so far the BEST the fiancé and I have tasted! It's rare to find a tiramisu that WOW us! & we're incredibly delighted to find this at IO! Having had the best tiramisu in Florence years back, the bar for tiramisu is high. While this certainly doesnt match up to the one we had back in Florence, it's a close enough substitute! We've tried tiramisu in various Italian restaurants here - including those from rather prominent restaurants but none left such a deep impression! We love the layer of pistachio that added some crunch and nuttiness to the alcohol-infused sponge fingers. The spongy fingers were soft, fluffy and well balanced with lightly whipped mascarpone on top. Despite the seemingly thick layers of mascarpone cream, the dessert wasnt any bit cloying. In fact, we continued mouthfuls after mouthfuls despite having had a rather heavy dinner of amazing, authentic Italiano dishes . Y'know this is a must order when you spot this at almost every other table. At the time of order, the waiter affirmed our choice of dessert, "this is really good!" The fiancé loved it so much that he'd requested this for his next birthday. At $14++, this is pretty affordable and a worthy price to pay for the satisfaction it brings (compared to paying the same or more at certain restaurants, with meh~ tasting tiramisu!)

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!

An Italian quintessential pasta item found on their classic pasta menu, where you can choose a choice of classic base (e.g. aglio olio, carbonara, seafood etc), as well as customise your own pasta noodle. This vongole however, was a sad categorical disappointment. Unlike your usual light, aromatic broth that may often be made simmered with white wine, olive oil, and chillies, it was a mildly creamy textured sauce which gave a mushroom aftertaste. I was appalled at the dish, and perhaps only the rather generous amount of clams helped to save its face. Still, I found it difficult to savour a vongole so radically different from what one may expect. Further, the unorthodox sauce was not impressive as well. So, if you are expecting something better than your usual vongole, this will probably not meet your expectations.
Nonetheless, service here is fantastic. Dishes are generally affordable; just be wise!

I came excited to try the pastas at this highly raved affordable Italian restaurant. It had chill vibes and great service. The disappointing vongole made this dish seem a tad much better. The flavours of this pasta matched well, though resulting in a rather strong seafood taste and smell. Adding Tabasco/chilli oil would help to mask the taste and contribute to a more pleasant flavour. A rather good portion for $22, with moderate amounts of prawns and asparagus. But the tagliolini felt rather mushy - oddly tasting like the Chinese Ee mian. With this, I’m glad I tried this. But if I ever do come back, I’ll be trying other dishes!

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!

Rating: 9/10

Always end up coming back for group celebrations because the food is fantastic and comforting! Definitely recommend the porchetta, pizzas and tiramisu. Braised beef and pork chop was also soft and tender. Might want to skip the pastas, haven’t had a good one yet.
