Heaven for truffle lovers!

Oh my. Just crossing the restaurant threshold I was bowled over by the smell of truffles. Black winter truffles, it turns out. The best of season of the year. What a lucky girl I am.

For an appetizer, my husband and I shared the mozzerela buffala with truffle center and herbs. It was a generous sized portion for two. It was exquisite. Words do not describe the creamy meltiness with truffle goodness that this possessed. Close my eyes and groan good. Really.

They have a nice choice of house wines, including the option of a carafe- rare in Singapore. We took a bottle of the house red for $75 which was good value and a nice dinner wine.

For my main, I had the TAJARIN Piedmont thin Egg-noodles with fresh Winter Black Truffles. My only complaint was I have a small stomach and I couldn't finish it. Perfectly cooked fine egg noodles with truffles. Wonderful.

We shared the truffle gelato, which was very good, but I think just a step too far for us- we were starting to OD on truffles.

The ambiance is more homey Italian restaurant, not stuffy or gaudy decor. Personally, I find it a welcome change from all the 'luxury' decor in Singapore. I will definitely be going back!

Suave Italian food that makes one wax lyrical

It's one of the best meals I've had in 2013, with strong and solid flavours assailing my tastebuds every dish. We had the 1) Casa Risotto - a rich dish filled with Sea urchin and Black truffle. Very delicious with complementing textures and flavours 2) Black Tarjarin - handmade egg noodles cooked in sage and butter, topped with shaved truffle. SO simple yet extremely tasty. This dish is a must try. 3) Fiorentina - a crazy 1 kg T bone steak to share, and the meat was done nicely, still soft with blood inside for medium rare. It was flavourful but nothing too fantastic. For desserts, we ordered: 4) Truffle Gelato 5) Tiramisu 6) Pistachio ice cream 7) Chocolate tart 8) Lemon Tart where the truffle gelato stole the show with its overpowering scent and taste of truffle in a smooth blend of vanilla. The rest of the desserts were tasty and velvety rich as well, and literally nothing was left behind. Haha!

Mushroom truffle soup

Delicious

Warm & attentive service. Any restaurant that serves complimentary warm bread sits well with me. Food is pretty solid - we enjoyed our carbonara & cod dishes especially the creamy carbonara. Mushroom truffle soup was alright, nothing to shout about. For 2 persons, we spent just over $100 (no drinks). Pricey for a weekday dinner.. Probably return on a special occasion.

Disappointing Experience

I was in the area and decided to give this place a shot. 

To begin with, the service was lacklustre. After eventually getting the server's attention, I ordered their signature fettucine cabonara, which turned out to be a colossal disappointment. The fettucine was not al dente and the truffle carbonara sauce was flat, stodgy and lacking in flavour. 

Given that the dishes on the menu was on the pricey and the food was mediocre at best, this place does not warrant a return.

Food was good. Service was average.

Food was good - angel hair pasta with Tuna Bottarga was really nice and strong. Service was efficient and friendly. But I do wished that one of the staff would calm down instead of being hurried and late for something.
Loved the small diner feel.

However, the night I was there, there was a family with a toddler that was bored and hence created a ruckus. I don't blame the child, but the parents who left it to the helper/nanny to deal with the child. Didn't appreciate the child screaming when we wanted to eat in quiet.

For that, i would have rated this place as excellent. Instead it was just average.
