bread (and we ordered take home of that welcome bread too). I love their salmon carpacio, the truffle pizza is also good.A review on Zomato

It is one of the best Italian Restaurants in Jakarta. Bistecca is also an Italian-American chophouse with pedigree, classy menus, and a splendid martini bar. The restaurant has a classic home theme and cozy ambiance for you to enjoy. They also have a private room for you to enjoy a date!
Even though their signature menus are their steak and martinis, but you should also definitely try their Australian Wagyu Steak! You should also try their SIGNATURE HAND-CUT FRIES with Organic Egg and Crispy Pork Bacon. besides their martini’s, they have wines and beers for you to enjoy.
I went here many times and they consistently cook great steak with excellent taste. Always had a nice fine dining experience with Bistecca.A review on Zomato
