We had one of their Signature Pizzas, topped with 𝐌𝐮𝐬𝐡𝐫𝐨𝐨𝐦𝐬, 𝐓𝐫𝐮𝐟𝐟𝐥𝐞, 𝐌𝐚𝐬𝐜𝐚𝐫𝐩𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐓𝐮𝐬𝐜𝐚𝐧 𝐏𝐞𝐜𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐨 ($35). My carnivorous partner opted to add on 𝐏𝐚𝐫𝐦𝐚 𝐇𝐚𝐦 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐒𝐦𝐨𝐤𝐞𝐝 𝐌𝐨𝐳𝐳𝐚𝐫𝐞𝐥𝐥𝐚 ($9) as well 😂 This was delightfully doughy and we both loved the chewy texture of it. Overall, it was an extremely well balanced pizza with the truffle flavour being just right and not overwhelming the rest of the ingredients. We absolutely loved this and would return to try other pizzas in the future. 😋

Another dish we ordered was their homemade artisanal pasta, the 𝐋𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐮𝐢𝐧𝐞 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐂𝐥𝐚𝐦𝐬, 𝐂𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐫𝐲 𝐓𝐨𝐦𝐚𝐭𝐨𝐞𝐬 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐎𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐠𝐞 ($32). I was pleasantly surprised because this dish is typically cooked with olive oil, white wine and chilli flakes but the pairing of flavours here was refreshing and delicious. On my first bite, the citrusy taste from the orange hit me and surprisingly balanced out the brininess from the clams. The cherry tomatoes were also well seasoned and were deliciously sweet. Overall, an extremely well executed dish. 😍

Popped by Basilico a while back using a #ChopeDealsSG voucher. I’ve heard such good things about their food, and they didn’t disappoint indeed.

We had the 𝐙𝐮𝐩𝐩𝐚 𝐝𝐢 𝐏𝐞𝐬𝐜𝐞 ($38) which was a southern Italian-style seafood stew topped with generous chunks of sea bass, salmon, mussels, prawns and scallops. The seafood was all insanely fresh and I absolutely loved slurping the stew up. It made for such a hearty dinner.

Next, we ordered the 𝐖𝐚𝐠𝐲𝐮 𝐁𝐞𝐞𝐟 𝐋𝐚𝐬𝐚𝐠𝐧𝐚 ($34). It’s one of their signature dishes with 12-hour slow-cooked wagyu beef ragout topped with fontina cheese fondue. This was also a hit, with us devouring it within minutes.

Overall, 8.5/10! Although the food is slightly pricey, we would say that it is well worth the price. The ambience was also pretty cozy, perfect for a dinner date out.

We had the 𝐁𝐮𝐫𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐚 ($24) which consisted of a ball of creamy burratina, topped with caramelized onions and pesto. Literally the perfect combination! We were so amazed at how every component of the dish melded beautifully together 🥰

Another one of their signature dishes was the 𝐖𝐡𝐨𝐥𝐞 𝐖𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐭 𝐒𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐜𝐜𝐢 ($28). The sauce consisted of a delightful mix of prawns, n’duja and red wine and was absolutely yummy.

Tried out Limoncello the other day and they definitely didn’t disappoint! We were seated alfresco and absolutely loved the decor in the place; it was definitely the right choice for a romantic date out.

On top of that, the food was pretty good as well. Pictured is the 𝐋𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐮𝐢𝐧𝐞 𝐀𝐥 𝐆𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐡𝐢𝐨 ($28), and the choice of gluten free pasta was also available, which I opted for! Piled with a generous serving of fresh crabmeat in a light bisque sauce, their rendition was one of the better pastas I’ve had in Singapore so far. I’m definitely keen to come back and try their other dishes in the future.
