Traditional Roman Schiacciata (Stuffed)

$18.00 ยท 60 Reviews

Favourite dish here was this Italian flat bread stuffed with truffle and cheese. Extremely fragrant, crisp and toasty on the outside, yet soft and flavourful on the inside. Dip in vinegar and/or olive oil if you wish, and it becomes a great, classic appetiser or even, pre-meal staple for Italian meals!

For starters and sharings, we had
- Porchetta $9
- Traditional stuffed Roman Schiacciata $9
- Pizza $18

For mains, we ordered
- carbonara $22
- tagliolini $22
- grilled pork chop $22

For drinks, we had
- Cioccolata $6
- latte $6

Overall, I would say the starters are really good. The Schiacciata is very rich in truffle sauce while the Porchetta is very crispy and fulfilling. However, while the pizza is melted with tons of cheese, it is okay compared to the other 2.

For the mains, I find the carbonara to be flavorful and I like the tagliolini except for its small portion. Pork chop is a no no, very dry pieces.

Cioccolata is literally chocolate at its liquid state. Holy. Thick and rich for sharing.

Great ambience and great italian food! Many other dishes to try. I will come back again!

The bread was toasted to a crisp! Although the truffle mushroom paste was fragrant, it would have been nice if the restaurant was more generous with the serving. Nonetheless, it is still a unique appetizer to begin your meal at Italian Osteria!

๐Ÿ’ฌ: Thick truffle-rich cream, imagine that slathered in between two pieces of chewy schiacciata and tell me that you are not gonna order that.

Was most looking forward to having this schiacciata again! Unfortunately, while the schiacciata had a good crunch, was quite disappointed that it wasnโ€™t as stuffed as we remembered from the last time, hence pretty thin.

crispy flat bread with truffle mushroom cream stuffing

although the bread was good, I personally would have preferred it to be a little crispier. well-balanced truffle mushroom sauce but a little bit lacking in the filling. it was a good started - not a life changer.

We loved the food at iO Italian Osteria and will definitely be back. I would recommend the porchetta and the stuffed roman schiacciata! Very unique and delicious. I would give the saffron pizza a miss the next time. Another point to note is that although the service staff were polite, the way that they attempted to our plates even before we were done eating at times was just rude. I understand that the restaurant is overbooked and that they wish to improve their turnover rates but this is not the way to do it... The whole meal felt so rushed and not as enjoyable as it could have been.

Crispy flat bread with truffle cream I think?? Had it twice and I think it will continue to be my must order when Iโ€™m here! Service was great too.

Heard this was a must-order, and so we did. Had high expectations for this but ours came UNDERSTUFFED :-( The bread was hot and crispy, but the filling was so miserably little, itโ€™s nothing like the pics Iโ€™ve seen. The bread to filling ratio was off and we werenโ€™t impressed at all...
