From pastas to pizzas to desserts to finish off your meal with. are generally good, Buono Pizza Bar & Italian Restaurant provides you a variety of choices and leave with a contented full belly. With the decor being very cosy, you'll like the atmosphere.
We chanced upon this driving through the estate. two words came to mind -- rustic charm. i like how it's hidden away from the flummery, especially serangoon gardens with too many restaurants and people. food was served with care and attention, service was stellar. shall return soon. didn't hurt that we had free pizza that day haha.
I'm a lover of Italian Pasta and was pleasantly surprised that the quality of the pasta here is way better than what you normally get elsewhere in restaurants. Although the price is a little higher than the usually $16 to $20 for restaurants, it's definitely worth it.
We tried the carbonara and the curry pasta. Carbonara was very full-flavour and reminds me of the pasta I had in Italy. Not too dry nor too wet, well-balanced. As for the curry pasta, we thought it's gonna taste weird but was amazed how well it blended into the pasta dish. Will definitely return.
Only problem is the aircon is a little weak and it was too warm to stay longer in the restaurant.
When my friend told me that we are going for Italian food near some resident area. My first impression is it will be just another pizza / pasta restaurant. And boy I was wrong.
There were 4 of us and when the when the chef ask what do we like to order. My friend just let the chef decide the menu. At first, I was not sure about my friend’s decision. But only later I found out that was his best decision yet.
The appetizer was Portobello mushroom with cheese. The mushroom was perfectly cooked and when you served with cheese, that cheesy and mushroom texture is something that I can eat all day.
For the pasta, the chef has recommended seafood linguine. The pasta was warp in an aluminum foil when cooked. This method is to keep the entire flavor sealed inside the linguine and that makes it so flavorful. We also had the pasta that looks like Ban Mien (Chinese pasta) that served seafood. It is very interesting to see something the Ban Mien served in Italian style. Kudos to the chef.
The main course is no other than the lamp chops. Perfectly cooked and seasoned. This is one fine lamp chops. With this lamp chop, it just nicely satisfied meat my craving after those pastas.
Just when I thought the variety is a bit short. The pizza came out just in time to save the day. The pizza was no ordinary pizza. It was Buono Pizza. A cream based thin crust pizza. This is my first time having pizza that is not using tomato as based and immediately I felt in love with this pizza. The pizza also have some homemade sausage pork sausages that give the meaty taste and texture to meat lover like me.
I totally recommend Buono pizzabar and Ristorante. And I will let the chef decide on my menu for my revisit. I am sure he will continue to surprise me with his long list of menu.
