Not a normal Bolognese sauce, it's orange. Even tho they are both tomato sauces, this one is very different from the amatriciana, probably more cream added. It's decent, and the portion is quite generous. But not good enough to warrant this price without burpple beyond

Not very good. The burrata was alright but the pasta lacked depth. Sigh where can I find a good amatriciana

Apologies again for my phone messing up and losing the photo

This was very unexpected because io's version is crispy, basically siobak but this one was thinly sliced and is similar to cooked ham. It's very mild and doesnt leave an impression, very overpriced for 17 too

Stealing a photo because my phone messed up, somehow it lost the photo

It wasn't as good as I expected, slightly overdone and not enough of the citrus butter sauce. Passable for their standard, but why would u get this if the other items are vastly superior?

Quite well balanced. Certainly the best BBQ ckn pizza I've had. I know it's kind of a stupid choice considering how their other pizzas are almost certainly better but I was tempted to taste a proper BBQ pizza made by an Italian place instead of some chain restaurant lol. And no regrets, it's pretty satisfying

It's passable for their standard, but nothing stunning. Tomato sauce wasn't anywhere near as bright as previous time we had it.

Yes. You read the price right. I'd say it's still worth it because it's a huge slice, it's the best pear cake I can imagine, and the experience is something else.

Food: the pears were soft and very thinly layered, with batter between the layers. To me the difficulty in a pear dessert is to complement the pear flavour, while not overwhelming it. Pear isn't very strong, unlike say a mango or passion fruit, so it's difficult to balance but they did it superbly with a caramel at the bottom. There's also a nice roasted aroma from the caramelised base layer of cake. I feel this is as good a pear cake can be, simply because of the challenge of making pear the main ingredient in a dessert

Everything else: that's really what made the whole meal. A week ago I begged them to make a pear cake for me on that day(it's usually only consistently available on a Thursday), and on the day itself the lady head chef made it for me personally. On top of that, they surprised me with a bday song, sang by the whole team along with a wind instrument. Pretty dope. Just as I was about to leave, the lady head chef gifted me another slice of that wonderful cake. Damn, they really made the experience special <3

It's a very thin layer but gao enough to be filling. Tomato seafood base, rice was softly chewy, but the element that pushes it over the top is the lardo, which they import from Italy. It has such an intense porky umami, the fragrance is special as well. Combined with the squid ink risotto to form a bitter aftertaste tho, would be good on bread or sth

Some say they have the best focaccia. Best is abit of a stretch but I gotta say it's very solid. The exterior has a strong crunch(in fact the crunchiest focaccia I've had), being baked before it is served

What sets it apart might be the accompaniment though. The extra virgin olive oil is the best I've had so far. You can almost taste "green" haha. The pork salumi was piquant and tangy, and the olive oil smoothes it over. It's really something

Taste like kinder Bueno but not as good. Very promising ingredient list but execution was barely passable. Mainly it's just an ice cream lol, would u pay 14 for an ice cream? Unfortunately this is their only proper dessert, if it's proper at all

The crust was soggy after 1min. Not a big deal, it's not the disgusting kind of soggy, just kind of lost its crisp. At least the circumference remained crispy, possibly because of the cheese and the filling

Inside was quite tasteless, it's just ricotta mainly. The crushed tomatoes sauce is what lifts up the entire dish, that was superb. Nice balance of fruitiness, tanginess and sweetness. We were spreading it on the other pizza's crust(cos they were tasteless)

The crust for their pizzas are rather hard. I mean it's crispy but when there's no sauce, and there's no flavour in the crust itself, it gets rather boring to chew when you hit the end of the pizza with no toppings. It's also rather tiring because of the structural integrity. Basically, not for everyone. Come only if you're into authentic Italian probably? I rmb the breads and stuff over there were all pretty hard. Personally I much prefer Lino's rendition, and I believe unless you're very experienced w Italian cuisine most Singaporeans should prefer the softer, but still crispy crust of lino as well

White base is stronger, but not too much also. Have a feeling their toppings are all mild so you get to taste the crust, which is fine and all if your crust is flavourful but in my naive opinion I feel this store's crust lack flavour.

The flavours were good, sweet onions w pork sausage and cheese. I imagine I will enjoy them v much if there's a lot more of it
