Pontini is an Italian restaurant helmed by head chef Daniele Sarno, serving authentic Italian cuisine with a modern twist. This brand new Italian buffet by Chef Daniele, features a plethora of antipasti, breads, soup, main courses and desserts from various regions in Italy.
For this buffet, you get to choose ONE main course per person. Other than the main course, everything else is "unlimited" servings.
Service here was really good! The food and dessert quality was quite good, except the pizza and Tiramisu needs improvement.
Roasted Barramundi Fish Fillet, Pumpkin & Sage Mash, Snow Peas Salad & Grain Mustard Sauce - My favourite dish! The meat was tender, the skin was crisp, and the natural taste of the fish was well brought out. A pity I feel that the pumpkin didn't really complement the fish that well. But that's just my own preference... Pumpkin lovers will still like this combination nonetheless.
The pasta was excellent! For our choice of tagliatelle with mushroom and black truffle pesto, the pasta was the perfect consistency, and the chunky mushrooms were full of flavour, all emanating the wonderful smell of truffles! Pasta portions are not big so you can choose a second variety if tummy space allows.
Dessert Crepe - Chocolate chip filling inside with strawberry and almond topping... and more chocolate drizzled on top... Love it!
