This could be one of the best renditions of mac & cheese I’ve had yet! This photo was taken right before the waiter mixed in the egg yolk - the dish was so incredibly cheesy, creamy and rich and every bite packed a huge mouthful of flavour. Would definitely recommend, but unless you’re a huge mac & cheese fan, get it to share so you won’t find it too jelat.

I’ve been eyeing Burlamacco for many years and I finally got to try it - the pastas we chose were amazing. We had the Boston lobster linguine and the pork ragout pappardelle and both were superb. The lobster was really fresh and flavourful and the linguine was perfectly done in a rich, lightly spiced sauce. The pappardelle was done al dente and paired perfectly with the chunks of tender ragout. The servers were really sharp, as they asked if we were sharing both dishes and they served both dishes in two half portions on each of our plates so we could share, as pictured! Great service and I’ll definitely be back again.

Pig’s head, spicy pickled vegetables, parsley, charred bread - this was a great starter! The charred bread was so amazingly garlicky and buttery and we really wished we had more of it (the portion served was 3 large pieces that we inhaled in minutes), and it went really well with the pig’s head terrine. A good starter to share!

Smoked egg, aburi beef, sea urchin - this was amazing. The aburi beef was wrapped around the smoked egg and was perfectly soft and slightly chewy, and the uni was rich and creamy. Do note that you get two pieces for $12 so it’s a pretty small starter!

Mozzarella cheese, parma ham, arugula, cherry tomato, parmesan, burrata & balsamic - this was amazing. The burrata was so creamy and fresh and the parma ham was so soft and chewy. The pizza dough was light and crispy and the cherry tomatoes were insanely sweet and refreshing.

Salmon roe, mentaiko cream, mascarpone cheese / spaghetti - this was insanely good. So rich and decadent and packed with flavour in every bite. There was so much ikura that gave the sauce a light crunch with each bite, and the sauce was so so creamy and rich. We loved it! I would recommend getting this to share as it is very rich and hence may become jelat for one person after awhile. Luka never disappoints!

Had the small portion ($9) and it was amazing - the skin was incredibly crispy and the meat was juicy and tender. It paired extremely well with the mustard sauce on the side! The servers also help to cut the pork at your table.

Had to make another trip to IO to have their Italian fare and it remained phenomenal - the burrata was fresh, with generous servings of Parma ham, and the schiacciata was dripping with truffle cream. Service here was prompt and efficient as well! Do note that the last order is around 9.30pm as they close at 10pm.

Had the Tacos, sangria, a side of potatoes and a chicken quesadilla. The fish and beef tacos were to die for! Ambience here is wonderful and service is quick and attentive. It’s no surprise that this place was packed to the brim on a Saturday night, and despite the food here being more pricey ($20++ per person on average, when sharing), it’s well worth the visit.

From what I’ve gathered from the reviews here, many say that the pastas here need improvement/aren’t very impressive. Nevertheless, we decided to go ahead and order pasta to see if the naysayers were speaking the truth - I’d say this prawn tagliolini was pleasant on the palate, but it wasn’t exceptional. I could recommend this for someone looking for a rich prawn pasta with decent sauce, though! It was still enjoyable, just not mindblowingly exceptional (which seems to be the standard everyone holds restaurant fare to these days)

($18) Burrata, parma ham, rucola, cherry tomatoes - This was delightfully creamy and fresh, with generous amounts of Parma ham. I’d say for the price of $18, it’s really worth it! Some place I’ve dined at charge almost $40 for burrata of the same size and quality.

At only $9 for small, this is an incredible steal. It was perfectly (yes, perfectly) done; with exceedingly crispy roasted skin on the exterior and tender pork inside. My partner and I were practically squealing with delight as we had this dish - Italian Osteria never ceases to impress.
