daughter picked pizzaiola for her birthday dinner on 8.11.2018. ^
she wanted to go amo at first, she went with her hubby and friends in any case.
this evening we also celebrate son and wife’s birthday.
wife just sat down and had to leave right away, so we tapao food for her later.
there was the special burrata..very good standard with parma ham & rockets…it was enough for 8pax to share.. 🙂
son ordered a pizaa, can’t remember what it was, maybe the crabmeat pizza special?
pizza here quite good, quite nice dough. i liked it. son did not eat all and left some dough in his plate.
and the truffe roast pizza pizza.
this the signature here, and it was good. but maybe it was just the truffle. the roast beef was ok. so said previous time he was here beef was pink and better.
the squidink pasta with scallops in cream sauce was a special, not on menu.
we ordered 2 to share. it was very good, just that most of us preferred white wine sauce to creamy sauce.
the fettuccine pasta with bacon, mushrooms & semi-dried tomatoes in cream sauce had the cabonara creamy taste w/o the raw egg.
it was very good actually. i liked it. one serving was enough for us to share though.
the fruit mare was the poorest pasta, mainly because the tomato sauce was not great. a good spicy tomato sauce arrabiata can be very good actually.
we decided to add the other special squidink pasta with prawns in white wine sauce . and indeed this was even better. we ordered 2 to share.
later we tried to tapao this for wife but they had sold out.
so we ordered the squid-ink linguine pasta with crab meat & white wine sauce on the menu. somehow it was good but no comparison with the prawn squidink pasta.
so in the end we ordered 1 burrata, 2 pizza, 6 pastas, 1 more pasta tapao, and 1 white wine 1 for 1 so we had free corkage for the red wine we brought.
& bill was about S$260, quite ok i guess.
i had earlier booked to go hopscotch for a drink after dinner. the children were excited to go to wimbly lu next door for their great waffles, so i canceled hopscotch.
