Sunday late lunch. Great service, great food! Vegetable, bread and cheese board / platter was a delight. Freshly made. Service was attentive but not intrusive.
Wonderful ambience, food and service. Felt like home! Excellent selection of vegetarian dishes. Dessert (budino and chocolate cake) was delicious. Highly recommend and will definitely be back!
Highlight of course is the quality of ingredients. Salads and cheese were exceptional! Wide selection of antipasto, pasta and mains. We had difficulty choosing what we wanted to try from the menu. Then our waiter came and informed us of the specials for the day and we were blown away. Will have to come back again. I personally love the ambiance and tranquility. Nestled in the old charming estate with lush trees and untouched by the construction and chopping of trees like in the many estates in Singapore.
Highly recommended for a romantic date night or just chilling with a small group of friends. The chef and waitress are both sincere, especially when interacting with us to find out our dietary preferences and take extra effort to customise the dishes wherever possible. Thumbs up! Chef mentioned the menu will be revamped in the near future to include more exquisite dishes without onion & garlic.
We didn't manage to get a table indoors, and so we sat outside. The area was dark and not well lit, so that was not the best place to have dinner with the family. However, the food and the service made up for it to some extent. I would return, but I will not want to be seated outside again.
The service is excellent. The Chef will explain the type of ingredients used in each dish. The waitress will refill the water and clear the utensils after each dish. The food is awesome. The dishes are delicious and authentic. The music played adds pleasure to the whole dining experience.
Wonderful Italian cold cuts and cheeses. And pasta is superb. Great ambience and knowledgeable service staff. And good selection of wines. You can also order stuff from their sister restaurant Pietrasanta next door.
Good authentic Italian vegetarian restaurant in a quaint location. Reasonably priced with good quality food. Chef was very accommodating and can make customised change to the dishes according to dietary preference. Definitely recommended and worth giving it a try!
