Great lamb rack. Soft and tender inside and slightly burnt yet tasty outside. My best lamb rack for the time being. Enough to feed two as recommended by the waiter. Glad that this restaurant actually recommends sharing as the portions are quite big. Yummy 👍👍👍
Boston lobster with datterini tomatoes with Sicilian extra virgin oil really packs in the punch to the flavor. Love this with a pinch of pepper and it's great. Two thumbs up.
This is a 2 kg Australian sea bass baked in sea salt done by an Italian chef which to me is fantastic! The fish is very moist and tasty. Cooked in its own fat there's really no need for use of oil. Even the skin though it's a bit salted is great. The fish is served with wild rocket which complimented it very well. Squeeze a bit of lemon juice and the taste is further enhanced. Yummy yummy yum yum yum!
I found this incredibly tasty, loved the texture of crispy-edged fried ham against the saltish, creamy mound of cheese.

White Pizza - S$20 (Small), S$24 (Medium)
Black Truffle Paste, Mozzarella, Aged Bacon, Cream and Fresh Basil. My first time trying a white pizza. Interesting. When they presented the pizza, the room is already filled with the Truffle fragrance. I find the white pizza is a bit too salty for me.
My tiramisu came with vanilla ice cream which could be a special add on. What I did was I told our server Hyruddi that I needed ice cream, and he said he'll check if my Tiramisu came with one, if not he'll add a scoop [usual price $8++]. He came back with a little treat too, another scoop of parmesan cheese gelato for us to sample. It was interesting - really cold, sweet, parmesan cheese rolled into one ice cream ball.
It was such an enjoyable evening. Service was professional but personable. Server Hyruddi and Manager Subra could hold a conversation about food and other good restaurants in Singapore. The restaurant wasn't crowded so they actually showed me around the restaurant and some of their kitchen equipment.
Spaghetti alle Vongole with veraci clams, frascati white wine and sicilian extra virgin olive oil Primo DOP.
The chef probably wanted to keep this as close to the vongole in Rome as possible by using frascati white wine. It is delicately sweet, but the sweetness of the sauce also came from the juices that was from the clams. Those clams are small but plump and very fresh. Texture of the spaghetti is al dente, springy, and actually absorbs the sauces that it came with. It's one where I thought the wine actually integrates very well with the sauces without being overly alcoholic.

Out of this world smokiness, with all flavours and moisture still locked within this huge octopus tentacle.
How is this achieved? They use Josper Grill, an expensive machine which is both a grill and an oven. Anything put into the Josper is grilled using charcoal at high temperature. Since it's fully enclosed in an oven, no moisture or flavours escapes. I had my first Josper grilled meat at Izy, and I'm happy that Grissini does it better.
The octopus has an otherworldly smokiness with a thin layer of crisp, and beneath that is juicy and flavourful octopus flesh. The thinner part of the leg is smooth and tender, while the thicker part has a fibrous internal texture. There's also a 'collageny' gelatin which adds to the play in texture. What I did - closed my eyes, hold the octopus close to my nose, smell the smokiness of it, then still with eyes closed, chew on them and experience the flavours and texture. When I opened my eyes again, I realise I'm still on Earth.
Impressed by the flavours, I asked a question - what's the seasoning on the octopus? Hyruddi our friendly server asked the chefs and came back with the answer - only salt, pepper and olive oil. Unbelievable.. But true.
Bonus: the Taggiasca olives that came with it.
Even the geotag for this location is not up yet, so I've the honoured to add it's location :)
These breadsticks came with basil mascarpone cheese. A preview of my meal at this Italian restaurant at Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel replaced Pontini, with new chefs and new menu..
This is smoked burratina served with parma ham, yellow frisée and baby rocket.
The parma ham has been aged for 12 months and cured with sea salt, so it doesn't have that strong taste of nitrates typically found in bacon and other processed meat. I therefore like it's delicate taste, more so it's scented with one of the best extra virgin olive oil, a Sicilian Primo DOP.
Interestingly, the cheese isn't as intense as the stronger cheese, it's actually milky. Slightly burnt on the outside for smokiness, we found ourselves breaking up and curling that light milky cheese to mix with the parma ham and finally balance those sodium and creaminess with the lighter arugula salad.
Overall, it's lighter on the palate so it gives you a clean start to the heavier main courses that follows. Love this!
I've not taken a minestrone so intense that it's almost a meal by itself. Really tasty, full of ingredients and flavor. Add in a pinch of Grissini pepper and the taste changes to a spicy form of minestrone. Three thumbs up!
Worth every calorie! More deets on the blog.

Featured here is succulent Octopus grilled in a 28 grand Josper Oven, which has the technology to seal, smoke and grill at the same time, thereby preventing over-drying. Charcoal and flavoured wood is used to grill the tentacled creature, imparting a depth of smokiness that is unparallel. Highly recommended!
