For the full review with pictures, please check out http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.com/2011/11/michelangelos.htmlThe meal started off badly. I'd made reservations mid-week for 3 persons indoors over the long weekend, but when we arrived, we were told that there was no such reservation. Only after I'd made noise (and a small scene) that they provided us a table (out on the terrace with the humidity, no less, so we were left sweating mid-way through the dinner). They may have served us spittle, and that may have contributed to the less-than-glowing review of the restaurant, but I didn't think I was wrong in insisting that they provide a table for us. Someone on their staff definitely screwed up. And I'm certainly not one to lie my way to get a table without reservations.In general, the food was very ordinary, standard fare of almost every other Italian establishment in town. Service-wise, with the exception of our waiter not understanding the phrase "hold off the parsley", it was alright. Ambience was romantic, with candles and dim lighting for illumination, but the heat and humidity of the outdoors terrace deterred us from lingering, and ordering dessert. We just wanted to eat and run (not dine and dash). With such an illustrious history and judging from the number of dining awards garnered by the restaurant, the dining experience was a little underwhelming. We had:1) Beef Carpaccio ($22) - supposedly sprinkled with truffle oil, but I couldn't quite taste (or smell) any truffle essence. Otherwise, beef was fresh, moist and tender2) Capesante e Gamberi ($26)- a pairing of pan-seared scallops topped with caviar atop a bed of onion confit and garlic tiger prawns perched on sundried tomato pesto and lemon butter - quite good. Scallops were succulent and sweet and prawns were huge and crunchy3) Mozzarella di Bufala con Prosciutto ($24), buffalo mozzarella wrapped in Italian prosciutto - ratio of mozzarella to the silky ribbons of prosciutto was lower than I'd liked4) Penne Sambuca e Gamberi ($26)-deshelled tiger prawns and sundried tomatoes tossed in a tomato cream sauce and then flamed with a shot of Italian sambuca - probably the best main5) Risotto con Porco e Porcini ($28)- Italian arborio rice simmered in porcini and champignon mushrooms with white wine braised pork belly and a hint of truffle oil, didn't impress. I couldn't even smell the truffle oil and the addition of the porkbelly was simply one ingredient too many6) Linguine Frutti di Mare ($32) flat pasta tossed in a medley of crayfish, squid, barramundi fillets, scallops, prawns and green-lipped New Zealand mussels in a zesty tomato chilli sauce - fresh seafood continue reading

Michelangelo's Restaurant is an awesome restaurant but also very expensive too! The pasta sells 30++ each plates which I dont really willing to spend this much money to have it. So I just ordered the drinks XD this two coffee drink is $5 each and quite nice too! the iced cafe latte is so refreshing because it's cold and the coffee taste just woke me up. Had some time enjoying with friend in the restaurant. continue reading

Finally we came to try out the well known restaurant. Had a deal in Groupon. The portions are well sized. We were afraid that it will be like those fine dinning restaurant with small portions so we were quite happy.Ribs, soup and bread is good. Pasta was alright and the risotto is slightly above average. Service can be better thou. continue reading

QUARANTAOTTO is one of Michelangelo's signature dish. They use U.S.D.A. boneless beef short ribs and braise them for a minimum of 48 hours! It's served in a sherry broth sided with delicately whipped potatoes scented with white truffle oil. According to the menu, it comes in limited servings daily. The beef is beautifully braised such that it kinda melts in the mouth with a lovely texture. Really packed with flavour. The whipped potato comes together with this dish and is devilishly good! It has very strong buttery flavour and is superbly creamy. I love it as it melts in the mouth. Wonderful addition to this dish. The sparkling water is a waste of money though, really should have just taken the still. continue reading
