I enjoyed dining at Otto Locanda and it was one of the best Italian that I have tried so far. Not only the food was good but the service was superb. I just can't praise this place enough cause my friend and I really enjoyed my time there. I went on a Monday and there weren't that many people. There was this lady who was there attending and showing us our seat. She was really polite and she managed our orders. Upon seated and ordered, we were served with some ice water and not long after some bre
This place has also one of the best service. What I noticed was that the waiter will come and check on you regularly if everything is alright and if they can serve the next dish. It is different as they allow you to eat at your on pace comparing to serving all the dishes at one go. This is really commendable cause not many places does that. Also, after our second dish, Chef Marco, the chef also came out and greeted us and check if the food was alright. The attentiveness just makes you feel special and it just makes your dining experience more memorable. Pricing is also affordable and I would say it is really quality food, so its really worth it. Fresh Baguette - This was served with a plate of Olive oil with some balsamic vinegar. The bread was fresh and fragrant. Lasagna della Locanda ($23)
This is a must-try dish! It is an entree dish and it consisted of oven baked truffle together with Porcini mushroom lasagna and what they called a light cherry tomato sauce. It was served hot and you can feel the warm lasagna and the cheese melts in your mouth. It was simply yumz! Ravioli Toscani ($24)
This dish is a Home-made Ravioli with tastes of butter and sage sauce on pureed lentils. It also contains Buffalo Ricotta cheese and Tuscan black cabbage. Black cabbage are not black in colour though. It is a wild cabbage also known as Kale. Anyway, this dish came second and I carefully savour every bite of this Ravioli, it was fresh, creamy and delicious. Carnaroli Risotto with mix seafood & fresh basil pesto ($34)
This was our last main dish. It was a special of the day which you won't find it in their normal menu. I was so glad my friend ordered this. It came with a generous amount of seafood and the Risotto was the best I have tasted. The differences is that this Risotto was softer than the usual ones that I have tasted. The flavours kind of wraps up the Risotto so when you take a mouthful of it, you can taste of all the combination of seafood which makes it so flavoursome. I am really not exaggerating, your really have to try it yourself. And, you can really taste a tinge of pesto which added an extra refreshing taste in this dish. Tiramisu al Caffe’
The traditional Tiramisu is just Wow! It was topped in an Espresso coffee sauce and The mixture of the coffee, alcohol, the texture was just so nice. It was well-done in my opinion. I was so full of joy and mesmerized by it with every bite. Ambience was really soothing with light music playing in the background with decoration of wine since it is an Italian restaurant. Lighting was dim, good for dates or a nice relaxing dinner. Place was also very convenient just next to Tanjong Pagar MRT. Do take the Exit B at Maxwell Chamber building and you will find it.
