Da décor at Da Paolo is kind of gaudy - cow skins on wall and ceiling in a hot weather! But da pizzas are delish, and da service is very good - helpful and friendly. Located in da most remote corner of Holland Village, it must rely on its brand to attract customers, as there are more than half a dozen places selling pizzas and Italian food in de area (Original Sin, Madrinaa, La Nonna, Pizza Xpress, Crust, Otti’s Deli, plus Harry’s also serves pastas). No wonder they all offer Entertainer 1-for-1 mains!

Don’t estimate this place because of its appellation (‘deli’) or appearance - a doorless eatery on top of an escalator. Not only it’s a proper restaurant with several chefs in the kitchen, but it’s the junior branch of the famous Otto Ristorante by Maxwell’s Chambers. The revamped menu now is more ‘adult’ than before. Pastas are good, perhaps a bit under salted but maybe that’s in line with being in the Raffles Health building. Reasonably-priced wines, although not many wines by the glass on offer. Charming service staff - could be a bit more pro-active though. No need to win the lotto to eat at Otto’s.

Sumptuous Italian buffet, especially on Sunday. Most fabulous is the cheese room; even in Italy, it is rare to find a place serving or selling so many different cheeses. The cooked-to-order raviolis with fresh truffles and the pan-fried foie gras are also delicious. The seafood is extremely fresh, even if they don’t offer oysters. Relatively speaking, the mains (for which there are many) are the weak link here - we’ve all had better versions of the same dishes. Excellent, pro-active service staff. To a customer (unaccustomed with elegant buffets) who spent a long time picking bacon pieces from a serving plate of pappardelle, a busy chef offered him a big helping of the pork.

Osteria Art shortened its name to Art, and refreshed the menu. It used to have the most fabulous pasta in town, they are now just ok. Their mains are more modern (eg. emulsions, etc), but the turbot and veal belly don’t satisfy as much as the whole fish or the veal Milanese. What happened?!?
