If you're looking for nice places to eat in Bali that are similar to those in Kemang, head down to Laksmana Oberoi. Here, the streets are lined with nice (and even posh) restaurants, but there's a particular stretch that's concentrated with Italian eateries, to name a few: Rumours, Trattoria & Ultimo.
A friend of mine recommended me to check out Ultimo and Rumours (thanks Jürgen!), but we decided to settle for the latter because it looked lively from outside. This place is actually a hybrid of bar / restaurant, with bar stools and a pool table. I'd say it's quite a nice place for romantic dinner, except for the loud music.

The Green Soup with cream is HIGHLY recommended. Contrary to the unappetizing look that some may associate with green, this concoction is anything but distasteful! The soup itself is creamy & very smooth, while the shredded chicken and crunchy sweet peas at the bottom of the soup packed a punch to the nutritious fare.

The Tuna Spring Roll is the protein-packed substitute for the vegetables spring roll most of us are used to at home. Best eaten with the red sweet & spicy sauce. :)

All being said, I'm in love with Rumours! So I shall rate it 4 out 5 =)
