Buono Pizzabar and Ristorante has been a long time fixture at Serangoon, and when you have been around for several years, you have definitely done something right.
I paid a recent visit to try some of the classics and started with the Portobello Mushroom with crabmeat and gorgonzola cheese sauce. Bite sized mushrooms topped with a strong blue cheese finish that is bound to open your tastebuds.
From the pasta menu I tried the - Linguine Seafood in Aluminium Foil. Yet another classic in which the goodness is retained in the foil, with a flush of fresh seafood aroma when the food is served.
Better though was the Fetuccine Prawns with Porcini Mushrooms, Truffle in a cream sauce. I love my cream, and this classic with truffle is a dish that just cannot go wrong.
For my main course I had the Lamb Chops Cibrales, fresh pieces of lamb done medium yet still retaining its juices. It also does not have the gamy after taste, a testimony to the use of quality ingredients.
Finally from the pizza menu , I tried the Buono Pizza , a cream based thin-crust pizza with home-made pork sausages, fresh mushrooms, cherry tomato topped with Mozarella Cheese and rocket salad.
Overall, expect quality Italian cooking from this no-frills set-up with family-style friendly service. The laid back atmosphere also provides more reason for you to have that post meal drinks – and Buono provides a wide assortment of quality yet affordable wines fit for your individual palette.
