Sweet sweet bf brought me here for my birthday dinner celebration last year. First impression was wow! this is a classy place and we were so underdressed.
Nevertheless, we were shown a nice table by the window. Given it was a Saturday night, the crowd was not hopping at this place. But this was great for us as we prefer to have a quiet dinner than one with all the noise.
The waiter came and gave us the menus and it was hard to decide what food to eat. But eventually, we ordered:-
2 glasses of Umberto Bortol (S$16 each)
1 Zambuca salad (S$14)
1 Gnocchi (S$28)
1 Lamb Rack (S$42)
1 Tiramisu (S$12)
1 glass of Lemoncello (S$12)
Food was of excellent quality – I find the lamb very pricey as it was 2 small pieces of lamb chops. But for someone who doesn’t eat lamb coz of the “lamb-y” smell, this lamb rack is excellent! Portions are sufficient for small eaters. As in all classy dining places, don’t expect huge portions. You get quality, and not quantity here. 🙂
Being a great tiramisu fan, this tiramisu is fantastic! Out of this world! Worth every cent! If I have to beg the chef for the recipe, I would have. But too bad, I don’t cook. 😛
The glass of lemoncello is not found on the menu but if you are a fan of Italian food (like bf is), you can simply order it to have after your meal. Limoncello is traditionally served chilled as an after dinner digestivo. It is made from lemon rinds (traditionally from the Sorrento lemon, though most lemons will produce satisfactory limoncello), alcohol, water and sugar. It is bright yellow in color, sweet and lemony. This one tastes a wee bit lemony sourish.
Overall, a fantastic dining experience. We spent a total of S$164.78 (including taxes & charges) for 2 pax; very pricey but worth every single cent.
