Nothing beats with a perfect dinner ending after a whole day of hard work. Elaine and I decided to head to One Fullerton Bay for dinner. The place is known with it’s magnificent view of the Marina Bay Front. We decided to pamper ourselves and headed to Forlino.The restaurant is located on the 2nd floor of One Fullerton with a beautiful view of the Marina bay front and overseas the view of Esplanade as well.

We decided to pamper ourselves and headed to Forlino.The restaurant is located on the 2nd floor of One Fullerton with a beautiful view of the Marina bay front and overseas the view of Esplanade as well. Totally in love with the comtemporary italian dining interior design here. We were like walking from reality to Alice in Wonderland?Sound magicals but we were passing a maze of blue walls upon arriving the entrance of the restaurant. The staff greeted us at the reception/ waiting lounge and direct us to the dinning place. The staff greeted us with a broad smile and gave us the menu for ordering. The staff will then share with us today’s special menu. They are all well-trained with the food knowledge and servicing in front line.
After browsing the menu, we had our order placed. We were then served with the complimentary starter before dinner.
Forlino’s signature freshly baked Foccacia Bread. The beauty of the bread is the top layer of the bread. It is crispy and slightly caramelized and soft fluffy at the bottom of the bread. It is just nice to eat plain and even with the raspadura cheese. Thumbs up!Raspadura cheese. Awesome I would say. I totally in love with it. I had them with the bread. Here comes my main course- La Cotoletta @S$35.00.
It’s the herb crusted kurobuta pork loin with arrabbiata spicy tomato sauce. The tomato sauce was not spicy at all. It taste sweet and goes well with the pork loin. The kurobuta pork loin was nicely done.Crispy on the outer layer and soft and moist meat texture once you chew it into your mouth. Not to mention that the art food presentation makes our appertize grows. Elaine had Filetto di Ippoglosso @S$38.00.
Pan Fried Halibut fillet with mussel,taggjana olive & spelt risotto,saffron jerusalem artichoke cream. It is a good choice. The chef is indeed displayed a splendid cooking skill as the skin of the fish was nicely pan fried but able to retain the juicy,smooth and soft texture of the inner of the fish. My friend describe that she feels like floating in the sea when she had it in her mouth. Sound exaggerating but truly enough that’s the feeling at that moment. Risotto was nicely done as well. The portion was quite generous and it is a very filling main course. We ordered House’s Signature Dessert- Salty Butter Caramel Lava Cake @S$15.00.
This is very sinful and filling. The butter-infused caramel will make anyone saliva dropping non-stop. The service staff will ‘pop’ the dessert for you. But i choose to do it myself because i want to enjoy the flowing moment. it’s a perfect combination with the salty ice-cream! We also ordered il Tiramisu al te verde @S$15.00. Truly a good choice for Tiramisu lover. This is slightly different from the ones we normally had. It is served in green tea powder layed on top of the two layers of light sponge cake. It’s an alcoholic coffee tiramisu with unique combination. Sorry for the poor quality photos taken using iPhone 4s. Great place for quiet birthday celebration with partner and small group. It’s a place that worth paying a hefty price tag but you get to enjoy the ambience of the place with good quality of foods and services. You will be spoilt by their attentiveness and meticulous service. Ladies are provided stool to place their handbags and any special requests required. Reservations are adviseable if you are planning for celebration.No wonder it is recognized with excellence reviews and services from different social media platform. I have attached one of the recognition here to share with you guys.
