Good but not great traditional fare

See the full review at http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.com

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.
 
 We had:

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

Made an online reservation for a birthday celebration on second day of Chinese new year. Reservation was confirmed a month in advance. Just a couple of days before the dinner reservation, the restaurant called to say they are closed and offered a table on the first day of CNY. Couldn't explain why they are closed on second day and yet opened on first day. Just said they made a mistake. Unprofessional and unreliable. Book at your own risk if you are planning a celebration.

Perfect traditional Tuscan cuisine

Overall: 8.8/10   Procacci of Firenze fame has been raved about since its establishment in Singapore in late 2010, and rightly so. Lovers of Italian fine dining will delight in the impressive selection in the wine list and the traditional yet creative Tuscan cuisine. Its prime location in Customs House offers beautiful views of Marina Bay and the financial district - come just before sunset and grab an alfresco seat for the full experience. Combined with their irreproachable service - all the staff I spoke to were genuinely friendly and helpful - I definitely see myself returning to Procacci soon. Perhaps the only disappointment was that there were no vegan desserts. Focaccia Bread


The golden focaccia bread was skilfully executed in terms of both texture and taste - It was extremely crunchy and crusty on the outside, yet perfectly soft on the inside and retaining its fluffiness with every bite. Rosemary, black olives and tomatoes lent a classic flavour. Focaccia bread can be either dry or slightly oily, and this belonged to the former. Dip it liberally in the olive oil and balsamic vinegar, or the delicious herbed black olive paste. For my fellow vegans: I checked to ensure the focaccia bread contained no dairy, but you might want to check again to be sure, or if they are serving another type of bread. (Complimentary)   Zuppa di Farro con Porcini al Tartufo

The alluring waft of truffle oil hit me the second the dish was set in front of me. Chewy, al dente barley and tiny cubes of diced carrot mix with earthy, meaty slices of porcini mushroom in a creamy potato soup base. The portion size was satisfying. Highly recommended. ($17)   Spaghetti with Arrabiatta Sauce and Grilled Vegetables


I custom-made this pasta as there were no vegan options on the menu. I love simple dishes executed flawlessly - these are often the most difficult to find. It was the most perfectly al dente spaghetti I've had in a long time - personally, dishes like this elevate the often neglected noodle to the status of a prized delicacy. Grilled juicy eggplant soaked up the arrabiatta sauce while crunchy red and yellow capsicum cubes sweetened the dish. If you're vegan, feel free to use your creativity and tell the staff what you would like. ($28)   Conclusion: Procacci is a must if you love traditional Italian food. Or, for some strange reason, you don't and you need some convincing.
