Local celebrity chef Peter Neo's latest venture is a take on semi-fine Italian dining, while keeping prices affordable. Get to taste a diverse range of Italian classics ranging from Zuppa di Mare, Spaghetti alle Vongole and Prosciutto & Melone, as well as freshly baked wood-fired pizzas.
Been here twice so far. The linguine aglio olio is done just perfectly. Good amount of chili, not too much garlic. Lasagna has a bit too much tomato for my taste, but then again i always preferred oil-based to tomato sauces. Pizzas are done very well too.
Good lunchtime 1 for 1 promo that covers over 2 thirds of their menu. Only during weekdays though. Whether you're paying an average of 12-14 dollars a main course during lunch, or the full 24-28 at dinner, it's worth a visit.
Lastly, parking is very easy and it's a dead quiet area. Perfect for a relaxing meal
The first impression of the place was good. There was valet parking which helped a lot, given the very limited parking available.
The seafood soup had a good flavour. But the prawn didn't taste fresh.
Other dishes ordered were not to our liking.
1. The bread served had a unappealing oil taste and it was not warm.
2. Calamari fritti - the crust become soggy after a while. Amount of sauce (size of a bigger Chinese soup spoon) was so little compared to the portion of the calamari.
3. Spaghetti alla carbonara - no bacon taste and the amount of bacon was little. There was no much taste to the dish.
4. Pizza Carnivora - we find it too oily for a pizza. Taste-wise, it's nothing to fave about.
And we felt that the service staff was quite pushy to get us to order more.
overall, we weren't impressed given the prices, portion size and quality of the dishes.
My husband and I visited the restaurant after reading plenty of good reviews about the food at Pietro's and their 1-for-1 lunch promotion sounded like a really good deal. But it turns out that perhaps the place might have more rave than it deserves.
We arrived to the busy restaurant and were quickly seated. As we perused the menu we were impressed by their wide selection of pastas and pizzas and we were pretty excited because we love good Italian food after spending some time in Italy ourselves. In the end we ordered Fettuccine Tricolori al Vino Bianco and Fettuccine Alfredo con Gamberi. Service was also pretty good on promptness in providing us with the menu and taking orders. Sadly that was as good as things got- an extensive menu and prompt taking of orders.
We waited over half an hour but we didn't really mind since we were having a leisurely lunch but when the food finally came it was disappointing. Several strands of fettuccine were undercooked- I like my fettuccine al dente alright, but in this case some of the strands were hard and raw inside. The sauces were both tasty enough but both plates were scant of ingredients. The Tricolori al Vino Bianco had several pieces of ham and 3 small half baby tomatoes while the Alfredi con Gamberi had 3 small (baby?) tiger prawns. I didn't send the food back because goodness knows how long it would take it to come back out again so we ate what we could and left.
Even with the 1-for-1, I doubt I'll ever be going back ahead again. Not with the many better Italian options we have in Singapore. But perhaps we just had two bad dishes out of their extensive menu since the place seemed pretty busy when we left too.
This Italian restaurant is hidden in some out of place shop house, but then it is quite well known to the neighboring office workers. With their weekday 1-for-1 lunch promotion, it is quite reasonably priced.
The food is not bad too, but the portion is a bit small. For guys a spaghetti may not be enough to fill the stomach.
