I and my girlfriend went on treasure hunt one night and the reward was to find Bollicine, hidden behind the huge Rivergate estate on the other bank of the river compare to the Riverview hotel in Havelock rd. When we saw the place from far we thought it was probably the most charming Italian restaurant that we have encoutered since we live in Singapore (6 years). We was welcomed ar the door by two very gentle girls and showed our table near the glass wall the face the river side.
we waited a bit long for our wine bottle which was opened with a POP (!) but it was indeed an interesting tuscany wine reserva.
As usual we shared all our courses starting from the raw tuna salad, the best western raw salad we had so far, tender and very fresh tuna concocted with a tangy lime and what i guessed were capers and garlic sauce, amazing, the waitress told us this is a famous recipe of the chef owner, we agreed it deserved the fame.
I'd ordered the tortelli Crema and parma ham, they are really hand made, fresh and simply yummy! The pizza Quattro Stagioni, which I was told is also the name of their chain of delis, was crisp, thin and very well balanced with enough toppings , tomato and fresh mozzarella. We ordered linguine seafood in tomato sauce and hey, al dente! fresh seafood and not too much tomato sauce made it unforgettable.
The dessert was a tiramisu which did not kick me off the chair but pleasant and a double scoop of gelato of the best quality, they have a ice cream machine and they make their own gelato. We will be back with friends, for sure!
