Chef Osvaldo Forlino's family ran trattoria offers a dining concept of charging diners a standard rate of $98++ for a meal made up of more than 10 dishes.
amazing evening at No Menu
is our first try after few of our friend's feedback - we drop by without reservations but recommended to do so! just because the place is always packed even on weekday
great service team, every dish is yummy even their bread :)
and we like the small and cosy family restaurant!

While the ambience, service and food are rustic and casual like a trattoria, expect prices that of a ristorante.
The food was heartily portioned, and bore classical tendencies. Traditional cuisine aside, the prices didn't quite commensurate with the quality of the food. The food was good, no doubt, but it was just a tad overpriced. Held up against La Strada or Garibaldi where the fare is generally more refined and pricing comparable, No Menu just doesn't seem competitive enough.
1) Burrata ($60): A must-order, and considering that I don't even like burrata, that's saying something! It was chewy and creamy and clear and luscious in its simplicity. Seasoned lightly with sea salt, freshly milled pepper and a fantastic olive oil, the milky burrata was contrasted with the sweet tang of tomatoes and crisp mesclun greens.
2) Prosciutto e Melone ($30): juicy rock melons, crunchy pears and swathes of silky parma ham ribbons enlivened by a drizzling of piquant balsamic vinegar.
3) Linguine alla Vongole ($48): a daily off-menu special, brimming with the garlicky sauciness of plump fresh clams and white wine. It may have been a little pricey, but it was worth noting that this was also generously laden with about a gazillion clams.
4) Tagliatelle con Funghi Porcini ($31): velvety buttery sauce accented with the earthiness of the porcini mushrooms.
5) Risotto con Spinaci e Salame Piccante ($30): al dente, the subtle spice of the salami was countered by the fresh tomato dice and spinach, but failed to be outstanding. It was just lacking the extra oomph, in that I could hardly make out any discernible salami past the bits of spiced mince
with so many italian restaurants in this area, I find this restaurant overpriced for the " fresh ingredients "
furthermore,.I discover they also own the cheaper italian diner down the road so possibly better to dine there unless there is a need to impress your dining partner.
There are better value for italian restaurants in this area
that said, the service is really good so be prepared to fork out lots of money for that
