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!
