- The Food
Garlic Bread, Garlic Sauce
Garlic bread will be served complimentary with any order. Nice garlic flavour sauce that was noticeable but not overpowering.
Prosciutto & Melone @ $18
Zuppa di Mare @ $12
Funghi Portobello @ $20
Gnocchi alla Marinara @ $22
This was the first time I had tasted the gnocchi (potato dumplings) sauteed with seafood in creamy marinara (Italian tomato sauce) and topped with deep fried baby octopus. The flavors melded nicely with the seafood but I thought it was a little starchy to my liking.
Pancetta Arrosto @ $26
Spaghetti alle Vongole @ $18
The briny juices from the fresh clams flavor the brothy white wine sauce. I will love to bits if there was a stronger taste of white wine and a little bit more of chilli.
Costolette di Agnello @ $42
Grilled Australian lamb rack accompanied with broccoli pudding and gorgonzola sauce was unique. The lamb was tender and my friends think it was grilled to perfection, I felt it was a little dry thou. Note that the chef may replace the broccoli pudding (was tasty) to carrot or mushroom pudding (may be a tad rich) depend on stock availability.
Calamari Fritti @ $18
Pizza Pietro @ $26
Thin crust with homemade pork sausage with cream, porcini, rocket and mozzarella cheese.
Tortino di Lava con Rum @ $15
Tortino alla Frutta @ $14.80
Decadent rivers of passion fruit encased in soft fragrant cake waiting for me to indulge into a creamy pool of deliciousness, mmm....
Tiramisu @ $12
- My Opinion
In my opinion, this could be one of the best Italian Restaurant I had visited so far. Maybe I don't know how to appreciate the favor in my past visit, but over here the taste are well liked to my palate.
Don't let the remoteness of this place scare you. You will definitely find a sumptuous spread of dishes that uses original homemade sauce and fresh top quality ingredients. Not forgetting the exquisite desserts and wine.
