Located in Custom House, there is this Italian restaurant. It is its third outlet after its outlets in Florence and Vienna. Singapore is its first outlet outside Europe and has been operating here since 2010. Recently the restaurant starts to offer brunch menu on Saturday from 11am to 2.30pm.The restaurant has both indoor and outdoor dine in area, with a unblock view of Marina Bay Sands which is located across the river. If it is not too hot, it would be better to dine outdoor with the wind blow
Fritattate al Tartufo ($22++)
Egg Frittata, Ciabatta Toast, Truffle Cream
Everyone loves this the most that we even ask for a second order. The truffle cream tastes rich and creamy but not overwhelming. The egg frittata is soft and moist, and goes well with the creamy sauce.
Uova Strapazatte con Funghi ($20++)
Scrambled Eggs, Sauté Mushroom, Rustica Toast, Sauté Spinach
As spinach is not available, it is replaced with broccoli. The scrambled egg is well cooked as it is firm on the outside but creamy inside. The sauted mushrooms is quite yummy.
Pollo Grigliato ($20++)
Grilled Chicken Breast, Fried Egg, Crispy Bacon, Ciabatta Toast
Although one has worried that the chicken breast will be tough , but it turns to be quite tender and flavourful.
Fumo Salmone ($20++)
Smoked Salmon, Fried Egg, Ricotta Cheese, Ciabatta Toast
The smoked salmon does not taste too salty and is a great choice with the cheese.
Salsiccia Italiano ($26++)
Grilled Spicy Italian Sausages, Rustica Toast, Fried Eggs, Arrabbiata Sauce
The sausages is a favourite for everyone as they are juicy and flavourful, without being too spicy.
Procacci Delizia ($30++)
Mortadella, Parma Ham, Taleggio Cheese, Scrambled Eggs, Rustica Toast
This is like the big breakfast dish with everything in it. It is so atas to have parma ham for breakfast. I like the cheese which is soft with a melt in the mouth texture, while not tasting too strong.
Uovo Benedetto ($22++)
Poached Egg, Rustica Toast, Crispy Bacon, Hollandise Sauce, Caviar
It is actually Egg Benedict. The poached egg is a bit too cooked as the yolk does not produce a smooth lava flow when cut. I look high and low but could not see any caviar on this dish. The sauce is rich and creamy, while the bacon is crispy without too hard or oily. For $25++ per person, enjoy free flow Prosecco (limited time only). Or for $35++ per person, enjoy free flow beverages inclusive of Prosecco, Peroni Beer, Soft drinks (Coca-Cola, Diet Coca-Cola, Sprite and Ginger Ale) and Juices (Orange, Lime, Cranberry, Pineapple and Apple). Or choose the $15++ per person, for free flow of Soft drinks (Coca-Cola, Diet Coca-Cola, Sprite and Ginger Ale) and Juices (Orange, Lime, Cranberry, Pineapple and Apple)!
Overall the dishes are delicious, except for the slices of bread that are served with the dishes. The crust of the breads is quite hard to cut through. With great view of the Marina Bay area and delicious food for brunch, the restaurant is a great choice for one to spend a quiet and relaxing morning.
