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

Our group had dinner in the homely private dining room upstairs. The best things about the evening were the superb friendly and proactive service, and the focaccia! The mains - be it asparagus risotto or chicken milanesa - were decent, but nothing to write home about. There are many better Italian restaurants around, including in the CBD.
