It's reliable and good, but not exceptional or great. So even if they don't quite garner awards for the best Italian fare around, they do serve up pretty decent stuff. Traditional stuff, that is. Because they focus on the traditional and eschew the modern. While dinners aren't particularly easy on the wallet, they offer a very reasonably-priced weekday set lunch at $35++ for 2 courses and $45++ for 3 courses. The downside of the very-value-for-money set lunch offer is that service tends towards the choppy and harried during busy weekday lunches.
1) Zuppa di Funghi:
mushroom soup - creamy and aromatic. love the drizzle of truffle oil in this!
2) Insalata di Cesare
: baby romaine lettuce laden generously with shreds of parboiled salmon and bacon bits, and dressed in a traditional aioli - substantive and refreshing
3) Penne Carbonara
: right balance of egg yolk, cream, and parmesan
4) Aqua Pazza
: lightly battered and fried hake fish doused in a tomato seafood broth with capers, olives and herbs. A lemon wedge lent acidity
5) Agnello alla Griglia con Arrosto Patate
; grilled lamb served alongside a minty yoghurt raita and roasted baby potatoes: lamb was fresh and tender, with a beautiful charring and smokine
