To allow easy sharing amongst the few of us, we started off with a crowd favourite of Deep Fried Calamari. And it did became our favourite, since the dish was extremely light for something that was heavily cooked in oil. It didn't come stricken in grease and there was a nice crisp to each bite. Some other vegetables like zucchini and capsicums were accorded the same treatment in this dish and the results were equally magical.

At least half of the menu showcased their Pasta dishes, which was in line with our carbo ambitions. All except for Alv, who had cravings for pizza, which unfortunately is only offered at their Pizza Bar at Holland Village. I found my Foie Gras Tagliatelle (to the left) to be pretty good and well-studded with succulent pieces of Foie Gras, with their creamy insides and caramelised exterior. Alv went for Vongole with Clams and though appreciated the freshness of the dish, didn't find it extraordinary.

G's Tagliatelle with Crabmeat was an appealing plate of orange and earned good reviews, though I'm not sure if I could bear with the creaminess throughout the entire dish. Plus, I have pledged my loyalty to Marmalade Pantry's Crabmeat Linguine.

When the birthday girl requests for Tiramisu, how can one reject her? And we are glad that she asked for it, as it was DIVINE. It was a perfect balance of coffee and liqueur, all captured in a not too sweet and sponge-soft block. However, we wouldn't extend the rave compliments to the Strawberry Cheesecake.

All in all, it was a decent meal, where the pleasant surprises came in the form of our starters and the Tiramisu. In addition, it aided in transporting us out of sunny Singapore shores and was an inspiration for a holiday*. But then again, I get such inspirations all the time.
