Crispy golden seafood ($12)
Burrata, parma ham, rucola ($19). Located near Hillview MRT, iO Italian Osteria is known for its authentic Italian food and cozy atmosphere. Surrounded by ambient shelves of aged wine and geared with copper utensils, you dine on wooden tables and heavy clay plates. And the food? Stunning. |

The few times I've been here, I've managed to try a few of their dishes and was never disappointed. The fried seafood (pictured) had a thin layer of batter and fresh seafood within. As for the burrata, it's milky mildness blended well with the salty parma ham. I recommend their assorted pizza ($9-29) and lasagna "grandma" style ($18) as well. |

What you definitely cannot miss out on is their pistachio tiramisu ($14)! The rounded taste of the pistachio leaves such a heavenly aftertaste in your mouth. I don't care how full you are after all that Italian fare -- make room for dessert! |

Come here for celebrations or just to drown yourself in comfort food. ®️: 9/10
