The restaurant used to be located in Holland Village and was relocated to the current location about one and a half year ago. The restaurant had changed hands. The current owner is the third owner. Compared to the cozy little place at its former location, the current place is quite open with bright modern looking look.Although the menu is a single page, it offers quite a lot of items, ranging from starters to pizzas to pasta dishes to mains. There is also special promotion for lunch and all day dining meal. For those who love to drink, you would happy to know that beer costs $4++/glass and wine costs $6++/glass during happy hours.Bruschetta al Pomodoro ($7.90/4pcs)A simple but tasty starter with the chopped tomato on toasted bread.Creme di funghi ($9.90)wild mushroom cream soupThe soup was thick and rich in taste.Zuppa di mare ($12.90)fresh seafood with tomatoThere was lots of seafood such as squid, mussels, clams. Best have the soup when it was still hot as the taste was most intense.Sauteed Mushroom ($10.90)served with Crispy Crostini BreadThe sliced mushroom was sauteed with sliced onions, parsley and garlic. Simple in look, but tasted buttery and well caramelized.Saute Vongole ($15.90)clams served with white wine sauce and chilliIt was not the usual kind which I was expecting. With the use of chilli and garlic, the style of cooking used here was quite localised. The clams was garlicky and juicy.Gli Involtini di Proscuitto di Parma ($15.90)Rolled parma ham stuffed with rocket and Mascarpone cheese dressed with balsmincoIt was a simple dish, but being rolled made it easy for one to pop a piece into the mouth easily with hand.Zucca ($13.90)roasted pumpkin with air-flown salad and honey mustard dressingI had never have pumpkin in this way with dressing on top. The pumpkin was soft and buttery.Pizza Quattro Stagioni ($27.90)mushrooms, parma ham, pepperoni, seafood with tomatoesThis pizza came in 4 different flavours on thin crispy crust. I had the mushroom part which was topped with caramelized onions.Aglio Olio e Peperoncino con Granchi ($30.90)Crabmeat pasta with garlic, olive oil, and chilli in aglio olio styleIt looked simple in presentation, but there was lots of crabmeat especially right in the bottom of the plate. The paste soaked up the intense flavours of the seafood and was quite flavourful.Seafood Risotto di Mare ($28.90)Risotto rice with seafood and cherry tomatoThe rice was well cooked and flavourful, but it was not cooked in the traditional creamy and rich way.Duck Confit ($32.90)gently cooked sumptuous duck legI was surprised to find this dish on menu as I felt that it was a French dish. Although the meat was tender, I felt that it was on the dry side and would prefer a crispier skin.Barramund Fish ($28.90)grilled fish fillet with saffron cream sauceAlthough the sauce looked quite bright and yellow, it went quite well with the meaty juicy fish.Primo a base di carne ($42.90)Lamb rack, ribeye, & chicken thigh served with red wine sauceThis dish was served medium rare. The lamb rack was done just nice, tender and easy to chew without any strong gamey taste. Everyone agreed that the ribeye was great. The chicken was tender and juicy too. It was one of the best dishes of the meal.Tiramisu ($5 with tea or coffee under purchase with purchase promotion)The cake was soft and moist, without too creamy in taste.Overall the food served was quite delicious, although the style of cooking was quite localised. The service was not bad. Water was refilled often. Food was served quite fast. Maybe because there was not much customers during the night. continue reading

"Cucina" means "kitchen" in Italian, and is located in the fairly new Aperia Mall within the Lavender / Kallang region. This fiery red, family-style restaurant seeks to serve authentic yet creative Italian fare, focusing on food quality and affable service. Joyce the owner was very friendly when we visited, which probably explains why I would be going back in a couple of days again.We had the King Prawn Pasta (SGD$42.90) - grilled ocean king prawn served over pasta in tomato sauce. This was our favorite of the night, because of the sweet, springy flesh of the king prawn as well as the zesty flavour of the al-dente pasta. It was simply delicious.The Salmon Fillet (SGD$28.90) - grilled salmon with special cocktail sauce. The flakey coral-pink salmon was soft, succulent and grilled perfectly to retain moistened texture. The cocktail sauce gave it a slightly fiery / tangy hint.Last but not least, Tiramisu (SGD$11.90), made by their own chefs. This square of moistened cake was sufficiently infused with amaretto and espresso into a flavourful union. We also loved the soft texture of this dessert, finishing the entire cake even though we were very full from the main courses earlier on.For full review and more detailed information, please feel free to visit:http://thearcticstar.blogspot.sg/2015/12/drinks-buffet-and-dinner-at-cucina.html continue reading
