I really like their wood-fired pizzas! Nicely charred with a delicate crust that is crispy yet chewy, topped with really tasty ingredients, awesome treat for the evening๐Ÿ’• Spread that runny egg ๐Ÿณon the carbonara & we really enjoyed it! As for the rockets & parma, I also love the balance of sweet & savoury in that option! โฃ

๐Ÿฆ€ Crab Pappardelle- Saffron cream, Chives ($36). My 2nd favourite. The dish looks so innocent & I was secretly judging it when it was served since I canโ€™t see any crab bits at first glance. But was pleasantly surprised by the distinctive crab fragrance and al dente pasta. Seafood or crab lovers should really try this!

๐Ÿฅฉ Tagliatelle- 24hr braised beef ragu & parmigiano ($32). My favourite pasta of the night ๐Ÿ’• I was never a tomato-based pasta person, but I actually like this alot given its super flavourful & tender beef ragu๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Birthday celeb at this cosy Italian Pasta kitchen which serves hand-made pasta! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป
First heard of them from a friend, but took me a while to finally drop by as they are always full! ๐Ÿคฉ

Secured a Mon 830pm slot eventually & was so excited to try everything on their menu. Started our meal with their Roasted Potato ๐Ÿฅ” with Guanciale & Ricotta ($14), we actually enjoyed this the most that evening. I guess u will never get too wrong with carbs as starters๐Ÿ˜œ

Hereโ€™s the 2 Gelato Flavours that we got!โฃโฃ

However I was pleasantly surprised to find out that it doesnโ€™t taste like sorbet at all & its really creamy & good๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป The dark choc flavour was intense and not too sweet, u really canโ€™t tell that its dairy free if u dun mention it! โฃโฃ

๐ŸŒผ Based on their recommendation, we also got the ๐‡๐จ๐ง๐ž๐ฒ ๐‚๐ก๐ซ๐ฒ๐ฌ๐š๐ง๐ญ๐ก๐ž๐ฆ๐ฎ๐ฆ & ๐‚๐š๐œ๐š๐จ ๐๐ข๐›๐ฌ! Super intense Chrysanthemum taste, folks who love this drink will love this flavour. While the flavour was intense, it wasnโ€™t too sweet & the addition of cacao bits kind of enhanced the texture and make each bite really pleasant. โฃโฃ

๐Ÿง‡ Their freshly baked waffle was on the thinner & chewier side, would prefer it to be more crispy & fluffy! Need to try their cone next time๐Ÿฆโฃโฃ

Booked through @chopesg & they are currently having a 1-1 promo till 31mar! Hereโ€™s what we tried in order of my most preferred to least: โฃ

I honestly find all the dishes pretty good & I enjoyed all of them ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸปBut if you need me to choose, I think both of their meat dishes were delish๐Ÿคค โฃ
Crispy skin with juicy & succulent lean meat, perfect for someone like me who dislikes too much fats in my meat! The pork belly was fragrant and soft & the duck confit was tender and niceโค๏ธโฃ
Their pastas were quite good too, flavourful & al dente! ๐Ÿ

Enjoyed dining there in general and find it really value for money with the 1-1 promo! Can check it out if you are looking for somewhere different๐Ÿ˜‰

This ring shaped pasta was served with Iberico Pork sauteฬed with parma ham, broccoli ๐Ÿฅฆ & peas in mint olive oil & topped with parmesan!โฃ
Mint is a big NO NO for me, however as the dish was really savoury & of quality, for the first time I concede defeat and gave in to the mint taste so that I donโ€™t forgo the entire forest ๐ŸŒณ The dish will be perfect for me without the use of mint๐Ÿ˜‚โฃ

Both linguine options were not bad, but we were more surprised by the latter which came with chicken sausage & beef pepperoni in SUPER spicy marinara sauce! ๐ŸŒถ when it first came, we all thought it was tomato based, till we took our first mouth, it was fiery hot but shiok๐Ÿ˜†โฃ
