I really love cheese so we had this platter as starter from a previous trip here, but I’m really bad with identifying them so......... Assorted cheese served with grapes, crackers and cheese marmalade😄


Penne pasta on the menu but we switched to linguine. Al dente as it should be, and the cream sauce was quite rich but was tasty and thought it was well-balanced with the dash of chili. Comes with squid, prawns and we absolutely loved the juicy mushrooms.


Comes with the option of mozzarella cheese and tomato / pesto sauce/ four-cheese sauce and of course I picked the latter BECAUSE CHEESE.

The gnocchi was soft. The sauce was rich and creamy, not sure if the smell of blue cheese is too overwhelming for those who don’t like it but we loved it, though the lack of other ingredients made it a bit jelak towards the end for me.


This is fast becoming our favourite place for pasta, but this mountain of clams were also pretty good for starters! While it was rather pricey at $25, it was no wonder - we were surprised by the amount of clams. Tossed with garlic, parsley, white wine, evoo and bits of chili for that spicy kick, we really enjoyed it together with the complimentary bread basket. It was a tad oily to mop it all up but I loved that it was so fresh and plump!


Simple menu focusing only on 12” pizzas recommended for 2-3 pax, with some pasta dishes. This little eatery might be easy to miss, but is certainly a hidden gem - affordable and pretty good! Modena ‘Salami’ was tomato-based, topped with pork sausage, mozzarella and mushrooms. While the toppings were simple, we were pretty impressed by the dough which was thin, slightly chewy without being overly dense with crisp crust.

has got to be my favourite here - would gladly finish it by myself. Not overly cheesy, with creamy aromatic truffle mushrooms, within a fluffy, slightly chewy, crusty schiacciata. Eat it while it’s hot and it’s absolutely comforting. I’ll be back for this! 😌

Pretty new cafe serving Italian fusion food (this is where its name blend it up came from - I'd have thought it sounded like a smoothie place lol) helmed by veteran Chef Peter Neo. Quite an extensive menu. ($18.80) - thin, crispy crust (thought it was pretty good), feta and mozzarella cheese, honey baked ham, mushrooms and a sunny side up.


Regretted not getting more groupons for this place - food was pricey but generally good except for the less satisfying seafood platter (apparently ran out of lobsters so they replaced with more of others.) portion wasn't very big for $42. grilled prawns had a nice charred taste to it but was a little mushy. Salmon was very well executed, flavourful. Served also with calamari and roasted vegetable caponata.

And skip the Bread and Butter Pudding with Candied Bacon ($12) !! It was served cold, dense, in a mess with the pudding portion seemingly separated ; and for a fan of bacon this was one un-candied bacon I wouldn't mind skipping.

Thoroughly enjoyed the herb fettuccine ($24) and Bismarck pizza ($24) - light thin crust, tomato base, with thin tasty prosciutto cotto, sauté mushroom topped with a soft egg that despite its look, was still runny!


So glad I didn't write this place off completely after an average-tasting brunch the other day - this risotto ($28++) was pretty awesome. Perfectly cooked, topped with poached egg, making the risotto even creamier, and prawns were succulent, sundried tomatoes were sweet. No idea what went into the tasty stock but it actually tasted like lobster bisque. G who doesn't eat anything that looks strange to him (in this case, squid-ink stuff) actually enjoyed this.


Also by Átipico's home Chef Matteo Pertoldi. $6, really tiny so it's pretty expensive but yum. The artisanal cone tastes a little like love letters, with a hint of sesame. Together with creamy burrata cheese and slightly sour-tasting perino tomatoes confit, and basil cress - everything goes well together.


At the 9MCM Jubilee Marketplace (Jun 20-21 at 9 Muthuraman Chetty Rd), came across this little gem on level 2 by Átipico. $13 for a small bowl, but it was good. Named for its fusion of local and Italian flavour - laksa risotto, coconut gelato, sautéed prawn. Coconut gelato was geeeeeenius, a little scoop of it atop the piping hot perfectly cooked risotto, melting bit by bit giving a great milky coconut flavour. Chef Matteo Pertoldi is a home chef so no restaurants, only cooks at events and whatsoever. Glad i got to try it!


$6 for the pasta (I love broccoli so this was quite delish in a homely way. Served with bacon and cheese. Not a lot of ingredients tho). Mushroom soup was thick tasty and creamy but a little on the salty side. The pork shoulder in milk with lentil ($12) looks unappetizing but loved it! Quite tender, and everything went well together. mummy felt it was a bit gelat towards the end though.
